Our Mission: To advance chiropractors' ability to deliver spine and posture rehabilitation.

The Pettibon Institute, a non-profit organization founded by Dr. Burl R. Pettibon in1981, is dedicated to research that supports The Pettibon System's efficacy and to providing evidence-based courses that spread its practice.

  • X-ray procedures that ensure exact diagnosis, assess progress, and prove treatment effectiveness.
  • Testing each patient's ability to respond to care.
  • Training patients in home care for faster correction.

Transform your life and your patients' lives

Ask Pettibon practitioners what started the transformation of their practice and future and most will say it was their first course on The Pettibon System. The consistent reaction is how the science, logic, and compelling proof make it impossible to go back to conventional chiropractic.
