Mile High Hosting Subluxation Science Panel

Christie Kwon MS, DC and Curtis Fedorchuk DC have been invited to participate along with 5 other chiropractors, academics, and researchers in a panel discussion on subluxation science at the Mile High Chiropractic Event August 16-19, 2018.

Dr. Kwon was recently awarded a scholarship by the Foundation for Vertebral Subluxation (FVS) to participate in a Functional MRI Visiting Fellowship. The Fellowship took place earlier this year and has resulted in a flurry of activity and excitement at the FVS because of the potential this holds for subluxation research.

Kwon was also recently awarded an Advancing Futures Research Scholarship by the FVS to complete a Master’s in Public Health at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kwon is a chiropractor and also holds a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering and has drafted a Research Agenda for Advanced Imaging of Vertebral Subluxation that she will be presenting at Sherman's International Research & Philosophy Symposium in October.

Curtis Fedorchuk DC is a Board Member of the FVS and leads a team of prolific practitioner/scientists working on numerous research projects centered on vertebral subluxation. Fedorchuk and his team are currently focused on epidemiological research to determine the prevalance of subluxation in the population. This is among numerous other projects they are involved in.

Other members of the Panel will include:

  • Donald Epstein DC - Network Spinal Analysis
  • Mo Andrews DC - Instructor Life West 
  • David Russell DC - Private Practice NZ
  • Amy Haas DC, Ph.D - Private Practice NH
  • Billy Chow DC - ASRF Board

The past couple of years have been a productive and tumultuous time for subluxation research as several organizations have either developed their own defintions of vertebral subluxation and developed or adopted others' research agendas.

Those actions have not been without controversy as issues surrounding terminology, operational models, validity and reliability of methods and political considerations have made for heated debate.

The debates have highlighted how nuanced subluxation research actually is despite the ties binding that community together in opposition to an ever increasing chorus of subluxation denialists.

Scarcity of resources to conduct research on vertebral subluxation require a sharp focus on doing it right and not conflating what chiropractors do with a host of other manual therapy providers.
