Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I'm your Noah Volz. Today I'm here with Dr. Christine Goertz. She's the vice chancellor for research and health policy at Palmer College of Chiropractic and the chief executive officer of The Spine Institute for quality called spine IQ. What is the work that you're working on currently and what are the changes that you've seen over the last 25 years in terms of chiropractic that would be really relevant to students?
Dr. Goertz: We're really excited about a grant that we just got from the National Institutes of Health in September 2018. It's a largest grant that has ever gone to a chiropractic educational institution from NIH. It's a multidisciplinary effort that includes investigators from Yale, the University of Iowa and then the VA in Connecticut, Minneapolis, and in Iowa City as well as the Palmer Center for chiropractic research. We are researching dosing. Even after 25 or 30 years of comprehensive research in chiropractic in regards to low back pain. We still don't know enough. We don’t know how many times a patient needs to see a chiropractor to have the best outcome.
Writing with originality, generosity, compassion and purpose, Dr. Noah Volz imparts valuable lessons in an entertaining, engaging and snappy way―backed by a wealth of experience. As an author, chiropractor, and entrepreneur, he has started and run multiple companies and has been the host of the DC2Be Revolution YouTube channel and podcast.
