Chiropractors have long been revered for their ability to improve lives.
The way they understand the human body, its joints, and how they align is unparalleled, to say the least. That kind of accuracy takes years of practice to achieve. The truth is, it’s an extremely difficult profession to get into, and it can be devastating if your license is revoked by the board after all of your hard work.
Chiropractors in California must adhere to rules set forth by the California Department of Consumer Affairs’ Board of Chiropractic examiners. This governing body decides whether or not you are allowed to practice within the state, and has the authority to deny or revoke your license at its own discretion.
Believe us; it’s more common for practitioners to face penalties than you think. In November 2019 alone (the most recent records the board has on file publicly), there were 19 citation issues.
Losing your license to practice can make you feel like there is little to no hope. However, there are roads that lead to reinstatement. Filing an appeal gives you the opportunity to plead your case. There is a very real chance that you could sway the board in your favor. That’s where Unlock Legal comes in. We will guide and inform you every step of the appeals process.
