Dry Needling Update

The Alaska state physical therapy and occupational therapy licensing board recently released a disappointing position statement regarding the use of dry needling by OTs. We understand how this may negatively affect some of your practice areas, so please reach out to AKOTA board members with your concerns, questions, or comments. AKOTA is actively addressing OT scope of practice updates and will need your support, so stay tuned for a call to action! We appreciate your membership and will continue to keep you posted on any legislative updates and action items. Read the State Board’s position statement HERE.
