Keizer University chiropractic researchers share their findings with the International Consortium
Dr. Ralph Kruse, a clinician and chiropractic researcher at Keizer University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine, recently did double duty at the inaugural virtual conference of the International Consortium on Manual Therapies, hosted and organized by the AT Still College of Osteopathic Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona.
Kruse presented two posters on the results of chiropractic research from studies he had conducted with his colleagues, Dr. Ram Gudavalli, Dr. Bret White and Dr. Maria-Berenice Duran. Presentations highlighted ultrasound measurements of lumbar spine segments and patient responses to ongoing post-surgical pain on Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression.
After kicking off in May 2022, the month-long online event allowed attendees to explore a virtual conference room as avatars and communicate “face-to-face” via webcam with fellow attendees. Poster contest participants enjoyed meaningful virtual interactions when communicating with researchers and judges.
