Wyoming Board of Chiropractic Examiners
In light of recent events, several licensees have asked the Board to advise them how best to continue their practice and have specifically asked for the Board’s guidance on potential office closures.
The Board of Chiropractic Examiners cannot close your office due to COVID-19. If there would be any mandatory closures, it would not come from our office. We also cannot advise you on the correct course of action. The following links may help you make an informed decision regarding your business.
Licensees are still required to adhere to the Board’s Rules, Practice Act, and professional standards related to their professions.
Creation of the Board
The Wyoming Legislature created the Board of Chiropractic Examiners in 1929 to protect and promote the welfare of the public by regulating the practice of chiropractic.
There may be times the Board finds it necessary to make specific determinations about various practice related questions. As they are determined, they are posted on the Practice Guidance page of the Board's website, under the "Chiropractors" link above.
The ultimate responsibility of the Board is to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Wyoming by ensuring that those individuals licensed to provide chiropractic services in the state are duly qualified.
Who must be licensed
Chiropractic is the system of specific adjustment or manipulation of the joints and tissues of the body and the treatment of the human body by the application of manipulative, manual, mechanical, physiotherapeutic or clinical nutritional methods for which those persons licensed under this chapter are trained and may include venipuncture, acupuncture and the use of diagnostic x-rays with rights for referral for advanced diagnostic imaging. A chiropractor may examine, diagnose and treat patients provided, however, chiropractors shall not perform surgery, direct the use of or administer drugs required by law to be dispensed on prescription only, practice obstetrics or prescribe or administer x-ray therapy. For purposes of this act, "venipuncture" means the puncture of the vein for the withdrawal of blood.
