ICPA PBRN Projects


ICPA PBRN Chiropractic Research 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 is 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. 

Current PBRN Chiropractic Research Projects

Study 18Children's satisfaction with their chiropractic care

The purpose of this study is to look at how happy and satisfied children are with their chiropractic care and why their parent/guardian chose chiropractic for their child.

This study requires 12 pediatric patients (ages 8-17) and their parent/guardian to complete a series of surveys with at least 7 days in between surveys.  The deadline to submit data for this study is December 31, 2020.

For this study, you will need access to the internet so that you can register your patients in our PBRN database.  You will also need a printer, as you will need to print PDF copies of consent forms and the paper surveys for your patients to complete.  Once the patients have completed all necessary surveys, you will need to scan/photograph the completed surveys and email them to the ICPA PBRN coordinator.  You need to keep a copy of all study documents in your patient files for 5 years.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Kelli at for further instructions.
