We dont have many real qualified chiropractors here in Poland like you have in Canada, Denmark, USA, England , Australia, France , Italy, Switzerland or other western european countries, which have completed university or college studies with their degree in chiropractic.
Poland presently does not regulate the profession of chiropractic , and anyone can use the term chiropractic or advertise chiropractic services even if they do not hold a degree from an internationally recognized university or college .
So if you are visiting from the USA , Canada , Australia , New Zealand , or most western european countries, and wish find a chiropractor with the same qualifications as in your home country, go visit the ECU - European Chiropractic Unions web site where you can find contacts for the country you plan to visit.

Chiropractic is a profession ( not a technique ) and requires a professional education just as medical doctors, dentists or other professions that require completion from an accredited college or university program.
A chiropractor is someone who has completed a full time 5 to 7 year private or public university / college program and obtained their chiropractic diploma as well as completing one year of supervised practice or internship.
In majority of countries where chiropractic is recognized or regulated can a therapist attend a part time course and say they are a chiropractor ? NO
In majority of countries where the practice of medicine is regulated can a therapist or dentist take a part time course and say they are a medical doctor ? NO
