Research Agenda Progress: Conceptual Vertebral Subluxation Definition

In the history of the Foundation, we have had more than a few highpoints. Among these highlights are many quality research papers giving key insight into the mechanisms and impacts of chiropractic care. Yet something has been missing – a definition of the vertebral subluxation that is philosophically congruent, usable in practice and testable in research. It was this glaring lack that inspired the research agenda that now drives us. It is an exciting time in our history, and we are thrilled that we can share part one of this agenda – a conceptual definition of the vertebral subluxation for […]

Opinion: The Above Atlas Subluxation – The Disconnect

It is fair to say that there is division in the profession; there has been for some time and unfortunately there may be for a while yet. Whether we, as a profession, disagree and debate philosophy, technique, communication styles, practice styles, or something else entirely, some things are certain: there is definitely more that unifies us than defies us, we have survived worse, and there is always more we can do.  One beautiful aspect about chiropractic that has always set us apart is this pursuit of the cause of a problem. Why is it there and what brought it on? […]

Research Funding

Question: How Does The Foundation Determine What Projects Are Funded?

Have you ever wondered how Spinal Research determines who gets the money that you donate? The Foundation is incredibly proud of our two-stage approval process. We believe this sets us apart from other research funding bodies. It has served us well for many years and was the result of reviewing the processes used by a number of national and international competitive funding bodies. Our application and assessment process reflects research sector best practice.  The Grants The Foundation offers research grants to support our research agenda, investigating the vertebral subluxation, its effects and impacts through our chiropractic paradigm. The two major […]

Chiropractic For The Pregnant Mother

Pregnancy can be an incredibly scary time for the women and families involved. They are constantly surrounded by a million different opinions and expectations about how to carry and care for the child within them. As chiropractors, it is both a responsibility and a privilege to care for increasing numbers of pregnant women as more and more of them seek us out as part of their pregnancy plan.  This article will explore some new research around the possible benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women and offer a brief review of the broader picture of chiropractic care in this area.

Clinical Applications of BIA for the Management of Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disorders

Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is an indispensable tool in the monitoring and management of patients with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, as well as patients recovering from injury or surgery. The VLA Quadscan provides you with a deeper insight into your patients’ health, allowing you to closely monitor their treatment progress, and provide tangible results for patients, significantly enhancing compliance. The Process and Purpose of Inflammation Acute inflammation evolved to be a protective process, to overcome a short-lived threat, such as an injury, with the function to restore tissue homeostasis. Unfortunately, the majority of the inflammation affecting patients in many clinics, […]

Cervical Curve and Chiropractic

Over the last few decades the incidence of postural kyphosis has noticeably increased in proportion to our increasingly sedentary modern lifestyle. We sit all day at computers, lean over our phones and we lay with our chin on our chests as we work through an entire Netflix series in a weekend. It has been suggested historically that a kyphotic cervical spine is a “normal variant” in human posture. This appears to be an incorrect but worrying myth. Drs. Harrison and Haas reviewed some of the papers in which this claim is made in their 2002 work, CBP Structural Rehabilitation of […]

Case Study: Natural Management of Chronic Inflammatory Conditions

Inflammation Damages Lives Chronic inflammatory conditions are one of the most common presentations that Practitioners see in clinic. Whether it be autoimmune (AI) conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis (RA); degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis (OA); or injury resulting in chronic pain and inflammation, the pain and discomfort caused by chronic inflammatory conditions can significantly impact a patient’s quality of life, interfering with social activities, sleep efficiency, occupation choices and daily activities that are taken for granted by the wider community. Recently, Health World conducted a research clinic to successfully demonstrate the effectiveness of natural treatment prescriptions […]

The Possible Clinical Applications Of Heart Rate Variability

Living bodies are dynamic, open loop systems with definite boundaries that are characterised by a stable form and structure. The continued preservation of that form and structure requires millions of adaptive processes every second in a constantly changing interaction between the system and it’s shifting environment. Early models of this concept were described in the beginning of the 20th century by Walter Cannon as homeostasis. He conceptualised these processes as occurring locally and independently of the central nervous system and proposed a series of independent physiological systems that worked together in an effort to re-establish the conditions of the body […]
