Telehealth- We testified in support of Telehealth and got it extended by 2 additional years to allow PTs to continue to provide care due to barriers that prevent them from attending in person.


State Compact- We testified in support and have cleared the 1st stage of PTs being added to the list of professions being considered to join the State Compact. We are hopeful next year the DPH will finalize this. This would allow PTs to practice in ANY state that is also part of the State Compact and reduce barriers to practice. 

Dry Needling- We have passed the initial review and are pending an appeal that is still being decided. But we are hopeful that the DPH will rule that Dry Needling is within the Scope of Practice of PTs.

We are also working on other updates to our Scope of Practice to further improve the practice of Physical Therapy in Connecticut!
