This research will investigate the convergent validity of physiological and psychological stress symptoms measured by the novel Stress and Sensorimotor Integration Questionnaire (SDSSMIQ) against the established Depression, Anxiety and Stress scale. The SDSSMIQ is a new tool that has been developed to measure the degree to which an individual’s vertebral subluxation affects how they process sensory information and function and how vertebral subluxations correlate with symptoms of stress. This study will be the first of a series of research studies to assess the psychometric properties of the SDSSMIQ.
