KinetaCore serves only as an educational resource to clinicians and does not make any claim on professional licensure. It is always the practitioner’s responsibility to determine what is within their scope of practice. Participants are allowed to learn any technique through continuing education, but whether or not they can use this technique in their patient practice is determined by current licensing bodies. KinetaCore is a strong advocate of advancing the field of physical therapy and will encourage physical therapists to continue to be advocates for their profession.
If you have specific questions about your scope of practice, please contact your licensing board. KinetaCore recommends each practitioner be knowledgeable in their licensing body’s current decisions and rulings.
For further information and experience with KinetaCore’s Functional Dry Needling® we invite you to attend one of our Level 1 FDN training courses.
