News from your State Board regarding spinal rehabilitation

The most recent meeting of The New York State Board for Chiropractic was October 2009 in NYC.

One of the Boards functions is to help chiropractors in New York State with the many questions they may have about licensing, scope of practice, advertising and other practice issues. At this meeting the Board discussed the challenges encountered when trying to endorse a licensee from another state (if the license was granted prior to part IV of the National Board Exam) and how the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards may help facilitate this process. Spinal rehabilitation was also discussed.

It was the opinion of the Board that spinal rehabilitation was within the scope of chiropractic in New York State and a majority of the board members felt that it could be used as a "stand alone" encounter with a patient. Meaning, that a spinal adjustment would not necessarily have to be performed on that visit.

As Always, If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the New York State Board for Chiropractic at:
