We have been providing Dry Needling for our clients since 2017.  Please visit Comprehensive Rehab of Wilson and let Eileen Rodri Carter, PT, DPT, MBA help you with your musculoskeletal needs. 

Eileen, as a member of the NCPTA, has been a part of a lawsuit with the North Carolina Acupuncture Licensing Board in regards to the protection of our clients’ access in NC. 

For nearly four years, the NCPTA has pursued a federal antitrust lawsuit against the North Carolina Acupuncture Licensing Board to protect our clients’ access to dry needling.  The long-running fight is over, and  the NCPTA has won for our clients.

On March 5, 2019, the Acupuncture Board finally yielded to the NCPTA’s demands. In a settlement agreement that is binding on all of its current and future members, the Acupuncture Board agreed to stop sending cease-and-desist letters to physical therapists who offer dry needling, and it agreed to honor the North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision that dry needling is within the scope of practice of physical therapy. In addition, the Acupuncture Board must pay the NCPTA a six-figure settlement.

“This tremendous victory-including the monetary settlement-sends a powerful message to those who would seek to prevent our patients from receiving the treatment they need: No matter how tough the fight, no matter how long it takes, the NCPTA will always stand up for our patients’ access to care.”  Kyle Covington, PT, DPT, PhD, NCPTA President
