In March of 2018 the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE)  published proposed rules changes as reported here.  On June 19, 2018, those reported changes were adopted by the TBCE.  

Rules effected are rule 78.3 Rules of Practice;  rule 78.5 Duty to Respond to Complaint and Request for Information or Records; rule 78.7 Public Interest Information; and rule 78.8 Complaint Procedures.

The currently adopted rules may be found at the above links. These rules were deemed necessary to reflect implementation of 2017 Sunset Commission legislation, SB 304, which dissolved the Board’s statutory requirement to regulate and/or register chiropractic facilities, effective September 1, 2017. The purpose of the amendments is to remove the reference of regulation of facilities and facility owners stated in the rule.

Prepare for Hurricane Season

The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) works to enhance public access and education to chiropractic practice. In the wake of last year’s Hurricane Harvey the TCA, in conjunction with Parker University and Texas Chiropractic College (TCC), created the initiative Chiropractors Helping In Relief Operations (C.H.I.R.O), dedicated to helping chiropractic doctors in their time of need. The ultimate goal of C.H.I.R.O. is to help doctors effected by a disaster to get back to caring for patients.

Initially started as a response to Harvey as a way to offer assistance to Texas Doctors of Chiropractic whose practices were affected by Hurricane Harvey, the C.H.I.R.O. continues as a way to support those who may be affected by catastrophic events in the future. The 2018 hurricane season began June 1 and the TCA takes this opportunity to attention to hurricane preparedness.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted a “near to above normal” level of hurricane frequency. The most important thing you can do as hurricane season approaches is to have a plan, and to get yourself, your family and your home prepared.
