Chiropractic is attractive because it’s delivered by licensed professionals.
Revere him or revile him, chiropractic licensure was one of the most significant achievements of B. J. Palmer. Not only did this protect chiropractors from being arrested for practicing medicine without a license, it codified chiropractic as a separate, distinct and nonduplicative healing art.
Governmental regulations brought legitimacy to chiropractic that decades of results were unable to produce. That patients are seemingly more concerned about their insurance coverage than whether your CE hours are up to date is further proof that the transition from ridicule and violent opposition to being self-evident has occurred.
Never forget that practicing chiropractic is a privilege that can be modified, constrained and even eliminated. Which is one reason why if you aren’t a member of your state association you should be and if you haven’t donated to its political action committee you should do so.
