The Chiropractic Scope of Practice in the United States

News Bite: Chiropractic, the largest and most recognized of the complementary and alternative professions, is licensed in all 50 states.  Scope of practice regulations are used to legally create boundaries restricting the allowed services of a profession.  This study researched all 50 states and found a high degree of variability  in the scope of chiropractic practice.  

The United States does not have a unified scope of practice for most health care professionals. The only health care professionals that have a unified scope of practice across state lines are medical doctors and doctors of osteopathy. The medical profession was the first to have licensure standards and because they were the first to become licensed, their scope of practice is uniform and broad. As each health care profession sought licensure, the American Medical Association aggressively defended their practice rights and ensured that limitations were put on other professions.

News Bite:  The public needs to be reminded that there are drug-free approaches such as chiropractic that, if tried first, may reduce or eliminate the need for pain medications.  

Chiropractic is an important first line of defense against musculoskeletal pain. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, chiropractors care for patients with health problems of the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Up to 87% of all insured are covered for chiropractic care, and Section 2706 of the Affordable Care Act ensures that DCs are covered providers for allowable services within their scope of practice.

I have been coaching Chiropractors for over 30 years. In those years I find many doctors who strive for success, they can’t wait to fill their offices daily, their vision is to serve the multitudes.  These clients always go the extra mile, they do what I ask them as their coach, they attend sessions with their teams, read the playbook daily, study chiropractic and its philosophy.  They have positive morning and evening rituals.  They have goals and read them daily and they work on their positive self-talk at all times

I have also coached chiropractors that seem to fear success.  They are afraid of the responsibilities that come with success and growth.    There are many Chiropractors that don’t work up to their full potential because of these fears.  They are in a rut and feel comfortable there.

It is generally acknowledged that back pain (BP) is a common condition in childhood. However, the development until early adulthood is not well understood and, in particular, not the individual tracking pattern. The objectives of this paper are to show the prevalence estimates of BP, low back pain (LBP), mid back pain (MBP), neck pain (NP), and care-seeking because of BP at three different ages (9, 13 and 15 years) and how the BP reporting tracks over these age groups over three consecutive surveys.
