Thailandchiropractic Association


History of the Thailand Chiropractic Association

The first known Chiropractors to practice in Thailand arrived in the l980’s. They were soon forced to leave the country with the threat of arrest for practicing Medicine without a license. The first continuously running businesses offering Chiropractic opened in 1993. By 1998 there were 10 Chiropractors operating in registered businesses. While the Chiropractors working at that time were working with work permits and paying taxes, their status was still grey. While the Labor Department was issuing the work permits, The Ministry of Public Health had yet to recognize Chiropractic as a legal healthcare profession.
