Make a Gift to: Research
















The Dr. Sid E. Williams Center for Chiropractic Research (CCR) seeks to tell the chiropractic story using the language of research. Focusing on four main research themes - biomechanics, practice-based research, neuroscience and cognition and the development of the technique lab of the future - the CCR is currently working on 30+ research projects, including:  

  •  Quantitative assessment of changes in brain activity before and after a chiropractic adjustment
  • Variability of vertical ground reaction forces in adults with chronic low back pain, before and after a limited protocol of chiropractic care
  • Thrust magnitudes, rates and 3-dimensional directions delivered in simulated lumbar spine HVLA adjustments
  • Using private electronic health record databases for effectiveness research

In addition to individual research studies, the CCR is focused on a number of large-scale projects. For instance, the development of an adjusting mannequin to improve the safety and quality of early chiropractic technique training through creation of a lifelike simulator to train students to deliver controlled thrusts into spinal segments. In the area of practice based research, the CCR has made a major commitment to practice-based studies through creation of a chiropractic learning healthcare community (Research Link). One of the great advantages of practice-based research is that no individual practice needs to be responsible for generating the numbers of patients that are necessary to create a powerful research study.  Instead, data from patients in a number of practices can be pooled and processed to provide meaningful answers to clinical research questions.

We invite you to be a part of this work with a financial commitment.
