Furthering the Cause of Chiropractic Research and Education

In today’s environment, research is not only expected but also required by policymaking organizations. For research to be taken seriously in the world outside of chiropractic, it must be ideologically blind. That is why NCMIC supports research without bias toward philosophy, technique, college or statute.

In 2003, NCMIC founded the NCMIC Foundation, a nonprofit 501(3)(c) entity, dedicated to ensuring the availability of dollars for chiropractic research and education. This chiropractic research funding has been comprehensive and far-reaching.

The NCMIC Foundation also provides grants to dual-degreed Doctors of Chiropractic to increase the number of people who recognize the value of chiropractic in the healthcare delivery system. Learn more about the NCMIC Foundation’s extensive support by selecting the links below.


To participate in today’s challenging healthcare environment, ongoing research is necessary to demonstrate the effectiveness, safety and cost efficiency of chiropractic and alternative healthcare. 


One important goal of the NCMIC Foundation is to invest in the training of D.C.s as they obtain advanced degrees.
