About the members of JSCA
The members of JSCA are well trained as upper cervical chiropractic specialists. Members of our Association hold an official Degree of Acupuncture and moxibustion, Acupressure, Repositioning of bones using Judo techniques (degree obtained from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan). So our members have a basic knowledge and expertise of the above sciences. However, of course, we practice only Upper Cervical Chiropractic.
In order to become Upper Cervical Specialists, our members are trained at the Japan Specific Chiropractic School in Tokyo for 400 hours under Dr. Fumio Kaku.
Dr. Kaku is known all over Japan in the chiropractic profession as the first person who published a book on the philosophy, science and art of Upper Cervical Chiropractic, other books on patient education as well as the translation of four of B. J. Palmer’s green books, As A Man Thinketh Vol.28,1952, Chiropractic Philosophy Science And Art Vol.32,1955, History In The Making Vol.35,1957 and Our Masterpiece Vol.39,1961.Dr.Kaku studied at Shiokawa School of Chiropractic in Tokyo, graduated on 1981, which is well known as the top school for the teaching of the Palmer Method by Palmer graduates. Since then he has been trained for over 30 years in the field of Upper Cervical Chiropractic under a continuing education program attending lectures from Dr. Thom Gelardi, founder of Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic; Dr. Stephen A. Duff. Sr., founder of Duff’s V’s of Base Posterior X-Ray analysis and pattern analysis who passed away 1989, educator and practitioner of Specific Upper Cervical Chiropractic; Dr. E. L. Crowder.Ph.C. who passed away 2002.
Actual and ex-members of our Association total 25 people（2013 currently). We are the smallest organization of the Chiropractic profession in Japan, but we are very proud of expressing our Straight Chiropractic and keeping tradition with philosophy, science and art. Because our ex-members do not meet the requirements of the association fully, we do not publish information about their offices in our website. The Chiropractic Offices introduced in this website are conform to our policies and teachings of Upper Cervical Chiropractic and we strongly recommend all of them.
