Summer is almost over and it’s back to school for students. That also applies to doctors of chiropractic in search of coveted continuing education hours to maintain their Texas license or simply wanting to enhance their knowledge. 

Next month, TCA is putting on two events you don’t want to miss!

Foot Levelers Extremities Seminar

TCA Gold Sponsor Foot Levelers, in partnership with TCA, is hosting a fundraiser for TCA’s Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI). The Foot Levelers Extremities Seminar Benefitting the Fight for Chiropractic in Texas will take place September 16-17 at the Wyndham Riverwalk San Antonio. Foot Levelers is bringing in two of the country’s premier extremity experts – Dr. Mark Charrette (Lower Extremity Technique) and Dr. Kevin Wong (Adjusting Extremities and the Spine the “Wong Way”). It will be hands-on training.

There seems to be an extremity seminar on the calendar every weekend in Texas. Why make the trip to San Antonio for Foot Levelers’ event? It’s simple; every dollar raised will go to TCA’s legal fund. TCA’s legal team recently filed our brief with the Third Court of Appeals in the Texas Medical Association (TMA) vs. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) lawsuit. TCA is appealing a Travis County District Court decision in which chiropractic was the big loser.  What’s at stake? Only your right to treat nerves and the subluxation complex. Proceeds from next month’s seminar will pay the legal fees for the appeal.

Visit www.chirotexas.org/FootLevelers for more information on the Foot Levelers seminar or register online today.

Texas Sports Chiropractic Conference

TCA is thrilled to roll out a new event in conjunction with Southeast Sports Seminars. With the growing interest in sports, TCA is hosting the inaugural Texas Sports Chiropractic Conference on September 29-October 1 at Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena. There’s no other conference devoted exclusively to sports chiropractic in Texas!

Dr. Tom Hyde, considered the “godfather” of sports chiropractic, headlines an all-star line-up of nationally recognized speakers. He’ll be joined by experts like Drs. Rhiannon Dickison, Jacob Harden, Jennifer Illes, Ron Grabowski, Ti Pence, Todd Riddle and Robert Silverman covering topics ranging from biomechanical taping, concussion and nutrition for optimal sports performance to the treatment of female athletes, building your practice through social media and how to build a sports chiropractic practice. We also will offer the ASHI Basic Life Support class (CPR) and training for your chiropractic assistant and staff.

Sports is a big deal in Texas. Make your plans to be at TCC for the Texas Sports Chiropractic Conference to listen to incredible speakers and meet with dozens of vendors.

Why Attend TCA Conferences?

Once again, you have lots of choices. Why choose TCA conferences?

  1. Your registration fees give TCA the resources to fight for chiropractic in the Lone Star State. 
  2. TCA is trying to build a tighter chiropractic community in Texas. The more often we get together, the stronger we become. That was one of the keys to success in the 85th Texas Legislative Session, which resulted in four chiropractic bills being signed into law. 
  3. We have fun! Anyone who attended Chiro Texpo ’17 this summer in Dallas can attest to that.

As a TCA member, you’ll save money every time you attend on our events and even more if you are a TCA Elite or Premium Member. Got a question? Call the TCA office at (512) 477-9292. 

We hope to see you in San Antonio and Pasadena next month!
