The Association of New Jersey Chiropractors online directory was created to help users make informed decisions about chiropractic care in New Jersey. It lists over 1400 chiropractors[1] in the state of New Jersey for easy reference. The directory also contains several general articles about chiropractic, links to public health initiatives such as the 'Straighten Up New Jersey' campaign, offers a monthly chiropractic newsletter, as well as lists the licensing requirements for New Jersey chiropractors.

History

The McClave Act was passed in 1939, and established uniform license requirements for anyone in New Jersey wishing to practice the 'healing arts'. In 1953, the law was updated, and chiropractors were then allowed to apply for licensure before an examining board consisting mostly of medical doctors and a single chiropractor.

Over the next 30 years, New Jersey licensure laws continued to evolve with increasing educational and training requirements for chiropractors that were more in step with the national accreditation given to chiropractic colleges.

The passage of the Chiropractic Board Act in 1989 instituted the New Jersey Board of Chiropractic Examiners, an oversight board for regulating all practicing chiropractors in New Jersey. The Board was created within the Division of Consumer Affairs and regulates the chiropractic profession.

New Jersey Board of Chiropractic Examiners

The New Jersey Board of Chiropractic Examiners consists of eleven members who reside in New Jersey. One member represents the New Jersey State Executive, two members are laypersons representing the public and the remaining eight members are licensed chiropractors who have actively practiced chiropractic in New Jersey for at least five years preceding their appointment to the Board.
