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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
