Should chiropractors be allowed to prescribe some pharmaceuticals or over the counter medications with proper training? Some say yes, others disagree. Some regions are actually changing their laws to permit this limited prescription ability. I spoke with Dr. John J. Triano, Dean of Graduate Education and Research at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and one of the best known chiropractic researchers. He’s also a former clinician at the world renowned Texas Back Institute. I wanted to gain some prespective on this issue. Dr. Triano discussed his views on chiropractors prescribing medications but also talked about rational chiropractic and why subluxation may be the cause of the downfall of chiropractic in the United States.
