Abstract: Objective -To summarize the key findings of the 2021 Survey of the Hong Kong Chiropractic Profession given to Hong Kong chiropractors and compare them to the practice patterns seen in similar local and international studies.
Method: A 52-question survey was conducted online, and access was provided via an email, Facebook, or WhatsApp invitation. The survey was sent to all registered chiropractors in Hong Kong and those on the database at the Chiropractic Doctors Association of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Chiropractic Association, and China Hong Kong Macau Chiropractic Association. The questions were divided into sections into the following areas: information about the typical chiropractic practitioner, chiropractic practice management, chiropractor beliefs, and chiropractor clinical management.
Summary: 80 chiropractors responded to the survey. The results indicate that the typical chiropractor in Hong Kong has a monthly income of $150,000-$300,000 HKD (19,230-38,460USD/month) and is an employee or sole practitioner with a thriving practice. Findings also suggest that the majority of chiropractors in Hong Kong have a vertebral subluxation focus and use a range of techniques in their practice.
