Who IS the state chiropractic association?

  • EVERY DC should be a state chiropractic association member. It is where the laws that license your profession are created and administered.  EVERY DC should have a hand in making sure that those laws are suitable for the profession.
  • EVERY staff member should be a state chiropractic association member.  Your livelihood also depends upon the beneficial outcomes of the state chiropractic association.
  • EVERY family member should support the state chiropractic association.  Be it through membership, financial or volunteer support every family member associated with a DC is dependent upon the successful outcome of the professional association's work. 
  • State chiropractic association members are professional doctors who are aware that in order to have a profession the members of the profession must band together to volunteer to do the necessary, must contribute together to pay for the work that is necessary, and must work together to protect the profession in the state in which they are licensed.  

With a state chiropractic association there is a profession seeking to influence the will of the state.  Without a state chiropractic association there are only licensed individuals practicing a trade subject to the will of the state.

Talk About What You Love (Positive Self-Talk)

By: Dr Charles Ward

When you talk about difficulties with money, a relationship, illness, or even lack of new patients, or patients not following through with care, you are not talking about love.  When you talk about a bad event in news, or a person or situation that annoyed or frustrated you, you are not talking about love.  Talking about the bad day you had, you are not talking about love.   

There are many things that happen each day; if you get caught up in talking about the things you don’t love, every one of those little things bring difficulty and struggle to your life.

When does the state chiropractic association conduct its work?

  • The state chiropractic association works, in some capacity, at all times.  There is usually some volunteer, staff member, contractor, or executive or administrative officer working on behalf of the association at all times of the day.  There are communications, publications, and more that are quietly working when people are not.
  • Volunteer association leadership is always evaluating and seeking solutions to the problems facing the profession.
  • Association staff works full time to carry out the policy of the board of directors – the regionally elected leadership and the “at large” executive leadership elected by the members.
  • Associational regional districts operate to provide opportunities for DCs voice their concerns, problems, desires and objectives.
  • Associational statewide meetings several times per year share information and provide educational opportunities.
  • Your state chiropractic association is always working on your behalf.  Make sure that you are supporting your association on behalf of yourself, your family, your staff, and your patients.  
Forces of Commonly Used Chiropractic Techniques for Children

More than 30 million child visits to doctors of chiropractic occur in the United States every year.  The published cases of serious adverse events in infants and children receiving chiropractic or other types of manual therapy are exceedingly rare.  This begs the question, is chiropractic pediatric care safe?

The purpose of this study is to review the available literature that describes forces of the most commonly used chiropractic techniques for children.  The initial search captured 1796 potential articles, of which 54 full-text articles were reviewed. There have been no cases of death associated with chiropractic care of children reported in the academic literature to date.  Nonetheless, studies of the amount of force used on children for safety purposes should still be considered.  

Chiropractic students undertake extensive theoretical and practical training at the university level, including study of and experience with the pediatric population. Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) are trained to perform a thorough history and examination to determine whether chiropractic care is appropriate and identify a suitable technique, given the age and neurologic presentation of the child.  It should be noted that health professionals of all types face the same considerations when determining appropriate treatment approaches.
