Who is the IFCO?

The International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations (iFCO) is an international organization of chiropractors, students and others who support the practice of chiropractic for the purpose of correcting vertebral subluxations because subluxations, in and of themselves, are a detriment to the fullest expression of life in all people at all times. 

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 – PERIOD.

IFCO’s History

The Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations (FSCO) was 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 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 Chiopractors 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.
