ICPA Research

ICPA Peer Reviewed Published Papers and Current Projects

Current Projects:

The ICPA Research Department has numerous projects underway for this year that span the spectrum of research design. Here are our two on-going venues of research:

1- Practiced Based Research Network (PBRN):

Spearheaded by our Research Director, Dr. Joel Alcantara, our very successful endeavor is the ICPA Practiced Based Research Network (PBRN). It is the largest PBRN in the profession. With the ever-growing international membership of the ICPA as PBRN participants the ICPA/PBRN is unrivaled in reflecting the practice of family wellness chiropractic worldwide. Additionally, many issues that affect the day-to-day chiropractic practice are being addressed.

The ICPA has achieved the status of affiliate member of the National Institute of Health's Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality PBRN. View the certificate of recognition here.
Read more about our PBRN here. To participate, please see here.

2- Case Study Presentations and Publications:

In documenting the expertise of care of chiropractors with children with subluxations and the wide array of co-morbidities, our Research Director, Dr. Joel Alcantara has published numerous case reports/case series on behalf of the ICPA. Please read our list below.
