Here is a very interesting article that was written in 2013 that discusses the future pathways of Chiropractic leading up to 2025. The following information was provided in the Acknowledgements section.
This Chiropractic 2025 scenario report is the third in a series of chiropractic futures reports by the Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF) and funded by the NCMIC Foundation. We would like to acknowledge their support, as well as the personal support, insight, and advice from NCMIC’s President, Dr. Louis Sportelli. IAF would like to thank the leading and innovative chiropractic practitioners, educators, researchers, and other experts whom we interviewed for this project, and who are listed in Appendix 1. While these experts provided extensive input, IAF takes full responsibility for the content of this report. The IAF team that produced this report was led by Clement Bezold and included Trevor Thompson, Yasemin Arikan, and Marguerite Grandjean. Special thanks to Jonathan Peck for his help and support in developing thescenarios and to Mary Presswood for her logistical and production assistance.
I would encourage you to read this in its entirety, it give a well thought out look at the future of chiropractic and is particularly important since 2025 is now only 4 years away. My take on this is that in some cases ALL these scenarios are taking place at the same time for different doctors of chiropractic. This puts in the HAVES and HAVE NOTS area which is what I have been saying for the last 10 years. You can have a million dollar + practice OR you can work as a technician for the JOINT. That is up to you, however we need to be educated as to WHY this is happening. That will give you the empowerment to make an educated choice on where you want to be now and in the future.
