According to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law – Section 133 – as a ‘regulated health service’ we must adhere to the rules that govern advertising for EVERY article, blog post, social media post, picture, video or comment that we make regarding that regulated profession – this includes providing links for Chiropractic References Research articles that we rely on.

Specifically we “must not advertise a regulated health service, or a business that provides a regulated health service, in a way that –

  1. is false, misleading or deceptive or is likely to be …; or
  2. offers a gift, discount or other inducement …, unless the advertisement also states the terms and conditions of the offer; or
  3. uses testimonials or purported testimonials about the service or business; or
  4. creates an unreasonable expectation of beneficial treatment; or
  5. directly or indirectly encourages the indiscriminate or unnecessary use of regulated health services
