Chiropractors in NZ
In New Zealand, chiropractors complete comprehensive statutory licensing exams and continuing education requirements. Chiropractors are trained to identify health conditions requiring medical follow up and are able to take and read x-rays.
Safe & Effective for Your Family
A landmark 1979 New Zealand Royal Commission of Inquiry ascertained that chiropractic care was extremely safe and effective for specific problems relating to the spine, joints and nerves and that the New Zealand public should have greatly widened access to chiropractic care.
Chiropractors and the Health System
Chiropractors have been accepted for ACC coverage for many years, but currently they have limited or no role in the public health and hospital system. This may reflect various historical, political and philosophical differences between the chiropractic and medical professions.
