The Supreme Court of Texas has Reached a Decision Regarding TBCE v. Texas Medical Association

Greeley, CO. – The Supreme Court of Texas has reached a decision in TBCE v. Texas Medical Association. The decision made by the Supreme Court of Texas underlines the value of allowing chiropractic physicians to practice the full range of their specialized skills in caring for patients and ensures that the public has access to safe, well-regulated chiropractic care.

The Texas Supreme Court opinion reversed the earlier Court of Appeals decision which struck the Chiropractic Board rules and found that including “nerve” exceeded the statutory scope of practice. The Court went on to say, “Simply put, a healthcare provider cannot diagnose a problem without ruling out other potential causes of the problem. In other words, making a differential diagnosis is an unavoidable part of making a diagnosis. Virtually any problem that a chiropractor treats could potentially have a non-chiropractic source.”

The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards provided financial support for the filing of an Amicus brief to allow additional representation for the chiropractic profession. Our organizations applaud those who have worked towards this decision and what it means for chiropractic patients and overall public health.

Headquartered in Greeley, Colorado, the NBCE is a non-profit testing organization ensuring professional competency in chiropractic skills through excellence in testing. Established in 1963, the NBCE develops, administers, and scores standardized examinations for candidates seeking chiropractic licensure in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in several international countries.

SFI® Health Introduces EQUAZEN® PRO: a Medical Food to Support Learning, Concentration, and Brain Development in Children and Adolescents with ADHD†

RENO, Nev., December 7, 2020 – Today, Soho Flordis International (SFI® Health)—a leading provider of premium, evidence-based nutraceuticals and the home of Klaire Labs®—announced the U.S. launch of EQUAZEN® PRO, a medical food specifically designed to nutritionally support children and adolescents with ADHD whose polyunsaturated fatty acid deficiencies cannot be rebalanced through the modification of normal diet alone. 

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological condition that affects nearly 6.1 million children in the U.S. alone. It is traditionally managed with pharmacotherapy, behavioral therapy, or a combination of the two. However, up to 30% of individuals do not respond to stimulant medications, and there are concerns and controversies surrounding the side effects and long-term safety of such drugs. 

Within the context of these concerns, as well as the growing prevalence of ADHD, Equazen Pro—supported by over 15 years of ongoing clinical research—represents innovative nutritional support, both alone and in combination with traditional ADHD therapies.

“Parents and practitioners alike are seeking cognitive health solutions for children that are not only effective but also safe to use over the long term,” said Divya Ramakrishnan, GM, SFI Health Americas. “Equazen Pro has been studied in 19 clinical trials, including trials where it showed significant improvements in children’s attention control, vocabulary, memory, inattentive behavior, balanced mood, and academic performance, while also demonstrating a high safety profile.”

Both the development and the beneficial outcomes of Equazen Pro are directly tied to emerging research that demonstrates a connection between ADHD and long-chain omega fatty acid metabolism. Many individuals with ADHD have substantial deficiencies of essential fatty acids, as well as marked omega-3/omega-6 ratio imbalances. Such deficiencies, which are linked to genetic differences found in those with ADHD, are thought to negatively affect key brain functions and inflammatory pathways in the brain. 

By combining higher amounts of EPA with DHA, and an optimal balance of GLA, Equazen Pro helps the body to overcome those unique genetic differences, supplying essential omega fatty acids in forms directly usable by the body to promote healthy fatty acid balance and, thus, healthy cognitive and neurological functions.

The Equazen Pro formulation originated in the UK over 20 years ago, with focused efforts to address lipid deficiencies linked to learning conditions. This innovative product was also subject to a robust clinical development program that validated its unique formulation. In 2015, the Equazen portfolio of products was purchased by SFI Health and is now distributed in 26 countries worldwide. With this new launch—which is defined by our commitment to supporting children and adolescents with ADHD around the globe—Equazen Pro is now available to U.S. healthcare practitioners and their patients as a medical food. 

Equazen Pro is a medical food designed to address omega fatty acid metabolic differences in children and adolescents with ADHD, supplying the clinically tested ratio EPA:DHA:GLA=9:3:1 to promote healthy fatty acid metabolism and balanced omega fatty acid levels.

EQUAZEN® PRO is a medical food to support learning, concentration, and brain development in children/adolescents with ADHD who have been determined by medical evaluation to require nutritional management of polyunsaturated fatty acid deficiencies that cannot be achieved by modification of normal diet alone.

Cash-Based Practice: Is it for You & Your Practice?

Cash-based practices are becoming the foundation of your ability to communicate value to your patients. Whether you currently run a cash-based practice, partial cash-based practice, or still an insurance based practice, looking into how a cash-based practice can benefit you is worth this read. Pivotal Health Solutions Chiropractic inquired some of our clinical doctors about how they run their practice and how to make yours succeed- cash-based or not.

Health insurance. Some people have it, some people don’t. Insurance can be terribly expensive, and some insurance doesn’t cover certain check-ups. Chiropractors, for example, used to not have theinsurance benefits most medical practitioners had. Many early chiropractors had to keep moving their offices so that spotters from the medical boards wouldn’t arrest them for practicing medicine without a license (Phil Mancuso, D.C., 1994). Some chiropractors would see upwards of 70 patients a day, living paycheck to paycheck because they were forced to wait for their insurance payments!

Nowadays, a lot of chiropractors are making the transition to an entirely cash-based practice.Chiropractic house- calls, walk in appointments, and even scheduled appointments are being paid for strictly with cash. Although the foundation of a cash-based practice relies on your ability to communicate value to your patients, chiropractors who chose this method of practice need to have the proper procedures, equipment and systems in place to collect more cash from their patients, rely less on the dependence of insurance collections, and apply the appropriate legal discounts to care.

A lot of chiropractors that choose to use a cash-based model in their practice do so because it keeps everyone’s costs down- the chiropractor’s and the patient’s. Depending on the insurance carrier, the fees are usually higher. Some chiropractors have fees as low as $20 for an adjustment. Also, medical insurance companies have strict guidelines for practitioners, resulting in higher fees, which continues to steer chiropractors away from insurance practices.

Do you have to choose between strictly cash or strictly insurance? No! Dr. Jarrod Nichols, of Nichols Chiropractic in Manhattan, KS, uses a 70%-30% model.

” 70% of my practice is insurance-based and the other 30% is cash-based. Although Nichols Chiropractic isn’t entirely “cash-based,” I like to be flexible to my patients and will serve patients who have insurance, though choose to pay using a cash plan.”

Dr. Jerad Bludorn, of Lake Norden Family Chiropractic, says he runs a primarily insurance-based practice, although he does occasionally treat patients via cash. 

“In the state of South Dakota, we are restricted by fee-for-service laws and pre-payment for services. Although “going-green” is the way to go for other chiropractors, it is not necessarily where I want to be in the state of South Dakota, although I will set a fair rate for fee-for service.”

For treatments such as laser therapy and manual therapy techniques, modalities such as Apollo Cold Laser treatments andWhole Body Vibration, as well as exercise programs by a chiropractor would most likely fall under cash payment. Why? A lot of these treatments fall outside of what is covered by insurance, not just in South Dakota.

Some doctors have been operating a 100% cash-based practice for years. Dr. Curtis Turchin has been operating a cash practice for over 20 years. 

“There are dramatically more advantages than disadvantages to having a cash practice for chiropractors, such as immediate imbursement, rather than waiting for insurance reimbursements; chiropractors are reimbursed at a much lower level than other health care providers.”

5 Reasons to “Go-Green”

Benefits to running a cash-based chiropractic practice

  • Immediate payment for services
  • Dramatically lower overhead (burden or indirect costs) than a billing practice
  • Lower staff & reporting requirements
  • Ability to develop pre-payment plans for treatment regimens
  • Lower tax deductibles for your practice


Although having a cash-based practice can be quite beneficial to you and your patients, cash-based may not be for you, and that’s ok! You may have a slower client base and billing insurance can open up your practice to patients who can only afford treatments if their insurance pays for their visit. Maybe you just aren’t interested in maintaining a cash-based practice, or your state has certain requirements and regulations, whatever you choose for you and your patients, always keep in mind that a cash-based payment system can eventually work into your practice!

Plantar Fasciitis? Maybe Not, So Don’t Ice It!

For athletes who are training hard, the stabbing pain of plantar fasciitis is all too common. Most often, when pain is felt into the bottom of the foot, it is instantly diagnosed as “plantar fasciitis.” I say, let’s take a hard look at all the reasons there might be pain in the bottom of the foot and try to eliminate those reasons. And, let’s not be too quick to give a medical condition to everyone who experiences pain or discomfort.

So before you pull out that cold pack, ask yourself: What about trigger point therapy?

Trigger points, or contracted areas in muscle, are common causes of aches and pains, but are woefully under-diagnosed. Knowing which trigger points can cause or refer pain into the bottom of the feet can mean the difference between spending time on the bench or competing. Athletes or other clients who present with pain in the bottom of the foot are often told that they have plantar fasciitis even if there was no MRI performed. But if the plantar foot pain is actually due to trigger points in the gastroc or soleus muscles, these clues can help you determine if this is the case:

  1. The athlete may feel a loss of strength or power when pushing off or jumping.
  2. The athlete may report a feeling of tightness in the calf or the feeling of being on the verge of a calf cramp if they point their toes strongly.
  3. The athlete has restricted range of motion in the ankle and/or in straight leg dorsiflexion.


If foot pain is due to a trigger point, most athletes and clients experience real and rapid relief once trigger point therapy is applied. Here’s how to get started.

1. Invest in an elevating electric table.

To spare your back and to help further athlete comfort, an elevating electric table is essential.

Some athletic training rooms only have static tables at one height, but I would promote having at least one elevating electric table in the training room. The ability to bring the table up to the height of the practitioner during trigger point and other therapies helps mitigate the impact of treatment on a provider. Also, athletes in pain will appreciate that a table that can be lowered so that they can more safely get on the treatment surface.

As a side note, if your practice or training room works with athletes who are physically challenged (such as paralympians or para-athletes), elevating electric tables help ensure that you are ADA compliant and mobility friendly.

2. Provide support with a bolster.

During treatment, your athlete will typically lay prone on your table. But while in this position, you don’t want them to be maximally resting on the top of the foot, which could cause calf cramping and additional pain. Make sure that your training room has sturdy bolsters that are easily accessible (not tucked away in a storage room) to provide support for the lower leg and ankle.

3. Assess the ability of the ankle to bend.

Full, pain-free dorsi flexion and plantar flexion are required for the lower leg muscles working properly. Key indicators of trigger points (besides taut, ropey fiber sections) can be any restrictions in the range of motion of the gastroc or soleus muscles. Many athletic trainers may not realize that those two muscles—which are located in the calf just above the Achilles tendon—harbor trigger points that can refer pain into the bottom of the foot.

By using a bolster to support the ankle while the calf is available to be treated, it’s easy to feel for dysfunctional fibers in the medial, uppermost gastroc and the lower one-third of the soleus.

4. Use the trigger point illustrations to help locate the most probable location of taut fibers and then apply trigger point pressure release or other manual therapy techniques.

Athletic trainers may already be familiar with these trigger point locations, but for a comprehensive guide, refer to Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, a two-volume set by Drs. Janet G. Travell and David G. Simons. Other helpful publications include the most recent addition to the trigger point family, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition or my book, Trigger Point Therapy for Low Back Pain (see chapter 14).

5. Athletic trainers should instruct athletes to continue careful active range of motion and home self-care. Self-applied trigger point pressure release may need to be done by the athlete during workouts, and before or after competition.

After treatment, athletes can resume regular activity with care and should also use at-home applications of compression. Many excellent tools are available for self-care compression into the gastroc/soleus muscles, including the Jacknobber, Knobble or The Original Backnobber.

As athletic trainers, you care about ensuring your athletes’ peak performance. Trigger point therapy is one way to help you get there. Trigger points can reduce athletes’ running speed, endurance and jumping abilities that are used in many different sports. With or without the presence of pain, they can also be the cause of athletes hitting a plateau, despite great training. But once a trigger point is deactivated and the muscle has been brought to its normal resting length, athletic performance improves almost instantly.

She is a BOC- and NCBTMB-approved provider for athletic trainers as well as for massage therapists. For more information, visit

TCC Names Dr. Stephen Foster President

PASADENA, Texas – The Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) Board of Regents has named Stephen Foster, DC, F.I.C.C. as the institution’s 15th president. Dr. Foster has spent more than 25 years with TCC as a student, faculty member and administrator, most recently as Provost.  Dr. Foster’s effective date as President is July 18, 2016.

The board truly appreciates the broad participation of the TCC community in the presidential search process,” stated Dr. Monte Blue, Chairman of the TCC Board of Regents.  “After a lengthy, thoughtful and active interview process which included all stakeholders, the board met this past Saturday morning, July 9, 2016 to select the new president.  Dr. Foster was unanimously elected to lead TCC”. 

Dr. Foster graduated from TCC in 1990 and had a successful practice in Spring, Texas prior to returning to his alma mater in 1994.  As an attending clinician, he accepted the responsibility of passing on his knowledge and developing the clinical skills needed for future doctors of chiropractic.  Between 1995 and 2012 Dr. Foster accepted more and more responsibilities in administrative positions. These roles included Student Clinic Director, Clinic Chief of Staff, Director of Clinics, and Director of Clinical Experiences.  He was the founding Director of Assessment and Development, establishing TCC’s innovative Assessment Center as the standard in chiropractic education. In addition to his clinical teaching experience, Dr. Foster has taught numerous courses at TCC and, most recently, has maintained strong relationships with faculty, staff and students as the Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost.

It is an honor and a privilege to be entrusted by the board to lead my alma mater,” shared Dr. Foster. “To have such strong support from the board, faculty, staff and students is humbling and a responsibility I do not take lightly. As one of the oldest chiropractic colleges, TCC has a distinguished 108-year history. I look forward to working closely with the whole TCC community, especially our many alumni around the world to ensure a bright future.”

Dr. Foster has made it a priority to be an active member of his community, both personally and professionally. A life-long resident of the Gulf Coast area, he attended San Jacinto College for his pre-chiropractic studies prior to enrolling at Texas Chiropractic College. He has served on the board of directors for both the Bridge Over Troubled Waters and the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce.  Professionally, he has shared his expertise in chiropractic and chiropractic education authoring numerous publications. Additionally, Dr. Foster served the profession by serving on numerous national committees including the Test Committee for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Site Team Academy for the Council on Chiropractic Education, and as an Elected Councilor for the Council on Chiropractic Education.  

“Throughout its history, Texas Chiropractic College has been a leader in the education of new chiropractors” noted Dr. Monte Blue. “With his extensive background in chiropractic education we, the board, believe Dr. Foster is the right person to lead TCC for many years to come.”
