Impulse Research


Dr. Chris Colloca is actively involved in chiropractic research.

Together with Tony S. Keller, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Vermont (Burlington, VT) and other collaborations, 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 literature.

Dr. Colloca delivers a chiropractic adjustment while nerve root recordings are being obtained in a patient undergoing lumbar spine surgery.

Some 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.
