Safer Care Victoria has established an independent panel to review the chiropractic practice of spinal manipulation on children under 12.
We're now seeking a wide variety of views to inform our review. Have your say: engage.vic.gov.au.
The panel includes experts in paediatrics and musculoskeletal care, consumers, and representatives from the Chiropractic Board of Australia and Australian Chiropractors Association.
The panel will:
- examine and assess the available evidence, including information from consumers, providers, and other stakeholders, for the use of spinal manipulation by chiropractors on children less than 12 years of age
- provide recommendations regarding this practice to the Victorian Minister for Health.
