Dear AO Doctors:

Welcome to 2022 from the board of directors of the R.W. Sweat Foundation.

We are all saddened at the loss of our leader/founder Roy W. Sweat, D.C., B.C.A.O. He truly was a giant in chiropractic. We were all blessed to know him and learn “at the feet of the master.”

Dr. Sweat would not want us to stagnate. He would not want us to mourn for too long. He would want us to carry on and that is what exactly we are going to do. In fact, that is exactly what we are doing.

There are some great things going on with The Atlas Orthogonal Program. Dr. Matthew Sweat has taken over all of the teaching at the Sweat Institute. He teaches Basic I-IV every month. He is also teaching the C.C.A.O. program as well as continuing the advanced seminars. Dr. Angelo Colavita is travelling the country speaking at Sherman College, Palmer Iowa and Life West. He is going to be teaching the Basics at Life West very soon. We have a great presence at Palmer Iowa, Sherman College, Life University in Marietta and several others are in the works. If any of you has any connections with your schools, please let us know. Personally I have taught the Basic program at Sherman. I have spoken to several classes there recently and we have a great presence at that college. I and several other of our doctors have spoken either in person or on Zoom at Palmer Iowa. These programs are available to view by everyone. Watch the Atlas Orthogonal Daily Practice Facebook page for these classes/talks.

You are truly the greatest doctors in the world! Your commitment to Atlas Orthogonal is unprecedented. We are extremely proud of all of you. We know that this is not an easy program, and it takes many hours of dedication to learn. You should all be as proud of yourselves as we are of you!

We continue to get correspondence from patients saying that doctors are giving multiple thrusts without examining the patient between adjustments. Dr. Sweat has always said that if you must change the vectors and give another thrust you must first examine the patient’s scanning palpation and leg check. He has also said that you should never give more than 3-4 adjustments per visit. Post x-rays are vital in this procedure. We are aware of some rules/laws in some states about taking the post x-rays following the first adjustment. You really need to decide if your patient is worth it really. There was an article published entitled “Standard of Care for Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Procedures.” We will post this article again on the website.

The R.W. Sweat Foundation needs to be included in your giving. Most of you understand that in order to receive you must give. Dr. Sweat gave more than 70 years to the betterment of chiropractic. We all have benefited from his care and his genius. We all have stories of how our lives were literally saved by AO. To quote one of our great AO doctors, “Everything that I have, the clothes on my back, my cars, my office, my home…I owe to Dr. Sweat and what he has taught me.” That is a profound statement with which I know most all of you would agree. Please continue to give generously. One office visit a month from everyone would be great. I continue to give $100 per month. You can put it on your credit card so it is very easy. If all of us did this it would give the foundation at least $300,000 per year! Imagine the work that we can get done with that kind of money!

The policy of the program is that you must attend an Atlas Orthogonal Seminar at least every two years. The Grostic Program required 2 times per year. Most of the advanced techniques require these programs. If you do not attend the required seminars we will have to, unfortunately, remove you from the directory. There are many opportunities to get to an Atlas Orthogonal Seminar including the ones in Atlanta, California, Washington and Canada. Learning one thing at these seminars is worth the price of admission. Dr. Sweat has said that if you learn one thing from the Seminar it was worth it. You can also attend the dissection seminars, the basic seminars and the C.C.A.O. seminars.

I hope all of you are doing well this year. We have some exciting things planned for this year. I hope to see all of you at the Atlas Orthogonal Advanced Seminar the third weekend in May.


Dennis G. Fiorini, D.C., B.C.A.O.
President, R.W. Sweat Foundation
