WELCOME to new Executive Director Ridge Pidde!

HAPPY RETIREMENT Micki Becker! Thank you so much for your service to the State of Minnesota!


Our Mission

The MISSION of the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE) is to protect the public through effective licensure and enforcement of the statutes and rules governing the practice of chiropractic to ensure a standard of competent and ethical practice in the profession.

It is with great sadness that the Board must report the sudden and unexpected passing of one of our staff, Ronald Arnold on October 29, 2022. Jill Warner started as Compliance Specialist on December 12, 2022. We have not yet fully come to grips with this loss.  Please be patient as we attempt to carry on in his absence. If you were in correspondence with Mr. Arnold on any matter, please direct future correspondence to Jill.Warner@state.mn.us.

ALERT!! Phishing Scam!  Phone Scam! Letter Scam!


The MN Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Board) does not discuss or request any confidential matters over the phone.  Due to the Minnesota Data Practices Act, all confidential communications with the Board are handled through written correspondence.  Be wary of phone calls demanding confidential information such as Social Security numbers or threatening legal or criminal action against you.  Scammers are able to mimic known phone numbers in your caller ID making it appear that the Board is calling you.  You are encouraged to hang up and contact the Board directly if you receive a suspicious call.  If a caller threatens that your license will be taken away unless you "pay now"; do not pay.  The Board will never call you to request money.   You may find more information in this Press Release from the DEA.

New Information has been reported that these scammers have morphed different Boards' letterhead and even the Executive Director's signature.  If you receive a threatening letter from the Board demanding action for which you have not received prior notice, call the Board directly before taking any action demanded in the letter.

StaySafeMN INFORMATION - Updated 04/21/2022 

          https://mn.gov/covid19/     #StaySafeMN

The pandemic is an ever changing situation. It is difficult to disseminate the most up-to-date information in a timely manner. We want to reassure you that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE) is remaining focused on our mission of public health and protection during these unprecedented times.

The MBCE encourages all chiropractors to stay up-to-date with recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health departments in regard to COVID-19.

Policy #1442 Enterprise Face Covering Policy Rescinded

Effective Monday, February 28, the State rescinded its enterprise face covering policy, HR/LR policy #1442. If appropriate, building signage can be removed.

This change was done in conjunction with the CDC’s updated masking guidance, which was released last Friday. Under the new guidance, nearly 70% of the U.S. population lives in an area considered to be low or medium risk, and residents there are advised they can go indoors without masks.

As a reminder, if agencies have adopted agency-level face covering policies, they are permitted to continue enforcing those policies – or adopting new policies. Agencies that are subject to CMS face covering requirements must continue to comply with those requirements. And even if there is no agency-level policy or other requirement, employees who feel more comfortable doing so are welcome to continue wearing a face covering.

How to Contact the Board

Upon reopening on April 22, 2022 from COVID19 shutdown, the State is moving toward hybrid work environments. Under the hybrid work environment, most staff will be working remotely most of the time. As a result, the Board has accelerated its move toward an electronic platform and in-person customer visits are by appointment only. Please check the Board Information > Staff Member page above for the name and contact information of the person best suited to assist you. Do not show up without prior arrangements as there may not be someone present who can assist you. We ask that you continue to conduct all business with the MBCE via email, online or by phone.  You may find our contact information on this page

(Arrangements have been made to accept deliveries from the USPS, UPS and FedEx.) Documents delivered or dropped off at the office will be considered received on the date our staff actually receives them, not the date they are dropped off.

Please know that our mission to process applications, continuing education, and complaints to ensure a standard of competent and ethical practice continues, though some activities have been modified for this new electronic environment, our mission to protect the health and safety of the public, including our clients and staff, is our utmost priority.
