Dry Needling Initiative

GOTA is investigating the possibility of opening our practice act to include dry needling for OT. We are addressing the following questions:
1. What is the interest in dry needling among OT/OTAs in Georgia?
2. How is dry needling currently being used within OT?
3. What does the evidence say about the use/effectiveness of dry needling?
4. How would this be reimbursed?
5. What education/training will be required?
6. Would dry needling be taught in schools?
7. How would competency be determined?
8. What guidelines do other states have?
