She claims it's an issue of politics, but chiropractors say it's a matter of public safety.

Either way, Tammy Kennedy finds herself in the middle of a firestorm tonight.

Tammy Kennedy has no formal training but says she learned everything she knows from her grandfather, who was a chiropractor in Enid for 30 years.

But, the Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners has a real problem with that and is fighting to shut her down.

Genevieve Guenther is seeking relief from her aches and pains. She's been a client of Tammy Kennedy's for several years now and believes in her work.

But Kennedy's method of treatment is being challenged.

The Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners says she's practicing its profession without a license.

Kennedy calls herself a nerve signal interference specialist. She says her grandfather, Earl Craton - an Enid chiropractor for 30 years, passed his knowledge onto her.

Her credentials come from him and now hang on the wall in her office.

Tonight, we can tell you the Attorney General's office is involved in the investigation against Kennedy.

Until the AG's office takes action, Kennedy says she'll continue to see clients.

The fight against Kennedy recently gained new momentum when her television show was pulled from Enid's public access channel. The city claimed it contained "commercial content."

Kennedy is appealing the city's decision.
