In a recent opinion of the Attorney General regarding the practice of chiropractic, the definitions of chiropractic that appear in s. 446.01 (2), Stats., and ss. Chir 4.02 and 4.03, contain general language which does not provide specific guidance to chiropractors and to practitioners of other professions. In this proposed rule-making order the board creates additional, more specific language.
