If You Can’t Beat ‘Em…
…Take ‘Em Over.
The Latest Threat in the War on Chiropractic
If you can’t beat ‘em, take ‘em over.
That’s the next strategy that’s going to be used in the war on chiropractic – and it’s going to take all of us to stop it.
You may think it doesn’t affect you because you’re a subluxation-focused, cash only, family chiropractor.
But you would be wrong.
The apathy of the average chiropractor may be the death of our profession.
How, you ask?
Ask yourself how many patients you think you’d have if only an MD could prescribe chiropractic – and you’ll start arriving at the answer.
The current battle – and biggest threat to chiropractic – started in 2006 when Texas chiropractors tried to include needle EMG in their scope of practice and, in the view of the Texas Medical Association (TMA), infringing on the scope of medical practice.
The TMA then pushed back and, in the process proposed an act that even more narrowly defined the scope of practice, potentially removing the ability of chiropractors to “diagnose” at all – even within determining the need for care within their own specialty – and, ultimately, bringing chiropractic licensure and practice under control of the Texas medical licensing board.
These are the kinds of encroachments and assaults – this one being among the worst – that could rise again and destroy chiropractic. Except this time, we have too much market share for them to shut chiropractic down. This time, political medicine has begun laying to groundwork to subsume it.
Listen to Dr. Gerry Clum explain how this happened, how it could spread and what YOU need to do to contain this encroachment on chiropractic autonomy.
