The North Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners was established May 5, 1917 by the General Assembly (G.S 90-139) to properly regulate doctors of chiropractic for the benefit and protection of the people of North Carolina. The North Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners also regulates and certifies Chiropractic Clinical Assistants (G.S. 90-143.4) and Diagnostic Imagining (X-Ray) Technicians (G.S. 90-143.2).
The practice of chiropractic is a privilege granted by the State of North Carolina. The North Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners, through diligent oversight, will license, monitor, discipline and educate practitioners to assure their fitness and competence in serving the people of North Carolina. In fulfilling its mission, the Board will play a leading role in the ever-changing health care environment through dialogue with the public, the legislature, academia and the chiropractic community.
