Welcome to the European Chiropractors’ Union

There are around 6000 chiropractors in Europe providing millions of treatments to European citizens every year. Chiropractic is best known for treating back and neck pain, but in fact chiropractors successfully treat a wide range of other health conditions.

The ECU represents the national associations of 23 European nations, promoting the health benefits of chiropractic, high standards of education and excellence in conduct and practice. The ECU also represents the interests of the profession at a European level, advocating the inclusion of chiropractic within health policies and health programmes.

The ECU’s affairs are directed by a General Council, comprising representatives of each of its national association members. Its day-to-day activities are co-ordinated by an Executive Council, consisting a President, Vice-President and Treasurer. A secretariat, based in London, administers the ECU and executes the decisions of the General Council.

We hope that you find this website informative and useful. For further information, please contact the ECU on +44 (0)208 977 2206.


As many of you are probably aware, the return of Denmark to the ECU has made it possible to form a new research institute, the European Centre for Chiropractic Research Excellence (ECCRE). We are currently in a transition phase and are drafting new documents, including the application for new grants. We hope to complete this as soon as possible; however, it is important that you are aware of the next call for applications, which will be August 5th.
For more information, please contact the Chairman of the ECU Research Council, Sidney Rubinstein, s.m.rubinstein@vu.nl.


Over 500 Chiropractors joined us for our convention at the Thon Arena Hotel Lillestrøm, Norway.  To see pictures of what was a great event have a look at our facebook page. ECU Convention Facebook
