In 1999, he obtained the position of chair for the department of applied chiropractic in CMCC’s undergraduate program. He became director of education, year I, in 2008.
Research Interests:

  • Accuracy of Manipulation: Typically, the intent of practitioners who apply forces and loads to the spine is to affect a specific region of anatomy. For chiropractors, it is often a particular vertebral motion segment. While Dr. Ross is interested in all facets of manipulation biomechanics, (including an understanding of cavitation and vibrational characteristics of the spine before and after manipulation), his current focus involves evaluation of the degree of accuracy with which such forces and loads can be applied. That is, to what degree can manipulation be applied to isolated levels and to what extent of tissues and locations do the biomechanical repercussions of manipulation spread?
  • Many given activity can be expected to facilitate angles of motion at several levels up the joint chain. Orthotics are used in an effort to stabilize basic patterns of foot motion in everyday life, to prevent pain and possibly injury. The biomechanical ramifications of orthotics in sports are largely unexplored. Dr. Ross is interested in the relationship between biomechanical changes due to orthotics and performance and injury prevention, in various sporting activities.
