The mission of the Missouri Chiropractic Physicians Association is to advocate for Missouri's chiropractic profession for the health of the public we serve. It takes the support of all the chiropractors in Missouri to move this great profession forward.

The MCPA works diligently to provide its members with not only the benefits of free summer convention registration, patient referral, legal questions, insurance assistance, discounted seminar options, and more; but it works behind the scenes to improve the legislative and insurance climate in Missouri.

Important Message from the President

As part of this year's strategic planning initiative, the MSCA Board of Directors was tasked at reviewing all aspects of the association. This review not only reviewed the size of our board of directors and all of our policies and procedures, it also included and a review of our name and logo. At our October Board Meeting, the board voted to change both the name and logo to closer align our association to what has been listed on our chiropractic licenses for decades.

Starting January 1, 2018, the new name of the organization will be the Missouri Chiropractic Physicians Association. The name change will in no way change your current scope of practice or the focus of the association as a whole; it is simply a reflection of your existing licensure.
