New Mexico Board of Chiropractic Examiners

The New Mexico Board of Chiropractic upholds the highest standards for governing the licensed practice of chiropractic care within the state. All practicing chiropractors must meet rigorous criteria, including graduating from a chiropractic college accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education and passing examinations administered by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. The Board diligently oversees continuing chiropractic education and disciplinary matters to ensure compliance with the New Mexico Chiropractic Physicians Practice Act and associated regulations. Headquartered in Santa Fe, the Board’s licensed chiropractors provide health maintenance and restorative services through methods taught in accredited chiropractic doctorate programs and Board-recognized postgraduate courses. Importantly, chiropractic care excludes performing surgery or prescribing controlled or dangerous substances. The New Mexico Board of Chiropractic remains dedicated to promoting exceptional chiropractic care and protecting public well-being through regulatory oversight of the profession.

Chiropractors licensed in the state can get answers to all of their licensing and continuing education questions directly from the Board. Contact information for the Chiropractic Board can be found at this link.

Chiropractic Associations in New Mexico

Representing New Mexico’s chiropractic physicians, the Albuquerque-headquartered New Mexico Chiropractic Association (NMCA) pursues multiple objectives to progress the field and improve patient access to care. The NMCA actively develops innovative recruitment strategies aimed at attracting chiropractors to establish practices in underserved rural communities throughout the state. Additionally, the organization focuses on integrating chiropractors into the wider healthcare delivery system by promoting collaboration with other medical providers. This facilitates increased patient contact and care coordination opportunities. Through ongoing educational offerings and scope of practice initiatives, the NMCA empowers chiropractors to meet pressing healthcare needs. Furthermore, by elevating representation in healthcare policy groups, the NMCA influences resource allocation and legislation to benefit chiropractic medicine. With patient-centered access, provider integration, education, and policy advocacy at the forefront, the NMCA remains dedicated to advancing chiropractic care for New Mexico’s providers and public.

The Alliance of New Mexico Chiropractors (ANMC) was formed to represent chiropractors practicing subluxation-based care and advocating for chiropractic to remain a pharmaceutical-free profession. The ANMC upholds chiropractic’s roots as the largest drug-free healthcare system focused on restoring health and function through correcting subluxations.

The organization celebrates diverse chiropractic practices, embracing various modalities, provided they address subluxation correction and oppose incorporating pharmaceuticals. ANMC operates transparently, sharing bylaws and meeting minutes publicly. Its continuing education prioritizes chiropractic adjusting techniques, philosophy, science, and art.
