21 Jan 1971

CASA is formed out of the amalgamation of the two previously existing chiropractic associations.


The outcome is Act 76 of 1971, better known as the Chiropractors Act. The Act granted recognition to qualified chiropractors already practising in South Africa, as well as to South Africans studying to become chiropractors, but it also effectively freezes the profession by not allowing any further chiropractors to register and practice in South Africa.
