Dear Pennsylvania Chiropractor:
The Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania (CFoP) has represented chiropractors and the chiropractic profession in Pennsylvania over the past forty years. We are Headquartered in Harrisburg with a full-time administrative staff and lobbyist.
The fellowship exists to support and protect the rights of all chiropractors in Pennsylvania, especially those who are straight/philosophically based.
Fellowship members have many types of practices from cash to insurance, various office procedures and different techniques. What unites us is not what is in our office, but what is in our hearts. We stand firm on the belief that everyone should have access to chiropractic care for the correction of vertebral subluxation.
Bear in mind that your right to practice and the way you practice chiropractic is a privilege granted by the state of Pennsylvania. The fellowship was there to protect the privilege of Sherman and Penn graduates to practice in Pennsylvania. When the chiropractic law was changed we were there to protect your privilege to take care of children without an MD’s referral. Our lobbyist in Harrisburg will continue to be our watchdog in the legislature and at meetings of the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners as he has over the past twenty years. We will continue to be diligent in our efforts to have philosophically sound chiropractors on the State Board. We must protect:
- The privilege to see patients without an MD referral.
- The ability to adjust patients without a medical diagnosis.
- A patients choice to access chiropractic care solely for the correction of vertebral subluxation.
- The ability to practice using our own procedures and techniques.
- Family care and family plans.
- Fair and equitable insurance reimbursement.
Protecting these privileges comes with a price. While some of us are willing to contribute our time and energy, we ask only for your membership and financial support. We do welcome any help you offer.
Many of us individually support chiropractic in our office every day and experience the miracles nature unfolds through chiropractic care. We cannot afford to risk all chiropractic has to offer by letting others determine its fate. We cannot watch on the sidelines as it slowly turns into a profession of 12 visits for low back pain as a standard. We have many chiropractors in this state, but we must be heard. It is now time for us to unite and protect chiropractic in the state of Pennsylvania and guide its future. Send your completed application to the fellowship today. Join us now to control not only our future but also our children’s future.
Yours in Chiropractic,
Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania
