On Friday, March 29th, chiropractors from the University of Bergen and researchers from the Norwegian chiropractic association NKF/ELIB visited NIKKB and the University of Southern Denmark to discuss and get inspiration for a Norwegian education in chiropractic and the setting up of a knowledge hub for musculoskeletal disease.
A total of 9 chiropractors and researchers travelled to Odense. They were treated to a tour of the university and the Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics facilities. Following the tour, they got inspiration through talks by Henrik Hein Lauridsen from the Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, Jan Hartvigsen from the Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics and NIKKB and Henrik Wulff Christensen from NIKKB. Ole Skøtt, The Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, was present at a part of the meeting.
An education in chiropractic in Norway will be only the second chiropractic education in Scandinavia. Until it has become a reality, the University of Southern Denmark is still the only palace north of the border between Denmark and Germany, which offers a chiropractic education. A knowledge hub in musculoskeletal disease financed by a national chiropractic association and the public sector is also a unique Danish design.
