Abstract/Notes

Chiropractic’s demise was regularly predicted but the AMA’s campaign to “contain and then eliminate” it did not succeed. Nor did chiropractic follow osteopathy toward fusion with medicine.

Chiropractic’s unique evolution and survival owed a lot to BJ’s activity in publishing books and brochures and in part, to motivating his followers to fight for separate and distinct licensure. This paper proposes that in the twenty-first century chiropractic is most likely to become well established as an independent limited medical profession like dentistry, podiatry, optometry, and psychology.
