Cases We Had to Deny

Even with your generous support, the need still grows to defend the profession you have dedicated your life to. Every case won, is a win for you. Every case we cannot pursue marks another victory for those that wish to strip the profession of its reach, impact and longevity…

Whether you choose to believe it or not.
Chiropractic is under siege.


The fractured profession struggles to find common ground on philosophical differences, all while government and regulatory agencies continue to strip away your rights to practice the profession you have dedicated your life to.  

There are clear and present dangers on the immediate horizon that could alter our ability to practice as “Natural Healers”, especially in a post-Covid world. Regulations and mandates loom over our rights to practice and live in alignment with our principles.

In 2020, everything we knew was thrown out the window. As global markets shut down, due to the looming pandemic, governments forced businesses to shut their doors, barring chiropractors from seeing patients, or forcing mandates in order to practice.

As we begin to come back out of the pandemic, there is a growing, false sense of security. The precedent has been set and who is going to have your back when THEIR decisions impact your livelihood? 

In A Post-Covid World We Are Facing Threats We’ve Never Faced Before. Chiropractors are asking these questions worldwide;

"How will the recent vaccine mandates effect my practice? Will they try to shut me down?"
"What if the government tries to restrict my scope of practice or my ability to take X-rays?"
"Will they try to stop us from treating children? How far will the government over-reach?"

The need to protect the rights of practicing chiropractors across the globe continues to grow. No matter your views on your personal chiropractic philosophies, religious affiliations, political affiliations, or income, you should be guaranteed certain inalienable rights.

If the global pandemic has taught us anything, it is that the right of individuals and practitioners can change instantly. How you practice, where you practice, and how you may be compensated are now the jurisdiction of local and national governments and organizations.

In 2021, the Chiropractic Defense Counsel (CDC) was formed to support the profession. For many in the profession, state boards, associations, and even insurers are not interested in the individual rights of chiropractors in practice or may even work against them through heavy-handed regulations and oversight.

The mission of the CDC is to reengage a profession that is vastly uninspired and uninvolved at local and national levels in markets across the globe.

It is time to make chiropractic the #1 choice in healthcare.
