The Texas Chiropractic Association, in partnership with the Texas Council of Chiropractic Orthopedists (TCCO) and the University of Bridgeport, relaunched the Diplomate, Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (DACO) program at TCA’s Chiro Texpo ’18.

Feedback from the first course, taught by Dr. Tim Bertlesman, was overwhelmingly positive and TCA, TCCO and University of Bridgeport plan to host four additional, 10-hour seminars in Dallas this year.

Designed specifically for practicing chiropractors, University of Bridgeport’s Neuromusculoskeletal Post-Graduate Program and the related DACO Diplomate will give you the credentials necessary to become a valuable member of a primary healthcare team. Major changes in the chiropractic field are happening right now due to the Affordable Care Act, with new doors opening for chiropractors as a result.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be among the pioneers of this revolutionary change in delivering holistic healthcare by completing the DACO program in Texas!

The initial 50 hours of on-site training will be followed by 250 hours of online education, which focuses on differential diagnosis, evaluation and management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, especially acute and chronic pain conditions. Even if earning a Diplomate isn’t your goal, you will receive 10 hours of CE credit in Texas for every completed course.

September 22-23, 2019
Practical Assessment of the Chiropractic Patient: Efficiency in Orthopedic and Neurological Testing (10 CE hours)
Instructor: K. Jeffrey Miller, DC, FACO
