The Delaware House Bill 359 – legislation that would modernize the Delaware physical therapy act – is being strongly opposed by the acupuncturists over the issue of dry needling. Legislators are being provided misleading information about the education and qualifications of physical therapists! Even if you do not personally perform dry needling, it is imperative we support our colleague who do. HB 359 has passed out of a critical House Committee and will next considered by the Delaware House of Representative within the next few days! If it passes the House, it will then go over to the Senate for consideration. The Delaware Physical Therapy Association strongly SUPPORTS HB 359.
