Chiropractic Unity: a Japanese Perspective

Can you envision the day when one national, unified, chiropractic association represents the United States? How would such an eventuality come to pass? There are some precedents for chiropractic national unity in other countries: Japan and Australia, for instance.

American Medical News Features Article on Wilk et al. Settlement

The weekly newspaper of the American Medical Association, the American Medical News (AMN), was forced, as part of the Wilk et al. settlement, to publish in its January 13, 1992 issue Judge Getzedanner's injuction order against the AMA, the revised AMA opinion on chiropractors, and an article by anti-trust lawyer, Mr. George McAndrews. (See January 31, issue of "DC".)

The front page of the January 20, 1992 issue of the AMN presents its own article on the settlement. The article is a fair and unbiased chronicle of the case's history, and an assessment of the consequences of the settlement.
