Chiropractor Bradley Eck files for bankruptcy

Wichita chiropractor Bradley Eck, whose business practices have brought disciplinary action from the Kansas Board of Healing Arts three times over the past six years, has filed for bankruptcy.

The board is listed among Eck's creditors, as is The Eagle.

Eck filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy and said in his petition that his debts are primarily business debts.

The bankruptcy petition, filed Dec. 29, estimated Eck's assets at $100,001 to $500,000 and liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.

Eck referred questions to his attorney, who did not return calls for comments.

In December, the Board of Healing Arts ordered Eck to complete a record-keeping course and suspended his license for 30 days. Those actions stemmed from a consent order filed in February 2009 over Eck's use of flat-fee contracts, his advertising and failure to maintain proper records. The board also took issue with Eck's advertising in 2004.

Eck, whose primary office is at 7348 W. 21st St., said in December that he planned to resume his practice after completing the requirements and said he'd arranged to have another chiropractor care for his patients during his time away.
