The mission of the IFCO is to support and advance the practice of chiropractic that is exclusive for the location, analysis, and correction of vertebral subluxation because vertebral subluxation, in and of itself, is a detriment to the fullest expression of life. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the future of chiropractic as a separate and distinct profession to secure and insure public access to vertebral subluxation correction. We shall accomplish this by uniting and supporting chiropractors and organizations who share the IFCO mission through professional, legislative, educational and personal growth endeavors.
Who is the IFCO?
The International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations is a national organization representing chiropractors and chiropractic affiliate organizations with a united voice for chiropractic principles.
What are the IFCO’s Objectives
The objectives of the Federation are: to assist chiropractors in any legal way that is practical; to promote, protect and advance chiropractic and to facilitate the public access to and knowledge of the services of chiropractic.
How does the IFCO Define Chiropractic?
Chiropractic: Chiropractic is a vitalistic philosophy, science, and art which consists solely of the non-therapeutic objective of locating, analyzing, and assisting in the correction of vertebral subluxations, because they are detrimental to the expression of innate intelligence.
The Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations (FSCO) is a national trade organization chartered in the state of Kansas in 1979 by a group of concerned chiropractors dedicated to promoting the ideals of straight chiropractic. In 1982, we relocated to the state of Georgia and registered to conduct business there. Our national office was located at 642 Broad St., in Clifton, NJ. From 1984 until 2001, when it moved to 2276 Wassergass Road, Hellertown, PA. The FSCO’s fundamental purpose was, and still is, to preserve the traditional principles of chiropractic, while representing the interests and concerns of straight chiropractors throughout the world. In May of 2011, the Board of Directors and an overwhelming majority of the membership voted to change the name of the FSCO to the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations (IFCO) to reflect the organizations new stance as an international trade organization. While the range of the organization’s reach was dramatically expanded, the mission of the FSCO/IFCO has remained the same.
