A District Court in Travis County, Texas, sided with chiropractic in the case Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (TAAOM) v. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE). In her decision, Judge Jan Soifer ruled in favor of TBCE, the defendant, and the Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA), an intervenor in the case, affirming TBCE’s rules regarding chiropractic acupuncture. But the judge’s ruling upheld the right to perform chiropractic acupuncture, a victory for the hundreds of Texas chiropractors with an acupuncture permit. “TCA is THE voice of Texas chiropractors, and our charge is to protect, preserve and promote chiropractic in Texas,” Bailey said. “I am extremely proud of the efforts of our team and our partners in the Texas chiropractic community.
