Job site needling (without OSHA recordable)

      Hello,
      I was trained by IDN in 2016 and have had good results in the outpatient world. I just took a job doing on-site injury prevention at a factory.

      Does anyone know if dry needling can be completed before an injury (patient is sore but not a true injury) to prevent an OSHA recordable event? Or does completing dry needling automatically count as treatment and it becomes recordable injury?

      An example that seems to show how this would be OK is that MLB pitchers get dry needled a certain timeframe before pitching. This is prevention, not treating injury.

      What are your thoughts? Any documentation on this to provide to the manufacturing facility would be great. Thank you

      Nathan
