New Boy Scouts Policy Prohibits DCs From Performing Physicals

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) recently implemented a policy that does not allow doctors of chiropractic to provide the mandatory BSA physical.

The American Chiropractic Association is currently working with other chiropractic organizations to provide BSA with additional information regarding the educational credentials of DCs and their ability and licensure to perform physicals.

If you or your affected patient(s) would like to comment to BSA directly regarding this policy change, please contact the local BSA council or call the BSA main office at 972-580-2000. If you would like your comments included in ACA's correspondence to BSA, please forward them to .
