The Board of Chiropractic Examiners (BCE) has adopted new safety regulations regarding Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA). The regulations, recently approved by the Office of Administrative Law, will go into effect on April 16, 2010.

"The BCE has been working diligently to improve the standards of care in the chiropractic profession in California for the past two years, and the MUA regulations in particular are a very significant achievement for us." said Fred N. Lerner, D.C., Chair of the BCE. "The MUA regulations are a very important step forward to protect consumers of chiropractic services. Our Board members, staff, DCA Legal and stakeholders are working together on other regulations to improve patient safety and consumer protection, which we hope to be able to announce over the coming months."
