Statement from the CAA

A NSW chiropractor has been convicted of unlawfully advertising a regulated health service and using testimonials under Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law). 

He was sentenced yesterday at the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney after pleading guilty to 13 charges filed by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) in April 2016.

The Chiropractors' Association of Australia (CAA) expects all chiropractors should adhere to their obligations under National Law.

The Code of Conduct for Chiropractors requires every practitioner to provide safe and effective health services within an ethical framework determined by National Law and the Chiropractic Board of Australia.

CAA members must adhere to a high level of professional competence, conduct and ethics, including when advertising.
