Every August, thousands of chiropractors, CCPAs, CAs, LMTs and other industry professionals gather in Orlando, Florida, for the largest event in chiropractic.
Walt Disney World is down the street, but this is Chiro World, aka “The National,” held by the Florida Chiropractic Association. With the greatest range of CE options and biggest vendor exposition, attendees can find everything they need in one conference.
The National has steadily become the premier meeting place to connect with the chiropractic community. With more than 3,000 attendees and 2,000 vendor representatives, the size of the convention can seem overwhelming. But the environment is far from that, offering an infectious energy that spreads among all attendees. The synergy of industry and education creates a motivating and inspiring atmosphere.
This year, The National will focus on relevant issues and solutions in the industry with 75 distinguished panelists and speakers. Attendees can choose from intimate breakout sessions and small classes to group panels and discussion. Key topics include:
- The Opioid Crisis and How Chiropractic Can Help.
