Jan 26, Toronto, Ont. – The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC)
and the Chiropractic Association of South Africa (CASA) cordially invite
Canadian DCs to join colleagues, educators and friends from around the world at
the WFC’s 12th Biennial Congress to be held at the International
Convention Centre in Durban,
South Africa,
April 10-13, 2013.

Have you
ever experienced the quality and excitement of a WFC Congress?  Have you ever experienced South Africa,
its game parks and other natural wonders?


This is
your opportunity to do both at once.  The
academic program is now confirmed and includes:

  • ·        
    of evidence-based care, technique, nutrition and exercise, philosophy and
    chiropractors as spinal care experts;
  • ·        
    on doctors of chiropractic as primary spine care experts such as Scott
    Haldemann DC, MD, PhD, (the opportunities and challenges), Ian Paskowski, DC (a
    case sample from Massachusettes), Jan Hartvigson DC, PhD (why and how
    chiropractors in Denmark are increasingly accepted in this role) and Robert
    Gunzburg, MD PhD, Assistant Editor-in-Chief, European Spine Journal (the
    perspective of a European spine surgeon.);
  • ·        
    clinical and technique workshops and optional one- and two-day pre-congress
    seminars. Presenters include Lindsay Rowe (imaging), Joyce Miller (pediatrics),
    Mark Charrette (extremity adjusting) Christopher Colloca (instrument adjusting)
    Brian Nook (side posture adjusting for all sizes) and more. 

Durban, a cosmopolitan city of four million on one of the most beautiful
beaches in South Africa,
offers world class dining and entertainment. 
The International Convention Centre, site of the Congress and the recent
World Climate Conference, is a state-of-the-art conference facility.  An outstanding social program will include a
complimentary beach party sponsored by the City of Durban, an African theme night on Friday and
the WFC’s Silver Anniversary Banquet and Dance on Saturday.  Many delegates will want to go on safari and
tour game parks before or after the Congress.

Plan to
join the WFC in April 2013!  The WFC asks
you to contact friends and colleagues and ask them to join you in this
celebration of chiropractic!  For more
