URGENT COVID-19 STATEMENT
Throughout Europe and beyond clinics are closing to safeguard patients and staff from COV-19. This will inevitably cause hardship and anguish. We extend our sympathy to those affected and will be doing our best to avoid contributing to these difficulties.
ECU member associations were alerted on 13 March to irresponsible claims that promote chiropractic care as boosting immune systems. They were advised to report instances to their ethical committees and to consider alerting national advertising standards authorities to such behaviour. The ECU wishes to emphasise that we know of no evidence supporting these claims and that we condemn advertising of this type as inappropriate and dangerous. We urge all chiropractors to follow the guidance of the WHO and their national health authorities regarding COV-19.
