Chiropractic Healing Art Discipline
Chiropractic is a naturally based whole person healing art discipline of health care and not a modality of service or services.

Post graduate education may be sought in primary care such as pediatrics and family practice and specialty care such as neurology, nutrition, orthopedics, radiology, sports medicine and physical rehabilitation. The Connecticut chiropractic scope of practice authorizes chiropractic physicians to provide whole person diagnosis and management of the individual’s state of health without the use of drugs or surgery. Since the inception of the profession in 1895 and licensure in Connecticut in 1917, patients have utilized their chiropractic physician for their primary health care and specialty health care needs. The chiropractic profession espouses natural methods of health care and has demonstrated exceptional, safe and effective results for primary care and specialty care related conditions usually at costs less than medically provided care and often with better clinical outcomes. Patient satisfaction for chiropractic care is usually superior to other methods of care. Chiropractic physicians are qualified by training, state and federal law to provide physician level services including physical examinations, consultations, diagnostics, physical medicine, diet and nutrient services and products, preventive and wellness health care and the prescription and provision of durable medical good services and products.
