Who We Are
Who is the IFCO?
The International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations is an international organization of chiropractors, students and others who support the practice of chiropractic for the purpose of correcting vertebral subluxations because subluxations, in and of themselves, are a detriment to the fullest expression of life in all people at all times.
What are the IFCO’s Objectives
The objectives of the Federation are to promote, protect and advance chiropractic, to assist chiropractors in any legal way that is practical, and advance chiropractic and to facilitate the public access to and knowledge of the services of chiropractic.
How does the IFCO Define Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a vitalistic philosophy, science, and art which consists solely of the non-therapeutic objective of locating, analyzing, and assisting in the correction of vertebral subluxations, because they are detrimental to the expression of innate intelligence.
How does the IFCO Define Vertebral Subluxation?
A vertebral subluxation is an alteration of the intervertebral relationships of one or more articulations of the spinal column or the immediate weight bearing components of the axial skeleton; accompanied by a change in the morphology of the tissue occupying the neural canal and/or intervertebral foramina; as well as an alteration of neural function sufficient to interfere with the transmission of organizing information, considered to be homologous to the mental impulse.
