Chiro board insists it's cracking down on rogue practitioners

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

On Monday, 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 national law by making false, misleading or deceptive claims.
