The Pierce Clinic is home to the Institute

The Pierce Clinic of Chiropractic is the home of the Advanced Orthogonal Institute, and the doctors of the Pierce Clinic are a big part of its success.  The Advanced Orthogonal Institute hosts seminars and training programs that teach doctors and chiropractic students from all over the United States and the world the Advanced Orthogonal technique.

Since 2001, the Pierce Clinic has been hosting training seminars to equip doctors with these precision adjusting skills through the Advanced Orthogonal Technique and Procedures program.  In 2014, the Advanced Orthogonal Institute was formally established as a board run non-profit organization and has expanded its mission and its capabilities to reach many more doctors and students with this high quality training.

The Mission of the Institute

Currently, the mission of the Advanced Orthogonal Institute includes the expansion of training opportunities and certification in the Advanced Orthogonal procedure.  The Institute is also dedicated to advancing the procedure and the technology used to correct misalignments of the upper cervical spine.  Furthermore, the Institute is dedicated to participating in, and initiating research to further validate the functional and neurological changes of specific upper cervical procedures.

Training Seminars

The Pierce Clinic continues to contribute to the expansion of Advanced Orthogonal Chiropractors by hosting regular training seminars.  Each of the doctors of the Pierce Clinic is a Board Member and instructor in the Advanced Orthogonal Institute.  These seminars train and equip doctors and students to high standards of care that are unmatched in the field.

The Pierce Clinic also offers internships through the Advanced Orthogonal Institute that help certify doctors in the Advanced Orthogonal procedures.  Some of our doctors are extended faculty of chiropractic colleges such as Palmer College of Chiropractic, Sherman College of Chiropractic, and Life University.  We look to establish relationships with more chiropractic colleges to expand training opportunities for students.
