Colorado Enacting Its Own Version of Professional Birth Control

All Methods Must Be Approved by a CCE Accredited School

The efforts to marginalize and severely restrict if not outlaw the management of subluxation in a vitalistic model are happening so rapidly and in so many places at once it is hard to keep track. Chiropractors in the United States have watched in shock as the wave of attacks have spread from the United Kingdom, to Australia, Canada and of course the United States.

Now the Chiropractic Cartel and its band of subluxation deniers have set their sites on Colorado with the infamous RULE 15.

The Rule has to do with so called UNPROVEN tests or procedures. It lays out what is considered unproven and how you must get informed consent from doing tests or procedures the BOARD deems to be unproven.

Now before you go further I want you to think about all the things you do in your practice to determine if a patient is subluxated or not. Then understand this rule in that context and in the context of the larger picture of what is happening to the practice of managing vertebral subluxation around the world.

And understand that all of it is being driven by the same people.

Making matters worse for Colorado chiropractors is that they are unlucky enough to have one of the most outspoken and venomous anti subluxation zealots in the profession: Michael Simone DC sitting on the Colorado Baord in judgment of other chiropractors. Simone is past Chairman of the Board of the American Chiropractic Association and card carrying member of the West Hartford Group – a rabid anti subluxation special interest group. Readers may recall that Simone has stated publicly that chiropractors who practice in a vitalistic subluxation model should be ELIMINATED and that chiropractors should prescribe drugs.

He now sits on the Colorado Board. Is it any wonder that this issue has raised its ugly head?

The language of RULE 15 requires all tests and procedures to be taught in chiropractic schools accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE).

  • Whether the test or procedure is taught as part of the regular curriculum of at least one college of chiropractic approved by the Council on Chiropractic Education.

It gets worse. Read the language very carefully.

  • Any practice system, analysis, method, or protocol which that does not include the complete assessment, evaluation, or diagnosis of the condition to be treated before beginning treatment of the patient.
  • Any practice system, analysis, method or protocol, which that relies upon diagnostic methods that are not generally recognized or accepted within the profession or which that does not have scientific validity.
  • Any practice system, analysis, method, or protocol, which that is represented as a means of attaining spiritual growth, comfort, or well-being.

The Board of Chiropractic Examiners will hold a stakeholder meeting to collect input on proposed changes to Board Rule 15 on November 14, 2018.

This rule, intended to harm chiropractors and using restraint of trade to do it, should be struck down and every effort on the part of chiropractors to do so should be utilized. Further, Michael Simone should be forced to recuse himself from any involvement in this Rule due to his blatant and publicly stated animosity towards the very chiropractors this is intended to harm.
