Listen in as Dr. Stephen Franson interviews Bharon Hoag – Director of the new Chiropractic Defense Council. 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; and 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.

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.

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 or the right to use X-ray in Ireland and Canada.

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 practicing chiropractors around the world. The CDC will function as a 501(c6)/501(c3) non-profit that consists of a specialized, paid team of legal experts and attorneys, supported by a team of industry experts in chiropractic research/literature, regulatory and scope, as well as representative spokespeople and a contracted PR firm.

The Chiropractic Defense Council will have a singular focus:

Protect the Rights of Practicing Chiropractors
