December 22, 2008 — The American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA) named Dr. Gene Giggleman, dean of academics at Parker College of Chiropractic, the newest president of the organization. The AVCA is a group of veterinarians and chiropractors working together within their disciplines to expand and promote the knowledge and acceptance of animal chiropractic to their professions, the public, and governments.
Dr. Giggleman has been serving as the president-elect for two years and will now serve a two-year term as acting president. He hopes to facilitate some changes that will advance the profession of animal chiropractic and allow more animals to receive the benefits of chiropractic care.
Since 1989, nearly 900 animal chiropractic professionals have been certified, and with the growing popularity of animal chiropractic care, the demand for qualified practitioners is still high. The AVCA developed the industry standard of care, knowledge, and experience required for animal chiropractic, and only those who have completed the certification should have the authority to practice animal chiropractic.
