ICPA PBRN Projects

ICPA PBRN studies originate both from ideas submitted from our members and general chiropractic community to address questions of immediate interest to the chiropractic profession. Foremost are the safety and effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic, women’s health issues and general family care. Credentialed PBRN chiropractors are provided the opportunity to positively impact the future of chiropractic.
