UCRF Moving Forward to Prove Upper Cervical Procedures

As reported in the latest newsletter (quoted below), the Supine Leg Check Reliability Pilot  Study continues to move forward, after last being reported on this blog in August of 2009.

The Supine leg Check (SLC) Data Collection Pilot was successfully conducted at Life Chiropractic College West (LCCW) on May 22, 2010…

The pilot study data handling protocol proved to be sound assuring that the larger Leg Check study will have quality data for analysis. The ability to maintain data integrity ensuring the collection of high quality secure data establishes a standard for NUCCA research which is critical to results as well as review by important funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health. The data analysis is ongoing with a post study report to be submitted to the UCRF Board of Directors outlining the results and shortly thereafter, and a manuscript submission to an indexed peer reviewed publication to follow.

To help you better understand the pilot program, UCRF has published this handy flow-chart to see how the data collection has progressed.

What does it mean? The supine leg check pilot program helps future UCRF research to be as effective and accurate as possible when it comes to collecting quality data when it matters most: when our hard earned research dollars are being spent in actual research trials.

A supine leg let check pilot program is one way that UCRF is ensuring that research donations by NUCCA members and the public are spent wisely.
