Ground-breaking research and innovation
AECC students and staff receive acclaim for their chiropractic research. This year, the AECC was awarded at not only a European level but also at a global level for its research and innovation. This helps it to push the boundaries of the profession and to produce graduates that are the practitioners - and leaders - of the future.
AECC leads development of new technology
The AECC has its very own research institute: the Institute for Musculoskeletal Research and Clinical Implementation (IMRCI). The IMRCI has developed ground-breaking technology known as OSMIA that is now increasingly being used in the United States to measure the motion of spinal segments in living individuals.
Pushing spinal health into the stratosphere
Hot on the heels of Tim Peake’s mission to the International Space Station a Dorset healthcare institution now is collaborating on its own mission that could impact the future of space travel as we know it. The Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) are to collaborate in a European Space Agency project led by scientists at King’s College London in order to add their expertise in state-of- the-art spinal evaluation. The project centres around determination of the effect of a SkinSuit which aims to mitigate the spinal elongation and possibly also some of the musculoskeletal deconditioning that occurs to astronaut during space flight.
Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro)
One of the foundations of the AECC's success has been the excellence of its five-year chiropractic programme, and this remains at the heart of what the AECC does.
To qualify as a chiropractor, new students are required to complete successfully the full-time five-year Masters in Chiropractic degree.
