British Columbia Bans X-Rays for Vertebral Subluxation Assessment

Most Other Uses Banned as Well - Use Allowed for "Serious Pathology" Only

In what at any other time or from any other place would be considered unbelievable, the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia (CCBC) has outright banned the use of radiographs for the evaluation and assessment of vertebral subluxation.

According to the ban the only application of x-rays is to identify "serious pathology".

While vertebral subluxation has been shown to have devastating consequences on human health and while radiography has now been shown in mnumerous studies as safe during routine use, the CCBC ignores that evidence. They ignore that evidence while at the same time cloaking their ban in the shawl of evidence based practice.

The CCBC has a long history of attacking the practice of managing vertebral subluxation including Webster's Technique, pregnancy, immunity, the care of children and many other standard practices within the profession.

And as has been thoroughly documented the members of the regulatory board itself routinely violate its own edicts.

The ban from the CCBC is consistent with the larger movement in the chiropractic profession headed by the Chiropractic Cartel which is controlled by the anti subluxation faction of the profession.

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) have led the way on banning x-rays within the chiropractic profession despite the profession's outright rejection of their stances.
