Our Mission

The Association is an organization “for doctors by doctors”. We are dedicated to the service of our members, our profession, and the enhancement to the quality of life for our patients. We are committed to the education of our members, our patients, other healthcare professionals, and the public at large.


We honor the diversity and heritage that is chiropractic, and will strive to promote unity without uniformity within our profession. The Association will support each member and protect their practice rights as well as our profession’s regional autonomy.

We embrace chiropractic as a unique healthcare discipline that leads the field of health and wellness, one that focuses on the restoration of health by promoting the innate recuperative and restorative powers of the human body, without the use of unnecessary drugs or surgery. We believe that chiropractic should maintain its unique identity while working cooperatively with other health care disciplines.

Free from discrimination or interference, we support the basic human right for a patient to select the type of care and the healthcare provider of their choice. We believe that all persons should have direct access to chiropractic care. We ultimately see chiropractic as the “logical first resource for health”.
