Clinical Guidelines for Chiropractic Practice in Canada
The use of professional title is governed by law and individual preference, and varies according to jurisdiction. The most common titles used for the general practice of chiropractic in Canada are 'chiropractor', and 'doctor of chiropractic'. Both of these titles are used in this document.
Specialties exist in chiropractic, in areas such as clinical science, radiology, and sports chiropractic. Specialist practitioners are given their common and usual titles (e.g. chiropractic radiologist).
