CAAWA is the professional home of chiropractors and chiropractic students in Western Australia. The association is committed to promoting and serving a unified chiropractic profession.

CAAWA was established as the Australian Chiropractors' Association in July 1964 when six chiropractors met and adopted the proposed Constitution and rules. Registration of chiropractors occurred first in Western Australia with the assenting of the Chiropractors Act in November 1964.The CAA, as it is today, came into existence following an historic determination in September 1990 by the then two national organisations, the Australian Chiropractors' Association and the United Chiropractors Association of Australasia Ltd, to amalgamate.

CAAWA members are bound by a professional code of practice based on ethical principles. They respect, care about and are committed to their patients' wellbeing. You can have confidence in a CAA chiropractor.
