If you are going to treat symptoms this is the British Chiropractic Associations advice on complying with ASA code. If you correct vertebral subluxations its irrelevant.

THis is the advice the BCA is giving its members this month regarding advertising and The ASA from March the ASA CAP codes will be extended to cover on line marketing. This will come as a surprise to 700 BCA members who are being charged by the GCC with Unprofessional Conduct for infringing the...

De ja vue, every 20 years chiropractors do this to themselves.

Its a bit premature for Zeno and GCC to write obituary of “Vertebral Subluxation”

By Richard Lanigan DC THE BCAs “PROFESSIONAL STATEMENT” FURTHER DIVIDES THE PROFESSION These should be great times for the chiropractic profession, but we continue to waste energy and resources fighting among ourselves.
