UNBELIEVABLE FACTS ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC PRACTICE IN
Chiropractic practice is not legislated in Japan, and there are many practitioners practicing chiropractic without enough or with hardly any educational background or professional training. Actually anybody can open a practice in Japan today. It is totally your own responsibility to select to whom you go.
There are about 60 legitimate doctors of Chiropractic who graduated from U. S. chiropractic colleges and about 15,000 practitioners in Japan without formal chiropractic education.
THE MOVEMENT TO ESTABLISH A GOVERNMENT
AUTHORIZED CHIROPRACTIC FOUNDATION IN JAPAN
The Chiropractic Federation of Japan(CFJ) is a coalition of the major chiropractic associations in Japan. It is the only chiropractic association established under the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan. It has about 2,500 members including mostly DCs(foreign trained Doctors of Chiropractic) and non-DC chiropractors in Japan.
The CFJ has submitted an application to the Japanese government for the establishment of the Chiropractic Research Foundation of Japan(tentative name). All the required documents have been submitted and all other necessary procedures have been taken care for the Foundation. The government is now on the process of assessing the application.
We now are facing the chance of lifetime to gain recognition by the Japanese government. However, Some people in our profession are trying everything they can to stop the Foundation being authorized by the Japanese government in order to protect their own benefits. We need to look back at our original goal which was to get sick people well.
The establishment of the Foundation is a prior step toward legislation of chiropractic in Japan. It is the only possible way to introduce a professional standard for the practitioners in Japan and for educational institutions. We have to have some government authority to introduce standards for practitioners and schools, without this it is practically of no use. It is almost the only way to protect the safety of the people in Japan.
