TMA: Chiro Board Oversteps Authority, Again


TMA told the Third District Court of Appeals that the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners went too far, once again, in allowing chiropractors to perform acupuncture. TMA filed an amicus curiae brief asking the court to reverse a lower court’s judgment in Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine v. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners and Yvette Yarbrough. Our brief points out that the Chiropractic Act doesn’t authorize any procedures on the nervous system nor does it authorize chiropractors to perform acupuncture. The hearing in the case was Dec. 2. A decision is expected next year.
