Court sets aside chiropractor drug reg

........................................................................................................................................................................................

SANTA FE (AP) — The state Court of Appeals has invalidated a government regulation spelling out the drugs that can be injected by certain chiropractors in New Mexico.

The court said Wednesday the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners failed to get necessary approval from the Medical Board and the Pharmacy Board in 2011 for a list of minerals and drugs that could be administered by chiropractors who completed additional training and education. The regulation has been on hold during the appeal.

The board contended it didn’t need approval from the groups that license physicians and pharmacists.

A board spokesman said no decision has been made on whether to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.

The Appeals Court upheld a board rule for the extra training required of an “advanced practice chiropractic physician.”
