The latest compliance updates for physical, occupational, and speech therapy practices in New Jersey. 

  • 20 Jan 2022 3:36 PM | Zachary Edgar (Administrator)

    P.L. 2021,c.382 was signed by Governor Murphy on January 18, 2022 which permits physical therapists to perform dry needling under certain circumstances. The law becomes effective 90 days from January 18, 2022. 

    Under this statute a licensed physical therapist must complete a continuing education and competency program approved by the New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners.  The law requires board approved dry needling continuing education and competency programs, which include at least 40 hours of academic instruction, attendance in person by a physical therapist, and the ability to complete the program in no more than two years. The programs are also required to include a minimum of 40 hours in practical hands-on instruction, under the direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist who has a minimum of five years of clinical experience in the performance of dry needling or by a physician licensed to practice medicine and surgery in this State, in the application of technique of dry needling. 

    Licensees must complete a total of 80 hours from Board Approved dry needling continuing education and competency programs to qualify to practice dry needling in New Jersey.  The Board approved dry needling continuing education and/or competency courses/programs at its May 24, 2022 meeting.

    If you complete a course/program and it is not approved by the Board, it will not be in compliance with the law. Please check the Board’s website for updates regarding dry needling and dry needling continuing education and/or competency programs under Continuing Education and Frequently Asked Questions.
