PT Practice Act – HB 18-1155 Update

Posted: April 6, 2018

HB 18-1155 is currently on the table (still being deliberated on) in the Senate Health & Human Services Committee. Intense debate was heard last week, primary in opposition to the inclusion of dry needling in to the Statutory Language of the PT Practice Act from Acupuncturists and acupuncture interest groups.

As a reminder, PT’s can utilize dry needling in Colorado, and this is currently due to Rule 211, but it is not specifically included in statute (in the PT Practice Act). HB 18-1155 (yes it is called a house bill, but has cleared the house and is now in the senate), in its current formwill codify include into statute dry needling and also Diagnosis by PT’s, an updated legislative declaration of the scope of PT Practice in CO and affirm the role of PTA’s in wound care (not sharp debridement) and having a representative on the PT Board.

A legislative call to action went out Tuesday morning (4/3/18), providing a simple and very time efficient way for you to contact your Senate legislator and ask them to support HB 18-1155. If you have not done this yet, or if the e-mail went to spam or somewhere else… please find it and act!
