Media Advisory - Top world spine & central nervous system researchers meet here this weekend



    RICHMOND, B.C., April 26 /CNW/ - A conference opening in downtown
Vancouver on Friday will bring together some of the foremost research
scientists in the world today dealing with neurophysiological issues.
    The British Columbia Chiropractic Association (BCCA), with the support of
the School of Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia and the
School of Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University, will host distinguished
doctors and scientists from several universities and major hospitals,
including both local institutions, the University of Toronto, the University
of Ottawa, Toronto Western Research Institute, Harvard, the University of
Calgary and the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
    Topics ranging from whiplash to the regeneration of damaged disks, and
from multidisciplinary models of patient care to the nature of pain will be on
the agenda.
    BCCA Executive Director Dr. Don Nixdorf, who organized the conference,
said: "I don't think so many of the top spine and neuromusculoskeletal
researchers have ever been together at the same event. We are flattered that
they have accepted our invitation, but the great attraction to them is
obviously to compare notes with each other. We are the beneficiaries - an
unprecedented opportunity for the rest of us."

    
    The conference, titled RESEARCH 2007: The Spine Care Revolution, begins
Friday and ends Saturday night.

    DATE & TIME:    Friday 1 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. and
                    Saturday 9 am until 4:45 p.m.

    PLACE:          Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Hotel,
                    1128 West Hastings Street
