CFOP Statement on the Usage of X-ray

The CFoP supports the right of each chiropractor to decide what is clinically appropriate for each individual patient regarding the use of X-ray.

Chiropractors are extensively trained, licensed, and recredentialed regarding X-ray physics, safety, proper technique, and clinical necessity.

Chiropractors are required to pass four National Board exams that qualify them to determine the necessity and efficacy to use X-rays within the scope of chiropractic practice.

This statement is supported by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards.
