Chiropractic Corporation Law and Legal Definition

Chiropractic is a system of diagnosis and treatment that is based upon the concept that the nervous system coordinates all of the body's functions and holds that disease results from a lack of normal nerve function. A chiropractic corporation is a corporation rendering professional services as chiropractors.

Following is an example of a state statute defining the term:

A chiropractic corporation is a corporation which is registered with the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners with reference to corporations rendering professional services as chiropractors and has a currently effective certificate of registration from the board pursuant to the Professional Corporation Act, as contained in Part 4 (commencing with Section 13400) of Division 3 of Title 1 of the Corporations Code, and this article. Subject to all applicable statutes, rules and regulations, such chiropractic corporation is entitled to practice chiropractic. With respect to a chiropractic corporation, the governmental agency referred to in the Professional Corporation Act is the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners with reference to corporations rendering professional services as chiropractors. As used in this article, the "board" refers to the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. [Cal Bus & Prof Code § 1050]
