Hello Idaho PTs and PTAs,

Finally, after much time, effort, and study, we are introducing legislation to the legislature that will allow therapists in the state of Idaho to join the neighboring states of Wyoming, Utah, Montana, and Nevada in providing dry needling services for their patients. I know many have inquired about when this would be coming for Idaho. The time is now. However, getting this right for Idaho therapists to become law does not come cheap. We are working with our lobbyists to make this happen. The costs for this type of service and the legislative process are $30,000 to start.

I invite you to join me in donating to this cause. We have created a campaign to make donations easy. All money donated goes directly toward our legislative and lobbying expenses. No money will go toward operating costs of the IPTA. The time has never been better for us to introduce this legislation and we must strike while the "Iron is Hot". In order to do this, we need your support. Please donate and invite, challenge, beg your colleagues and friends (whatever it takes) to do the same whether they are members of the APTA/IPTA or not. This will benefit all therapists and their patients throughout the state. Thank you.
