Chiropractors turn out for Feb. 2 Legislative Day


Dozens of Washington state chiropractors gathered in Olympia Thursday, Feb. 2 for the 2017 Washington State Chiropractic Trust/Washington State Chiropractic Association Legislative Day.

After receiving a briefing from WSCA Executive Director/Lobbyist Lori Grassi and WSCT President Dave Butters, chiropractors spread across the Capitol campus for individual meetings with their state senators and representatives — and talk about unfair payment to chiropractors for spinal manipulation services. Chiropractors are paid up to 50 percent less than other providers who deliver spinal manipulation. There has been no increase in chiropractic reimbursement for spinal manipulation in more than 13 years.

Miss Legislative Day? You are welcome to come to Olympia at any time and meet separately with lawmakers. If you need help, contact Shaka Forest at the WSCA office at 206-878-6055 or sforest@chirohealth.org. He is ready to help you find your legislator as well as call for appointments for you.
