CORONAVIRUS: Advice for Chiropractors

March 26, 2020

PDF version

On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). As at March 26, 2020, there have been over 416,000 confirmed cases in 197 countries, areas or territories. There are currently over 18,500 confirmed deaths. Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals and to protect themselves, their patients and their communities they must stay current with the latest scientific evidence, information and advice. In many countries around the world chiropractors have ceased providing direct, hands-on care to patients in response to governmental or health policy advice. The global situation regarding COVID-19 is evolving daily and advice may change over time pending developments and emerging scientific knowledge. This advice note is current as of March 26, 2020 and has been produced with advice and guidance from the WFC Research Committee and WFC Public Health Committee.

Key messages
1. The WFC acknowledges the service of chiropractors around the world in contributing to the health of nations. We recognize that this is a challenging time and that we are in unprecedented territory with regard to the global outbreak and spread of COVID-19. As a worldwide community, the WFC understands that there are many questions being asked of chiropractors and that the situation varies from country to country. In order to support the global efforts of our fellow health professionals it is of critical importance that chiropractors communicate information to their patients and communities that is scientifically accurate and comes from authoritative sources.
