Minnesota Governor Signs Recodification Confirming Chiropractic Scope of Practice, says MCA, was the headline in a press release on the Digital Journal dated May 28, 2014.

While this might not seem as big news in chiropractic- it is! Any time a state validates chiropractic scope of practice is a win for the profession. Minnesota's governor Mark Dayton recently signed the recodification confirming Minnesota's Chiropractic Scope of Practice.

The scope of practice was first enacted in 1919 and has undergone changes in 1927 and 1975 to keep up with the advances in knowledge, technology and education as well as practice changes. These changes have the effect of adding clarity to the current law allowing fairness in enforcement and allows the public and doctors of chiropractic to better understand the professional requirements of a practicing chiropractor.

The signing of the recodification did not come easily. It met with strong opposition and due to the hard work of the Minnesota Chiropractic Association the governor signed it. Dr. Kollar, president of the MCA, went on to reassure residents of Minnesota that the governor's decision will only enhance the quality of care in the state. "Residents of Minnesota can be assured that Minnesota chiropractors are providing quality health care and are doing so with patient safety in mind," he said. "Doctors of chiropractic have had rigorous training and clinical experience to perform the procedures for which they are licensed and take great care to only perform those procedures that are within their scope of practice and expertise."
