Sherman College of Chiropractic will host the 14th Annual International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS), a peer-reviewed conference on vertebral subluxation research and the philosophy of chiropractic, in Spartanburg, SC, October 7-8, 2017. 

Up to 12 hours of continuing education credit are available. The goal of IRAPS is to bring together leaders in philosophy and research as well as practitioners who are centered on the vertebral subluxation practice, to build a stronger academic community worldwide regarding the subluxation model of chiropractic.

Highlights include the following presentations:

  • Vertebral Subluxation, Critical Thinking, and Evidence-Informed Practice with Christopher Kent, D.C., J.D.

  • What is Radical Science? with Bill Decken, D.C., ’86, D.Ph.CS

  • Vertebral Subluxation Models & Definitions: Is There Really Anything New? with Matt McCoy, D.C., M.P.H.

  • Pragmatic Research, Quality of Life and Saltogenesis Research with Joel Alcantara, D.C.

  • Resolution of Low Back Pain and GERD in a 20 Year-Old Male Patient Following Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care: A Case Report with Charmaine Herman, D.C., ’09
