Federal judge rules in favor of chiropractic in Brazil

I’m a little behind in mentioning the good news out of Brazil. Remember my post on the efforts of the physiotherapists in Brazil attempting to have chiropractic declared a specialty instead of a seperate profession?

Well, on March 19, 2009 Federal Judge Diana Brunstein ruled strongly in favor of the ABQ (Brazilian Chiropractors’ Association).

She declared “chiropractic is a profession not a technique,” and PT authorities should not seek to declare it a specialty of physiotherapy. An appeal by CREFITO, the regulatory body for PT in the State of Sao Paulo, asking to remove an earlier court injunction against CREFITO, was denied.

This battle has obvious impact for the profession.
