Vision and Values

As we celebrate over 25 years of being the peak body representing chiropractors, we reflect back on how we have helped grow chiropractic over the last two and a half decades. Evidence of this can be seen in the latest IBISWorld Report, which highlighted that the profession has seen 3.5% growth and is expected to grow further. And with our new strategic plan in place, we are excited about supporting chiropractors even more, and through them, enhancing the health of the community.
