The COVID-19 pandemic is an ever changing situation. It is difficult to disseminate the most up-to-date information in a timely manner. With the concerns about coronavirus, 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.

Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB)- Statement

March 23, 2020: All licensees are advised that anyone making claims that adjustments can provide immunity to the flu or coronavirus is likely in violation of statute and rule relating to both scope of practice and advertising claims.

Given there are no specific guidelines from the national and international agencies at this time for chiropractic offices, we recommend that you use discretion and consider the cautions for everyone to stay home as much as possible.  We recommend that you use heightened screening protocols with patients regarding travel / exposure / illness and those with increased risk / vulnerability, before accepting them into your clinic. 

You can assume the care of acute musculoskeletal cases, thus relieving the burden on medical and emergency facilities allowing them to focus on medical and virus-related patients. However, in light of the pandemic and the Governor’s order for social distancing, you should treat only acute cases.

Close your waiting room and have patients wait in their car until you're ready to see them.  Use discretion and best practices regarding safety for your staff and patients.

 Watch the news and governing agencies such as the CDC and Governor for updates and changes to the guidelines and directive.  

COVID-19: How to Contact the Board

Due to the current COVID-19 health emergency, the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE) is practicing social distancing.  We ask that you conduct all business with the MBCE via email, online or by phone.  You may find our contact information on this page.

If you must come in personally, admittance will be limited to one person at a time. Please do not bring others, such as children, with you as they will be required to wait in the hall.  The specific staff member you wish to speak to may be working at a remote location and only available by phone or email.

ALERT!! Phishing Scam!  Phone 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.
