JCR Chiropractor Registration

Eligibility for registration requires successful completion of an education program which meets the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and the passing of the JCR registration exam. The JCR makes available to the public the list of registrants and submits the list to the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) to assist the public in choosing chiropractors who meet safety requirements.
