Alexander S. Yu           8 and 9. Dr. Pisciottano’s topic was “The Success Achievement System.”
                            Dr. Pisciottano is the founder of ProSolutions, which markets the Pro-Adjuster. After
                          Dr. Pisciottano graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1989, he moved back
                          home to Pittsburgh. Walter Vernon Pierce Sr., DC, a family friend and co-developer of the
                          manual Pierce-Stillwagon Technique, became his mentor. When Dr. Pierce died in 1993, he
                          had partially completed a computerized instrument for spinal analysis, treatment and post-
                          treatment re-analysis. Dr. Pisciottano decided to carry on his work on the Pro-Adjuster. The
                          instrument has an electric sensor in its head for evaluation of motion dynamics of the spine.
                          During treatment, the adjuster stops when vertebral motion reaches an optimal level.
                            Today ProSolutions provides the
                          Pro-Adjuster and a training program
                          for its use to doctors worldwide. Dr.
                          Pisciottano funded travel expenses for
                          several DCs trained in his technique,
                          who accompanied him during his visit to
                          Logan. They spent a full day participating
                          in clinical trials in the Logan Research
                          Division. Data gathered during the trials
                          will be compiled for research publication
