Bill Would Allow Chiropractors to Clear Kansas Athletes with Concussions
Thursday, February 12, 2015 03:53 PM

Testimony in Topeka, Kansas, on a bill that would expand who could clear middle school and high school athletes to return to sports after a head injury revealed a turf battle between medical doctors and chiropractors.  Currently, the state’s school sports statutes only allow medical doctors and doctors of osteopathic medicine to sign a written clearance following a concussion. The proposed bill, HB 2016, was discussed in the House Health and Human Services Committee. It would change the definition of health care provider within the school sports act from a M.D. or D.O. to a “licensee of the healing arts,” as defined by a separate state statute that includes chiropractors.

The director of government affairs for the Kansas Medical Society, said there is a distinction between chiropractic training and medical training. The medical society represents medical doctors from across the state. The medical society urged that the treatment of concussions should stay within the traditional medical community, claiming that physicians look at the patient holistically, considering what diseases they have, what medications they are on that could be affected by the head injury and what medications could help relieve symptoms. When asked whether chiropractors and medical doctors could work together to treat concussions and clear athletes for play, the medical society spokesman noted that referrals happen often in medicine, but said care of head injury patients needs to be kept in a “physician-led group.”

ACA Comments NIH on Report on Opioids
Thursday, February 12, 2015 03:35 PM

American Chiropractic Association (ACA) President Anthony Hamm, DC, issued the following comment today on a new report released by an independent National Institutes of Health (NIH) panel about the need for individualized, patient-centered care to treat and monitor the estimated 100 million Americans living with chronic pain.

"ACA commends NIH for recognizing the value of an individual, patient-centered and multi-faceted approach to managing chronic pain. It is also interesting to read the conclusion from the panel that widespread opioid use does not provide an effective single approach for the chronic pain patient. Services provided by chiropractic physicians, including those being delivered in integrated community health centers, have proven effective with respect to patient satisfaction. ACA encourages NIH to study all complementary and integrated approaches to chronic pain management, including chiropractic. These integrated approaches can offer a higher degree of patient safety and reduce the use of medications."

Thursday, February 12, 2015 03:23 PM

The first chiropractor elected to the Michigan Legislature,Third-term state Representative Dr. Michael Callton, has been appointed by Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter to chair the House Health Policy Committee. Health Policy is critical to the future of chiropractic in Michigan.

When legislation or resolutions affecting health care are introduced in the Michigan House, they are usually referred to the Health Policy Committee for consideration. Committee members then make recommendations regarding the item before it goes to the full chamber for a “yea” or “nay” vote.  As Chair of Health Policy, Dr. Callton will have a major say in deciding which bills are taken up by the Committee.
