COVID-19 Resources

Welcome to the Life University Center for Chiropractic Research COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) resource page. D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, is attributed with saying:

“I desire to know why one person was ailing and his associate, eating at the same table, working in the same shop, at the same bench, was not. Why? What difference was there in these two persons that caused one to have various diseases, while his partner escaped?”

Keeping in mind the spirit of curiosity and discovery that has been so dominant in the chiropractic profession, this resource page has been designed to provide links to relevant government and organization websites, clinical resources and tools, and past chiropractic and immune system research. This website is not meant to be static, but will evolve as more research and information becomes available.

Today’s Conversations on Leadership (TCL), a thought-leadership vehicle of Life University, has released a conversation involving Heidi Haavik, D.C, Ph.D., Director of Research, Centre for Chiropractic Research at the New Zealand Chiropractic College; Dan Murphy, D.C., DABCO, a faculty member at Life Chiropractic College West; and James Chestnut, B.Ed., M.S., D.C., founder and president of The Wellness Practice, which outlines their thoughts on chiropractic care in the era of the COVID-19 health pandemic.

The conversation, moderated by Gerard W. Clum, D.C., Director of The Octagon at Life University, seeks to bring greater clarity to the expectations of the practicing chiropractor during this public health emergency from three internationally renowned chiropractors, with each offering their respective expertise in research and clinical practice to the conversation.
