Local chiropractor Dr. Jeffrey McKinley was recently recognized as a fellow of the International College of Chiropractors.
Dr. McKinley is one of only seven chiropractors in the state of Tennessee to have ever received this recognition. This fellowship award is given to doctors of chiropractic who have done extraordinary things for the profession. Only about 1 percent of the chiropractors in the world are recognized as a fellow of the International College of Chiropractors.
The presentation took place at Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro at the Tennessee Chiropractic Association annual convention. The award was presented by current FICC member Dr. Richard Cole. The fellow designation is bestowed upon those whose contributions have made or who will make significant impact upon the science of chiropractic and to those who render valuable and meritorious service to the profession.
The International College of Chiropractic was formed in 1938 to promote the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic and to promote the teaching and the study of chiropractic. The ICCI is a nonprofit organization that encourages a high code of ethics among practitioners, researchers, educators and others in the chiropractic profession.
Dr. McKinley was recognized due to his involvement at the state and national levels. At the stated level, he has been president of the Tennessee Chiropractic Association, a member of the Medicare advisory committee, and has been an instructor across the state for continuing education.
At the national level, he has served as the alternate director for Tennessee to the American Chiropractic Association and is a member of the ACA’s Medicare committee. Dr. McKinley is a certified chiropractic sports physician, certified in Graston technique, is a certified Kinesiotape practitioner, and a certified posture exercise professional.
