RESOLUTION #1-17

Submitted for Consideration by FCLB Board of Directors 

Chiropractic Licensing Boards’ Affirmation on Chiropractic Pediatric Practice

Whereas, the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Board (FCLB) is comprised of member chiropractic licensing boards throughout the United States and across the globe; and

Whereas, the primary responsibility of a chiropractic licensing board is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the consumers of chiropractic services; and

Whereas doctors of chiropractic are taught and trained to evaluate and examine patients of all ages for the purpose of determining the presence or absence of physical or physiologic illnesses, injuries, conditions or disorders of the body, including chiropractic subluxations and somatic dysfunctions; and

Whereas, doctors of chiropractic are taught and trained to care for patients of all ages with illnesses, injuries, conditions or disorders, including chiropractic subluxations and somatic dysfunctions, through the administration of a chiropractic adjustment to the body for the purpose of maintaining, restoring or improving biomechanical and/or physiological function; and

Whereas, a chiropractic adjustment often involves the application of manual and mechanical procedures, including when applicable, high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustments; and

Whereas, doctors of chiropractic are taught and trained to tailor the application of a high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustment to the patient’s condition or circumstance, including the maturity, size and structural integrity of the patient; and

Whereas, doctors of chiropractic routinely care for infants and children across the globe; and

Whereas, no FCLB member jurisdiction prohibits the practice of chiropractic on persons of a certain age, including infants and children; now therefore be it

Resolved, that the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) supports the safe and effective care of patients of all ages, including infants and children, by doctors of chiropractic.
