Scope of Practice

The WSMA is opposed to the definition (or "like" definitions) of "chiropractic practice" as a practice providing point of entry into the health system for the treatment and referral of patients. The WSMA is opposed to all expansion of chiropractic scope, including non-spinal procedures and particularly manipulation of extremities complementary to or preparatory to a chiropractic spinal adjustment. (EC 2/90; Res 17, A-89; Res 43, B-88) (Reaffirmed A-17)
