This case involved a patient who claimed the chiropractor told her she was suffering from central nervous system impairments and claimed to use light therapy to treat the conditions. These claims were always denied by the chiropractor. The Professional Conduct Committee found that the patient lacked credibility and was mistaken in certain aspects of her evidence.
For the admitted mistakes on the chiropractor’s website the Committee found these did not amount to unacceptable professional conduct. This case is a good example of the effect of making appropriate concessions where necessary.
