Chiropractic is regulated in France. Ministerial Decree No. 2011-32 of 7 January 2011 allows medical doctors, midwives, physiotherapists, nurse practitioners and other practitioners to practise chiropractic.

Practitioners not being medical doctors themselves are only allowed to
treat patients after a diagnosis is made by a medical doctor (114).

In September 2011 a new bill on chiropractic and osteopathy was proposed with the
purpose of establishing a High Council of chiropractic and osteopathy. Additional medical
qualifications in osteopathy and chiropractic as well as Master’s degrees in osteopathy and
chiropractic could give individuals the right to practise these therapies as distinct disciplines in themselves (115). The bill is not yet passed.
