What are some of the current threats to practising as a licensed Chiropractor? In this special feature episode, Dr. Melissa Longo sits down with Bharon Hoag, Executive Director of One Chiropractic, to hear about the work he is doing with the Chiropractic Defense Council. In our conversation we discuss the types of cases they are representing, from advertising issues and regulatory body misconducts, to health care mandates and items that infringe on the scope of practice Chiropractors currently hold. Bharon shares the success of their work, why it is increasingly important, and why he has made it his mission to defend the rights to practice regardless of the style of practice, or individual differences between practitioners.
