The Texas Medical Association (TMA) is continuing its over-a-century-long quest to eliminate the chiropractic profession.  For a decade now they have been challenging the chiropractic doctor’s right to diagnose – all the way to the Texas Supreme Court.  

The TCA and its legal team continue to intervene on behalf of the chiropractic profession.  The latest TMA lawsuit was heard August 2 in Austin.  While the chiropractic team has done well explaining the job of the chiropractor in the area of diagnosis, the TMA’s experts have admitted their lack of expertise on the chiropractic profession that they deem themselves qualified to regulate.

We thought we would present a brief synopsis of this 120+ year old battle in Texas.

National Chiropractic Health Month 2016

NCHM 2016 will highlight chiropractic as a first line of defense against musculoskeletal pain.  During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) 2016 this October, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) will build on its ongoing efforts to raise public awareness of the value of a conservative approach to pain management in the face of the U.S. opioid epidemic with the theme and hashtag #Chiropractic1st

With government agencies, respected health organizations and the media beginning to recognize and promote the use of nonpharmacologic options for chronic pain, it’s important for healthcare consumers to understand that chiropractic services are an important first line of defense against pain and may in some cases lessen or eliminate the need for over-the-counter and prescription painkillers.

National Chiropractic Health Month is a nationwide observance held annually in October. The event helps to raise public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness. NCHM strives to educate consumers about the benefits of chiropractic services and to promote the expertise of doctors of chiropractic (DCs) in helping patients reach optimal levels of health and wellness.
