Our stated mission is to:
“The mission of the Dr. Sid E. Williams Center for Chiropractic Research at Life University is to conduct brain-body neuroplasticity research of clinical relevance to the patients and profession of chiropractic, embodying the core values of the University through excellence in the research process, strategic partnerships and knowledge translation.”
To provide a framework for mission focused research, the CCR is developing a Wellbeing and Health Expression Evaluation List (WHEEL). This initiative establishes and evaluates outcome measures that are easily deployable in a clinical setting, while concurrently leveraging research technology to conduct basic science and clinical research that will help provide an understanding of how observed changes are occurring. This approach is designed to help change the healthcare dialogue from a condition-based model to a development of health model, while providing clinicians practical, researched methods for demonstrating changes in their patients over time.
