The Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners is tasked with enforcing the advertising law for chiropractors. Dr. Larry Spicer, the board director, said he does not have any open complaints on advertising practices. He said that Attorney General Lori Swanson’s office has advised the board not to enforce the law at this time because of pending litigation.

After the amendments were passed last year, 1-800-411-PAIN and its executives sued the board to prevent the law’s implementation. A federal judge in December said the board can enforce the law, but 1-800-411-PAIN appealed that ruling.

Despite the attorney general’s advice, Spicer said the board’s website clearly states that chiropractors should be obeying it.

“Doctors of chiropractic are advised to be aware of the conditions of this statute, and comply accordingly with all advertising requirements, including these,” the website says.

Spicer would not comment on ProSpine’s advertisement.

My colleague, by the way, wasn’t injured.
