In September 2009, the New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners determined that dry needling is within the scope of physical therapy practice. The decision of the New Jersey Board has been challenged by the acupuncture lobby.
On February 9, 2017, the Attorney General of New Jersey issued a statement that physical therapists are not authorized to engage in the practice of dry needling.
