Q&A: Dry Needling and Chiropractic in New York State

A member poses, and then asks. . .

I have a question about dry needling. What is the current position regarding scope of practice?  I am in the process of being trained.  I cannot find anything in the literature in New York state (OP, BoE, etc.) that states that we cannot perform this as chiropractors.  I ‘m not seeing anything that says we can either. I have been doing EMGs since 2013 so I know were allowed to needle for diagnostics, are we able to for treatment purposes as well?  Is this just something that has been looked over?  Ignored?

Q: May chiropractors who have been trained in dry needling, perform dry needling on patients in New York state?
