Unlicensed Practice of Chiropractic
Persons practicing chiropractic without a valid North Dakota license are breaking the law. The Board has no jurisdiction over these individuals as they do not hold a license under the Board. Such persons should be reported to the Board and the County State’s Attorney for possible investigation and prosecution.
