Chiropractic Clinical Neuroscience Australia (CCNA) is a clinical interest group of the CAA, established to meet the growing enthusiasm from Chiropractors, and to stay up-to-date with the latest research and development in the field of clinical neuroscience.
The mission of CCNA is to:

This will include standardization documents on the utilization of various modalities and techniques in both assessment and management. Develop risk management policies, guidelines and procedures that protect the patients, the practitioners and the profession. Furthermore, to assist the public and profession in identifying those Chiropractors suitably trained in the field of clinical neuroscience, work to develop a recognition and titling system endorsed within the Chiropractic profession
- Advocate and represent Chiropractors with regulatory bodies and policy makers, forge reciprocal relationships with health professional associations and professions, as well key community and tertiary institutions. Additionally, act as a uniting bridge within our profession with a common and contemporary voice and identity.
- Promote the utilization and production of research in the field of clinical neuroscience as it relates to Chiropractic. Support Chiropractors and tertiary institutions in related research to show efficacy and effectiveness of Chiropractic with n-MSK and brain-based conditions.
