SUPREME COURT LETS SCOPE RULING STAND

The Texas Supreme Court decided not to review our case against the Texas State Board of Chiropractic Examiners, in which we argued that chiropractors are not allowed to diagnose. The ruling leaves standing TMA’s successful challenge to the board’s manipulation-under-anesthesia and needle electromyography regulations. It also has the effect of allowing chiropractors to make a chiropractic diagnosis limited to their scope of practice, as statutorily defined. We are considering whether to continue with our constitutional challenge when it is remanded back to the trial court.
