Resolution Supporting the Chiropractor's Right to Clinical Decision-Making Regarding Radiology

The New York Chiropractic Council is committed to ensuring your right to practice Chiropractic by allowing you, the Chiropractor, to work in your profession by detecting and correcting the vertebral subluxation complex in accordance with our philosophy.

Prior to January 24, 2018 the Council was not aware of any written precedent in NYS that makes the profession, the public-at-large, or policy makers in Albany, aware of the following regarding X-ray usage: it's safety and the efficacy of use in the evaluation, detection, and the monitoring of/for the vertebral subluxation complex.  

Therefore the New York Chiropractic Council passed a Resolution Supporting the Chiropractor's Right to Clinical Decision-Making Regarding Radiology in direct opposition to the position that x-rays should only be taken in the presence of red flags or lack of symptom change over an extended period of time.
