Background

The Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics is one of the specialty departments of the International Chiropractors Association. It was established by the International Chiropractors Association in 1992 with the primary objective of providing  quality postgraduate education in chiropractic pediatrics so doctors of chiropractic who care for children and pregnant women have the opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills to provide care that is effective, safe, clinically appropriate and of a high professional standard.

The Council helps to maximize the professional needs of doctors of  chiropractic who want to learn more about pediatric care  or focus on pediatrics as a specialty, by providing a postgraduate program leading to Board Certification in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics, seminars, conferences and symposiums.  The Council also promotes and encourages credible research in this field by holding research symposiums and publishing the profession’s only open access pediatrics journal.

Through the development and dissemination of patient education materials, the Council endeavors to educate the public about the safety, efficacy and appropriateness of chiropractic care from infants to adolescents. Through its Membership Referral Directory the Council provides a valuable resource for parents or women looking for a chiropractor who is either Board Certified in Chiropractic Pediatrics, cares for pregnant women, or has a family practice.
