Cover your bases

The TBCE recently issued another statement regarding how we, as practicing DCs in Texas, are to practice. Here is the exact release:

Licensees should only provide essential chiropractic services for patients with current or recurrent complaints of pain or disability which adversely affects the patient’s ability to engage in the essential activities of daily living or work, or adversely affects the patient’s quality of life, and with anticipation of material improvement under chiropractic care.

Licensees should only resume chiropractic services for wellness care patients when shelter-in-place restrictions have been lifted by federal, state, and local authorities.

The primary takeaway we should have as Chiropractors is this:

  • Only deliver care that is designed to make a measurable difference.
  • Deliver that care only if it is significant to that patient’s quality of life.
  • Document this well.
