Description:  BREAKING NEWSToday marks a Banner Day in ChiropracTIC and a major score for the Movement for Chiropractic Quality and Integrity!  Today the Council of Chiropractic Education (CCE) faced the U.S. Department of Education’s National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) to answer to their history of unacceptable behavior of failing to represent the voice of the chiropractic profession.

Dr. Jay Komarek, one  of the many chiropracTORS that showed up in Washington DC to testify and show support, stated, “I literally watched a member of the CCE choke on his words as he was confronted with this behavior.”  Bottom line:  The Council was given 12 months to clear up 41 violations including failure to represent the profession.  

Today on Spinal Column Radio Dr. Steve Tullius, one of the main drivers in leading this movement that called the CCE to the mat, joins us via telephone from our nation’s capital to give us an insider’s view as to what went down today.

ChiropracTORS…. Today was just the start…. the Momentum is in our Favor… let’s Charge Forward and make the Necessary Change!

i am very appreciative to the folks who defended the profession in person. I know we all signed petitions and sent in email responses. Personally, I don’t have time time to abandon my family and fight for a profession when my school loan balance increases due to the loan shark tactics I’ve had to deal with along with the Medicare/Work Comp monopoly that makes the country think the value of chiropractic is $20-27 per visit. Guess what! If I go cash my folks go to the guy down the road. Can we all just dump insurance as a united group? We’ll have more time to teach the truth about health. We should be running from health care reform. And the colleges set the tone for the public. They need reform. The colleges are the nerve roots of our fantastic healing art.
