What is Chiropractic Science?

Chiropractic science is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians are well known for their expertise in spinal health and well-being.

Our Mission

  • Get the word out about chiropractic science.  Part of this mission will be reached by interviewing chiropractic experts that are actually doing the research.  Making scientific findings available to the public is an important part of the research process.  Publicizing these interviews passes on the benefits of chiropractic research to other researchers, chiropractors in practice as well as practitioners from other disciplines and the wider community.
  • Encourage collaboration of researchers to promote future high quality chiropractic research.
  • Motivate and assist practitioners and students alike to pursue research careers in chiropractic science!!!!
