* Chiropractic, recognised by the World Health Organisation, is a separate and distinct profession. A Doctor of Chiropractic qualification is not a medical or dental qualification.
** The Chiropractic Association (Singapore) strives to maintain the highest standards of professionalism of the chiropractic profession in Singapore. As the chiropractic profession is still a self-regulating profession here, it maintains the only professional register of qualified chiropractors. A code of ethics, practice guidelines and a code of advertising have been adopted. Professional Membership in the Association therefore assures members of the public that their chiropractor is trained to the internationally recognized education standard, and agrees to practice within the association’s code of ethics, practice and advertising.
*** The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system and facilitates biomechanical balance in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. This has been shown to reduce the effects of intrauterine constraint in pregnant women, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
