Chiropractors deemed essential services by U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Chiropractic Economics March 30, 2020
Christopher C. Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in a “Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response” named chiropractic care as an essential service.
Functioning critical infrastructure is imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health and safety as well as community well-being, the CISA says. The list of essential services is intended to “support state, local, tribal, territorial and industry partners in identifying the critical infrastructure sectors and the essential workers needed to maintain the services and functions Americans depend on daily and that need to be able to operate resiliently during the COVID-19 pandemic response.”

Why the NCC
Supports the Use of X-Rays
The NCC supports the right of chiropractic physicians to use their professional judgment and expertise to determine what is best for each patient and to practice any techniques, including the taking and reading of x-rays, which fall within the scope of practice in the state of Nevada.
Dr. Stephanie Youngblood, current NCC board president, says, "I support the use of x-rays by chiropractors for patient protection. I had a patient with cancer, and by x-ray, I learned that it had metastasized to her neck. An adjustment would have hurt her. The more information I have, the better I can care for my patients."
Dr. Bobby Moore, past NCC board president, says, "Techniques, such as CBP, require progress x-rays to verify whether the patient's treatment is working and/or if adjustments need to be made. Once we caught a patient's cancer that had returned by detecting, by x-ray, ivory white vertebrae sign. Another time a young girl had an incredibly severe scoliosis that was undetectable just by looking at her. These two patients had very mild to no pain, but both had emergency surgeries. Chiropractic physicians must not let insurance companies dictate chiropractors' methodology for treatment."
Depositions tips for Chiropractic Doctors
by Attorney Ayesha Mehdi
Personal injury cases are a part of nearly every chiropractic physician's practice. It is estimated that one-third of all motor vehicle crash victims are treated by chiropractors. Many of the collision injuries treated by chiropractors involve whiplash, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, strains, and sprains. As part of your practice, you are frequently called upon to provide testimony during depositions in personal injury cases. The credibility of a chiropractor depends on how long he or she has been treating the plaintiff since the incident and what he or she projects the plaintiff's needs will be in the future. Credibility also increases when a chiropractor aggressively treats a patient immediately after an accident, and then reduces treatment to a point where the patient is told to come in on an as-needed basis.
