The CCRF is delighted to announce that Dr. John Srbely, DC, PhD has joined the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Srbely holds the "CCRF Professorship in Neurophysiology and Spine Mechanics" at the University of Guelph in Ontario. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, in the College of Biological Sciences.

Dr. Srbely's research interests focus on the neurophysiology of myofascial pain, more specifically the neurophysiologic mechanisms of central sensitization and the impact of these mechanisms on the clinical presentation and pathophysiology of musculoskeletal pain. This research will substantiate the important role of chiropractic manipulation and manual therapy in the treatment of chronic and myofascial pain.

Dr. Srbely is actively collaborating with world renowned physicist Dr. John Bush at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the investigation of the biophysical aspects of myofascial and chronic pain. In addition, he collaborates with Dr. Leah Bent at the University of Guelph and Dr. Jim Dickey at the University of Western Ontario.

In 2005, Dr. Srbely received the CCA Young Investigator Award and in 2006 he received the Graduate Scholarship Award in the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Science at the University of Guelph.

More recently, Dr. Srbely was awarded a prestigious Canadian Arthritis Network (CAN) 2009 Pilot Grant in the amount of $48,100 for his project entitled "Effects of ultrasound on pain and function in osteoarthritis" and is a Network Investigator for the Canadian Arthritis Network.

The Canadian Arthritis Network (CAN) is a not-for-profit organization that supports integrated, transdisciplinary research and development. CAN is the single point of contact that links 170 of Canada's leading arthritis researchers and clinicians, 45 Canadian academic institutions, The Arthritis Society, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research's Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis, and government.
