Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
As in medicine and dentistry, we have specialities within the chiropractic profession. Chiropractic neurologists, through their education, training and board certification, choose to limit their practice to a certain specialty to assist members of their profession and allopathic physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions. Within the chiropractic profession, there are specialists in radiology, orthopaedics, neurology, and physical rehabilitation.
Typically, a chiropractic neurologist serves in the same consulting manner as a medical neurologist. The difference is that the therapies or applications of a chiropractic neurologist do not include drugs or surgery. As a result, certain conditions are more customarily seen by a chiropractic neurologist as opposed to a medical neurologist, and vice versa. Specifically, our people see patients with a variety of movement disorders, dystonia, post-stroke rehabilitation, and radiculopathy or nerve entrapment syndromes that are consequences of peripheral or central types of lesions. Chiropractic neurologists can provide therapies and treatments as well as counsel when there is a diagnostic dilemma or a question of appropriateness of care regarding an individual lesion or scenario.
Students enrolled in a doctoral program of study in a health care discipline may attend all modules and receive academic credit for all work completed.
Suggested process for enrollment:
- Visit the Schedule page and select a module that you wish to attend.
- You will then be guided through the process of registration and payment.
- You are automatically registered online.
- You will be asked to provide proof of your credentials upon arrival at your first class.
It is not necessary to begin at the first module nor to take the courses in order, however, due to the complexity of the material and the progressive design of the overall program, it would certainly be of the greatest benefit to the student, to begin at the first module.
The course stresses application throughout the learning process, which makes our instruction incredibly effective both in terms of retention of information and relevance to the practicing chiropractic neurologist. However, there is a stronger weighting of theoretical material in the earlier courses making for a solid foundation for later application. This again emphasizes the benefit of following the course sequence.
Before you can register for a module, you have to apply for enrollment to the program. We have an simple form to allow you to do this. Once accepted, you will will be able to use our easy online registration system.

The student scholar type is only reserved for those in a full-time doctoral program such as DC, PT, MD, DO, etc. If you are not board eligible, or not already boarded from the ACNB or the ACFN, then you would be categorized as a tradition “learner” scholar type.
A high-speed internet connection is recommended, such as cable internet or DSL (or something comparable), to ensure effective delivery of the learning material.
For most on-demand courses, you have access to the content for 12 months. Access to the material is specified on a course by course basis.
In the registration emails for courses, you will receive the reading list if there are recommended reading for that event.
Note packs are sometimes provided by the professors. That is dependent on the teaching style of the individual professor. It is recommended that you bring your own note taking system to events.
The Carrick Institute is adding event specific forums as part of your registration for an event. Please post your questions there to communicate with Carrick Institute faculty and scholars.
