Dr. Charles E. Gibson graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in June 1955. He then added six months of post graduate
training at Cleveland College of Chiropractic. He received his California license to practice chiropractic in June 1956. He then served two years in the US Army at the Walter Reed Medial Center working in the x-ray and laboratory services. Dr Gibson entered chiropractic practice on January 15, 1959 and practiced actively until February 1, 1988.
In his years in practice Dr Gibson developed one of the premier practices in the world. From 1965 until 1967 he took post-graduate training in Chiropractic Orthopedics at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. In 1966 he co-wrote a book on management of acute trauma cases that was used as an auxiliary textbook at Palmer College. He became an expert in personal injury management, testifying as an expert witness 111 times and participating in more than 500 depositions.
Within a few short years, Dr. Gibson became in demand as a speaker. He has appeared at state convention programs in 32 states and two Canadian provinces, teaching acute trauma management and practice management. He has spoken at the International Chiropractors National Convention, numerous state license renewal programs, been a guest lecturer at the University of California at Davis Law School, and he has spoken at virtually every chiropractic school in the United States.
Demand for his services as a speaker and his skills as a consultant resulted in Dr. Gibson creating Gibson Management Consultants in 1977. Since that time he has conducted more than 1000 seminars, consulting more than 4,000 chiropractors in the United States, Canada, England, and Australia.
He has been active in the profession as a past Representative Assemblyman in International Chiropractic Association, he is a co-founder of the International Chiropractic Association of California, and he is the founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table. He is a past president of the Society of Chiropractic Management Consultants

He continues to travel the country at a rapid pace to promote success in chiropractic. His other interests are varied and numerous.
