CyCA Professional Statement
chiropractic association (CyCA) is committed to the highest levels of excellence
in chiropractic education, patient care, standards of practice and continuing
Chiropractic is a primary contact healthcare profession, with its own distinct holistic principles and practice, specialising in the art of manipulation of the joints, largely by hand alone, with a view to normalising neuro-musculo-skeletal function as it relates to the spine and to patients' health.
Chiropractors use neither drugs nor surgery, but refer to relevant specialists where appropriate. They are regulated by law, and practise autonomously within the healthcare community, promoting co-operative relationships with other healthcare professionals, both within and outside of the healthcare system, for the benefit of the patient.
Chiropractic scope is not defined by law. The Cyprus chiropractic association is committed to ensuring that this clinical freedom is retained within the parameters of good practice.
