Durban, South Africa to Host WFC's Silver Anniversary Congress

It is now less than 12 months until the World Federation of Chiropractic convenes its Silver Anniversary Congress at the International Convention Centre in beautiful Durban, South Africa April 10-13, 2013.

"Titled Chiropractic Under the African Sun, this Congress celebrates the first 25 years of the WFC," said WFC President Dr. Mike Flynn. "And over and above our usual outstanding academic and social program, there will be special events attended by prominent leaders in the profession worldwide."

A new official history of the WFC and the rise of the profession since the late 1980s, authored by Dr. Reed Phillips, will be launched in Durban. In addition, WFC Past President Dr. Louis Sportelli and WFC Secretary-General David Chapman-Smith give keynote addresses on the global profession and where it is going.

In one of the sessions, delegates will hear from pioneering African chiropractors from countries such as Botswana, the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana and Zimbabwe. Dynamic Chiropractic and Back Talk Systems have generously sponsored the attendance of several of these DCs.

"One reason that a group of us from Brazil are registering now," said Dr. Juliana Piva from São Paulo, "is that we don't want to miss out on the bargain pre-Congress seminars, which were sold out early and such a success at the Rio Congress last year."

There are excellent discounted one- and two-day pre-Congress seminars by leading clinicians such as Dr. Lindsay Rowe (Australia – imaging), Dr. Joyce Miller (UK – pediatrics), Dr. Chris Colloca (U.S. – instrument adjusting), Dr Tom Hyde (U.S - FAKTR), Dr. Kevin Jardine (Canada – taping and rehabilitation) and Dr. Craig Morris (U.S. – ProGolf workshop).

Social events include a Thursday African Night, a Friday Welcome Beach Party sponsored and hosted by the City of Durban, and the WFC's Silver Anniversary Banquet and Dance on Saturday, with South Africa's sensational all-girl Sterling EQ electric quartet as featured entertainment.

This is your chance of a lifetime to travel to South Africa to combine a historic chiropractic meeting with some touring of the country's majestic scenery and game parks. Registration is now open; for more information visit
