Dr. Colloca has been involved in basic science, clinical, and outcomes
research. Surface electromyographic mount for collection of neuromuscular responses during chiropractic adjustments. Since
1998, Dr. Keller has made bi-yearly visits to Dr. Colloca's clinical
research facility to conduct chiropractic research on actual patients. Together, they have now collected data on Neuromuscular
responses to chiropractic adjustments using surface electromyography. This
work has led to several studies presented at international scientific
spine conferences and subsequent publications in the biomedical

of the most exciting and unique original research involves
neurophysiological recordings from the spinal nerve roots in patients
undergoing spinal surgery in conjunction with orthopaedic surgeons.Neurophysiological
responses have been recorded during chiropractic adjustments for the first time with such a protocol.
