About Us

Members of the Academy are designated as Fellows of the International Academy of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (FIANM). Academy membership is comprised of specialty board-certified chiropractic orthopedists and neuromusculoskeletal specialists. These are doctors of chiropractic who have completed an extensive residency, post-doctoral or graduate-level education in non-surgical orthopedics, biomechanical, and neuromusculoskeletal medicine and have passed a specialty board certification examination to become board certified chiropractic neuromusculoskeletal specialists. The Academy is independent of all chiropractic political and trade organizations. No other chiropractic organization membership is necessary for membership in the Academy.

A goal of the Academy is to provide, through a membership organization for board-certified chiropractic orthopedists and neuromusculoskeletal specialists, a venue for the exchange of clinical information, promote continuing education in chiropractic orthopedics and neuromusculoskeletal medicine and publish in a peer-reviewed and an indexed journal “The Journal of the International Academy of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine“ (JIANM). The Academy provides a specialty board certification process(es) and maintains specialty credentials by maintaining credentials and a competency program in chiropractic orthopedics. 

The Academy presents an initial specialty board certification examination and a re-certification process for the specialty. The Academy maintains a yearly mandatory re-certification process available for Fellows of the Academy.
