COVID-19 Study Recruitment
In the healthcare profession it has been an “all hands on deck” response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the chiropractic profession.
“Whether through continuing to provide chiropractic care, telehealth discussions, research or by educating patients, chiropractors have worked to serve their patients and the global community,” according to Dr. Stephanie Sullivan, director of Life University’s Center for Chiropractic Research.
Life University is working to expand the understanding of COVID-19 and chiropractic care through working with different research institutions and organizations to conduct a series of COVID-19 clinical studies. These studies are designed to evaluate the process and protocols for assessing changes in a patient’s nervous system function, viral symptoms and disease progression following two weeks of chiropractic care.
If you or someone you know has recently tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently showing mild symptoms of the virus, participation in the study may be an option. The study is specifically for individuals who are 45 to 75 years old who have at least one risk factor for increased disease progression. This could include such conditions as cardiovascular disease, lung disease or diabetes. The chiropractic care being provided is gentle and low force.

This study has been approved by the Life University Institutional Review Board, and participants could earn up to $150 for participation in one of the research studies. This clinical study will take place at on off-campus location to be shared with those who inquire and are eligible for the study.
