The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) announces that Dr. Geoff Gelley has been awarded a Ph.D. in Applied Health Sciences from the University of Manitoba

Dr. Geoff Gelley successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis on November 30, 2022 at the University of Manitoba.

Dr. Gelley's dissertation was titled "Motor performance of participants with chronic neck pain and asymptomatic participants pre- and post-spinal manipulation using separate eye and neck movement Fitts' tasks."

Co-supervisors were Dr. Steven Passmore (Faculty of Kinesiology & Recreation Management) and Dr. Brian MacNeil (College of Rehabilitation Sciences), and the examination committee included Dr. Walter Herzog (Faculty of Kinesiology, and Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Calgary), Dr. Kristine Cowley (Department of Physiology & Pathophysiology), and Dr. Cheryl Glazebrook (Faculty of Kinesiology & Recreation Management).
