On March 3, 2009, in the latest step by the Brazilian Chiropractors’ Association (ABQ) to defend the chiropractic profession against efforts by PTs to have chiropractic declared a specialty of physiotherapy, Federal Judge Diana Brunstein has ruled strongly in favour of the ABQ. Chiropractic is a profession not a technique, says Judge Brunstein, and PT authorities should not seek to declare it a specialty of physiotherapy. An appeal by CREFITO the regulatory body for PT in Sao Paulo, asking to remove an earlier court injunction against CREFITO was denied. See:
