Chiropractor found not guilty of Unacceptable Professional Conduct for excessive treatment case

This was yet another case in a long line of cases where the GCC alleged over treatment and/or excessive treatment plans without clinical justification. This case involved a complaint by a patient after a chiropractor had recommended a course of 34 treatments. The allegation involved various complaints including a failure to assess and reassess the patient’s progress, failure to review, inadequate treatment plan and inadequate diagnosis.

The Professional Conduct Committee dismissed most of the allegations (including the excessive treatment) and found the remaining particulars could not amount to Unacceptable Professional Conduct.
