The Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) proposes the repeal of Chapter 78, §78.14, concerning Acupuncture. This rule will be replaced by a new acupuncture rule at the Board meeting on August 16, 2018. The proposed repeal and replacement is to promote a clear understanding of the use of acupuncture as a modality by chiropractors.

The Board’s Executive Director, Patrick Fortner, has determined that the expected public benefit of the proposed repeal will be clarity and guidance for the public and stakeholders regarding the use of acupuncture in the practice of chiropractic.

Replacement language has not yet been posted publicly.
