From Dec. 12-Dec. 15, 2008, over 100 chiropractors came from several countries to meet, discuss, and learn marketing, philosophy, and communication skills that will send them back to their communities with powerful new ways to communicate vertebral subluxation centered chiropractic with their practice members. It was also the first graduation of a group of twenty-one chiropractors who, for two years, have studied rigorous and principled courses in chiropractic art, science, and philosophy.

Scope of practice dispute can proceed,
Texas court rules
A Texas appeals court gave the green light to state
physicians’ challenge to stop chiropractors from performing certain medical procedures.
Judges, in a Nov. 26, 2008, decision ruled unanimously that the Texas Medical Assn. had the right to sue the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners over a board rule allowing chiropractors to perform spinal manipulation on patients under anesthesia. Physicians allege the regulation intrudes on the practice of medicine and violates a 2005 state law prohibiting any "surgical procedures" from the scope of chiropractic practice. The TMA filed the lawsuit jointly with the Texas Medical Board.
The chiropractic board said it is considering whether to appeal to the state Supreme Court. If not, the case will head to trial. The agency maintains it has complied with the legislative instructions and plans to defend the rule.
