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,

"Enriching!
"It is the best way to describe the events that were part of this past month in the Celebration of World Chiropractic in Puerto Rico with our new friends from the World Federation of Chiropractic and the Latin American Federation of Chiropractic.

We had the opportunity to experience new cultures, beliefs, ideas and philosophies. We could see as chiropractic is growing all over the world, and how it will continue to grow.

Hope this is not the only global event here in Porto Rico.

I congratulate my executive who did an excellent job, of quality, of course you could not expect less.

We will continue doing what we like, put the name of Chiropractic and the Puerto Rico held high"!

These were Mayda Serranos´ words, Puerto Rico´s executive, talking about WFC and FLAQ meeting in her country.

We don´t have words to thank enough PR Chiropractic Association for its welcome and for the happiness and warm way we were treated.

We had FLAQ General Assembly as well, where PR´s membership was confirmed. Welcome to the new members.

FLAQ´s Executive Board was reelected, consolidating the continuity of the same group. Thanks to all of them for their help and for believing in our task.

We want to give a warm welcome to Dr. Gabriela Flores from Guatemala, who was appointed for treasurer, and to thank Dr. Pablo Martinez for his work and dedication during the past two years. Unhappily, Pablo can´t continue. Our deepest appreciation to him.

We know, at this moment of World Cup, our hearts are beating up strong for our own teams. Competition is very tight for Latin American teams if they make it for the final. But we are united because of chiropractic. Our goal still is the growth and expansion of our profession in our continent.

Thanks again for all your support and trust.

Very truly yours,

Gabriel Quintero, DC
