About Us

Board certified Dimplomates 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.

A goal of the Academy is to provide, through a membership, an 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 (MOC) and a competency program in chiropractic orthopedics.

The Academy maintains a yearly maintenance of credentials process available for Fellows specialists of the Academy.
