These words are only true of the cases treated by skilled chiropractor. At present, there is no legal basis for Chiropractic or Chropractors in Japan. And many wicked chiropractic schools or immature chiropractors can do their business with impunity in Japan. Actually, immature chiropractors are occupying an overwhelming majority in Japan, then this page will offer guidelines leading you to avoid mistakes by these low level chiropractors or by vicious quackeries. Next, this page offers you accurate information about chiropractic(especially in Japan).

In Japan, there are many schools of chiropractic and schools of spinal manipulation advertising that anyone can master techniques in a short term. The graduates of these schools may cause a serious mistake or a severe injury, and people must pay attention for such quackeries particulary in Japan.

Don't be deceived by attractive advertisements or showy signs of any chiropractic clinic or any chiropractic school for the patients as well as persons who are trying to study chiropractic in the future.

The unskilled chiropractor would like to put up a showy sign!
