The American Chiropractic Neurology Board is the sole specialty board in neurology recognized by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). The ACNB’s Diplomate program has achieved accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
We provide an annual written examination and an annual performance or practical examination at least one time per year. As soon as we know when those exams will be held, we post the dates on the website. The examinations are comprehensive and address all of the issues identified on the Job Analysis as important to the field.
To answer the question what is a Chiropractic Neurologist:
A chiropractic neurologist is a Doctor of Chiropractic or the equivalent that has taken 300 post-doctoral hours of coursework in functional neurology and passed the rigorous written and performance exams required for certification by the ACNB. We call these doctors Diplomates of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). They use the patient’s body and environment to assess, diagnose and localize areas of dysfunction. The human body systems are constantly affecting the neurological system and being effected by the neurological system. Our doctors use this functional and holistic approach to target interventions specific to the location of the dysfunction.
The chiropractic neurologist uses the muscular skeletal system and the sensory systems as they interact with the neurological system to improve quality of life. They use a variety of treatment modalities including the technique of adjustment as well as other sensory-based modalities to bring about improvements in health.
