State & Board Approvals

State & Board Approvals

Scope of Practice
The American Physical Therapy Association states that dry needling & manipulation are within the scope of practice for a Physical Therapist. Several other health professions cite that dry needling & manipulation are within their specific scope of practice as well. There are however, specific U.S. state rules, regulations and guidelines that do not permit the practice of dry needling and/or manipulation. It is your responsibility to know, understand and practice within the specific rules, regulations and guidelines of your state, jurisdiction and professional license.

Intricate Art Spine & Body Solutions is solely an educational resource to provide the knowledge and technical skills necessary to deliver safe and effective dry needling and manipulation treatment. Intricate Art Spine & Body Solutions does not make policy, claims, or interpretation on professional licensure or scope of practice. Intricate Art Spine & Body Solutions encourages all participants to contact their licensing board for official positions and rulings related to the practice of dry needling and spinal manipulation.

For PT’s:
As of January 1, 2020, the FSBPT (Pro cert.) and the APTA no longer approve CE courses. Currently, states either:
1) Require their own specific approval.
2) (this is most common) They accept courses approved by any other state sub-chapter of the APTA, which all of our courses have.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this new system of course certification. It is the registrants’ responsibility to understand their specific state requirements and to request any specific state certification upon signing up for the course.

States Requiring Specific State Certification: If you live in one of these states: LA, MN, NJ, NY, NV, OH, or TX, your state requires CE courses to have a specific state certification. We are certified in all these states.

Please see below for a list of states where our CEU's are currently accepted either due to specific certification or due to reciprocity: If you do not see your state below or your state requires specific course certification, please contact us prior to signing up. Course numbers are listed for states requiring specific certification, or states using online CE systems like CE Broker. It is the registrants’ responsibility to understand their specific state requirements and to double check with their state board if the particular course they are interested in is certified in their state. Again, we are more than happy to acquire any certification requested by upcoming participants, just let us know.
