NYSCA Responds to Anti-Chiropractic Remarks Made By WFAN Radio Host

On the May 2nd WFAN 66AM Sports Radio Show, Boomer & Carton, hosted by Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, the topic of discussion was the rib injury suffered by the Yankees pitcher, Phil Hughes. During the discussion, a caller, identifying himself as “Dr. Ron” and a chiropractor in Orange County, NY, attempted to give his explanation about the complexity of the injury and how it could affect his ability to play. However, before this doctor was able to offer an explanation regarding Hughes’ condition, Carton rudely interrupted the doctor and began a long-winded chiropractic bashing, replete with a quack attack that berated the profession and mocked chiropractic education. (To hear the replay go to and listen to the audio clips dated 5/2/08, entitled “ You SIR, are not a doctor ” and 5/9/08 entitled “ Harry Carson.”). After receiving numerous complaints from the NYSCA membership, a letter was crafted by NYSCA President, Dr. Mariangela Penna and Executive Director, Dr. Karl Kranz, chastising Carton for his insulting remarks. This letter was sent to WFAN’s program director and the NYSCA is eagerly awaiting his response. The swift action that the NYSCA took on this matter is just another example of how we are constantly protecting your right to practice chiropractic in this state. The ACA and the NY Chiropractic Council have also voiced their displeasure with Carton’s remarks and chiropractic organizations in adjacent states have been alerted of the talk show host’s potentially libelous remarks. We look forward to continuing to serve you and all of the chiropractors practicing in New York. To see a copy of this letter click on the link below:

New York Assemblyman George S. Latimer offers suggestions on how to best accomplish our legislative objectives

Assemblyman Latimer, of the 91st District, a strong and outspoken proponent of Chiropractic attends NYSCA District 8 (Westchester) April 12 Meeting. The Assemblyman 91st District encompasses City of Rye, Town of Rye (Village of Port Chester, Rye Brook, and Mamaroneck), Town of Mamaroneck, Larchmont and part of New Rochelle. Assemblyman started his appearance before the NYSCA District 8 meeting with a comparison. "Political life is like being Elizabeth Taylor's seventh husband - you know what's expected of you but can you equal the performance?" District 8 President Dr. Janusz Richards stated that Assemblyman Latimer equaled the performance Wednesday night, with his most informative talk, giving all present very specific direction on how to best accomplish our legislative aims. "Get your story to the legislators - let them know what you do." Mr. Latimer distributed handouts of our insurance equality correction bill (A04527) and our workers compensation bill (A08340) both of which he is a co-sponsor. He has worked closely with us in the past. However, he admitted that Wednesday's meeting was a learning experience for him, i.e. NYS Business Council's history of opposition to chiropractic legislation and the reasons why. Although a freshman Assemblyman, who is running for re-election this November, he comes from a most accomplished background. Originally schooled and worked in the hotel industry he is married with one daughter. He is a former City of Rye Councilman, Past Chairman of the Westchester County Democratic Party, and Past Chairman of the Westchester County Board of Legislators. It was a most profitable evening for all those that attended. All came away with strong feelings of support for this true friend of the profession. Ms. Taylor would be proud of him!
