JUDGE SAYS NO TO CHIROPRACTIC BOARD, AGAIN
An Austin state district judge ruled in TMA’s favor and granted our motion to stop chiropractors from performing vestibular testing. Judge Rhonda Hurley’s ruling invalidates the Texas State Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ (TBCE’s) vestibular testing rule, declaring it to be beyond chiropractors’ lawful scope of chiropractic. This is the fourth part of TBCE’s scope of practice rule that a court has overturned because it exceeded the scope of chiropractic as defined by law. The first three parts of the rule unlawfully authorized chiropractors to perform manipulation under anesthesia and needle electromyography, and to diagnose diseases.
