The Association of New Jersey Chiropractors (ANJC) is dedicated to advocating for the chiropractic profession and ensuring that patients throughout the state have access to quality care. Recently, ANJC Political Action Committee Chair Dr. Don Antonelli, Dr. David Friedman, and Dr. Steven Clarke met with Senator Joseph Cryan (District 20-Union) to discuss important issues impacting the profession.

Dr. Cryan has served in the New Jersey Legislature since 2002, initially as an Assemblyman and Assembly Majority Leader from 2010-12 before moving to the Senate Chambers in 2018. He currently serves on several committees, including the critical Senate Commerce Committee. The doctors discussed various topics, but the main focus was on continuing problems, issues with insurance carriers, and tactics to impact the availability of chiropractic care for patients.

As an organization, ANJC is committed to increasing its visibility with legislators in Trenton and throughout the state. We interact with decision-makers to raise awareness about the benefits of chiropractics and ensure that chiropractors are recognized as valuable members of the healthcare community. Our legal and legislative representation is essential in confronting key issues that face the chiropractic profession.

Our mission is to provide our members with the resources they need to provide their patients with the highest level of care. We are proud to advocate for chiropractors and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that patients throughout New Jersey have ample access to their services.

We understand the importance of staying informed on issues that may impact your practice and encourage all members to view the latest insurance news.
