Pregnancy is a normal process, but one which puts additional loads on the mother’s spine. Both biomechanical and chemical changes have an effect on the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body. Chiropractic can be an effective form of care to ease the discomfort.
Toronto, February 1, 2005 – The Canadian Chiropractic Association (The CCA) today supported the Canada Health Council call for collaboration among health professionals to improve the efficiency of the health care system and help address shortages of health professionals.
By law, every province requires chiropractors to earn a license before they can practice. Graduating chiropractors must attain passing scores on national and provincial board exams administered by the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board (CCEB).
Chiropractic is a self-governing profession which means that doctors are bound to a professional code of conduct through national and provincial chiropractic associations, such as the British Columbia Chiropractors’ Association (BCCA).
This self-regulating and disciplinary process ensures that the public’s health concerns are the chiropractic profession’s highest priority.
