DEFINITIONS OF CHIROPRACTIC:

A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation. - World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), Dictionary Definition, 2001

A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations. - World Health Organization (WHO), Guidelines on Chiropractic, 2005

Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient. - The Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC), Definition, 1996

President’s Message:

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Board of the Latin American Federation of Chiropractic let me use this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday and prosperous 2016 together with your family, friends and patients.

During the year FLAQ introduced some activities to help the development of chiropractic in our vast region at events such as the FLAQ General Assembly on May 14 during the WFC Congress in Greece also at the Radiology Seminar in the National University of Cordoba, Argentina, on 21 and 22 August, where the association of chiropractors committed to the formalization of a standardized chiropractic program, using the guidelines of the World Health Organization.

On the other hand, we were pleased with the graduation and completion of the Second Degree Programme in Chiropractic at the Central University of Chile which will be replaced by a Master’s Degree in Chiropractic and subsequently by an Undergraduate Program in Chiropractic. These took place during the First Latin American Congress of Management Interdisciplinary of the Spine in October 29-31.

Also Brazil and Mexico have organized seminars and workshops throughout the year to enrich and strengthen the knowledge of students and chiropractors in their respective universities to contribute to the growth of our beloved profession.

We have reached more people through our Facebook page and website, thanks to our sponsor Activator Methods.

We look forward to next year’s events and activities.

A warm and fraternal embrace for this Christmas,

Very truly yours,

Gabriel Quintero, DC
