A Pivotal Time for Chiropractic in Texas

Now is a pivotal time for the chiropractic in profession in Texas! February 28 is the date for the hearing for the Texas Medical Association (TMA) vs. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) and Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) appeal. The Third District of Texas will hear oral arguments in the case, with representatives from TBCE and TCA representing the chiropractic side.

By now, every TCA member should know what’s at stake – your ability to diagnose and treat nerves and the subluxation complex. TMA, in its ongoing attack on chiropractic, is trying to strike TBCE Board rules that allow you to treat conditions as simple as sciatica.

Don’t take my word for it! Find out what this case really means and how it could impact the future of chiropractic in the Lone Star State.

The appeal in the Texas Medical Association (TMA) vs. Texas Board of Chiropractors (TBCE) lawsuit is continuing to move forward.  The Court of Appeals for the Third District of Texas in Austin has notified the parties involved in this case that submission and oral arguments will be held Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 1:30 PM before Justices Puryear, Pemberton, and Bourland.

I'm Too BUSY!

We measure our own importance — and the importance of those around us — by how much we can pack into our days. We attempt to outdo, outhustle, and outperform one another. We are in the midst of a busyness epidemic. There is just “to much to do!”

How can we create more time in our lives? The answer is that we already do have more time in our lives than ever before. On the whole, people in developed countries are actually working far fewer hours than in past decades. This even holds true in the famously work-inclined US; in 1940 the average American work week clocked in at 43.3 hours. In 2016 it was just 34.4 hours. Yet we feel busier than ever.
