Dry Needling Rulings


Is Dry Needling Legal in Indiana?
  • In August 2012, the Indiana Physical Therapy Committee declared that "Indiana does not take a position on dry needling and does not offer a certification for this practice. The current Indiana statute is open and does not specifically state whether of not it is appropriate. The statue is up to interpretation and any PT who is interested in needling should consult their legal counsel. If someone was brought before the Committee for an incident resulting from using needling, the Committee would ask them what their qualifications were and determine if they were adequately educated in needling."
