Chiro board hits back at malpractice accusations

The Chiropractic Board of Australia has rubbished accusations it is failing to rein in chiropractors running false or misleading ads about the care they offer patients.

On Tuesday anti-quackery campaigner Dr Ken Harvey claimed the board had failed to take action on 10 complaints he had made about websites run by chiropractors, which, he said, appeared to breach the law by making false, misleading or deceptive claims.
