Why seek care from a Chiropractic Orthopedist?
Board certified chiropractic orthopedists are doctors of chiropractic who have completed extensive postdoctoral education in non-surgical orthopedics, and have passed rigorous specialty Board examinations leading to Diplomate status as a chiropractic orthopedist. Less than 2% of chiropractic physicians attain this status.
To become Board certified, the chiropractic orthopedic specialist is required to demonstrate advanced proficiency in the evaluation and non-operative management of a broad range of injuries, conditions and disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system with particular emphasis on the spine and extremities.

A letter from our President
July 7, 2020
I hope that you are all doing well in these uncertain and challenging times.
Obviously, this year has thrown most people’s lives off course and the ACCO is no different. in the face of this unprecedented pandemic, we rescheduled our annual convention from April to September 17-19, 2020. We now continue to monitor the development of the outbreak throughout the country, especially in Las Vegas.
We hope to be able to go forward with the convention, and we hope you will join us. We take the health and safety of our members seriously and will have appropriate guidelines in place during the convention to maximize everyone’s safety while still producing a valuable and successful convention.
As the date approaches, we will make a final decision if the risks outweigh the benefits and if the Tropicana is open or closed.
I want to thank you for standing by our organization during these trying times and I promise we have your best interests and safety at heart with each decision we make.
Thank you again and I hope to see you all in Vegas in September!
