Ohio chiropractors may make call on concussions

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio lawmakers are still disagreeing on whether chiropractors should be allowed to clear young athletes for play after they suffer concussions.

After such language was removed from a bill last month, the House this week agreed to a provision that would again pull chiropractors back into the mix.

Moves in previous years to allow chiropractors to make judgments about whether students with head injuries are fit to play has upset some physicians who say chiropractors don't have the proper training for that responsibility.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the latest amendment could get some pushback in the Senate. Sen. Bill Seitz, a Cincinnati Republican, voiced his disapproval and recommended the measure be addressed by conference committee.
