The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (JCCA) ISSN 0008-3194 (Print) and ISSN 1715-6181 (Online) is the official, peer reviewed, quarterly research publication of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA). Published since 1957 and searchable from 1986 on this site and from 1978 in PubMed, the JCCA publishes research papers, commentaries and editorials relevant to the practice of chiropractic.

The purpose of the JCCA is three-fold:

  2. To cultivate professional dialogue and awareness through the dissemination of information which is relevant to public policy, the health-care delivery system, and the practice of chiropractic in Canada and internationally.
  3. To enhance the continuing education of the practicing chiropractor.  Reports of new techniques or clinical methodologies are considered for publication.
