  • WFC Reading List

    The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has released a list of recommended items for chiropractors who want to stay reasonably updated on the latest knowledge, but little time to make major literature searches themselves.


    The list is divided into over 20 subjects in which renowned scientists have selected a number of commendable articles.

  • WFC publishes reading list for chiropractors

    WFC, World Federation of Chiropractic, has today published a list of suggested reading for everyone in the chiropractic profession.


    The list is a database that brings together a number of relevant research articles in one place, which gives chiropractors an easy and clear access to the different articles, which are grouped into 21 topic areas on the reading list.


    The project is led by Dr. Greg Kawchuk from the University of Alberta, who is chairman of WFC Research Council, and who is currently a visiting scientist at NIKKB.


    “This is just the beginning of this project,” explains Dr Kawchuk.  “We are already working on round two which will add new topic areas such as nutrition and public health.
