Chiropractic Research

Chiropractic Australia is an organisation that supports evidence based practice and as such is a strong advocate for high quality research. Through its related research fund, COCA Research Ltd, Chiropractic Australia funds research projects and chiropractic related PhD scholarships which directly support the chiropractic profession as well as related health care professions.

Our research goal is to continually develop and improve best practice methods and skills which will ultimately lead to better community health through quality care and also strengthen chiropractic’s inter-professional relationships and integration into the broader health care community. By becoming a member of Chiropractic Australia you promote these objectives.
