About the Journal
The Chiropractic Journal was started in 1986 in response to a widespread demand for a professionally edited newspaper which would present news and features of interest to all segments of the chiropractic profession.
At that time, chiropractic was at a crossroads.
One path led to chiropractic duplicating medical diagnostic procedures, and limiting chiropractic as merely another medical "therapy" used to treat musculo-skeletal symptoms or diseases.
The other path led chiropractic into a unique paradigm as a subluxation-based health care field focused on the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation (nerve interference) for lifetime family wellness care.
The Chiropractic Journal was the first chiropractic newspaper to openly serve as an advocate for subluxation-based chiropractic while maintaining high journalistic standards. It employed experienced journalists to report news in an unbiased and accurate manner and welcomed input from all perspectives. It immediately won the respect of a large portion of the profession.
Today, most chiropractors have chosen the path away from disease and towards health, informing consumers to choose chiropractic first, before drugs or surgery. They have chosen to follow the same path as The Chiropractic Journal -- and the Journal has become an important companion on their journey.
The three-fold mission of The Chiropractic Journal has not changed since it was founded:
- To provide accurate, up-to-date and well-written reports of current events and issues;
- To offer an open forum for the opinions of all members of the profession;
- To be an advocate for subluxation-based chiropractic and chiropractors, without sacrificing journalistic integrity.
