The health care professions are in a period of rapid change, and chiropractic, because it is a relatively young profession, is experiencing change at an even more rapid pace. The changes in the chiropractic profession will be dictated in large measure by the effects of future research, managed care and the professional relationship established between the chiropractic profession and other health care professions. In this article, these effects are discussed by reviewing the past history of chiropractic, the present status and future implications.
