Over the past two years, NimmoEd has completed two scientific research projects and is currently in the middle of our cutting-edge third research project. To explain the research that we are currently undertaking, we’d like to explain the two prior projects first. All of the research that Dr. Jeffery Cohen conducts is in partnership with New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) and Dr. Terry Koo, a renowned reseracher at NYCC.
The first research project utilized a highly specialized Tissue Ultrasound Palpation System (TUPS) to objectively measure tissue elasticity, an indicator of pain and disability in muscle tissue. The research project was presented and awarded the first prize in the research basic science category at the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Educational and Research Agenda Conference in 2011. Follow-up research using the TUPS, the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and the OWSWESTRY scale to measure pain and disability produced results showing that one treatment of NIMMOCARE reduces pain and disability far better than currently practiced methods for treating trigger points.
Drs. Cohen and Koo published their findings and presented their work at the World Federation of Chiropractic 11th Biennial Congress in Rio de Janiero. Their paper, “Immediate Effect of Nimmo Receptor Tonus Technique on Muscle Elasticity, Pain Perception, and Disability in Subjects with Chronic Low Back Pain” discusses the positive result of the Nimmo technique on pain.
NimmoEd has provided full funding for each research project, and the team members on the project are providing their services pro bono. Building upon these reserach projects, Dr. Cohen and Dr. Koo’s third reserach collaboration will focus on visually identifying trigger points in the body using the Supersonic Imagine Shearwave Elastography Machine. We will be regularly updating on the progress of the research…keep checking the blog for updates.
