Research directed towards improving outcomes for musculoskeletal conditions, a foundational component of chiropractic care, through studies focusing on clinical assessment and interventions. Primary areas of study include clinical guideline development, systematic reviews, studies of assessment and diagnosis, clinical and cost-effectiveness trials, prognosis, disability, rehabilitation and health services.
CMCC researchers are conducting a number of basic scientific studies to understand the mechanisms by which chiropractic care achieves its many effects. Among the projects underway are studies of the role of inflammation, the effects of spinal cord and nerve root compression, the role of sensory input from the vertebral arteries and molecular responses to cervical adjustment.
Each year, our researchers provide an update on current projects they are working on in their respective areas. Their updates are shared below:
Financing a professional program requires planning, budgeting and support. To help students balance the costs, CMCC offers over 90 scholarships, awards and bursaries. If you are interested in creating an award, we invite you to peruse the current awards. There are many ways to fund this type of student support and we would be happy to discuss them with you.
