In this paper we present a pilot survey focusing on the chiropractors' views on possible racial differences in their patients' response to treatment. A questionnaire was developed and validated through this study. Results of this - pilot survey -show that the majority of respondents did not see biological race as a significant factor in chiropractic treatment and response to it. Thus, one may hypothesize that the race concept in chiropractic might not be as critical and contentious as it seems to be in the "mainstream" medicine. The inclusion of questions on patients' cultural differences is suggested for future surveys. Further studies, based on bigger and more diverse samples of chiropractors could shed more light on this issue.
