Current Bill Summary

SB 973 - This act amends the definition of the practice of chiropractic. Currently chiropractors may use methods commonly taught in any chiropractic colleges recognized and approved by the board. This act allows chiropractors to use methods commonly taught in any chiropractic college or chiropractic program in a university that is accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education or its successor entity.

Current law requires adjustment, manipulation, or treatment to be directed toward restoring and maintaining the normal neuromuscular and musculoskeletal function and health. This act removes that requirement.
