President’s Message

It’s a busy news cycle for the chiropractic profession in Texas. It feels like non-stop action  and the Texas Chiropractic Association is almost as busy as it was during the 85th Texas Legislative Session.

The appeal of the Texas Medical Association (TMA) vs. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) lawsuit reached a new phase. Last weekend, TCA received TMA’s brief – all 100+ pages – and, not surprisingly, there were plenty of red flags. It’s clear that TMA firmly believes that doctors of chiropractic (DCs) have no business dabbling in neurology of any kind. Your right to treat nerves and the subluxation complex are in jeopardy and TCA doesn’t take this lightly. We’ll work closely with our legal counsel before filing our response later this month.   

While TCA prepares our appeal, the legal bills are mounting and we could use your assistance. Join us for the Foot Levelers Extremities Seminar Benefiting the Fight for Chiropractic in Texas this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17, at the Wyndham Riverwalk San Antonio. Aside from hearing outstanding speakers, all proceeds benefit the Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI). Not registered yet? You can sign up for the seminar on-site. Can’t make the seminar? You can still make a CDI donation online, either a one-time contribution or get on monthly autodraft. Remember, your CDI donation is tax-deductible.  This tax deductible contribution literally puts money back in your pocket as we DEFEND our profession from the numerous attacks.

Chiropractic in Texas: New Threats and What TCA Is Doing to Protect the Profession

It’s been a few months since the conclusion of the 85th Texas Legislative Session. With your help, the Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) successfully advocated for the signing into law of four pro-chiropractic bills – most notably SB 304, which affirms your right to diagnose. But the work is far from over, with new and serious threats to the future of the chiropractic profession in the Lone Star State.

Join TCA President Dr. Max Vige, TCA Vice President Dr. Devin Pettiet and the TCA Legislative Team, for a closer look at what’s happening on Tuesday, September 19 at 7:30 p.m. Click here for more information and to register.

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced that they are moving in a whole new direction.  "We took a hard look at the often unhealthy ways we’ve related to each other and to the larger world of healthcare.
