Palmer's West campus researchers receive FCER grant fund approval

West campus faculty member Michael Haneline, D.C., M.P.H., and Robert Cooperstein, M.A., D.C., the West campus director of technique and research, recently received approval for grant funding from the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER) for a practice-based research study on acute neck pain.

“Neck pain is a very common disorder in the United States, with estimated prevalence rates in the general population of 13-18 percent,” said Dr. Haneline. “To address this issue, West researchers recently initiated a practice-based research project involving a number of chiropractors who will collect data on the care of their acute neck pain patients and then transmit the results to the West campus research department.”

The current study is preparatory to a larger-scale research project involving even more chiropractors and patients. The network of chiropractors also will be in a position to help investigate other clinical conditions in future practice-based research projects, using the same methodology. Doctors interested in participating in future practice-based research projects should contact Dr. Haneline at michael.haneline@palmer.edu.
