Practice Analysis of Chiropractic
The Practice Analysis of Chiropractic 2015 is a report that summarizes the practice of chiropractic in the United States based on the responses of full-time chiropractors from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Survey respondents reported information regarding their practices and professional responsibilities, then rated the level of risk to a patient’s health or safety when specific professional functions were poorly performed or omitted. This report also includes a summary of chiropractic research from around the world and data from previous surveys conducted in 1991, 1998, 2003, and 2009.
The practice analysis reports are used extensively to inform and educate state licensing boards, associations, legislators, and insurance companies on the practice patterns of full-time chiropractors. Additionally, the reports are used by educators throughout the profession and by the NBCE in the development of the NBCE Part III written and Part IV practical examinations.
