The ACC Paradigm – Something We Can All Agree Upon?

In July 1996 the Presidents of all North American chiropractic colleges gathered together in an effort to develop a working paradigm for the chiropractic profession. The results of this meeting and a series of retreats were two position papers–one titled: ACC Chiropractic Paradigm and another on chiropractic scope and practice titled: ACC Scope and Practice. Since that time these statements and the Paradigm as a whole have been widely circulated within and outside the profession.

At the time of this writing nearly all major national and international chiropractic organizations have adopted and/or endorsed the statement including:

  • The World Chiropractic Alliance
  • The Council on Chiropractic Practice
  • The International Chiropractors Association
  • The American Chiropractic Association
  • The Congress of Chiropractic State Associations
  • The National Association of Chiropractic Attorneys
  • The World Federation of Chiropractic
