Once again, Team TCA took the field to battle for the chiropractic profession. Once again, the TMA is challenging YOUR right to diagnose, but this time they are challenging the state's definition of musculoskeletal and subluxation because they include reference to the nerves. TCA will submit its final arguments next week in preparation for a final hearing. We continue to raise funds to cover the cost of legal expenses from this latest attack from TMA. For those who have donated to TCA’s Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI), thank you! If you haven’t helped yet, there’s still time on the clock to make a monthly, quarterly or a one-time donation. But let’s not wait; get in the game now. Donate today!

Ever since the passage of Medicare, it has been impossible to separate medicine from congressional politics. Decisions made by the overseers at those programs affect medical and chiropractic practice every day.
