Support Specific Projects
The Centre for Chiropractic Research has numerous research projects underway and many more we are planning. If there is a specific area of research that you are interested in supporting, please consider donating to one of the following projects.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)

AK practitioners can reliably find ‘weak muscles’, but what exactly is a weak muscle? Using the latest bio medical engineering technology, we will investigate changes in these muscles before and after adjustments.

Paediatric/Kids Summit

The Centre for Chiropractic Research has conducted a number of research studies looking at the effects of chiropractic care on the paediatric population, which has generously been supported by Kids Summit. One of our exciting upcoming projects will be investigating the neurophysiological effects of chiropractic adjustments on babies using EEG and heart rate variability.

Prefrontal cortex

We know that chiropractic adjustments alter the prefrontal cortex, but what does this mean for the health and function of our practice members? Support our ground breaking 12-week clinical trial on the effects of chiropractic care on prefrontal cortex functions, such as immune function, sleep and stress.

PhD scholarship donation

The field of chiropractic research is growing and there is so much research to do. We want to continue to advance the chiropractic profession with high-quality research and an important part of this is to support chiropractors to undertake a PhD.

You can help support Dr Jenna Duehr who will be undertaking a PhD through The University of Auckland looking at the neurophysiological effects of chiropractic adjustments on babies.
