Research study volunteers needed!

Do you have headaches caused by a neck problem?

The Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies is currently recruiting volunteers for a Neck-Related Headache Study.

What is the purpose?

The purpose of the study is to see if different combinations of chiropractic treatments can help reduce neck-related headaches.

Headache is one of the most common ailments in the U.S. - nearly 7 million adults report suffering from headaches every other day.

Who can participate?

This study is accepting men and women who:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have headaches that are associated with neck pain, neck stiffness or certain neck movements
  • Are in generally good health

Is there any cost?

There is no cost for participation.

This study is funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medidine (NIH/NCCAM).

What will you be asked to do?

Participants will:

  • Attend an initial visit with a study doctor for a health history, physical exam and X-rays
  • Complete questionnaires and headache diaries
  • Perform tests that measure how your neck moves
  • Attend chiropractic treatment visits 3 times per week for 6 weeks

All care is provided by licensed, experienced clinicians.

Where is the study taking place?

The Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies (WHCCS) is located on the campus of Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. Over the past decade, the WHCCS has received more than $20 million in funding to investigate non-surgical treatments for back and neck conditions.
