​​​License Information

Per Wis. Stat. § 440.08 (2), the required renewal date for the Chiropractic credential is 12/15/even years.  Should you receive your initial credential in the months leading up to this date, you are still required to renew your license by the statutorily defined date.  

The Board may grant a temporary permit to practice chiropractic to any chiropractor, who files an application prescribed by the Board, pays the required fee, has a chiropractic license in good standing in another jurisdiction, and has no disciplinary action pending in connection with any chiropractic license the applicant holds.

  • A chiropractor practicing under a temporary permit is only allowed to practice as a chiropractor for participants in an athletic or artistic event, or as an instructor in a specific chiropractor education seminar approved for continuing education by the Board.
  • A temporary permit is valid for 10 calendar days during the 12-month period immediately following its effective date, but no single period of practice under the temporary permit may exceed three (3) calendar days.

Wisconsin Act 210 (effective June 1, 2012)

This Act extends the license of a service member if the license expires while they are on active duty from 90 days to 180 days from the date of discharge. The same applies to a spouse of a service member if the spouse does not practice under their license while the service member is on active duty and does not practice because the service member is on active duty.

This Act repeals a provision of prior law that required a service member to meet all of the requirements for license extension or renewal, except for continuing education requirements, in order to have the license extended.

Service members and spouses may request license extensions beyond 180 days from discharge and may request waivers or extensions of time to complete continuing education requirements due to hardship.  Please view Active Duty/Discharge Renewal Extension Form #R210.
