Joining SCA


Why the Scottish Chiropractic Association?

The SCA has been the foremost chiropractic organisation in Scotland for 30 years.  Today, many members work beyond the Scottish borders, choosing the SCA for their inclusive and holistic chiropractic philosophy, lower insurance fees, and many member benefits.

As the Association continues to grow and adapt to the changing chiropractic environment in the U.K., membership with the SCA is more attractive than ever before.
