Chiropractors who have received their education outside Denmark, including those from the Nordic countries and EU/EEA countries, must obtain Danish authorization in order to use the title of chiropractor in Denmark.

Authorization Process

The authorization process and the required documentation depend on the country of your nationality and the country where you obtained your qualification as a chiropractor.

Stay Updated

Until you receive Danish authorization and permission to work independently as a chiropractor, it is your responsibility to stay informed about any changes to the authorization proces and deadlines.


As stated in the Danish Authorization Act, chiropractors are required to practice their profession with care and conscientiousness. This also includes maintaining sound communication with patients, their families, and other healthcare professionals. The relevant authority evaluates whether the chiropractor meets the criteria outlined in the Danish Authorization Act.  

The 75-Year Rule

The entitlement to practice as a chiropractor expires at the age of 75.
