Purpose:

Pilot study design that operationalizes the multimodal manner of care while evaluating changes in depression symptoms, dysmetria, and balance for medication non-responders.


Study summary:

Pilot study design that operationalizes the multimodal manner of care while evaluating changes in depression symptoms, dysmetria, and balance for medication non-responders. This research will provide an initial first step towards answering the following three research questions: 1. Does a multimodal chiropractic applied clinical neuroscience approach to care affect self-reported symptoms of depression? 2. Does a multimodal chiropractic applied clinical neuroscience approach to care affect dysmetria and balance control in a clinically depressed population? 3. Are changes in dysmetria and balance control correlated with a change in depressive symptoms.
