American Chiropractic Association > News & Publications > Publications


As a professional association, ACA works closely with its members to offer publications and other resources related to all aspects of the chiropractic profession. The publications we produce or endorse help enhance the profession's image and inform doctors of chiropractic about developments in health care as well as the latest scientific, legislative and insurance-related information affecting their practices.


ACA Connects

ACA Connects, a weekly member-only e-newsletter, brings doctors of chiropractic the latest information, tools and resources that ACA has to offer. Readers are able to find opportunities to engage and to connect with the association in various ways through education, specialty groups, volunteerism and much more. Every Friday, members also receive ACA Connects+, which features one item from ACA Connects (the most popular content from the week) or information about one of ACA's valuable member benefits.

ACA Blogs

ACA Blogs provides readers with information to help them advance their knowledge, achieve their professional goals and strive for excellence, while also creating a greater sense of community among chiropractors nationwide through online engagement and information-sharing with their colleagues.

Hands Down Better (Consumer Information)
