The Israeli Chiropractic Society
I am an active member of the ICS. As one I feel that it is an honor as well as a pleasure to call many of our member's friends and colleagues. We have common goals to achieve, as an organization, and all serve to advance and improve the status of Chiropractic in Israel. Whether we practice in our private clinics or in any of the HMO groups, our society achievements will affect directly each and every one of us in our practices. It is a known fact that our numbers are few, yet in order to progress our common interests, to benefit the Israeli society, we need every chiropractor to join us. Our strength derives from our numbers. We ask you to become a participant. We want you to share your ideas, talents and yes, not less important, your funds to advance the chiropractic goals in Israel. Attorneys, Accountants, Public Relations, Internet, media etc. cost a fortune. As a united society we can reach our goals. All of us doing our best on a voluntary basis, and we ask only one thing in return: participate in any way you can, and if you are short with time, support the ICS by paying your dues on time.
B.J. Palmer said: "Where there is no vision the people perish". We invite you to share our vision for chiropractic in Israel. Please join and support the ICS.

ICS Ethics Commitee
You may ask yourself the following questions:
Why Should I be an active Member of the ICS?
Why should I pay my dues to the ICS?
I would like to answer those questions for you.
In Israel Chiropractic is a growing Recognized Health Care Profession. One of our goals is to demonstrate to the MOH a professional positive attitude and unity toward chiropractic legislation. We want every qualified professional to be a member of the ICS, the Major Professional Association in Israel. We wish to maintain the highest standards for ethics and professional guidelines.
A membership in the ICS implies to the general public and authorities a formal representation of our professional standards.
We ALL need to be concerned about Chiropractic Interests that affect us personally and professionally. The ICS is the formal representative organization that deals with other organizations, Health Ministry Organizations (HMO’s), Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Ministry of Defense (MOD) and Insurance companies.
The ICS conducts legal and media battles to influence the public's perception of chiropractic. We invest our efforts as an organization and in our clinics to reduce the damages caused every day by chiropractic impostures that DO NOT have the credentials and qualifications Doctors of Chiropractic have.
In order to advance chiropractic we need a positive constant exposure to the public. We promote our businesses by hiring a professional public relations firm. This expense is a large portion of the ICS's budget.
Our membership numbers affect our negotiating options with current and future sponsors. Their funds support our goals.
As ICS members we receive a 40% discount on a one time purchase of beds and mattresses from “Aminach”, our sponsor. We also receive a 20% discount on any purchase of postural supportive products.
ICS members have their name and clinic advertised by “Aminach” in a toll free 1-800 number. Members have a personal page in the ICS web site allowing them to give detailed information regarding their clinics. ICS members can participate in the annual postural checkups in the Tel Aviv fairgrounds. Members can receive a stock of colorful chiropractic booklets for their patients.
Our ICS membership grants us a group discount of $200 for an upgraded professional liability insurance and a third party insurance.
Our ICS membership gives us an option of preliminary consultation, free of charge, with the legal councils and CPA’s of the ICS.
