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

saleh executive opt Dear Colleagues and Friends of Chiropractic, 

It is with great pride and honor that I was elected and accepted the presidency of FLAQ.

With deep satisfaction I have seen and participated in the growth of the profession and its acceptance by the various academic institutions as was the case in Mexico (UNEVE, UNEVT and Universidad Veracruzana), Brazil (FEEVALE, Anhembi-Morumbi) and Chile (UCEN). Under the tutelage of these universities, Chiropractic has become close to the people and occupies its community role in supporting social and individual health.

President’s Message:

Dear Colleagues and Friends of Chiropractic,

It is with great pride and honor that I was elected and accepted the presidency of FLAQ.

With deep satisfaction I have seen and participated in the growth of the profession and its acceptance by the various academic institutions as was the case in Mexico (UNEVE, UNEVT and Universidad Veracruzana), Brazil (FEEVALE, Anhembi-Morumbi) and Chile (UCEN). Under the tutelage of these universities, Chiropractic has become close to the people and occupies its community role in supporting social and individual health.

For these reasons, it is the job of each doctor to take their responsibility to approach Chiropractic and its users to treat spinal problems, but also to prevent its effects on the overall health. At the same time, we must maintain the standards of the profession that have led it to be unique and distinguished.

I therefore ask for the cooperation of all of you in Latin America to make Chiropractic take its place as the spinal health profession. Please accept my warmest greetings and gratitude to the Directors of the various countries, for their contribution in the development of this great undertaking.

Very truly yours, 

Sergio Saleh Muñoz, DC 

Presidente FLAQ
