Dry Needling FAQs
In May of 2016, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed legislation (CCR 2615) clarifies that dry needling is within the scope of practice of physical therapists in Kansas. Over the years, dry needling has been challenged in Kansas and this was a great resolution to many years of hard work. The final piece of this legislation was the implementation of rules and regulations for dry needling. On April 14th of 2017, the dry needling rules and regulations were passed by the Board of Healing Arts (BOHA). These rules and regulations were based upon the work and collaboration of the KPTA, Physical Therapy Advisory Council (PTAC) and the BOHA.
These new regulations went into effect May 12, 2017. If you are dry needling or plan to dry needle, you need to understand these regulations. KPTA has developed a Frequently Asked Questions resource.Click here to download the document.
