There are more than 9,000 licenced chiropractors practicing in Canada. Each has completed a rigourous academic and practical education (including national standardized educational requirements) and passed a licencing examination (by province) to become a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC).
Canadian chiropractors adopt evidence-informed practice principles to guide clinical decision making by integrating their clinical expertise, patient’s preferences and values, and the best available scientific evidence.
Canada’s chiropractors are spine, muscle and nervous system experts. They diagnose the causes and treat patients to relieve pain and prevent it from returning – helping them be healthy and active.
