Why the ACP?
“Enrolling in the ACP program was the most important decision I have made as
a chiropractor. The in depth analysis of our philosophy and history has given me
incredible certainty that has resulted in improved communication of the principles
with my practice members and other chiropractors. Do it for yourself, your practice
members and the profession” – Steve Tullius, DC, AC
