Our Chiropractic Oath

I do hereby swear before these assembled witnesses that I will do my utmost to keep this oath as a graduate of Western States Chiropractic College.
I will light the way to the understanding of those natural laws which preserve the human body, as a fitting temple for the soul.
I will keep the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the sick as my fore­most duty, ever searching for and correcting the cause of their disease to the best of my ability.
I will at all times stand ready to serve humanity without distinction of race creed or color. I will prevent and alleviate human suffering. I will exemplify a pattern of living in harmony with the laws of nature.
With purity I will pass my life and practice my art. I will refrain from any act of wrong-doing. I will regard the keeping of a patient’s confidence as a moral obligation. I will at all times consider the patients under my care as of su­preme importance. I will not spare myself in rendering them the help which I have been taught by my alma mater.
May the skillful use of my hands be so directed, that I may bring strength to the sick, relief to the suffering, peace of mind to the anxious, and the inspira­tion to the human race to attain bountiful health, that we may live this life to the fullest expression of its innate endowments.
I, [name) therefore solemnly swear to uphold these principles and precepts, to the best of my ability. (So help me God.)**
