Did you know:

  • Over 11 million Canadians suffer with back, neck and shoulder issues – each year
  • The #1 cause of disability in the world is MSK (musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction)

MSK pain and dysfunction can be relieved, improved and sometimes even eliminated with chiropractic treatment.

That’s why we need your help. We’re the CCRF – short for Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation. We invest in national evidence-based research to provide solutions that improve the health of those burdened with musculoskeletal pain and disability.
