#THIRDTHURSDAY: Dry Needling in Illinois (POSTPONED)


We regret that, due to a governmental delay in moving the draft rules for dry needling forward, we have to postpone the #THIRDTHURSDAY session scheduled for this Thursday, January 18th.

At the December 5, 2017 meeting of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation’s Physical Therapy Licensing Board, we were assured by the IDFPR’s legal counsel that the draft rules were complete and would be sent to the Governor’s office for review within the next week.  After hearing nothing, we followed up last week and were informed that they have not been finalized and, therefore, cannot be provided to us yet. 

This is most disappointing, as we know that many licensed PT’s are trying to determine if their completed dry needling education meets the new requirements and, if not, how they must meet the deficits.  We share in the frustration caused by this delay and assure you that we will reschedule this #THIRDTHURSDAY meeting as soon as the draft rules become available. 

Once we have the draft rules, we will work to get the meeting scheduled within a week and the meeting will offer a virtual attendance option as well as be recorded for those who cannot participate on that day. 

Again, we apologize for the cancellation and, in the interim, please send specific questions relating to dry needling to, subject line “dry needling” and we will forward them directly to the IDFPR’s legal counsel for review.
