State officials have issued an order, restricting an Oskaloosa chiropractor’s interaction with patients after complaints that he engaged in inappropriate contact with female clients.
On Monday, chiropractor Jason Ebelsheiser was charged with five counts of sexual abuse in the third degree and one count of tampering with records. Now, three days later, the Iowa Board of Chiropractic argues the evidence shows the chiropractor “poses an immediate danger” to female patients .
Five female patients have accused the chiropractor of an inappropriate kind of intimate contact. Four of the patients were in their twenties; the fifth was 17.
The state board has imposed “interim safeguards” that call for an adult female chaperone to be present whenever he is working with patients and he is to give all his patients a written copy advising them of these new restrictions. He may no longer provide certain “soft-tissue” treatments in areas of the body where the five young women accuse him of making inappropriate contact.
