Chiropractic Disclaimer

To ensure no potential member of our practice enters under any false pretenses, we offer the following disclaimer in accordance with Indiana state regulations.

Summary of Regulation:

Under current Indiana Law IC 25-10-1-1 letter G, chiropractors are not permitted to treat or attempt to treat infectious diseases, endocrine disorders, or atypical or abnormal histology.  In no such way are we implying we treat these disorders rather that the body has the ability to heal itself when nervous system interference is removed.  It has been well documented that an optimally functioning spine and nervous system are capable of producing excellent results in the categories listed.

Full Indiana Regulation:

IC 25-10-1-1 Definitions
Sec. 1. As used in this article:
(1) “Chiropractic” means the diagnosis and analysis of any interference with normal nerve transmission and expression, the procedure preparatory to and complementary to the correction thereof by an adjustment of the articulations of the vertebral column, its immediate articulation, and includes other incidental means of adjustments of the spinal column and the practice of drugless therapeutics. However, chiropractic does not
include any of the following:
(A) Prescription or administration of legend drugs or other controlled substances.
(B) Performing of incisive surgery or internal or external cauterization.
(C) Penetration of the skin with a needle or other instrument for any purpose except for the purpose of blood analysis.
