Q&A with the NY State Board of Chiropractic Education

1) What is the role of the Chiropractic State Board?


The New York State Board for Chiropractic serves as the regulatory body for chiropractic in New York and serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Regents. There are over 50 different state boards that the Office of the Professions has established through the New York State Education Department. The primary role of these state boards is to protect the public by ensuring that complaints that are filed by consumers are investigated and dealt with fairly and in an unbiased nature. These complaints can be quite varied and can range from scope issues, boundary violations, fraud and any other aspect of unethical practice.

Update from the NYS Board of Chiropractic Education

Our July meeting at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls was a “twopart” meeting. After Executive Session (in which no disciplinary cases were discussed), Drs. Nicci and Mestan offered a presentation about the efforts that the College has recently put forth to advance the profession. These efforts involve the opening of new community outreaches as well as efforts to improve clinical experiences as graduates move on to treat a more diverse population. Also, within this presentation was a description of the changing demographic of chiropractors themselves, showing dramatic increases in the number of women and minorities following the chiropractic path. New Board members, Dr. Mark Craft and Dr. Elaina Pirro-Lombardi were officially welcomed.
