WFC 10th Biennial Congress


April 30 - May 2, 2009

WFC 10th Biennial Congress, a spectacular event in 2007 in Portugal, is not to be missed by those serious about where Chiropractic is going in world health politics.

Combined with the ECU congress it was undoubtedly the finest congress I have ever attended.

In 2009 the congress will be co-sponsored by FCER International Conference on Chiropractic Research and the Canadian Chiropractic Association.

Celebrating Chiropractic in the 21st Century

Looking at the list of speakers, one thing strikes one immediately. Whilst some may be desperately unhappy, to both left- and right-wing of healthcare, Chiropractic is being incorporated into mainline medicine. The list of top medical practitioners who are willing to come and lecture on a Chiropractic podium must be very disturbing to those of the pre-Wilkes days.

Or, to put it the other way round: Medicine is being incorporated into Chiropractic. And it's probably very disturbing to some Chiropractors too.

Some will be saying:

"The only problem with progress is that it goes forwards instead of backwards."
