NYSBC opinion regarding Animal Adjusting

Section 6551 of Education Law defines the practice of chiropractic as:

"detecting and correcting by manual or mechanical means structural imbalance, distortion, or subluxations in the human body for the purpose of removing nerve interference and the effects thereof, where such interference is the result of or related to distortion, misalignment or subluxation of or in the vertebral column." [emphasis added]

Consequently, it is beyond the lawful scope of chiropractic in this State to adjust or provide any professional service to an animal.
