Marc G. Pick is a Doctor of Chiropractic with a private practice in Beverly Hills, California since 1973. In a desire to enhance his services, he attended Emperors College of Traditional Oriental Medicine from 1987-92, and in 1997, he completed the American
Chiropractic Association’s 300-hour postgraduate course in Neurology. Currently, Dr. Pick has logged over 1,580 postgraduate study hours in neurology through the Carrick Institute of postgraduate studies and hold’s his Diplomat status in neurology through the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.
He earned his Diplomat and Fellowship status in Craniopathy through the International Craniopathic Society sponsored by the Sacro-Occipital Research Society International (SORSI) and lectured throughout the United States, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Australia, England, France, Canada, Italy, Spain and Switzerland since 1979.
Since 1973, he has accomplished several thousand hours of human dissection and founded Project Human (the construction of a prosected latex humanoid cast from the parts of human cadavers).
Naturally inquisitive about the intracranial impact of cranial manipulations, he began investigating the visual effects of cranial manipulations upon the intracranial structures during MRI scanning and was published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) in 1994. His more recent work is the text, “Cranial Sutures,” published and released through Eastland Press. The text is a comprehensive guide to sutural analysis, morphology and manipulative strategies and is designed to aid the practitioner’s manipulative applications through a greater understanding of the skull’s interarticular relationships. In 1998, Dr. Pick was approached by the Pacific Asian Association of Chiropractic (PAAC) to develop and conduct an ongoing course in human dissection to be held annually at the John Burns School of Medicine in Honolulu. Since that time Marc Pick Creations has included an extra four-day course each year and this is now offered through Marc Pick Creations as a postgraduate continuing educational course each year.
One of Dr. Pick’s proudest accomplishments was his creation of a latex fiber optic model of the Human Central & Peripheral Nervous System. This was placed on loan to the Wellcome Trust for their 2002 Exhibit that was displayed at the Museum of Science in London. A photograph taken by Pat York of Dr. Pick’s dissection reveals the entire central and peripheral nervous system with dural meningeal structures intact. This photograph is currently on exhibit in the Welcome Trust’s London Museum as part of its permanent display.
