Dynamic Chiropractic – August 1, 1990, Vol. 08, Issue 16

First World Congress on Biomechanics

Chiropractic Will Be There

By Paul J. Osterbauer, DC

The field of biomechanics is growing and changing so rapidly, that it has become necessary to gather the world's experts in one place to discuss and present the latest in the field.

The First World Congress on Biomechanics will be held August 30-September 4, 1990 at the University of California, San Diego. Representatives from the countries of Bulgaria, Japan, India, Denmark, USSR, China, and more will be in attendance and will be contributing to interesting presentations, followed by discussion forums.

This congress will include, for the first time, a chiropractic presentation. Arlan W. Fuhr, D.C. and Paul J. Osterbauer, D.C.; Dr. Jack Winters, internationally renowned muscle modeling expert from Arizona State University (ASU); Joseph Peles, a Ph.D. candidate from ASU; and Kathy Derickson, a graduate engineer from ASU comprise a team of authors who will present their abstract entitled Relations Between Neck Muscle Activity and Screw Axis Parameters of the Head. This abstract represents a new way of estimating kinematics of neck movement in three dimensions.

Included among the 1200 other papers that will be presented are topics such as: dental mechanics, orthopedic and musculoskeletal mechanics, muscle mechanics and sports medicine, and cardiovascular mechanics.

This congress will undoubtedly be another exciting example of the mutual benefits of collaboration between chiropractic, other scientific disciplines, and the university systems. For registration information please contact:
