Chinese Canadian Chiropractic Society
The Chinese Canadian Chiropractic Society was established by a group of licensed chiropractors on May 7th, 2001. Over the last few years there has been an exponential growth in the number of chiropractors who are of Chinese/Asian nationalities, have recently graduated or are enrolling in chiropractic colleges throughout North America. As the number of Chinese chiropractors have increased so has the patient base of the Chinese population has increased. As there are no Chinese chiropractic societies, the CCCS was formed in the need of educating the Chinese population about chiropractic health care.
