The Briefest History


In early 1995, in the days before the Internet became a vehicle for commerce, a few Chiropractors decided to create an Internet site where Chiropractors would work toward providing the best information and communication possible for the Chiropractic profession. What was created was this non-partisan internet site that is both "for" Chiropractors and maintained "by" Chiropractors.


From the start, everyone here has worked without thought of remuneration. This site is considered our gift to the profession. At first, all expenses were paid by donations from our unpaid workers. But when our site became popular and internet costs rose, we decided to add a few sponsors to defray the costs we were incurring. The sponsor's ad fees defray our site expenses only.

History of Some Projects
Our web site is sectioned into projects with Chiropractors volunteering to be responsible for the information in each section. We are always in the middle of starting new projects and increasing the size of others. Please bear with us when changes are being made. Better yet, please join us!

Here is a history of a few of our sections.



ChiroZine
Before our Blog evolved, this was one of our most popular sections. It started out as a section focusing on political issues. It slowly evolved into an electronic newspaper-magazine. It is updated frequently and has a wealth of news and commentaries. The purely political focus of this section is now a memory.

Forms
The forms section has been with us since the beginning and continues to grow. We have forms on almost every topic. After the number of forms grew, we started woking on "real time" report generators for your use. Our next step will be to have repeat visitors not have to re-enter their basic information.

LINKS
One of our most popular sections, the LINKS first began by giving us access to various link categories arranged by topic, then expanded into current news, articles, and chiropractic research. It's growth, both in size and use has been phenomenal. In 2001, its creator began developing new sections at Chiro.Org, based on some of the more popular information located in the LINKS

Images
Our Graphics and Images section has Chiropractic graphics and places to get more health-care related images. Images have been contributed from various sources. This section continues to grow.

Research Journals
Our Journal Archive provides article summaries to journals of interest to Chiropractors. When first begun, there were full abstracts from Spine. With the changes to the Internet, we now have a page of great journal links.

Pediatrics
This section contains articles supporting the benefits of chiropractic care for children and women during pregnancy. This section contains an in-depth section on ADD/ADHD, pediatric articles of interest, and links to the national pediatric associations.

Chiropractic Assistants
This section contains many useful articles on issues like billing and coding, patient education, practice management, and personal growth.

New Chiropractors Section
The New DC section has been with us since the beginning. This page is dedicated to providing the information the new practitioner needs to begin, maintain and run a smooth, productive office. Seasoned DC's may also find this information useful.

Chiropractic Case Studies
This section is designed to encourage Chiropractors in the field to present case studies to their colleagues. It also includes a broad collection of Case Studies from peer-reviewed journals.

Documentation
This section is devoted to a full description of what is considered “complete” patient file documentation by National Associations and Third party Payors.

Chiropractic Abstracts
This is another great section that has been with us for years and continues to grow. It features abstracts pertaining to Chiropractic Practice, arranged according to topic.

Chiropractic Research
This section includes research articles, abstracts, and information pertaining to the growing body of Chiropractic Research.

Nutrition
This section provides non-solicitous nutrition information, including articles of interest, citations regarding the benefits of various vitamins, minerals and herbals, and links to other sites of value.

Acupuncture
This section contains information about acupuncture, meridians, ryodoraku, and a host of information relating to this ancient analysis technique.

RC Schafer
This section contains 28 rehabilitation monographs donated to Chiro.Org by R. C. Schafer, DC, PhD, FICC, the most-published chiropractic author.

Alternative Medicine Abstracts
This is an extensive collection of peer-reviewed articles on alternative or complementary forms of health care.

The Chiropractic History Section
Joseph C. Keating, Jr., Ph.D generously donated this massive archive of historical documents to the profession.

Radiology Section
This section offers an x-ray report generator, KvP chart, and a Positioning Guide, as well as access to a variety of articles on radiography and diagnosis.
