My favorite thing about ACA is that it’s a consistently developing organization seeking to enhance the chiropractic profession.
Without ACA, my view of patient care and the profession as whole would be completely different. I’d be a little isolated in practice and have less ideas about diversity, the ethics of my care, and how it affects my community.
No other group advocates for both patient rights and physicians the way ACA does, while sticking to the most up-to-date evidence-informed guidelines. I couldn’t be more proud to be an ACA member.
One of the most important ways ACA facilitates growth is by providing a networking opportunity for DCs and students. It’s awesome to connect with other providers on topics of interest, collaborate on projects, and share insight on best practices.
I’ve met so many mentors. It’s led to job opportunities, it’s led to leadership opportunities, and I’ve grown more than I ever thought was possible. And it’s all because of ACA.
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the largest professional chiropractic organization in the United States, represents the most principled and accomplished chiropractors, who understand that it takes more to be called an ACA chiropractor.
