Defending The Rights of Practicing Chiropractors Around The World
Your Business, Patients and Future Generations Of Chiropractors Will Thank You For Joining The Fight When It Matters Most
Chiropractic has always been an easy target. Since our inception, adversaries have sought to undermine our validity as a profession and thwart the growth and proliferation of the profession. We have met resistance from the medical profession and insurance industry, as well as by state and national health boards. Sometimes, the adversity comes from within the profession itself. Attacks come at all levels – high courts, national organizations, state associations, and boards – but nearly all are directed at the practicing chiropractor.
Historically, there are many famous examples of this: Dr. Herbert Ross Reaver (“The Most Jailed Chiropractor”), the Wilks Case, and countless others. More recent examples of these attacks against the rights of chiropractors to practice within the scope of their license include: the right to adjust children in Australia, the right to use x-ray in Ireland and Canada, and the right for DC’s to enter the military and serve as officers.
Although there are several organizations that have done good work in these cases, there has never been a dedicated organization whose singular focus is to defend the rights of chiropractors to practice within the scope of their license – until now.
The Chiropractic Defense Council exists with the singular purpose of defending the rights of the practicing chiropractors around the world. The CDC will function as a 501(c6) non-profit that consists of a specialized team of legal experts and attorneys, supported by a team of industry experts in chiropractic research/literature, regulation and scope, as well as representative spokespeople and a contracted PR firm. The council will be on paid retainer and paid for their services when deployed. The council will be advisory board-run and supported by a panel of area-experts who will screen and select cases for the council to defend.
The criteria for eligible cases will be limited to those cases where a DC’s right to practice within the stated scope of their license is infringed upon or at risk. These criteria will be published and used to guide the panel in the selection of qualified scenarios. The council members will have the final decision as to which cases are deemed qualified and defendable.
There are clear and present dangers on the immediate horizon that could fundamentally alter our ability to practice as chiropractors in a post-COVID world. Regulations and mandates that loom over our rights to practice – and live – in alignment with our principles are a very real and significant threat.
The Chiropractic Defense Council will have a singular focus: Protecting The Rights Of Practicing Chiropractors Around The World.
We thank you in advance for your support of this important initiative. Your practice, your patients, your business, and future generations of chiropractors will thank you for stepping up when it matters most.
We understand there are so many potential battles to be fought; from state to federal over reach, healthcare freedom violations, scope infringements and insurance reimbursement challenges. Clearly we will not be able to take on every issue that is presented to us so we have a process that all requests will go through. Our selection committee consists of 5 highly experienced chiropractors that will review each battle and decide if it is within our scope and advance it to the defense council.
All issues presented to the CDC will be thoroughly evaluated to see if the issue is within the our scope and our ability to succeed.
The selection committee is made up of 5 highly experienced chiropractors with the understanding of legal and political issues.
If chosen by the selection committee we will deploy the defense council to begin researching and collaborating with anyone involved with the fight.
Knowing many non-profit organizations have a hard time with transparency and resource management, we ensure that the CDC is run appropriately. We have a 7 person advisory board to oversee that revenue is appropriately distributed. These seven individuals combined bring over 400 years of chiropractic knowledge and expertise.
The CDC is driven by the mission to protect and defend chiropractors and their way of life. Our advisory board is dedicated to this mission with this as our single focus.
Our advisory board is made up of successful and experienced individuals, with proven track records of achieving the goals they set, building businesses and movements in the profession. With cultural and geographical diversity, we are able to understand and execute on a higher level.
The structure we created will always function with a priority of accountability and transparency to each other and our contributors. You will never have to worry about where our resources go, we will tell you!
The CDC will function as a 501(c6) / 501(c3) non-profit that consists of a specialized team of legal experts and attorneys, supported by a team of industry experts in chiropractic research / literature, regulation and scope, as well as representative spokespeople and a contracted PR firm. This is unlike anything that has ever been constructed in chiropractic. We will have an elite strike force that will be deployed to ensure your way of life is protected and supported.
We have assembled an elite strike force made up of the leaders of our profession, seasoned litigators, connected lobbyists, effective PR firms and content experts ready to be dropped into the middle of any fight to protect your rights.
