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.

Friends and Colleagues,
We at the ACCO would like to thank everyone that participated in this year’s conference. Since the start of 2020 all our worlds and lives have changed, and we have all had to adapt to our new normal. The ACCO as well, has tried to adapt to the new world we live in. As you all have noticed we have modified the structure of our conference by providing a hybrid approach, adjusting hours, and adding future dates for more opportunities to attend all while maintaining the same quality of speakers for which we have tirelessly strived. We at the ACCO are trying to stay fluid and provide the structure and function of this conference to appease to you, our members but still provide an exceptional educational experience.
As the newly elected president of the ACCO I am excited about the future of our profession and with collaboration with the CCO and IANM. With those partnerships I feel that we can see new expansion in our specialty. We look forward to hosting in new locations, expanding our marketing efforts and hopefully watching our specialties continued membership growth. In the upcoming years we are hopeful to continue the same standard of speakers we have always provided while also adding the most current topics relevant to our specialty. I hope that you are as enthusiastic as I am about all the things to come.
Jon A Dominique DC, DACO
