Why Should You Care?

In many states where PTs are performing so-called Dry Needling, they are now adding distal points, leaving needles in place for 30 minutes and even treating things like sinus congestion.  This is acupuncture!

The Physical Therapy profession and services are totally integrated into western medicine and their referral network is strong.  At this time, the healthcare delivery model favors PT’s.  It is true that Acupuncture referrals and utilization is growing; and that more Acupuncture is available through the Veterans Admin, Health Clinics, ERs and even hospitals, but that is all about to change; and not for the better.  Dry needling is the practice of Acupuncture and PT’s have big plans to expanding how it is used to treat a whole array of patients’ health concerns.

Please Continue to Support the Legal Defense Fund

  • The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has an ANNUAL $50 Million budget  to represent the PT Profession. 

  • Universal State Licensing for Physical Therapists to perform Dry Needling is a national priority for the APTA,

  • They will fight year-after-year to perform Dry Needling/Acupuncture in Florida. 

  • This is a NEW kind of challenge to Acupuncture

  • Without dedication and monthly donations to support a Legal Defense,  other professions will soon follow after Physical Therapists and begin performing dry needling/acupuncture in Florida with little or no advanced training.

Consider your pledge based on the # of patients you treat monthly.
50 Patients in your Files? Donate $.50 each or $25 per month or a $1 per and make it $50.
If we average $40 per month from only 375 APs we will reach our goal.

Fundraising Goal is a minimum: $15,000 / monthly – there are over 2500 AP licensed in Florida. Even $5 per month will help.

Upwards of 1,000,000 Floridians routinely benefit from regular Acupuncture care.

Sustained donations averaging $10 week or $40 month from 375 APs (15% of FL Profession) will provide funding for the crucial legal representation the whole Florida profession requires at this time.
