  • 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 extensions of licenses beyond 180 days from discharge and may request a waiver or extension of time to complete continuing education requirements due to hardship.  Please view Active Duty/Discharge Renewal Extension Form #R210.
