Research Studies/Grant Participation:

FEDERAL RESEARCH GRANTS FOR CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH IN COX7 DISTRACTION BIOMECHANICS
#1 - CHIROPRACTIC DEMONSTRATION PROJECT GRANT - HRSA BIOMECHANICS OF LOW BACK FLEXION-DISTRACTION THERAPY
    On October 5, 1994, Ram Gudavalli, PhD, of the Research Department at the National College of Chiropractic, Lombard, Illinois, was informed that the Health Resources and Services Administration of the United States Department of Health and Human Services will award $313,167 for the basic science study of the application of Cox7 Flexion Distraction Manipulation. This is one of the first three federal grants allotted for chiropractic research from the federal government which hopefully will mean favorability for future grants for such research for the chiropractic profession. The research into the basic science of Cox7 Flexion Distraction Manipulation will focus on the changes within the intervertebral foramen, intervertebral disc, and facet joints of adjustments of the lumbar spine that are performed under distraction. The principal investigator of this study is Ram Gudavalli, PhD. James M. Cox, DC, DACBR, will be the clinician. Dr. A.G. Patwardhan, Research Director at Loyola University School of Medicine and Mark Lorenz, MD, of the Loyola School of Medicine will be co-investigators of the study. Loyola University will perform the statistical analysis of the project.
