Life Chiropractic College West has announced the addition of Charles Woodfield, DC, RPh, as full-time research faculty. Woodfield’s has more than 25 years of research experience in healthcare service, and he was a major contributor to the recent widely publicized paper on hypertension.
Woodfield will propose new research at Life West, serve as a facilitator approaching funding sources, and help build stronger relations with the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) community. Future projects will include further collaboration with George Bakris, MD, of the University of Chicago in pursuit of the validation of the clinical processes and measures used to determine an Atlas misalignment.
Woodfield developed the hypertension study protocol and was a major contributor to the Journal of Human Hypertension publication of the results. Recent investigation has involved a case study in measuring changes of cerebral blood flow resulting from an Atlas correction using Phase Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging Angiography (PC MRA).
