TDN Regulations Appropriate for PT

These regulations are appropriate to allow safe practice of Dry Needling by trained Physical Therapists. PTs have thorough training and understanding in human anatomy and the additional evaluation and safety training provided by current dry needling coursework allows for safe, effective, and appropriate treatment to be provided for patients that would benefit from this intervention.
