Associate Professor, Clinical Practice
Dr. Mohsen Radpasand came to the United States as a student in 1976 and earned a bachelor's degree from Iowa State University in 1981. He went on to earn both a master of science and doctor of chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic. After a few years of working in chiropractic medicine in Ohio, Dr. Radpasand moved to Iran to study medicine at Tehran University of Medical Sciences. During his time there, he was a very active proponent for the legalization and recognition of chiropractic medicine as a primary health care profession in Iran. He was an official delegate of Iran to the World Federation of Chiropractic from 1986 to 1992. Several years later, in 2000, the profession was legalized in Iran.
After directing and practicing for several years in his own multidisciplinary clinic, which integrated allopathic and alternative medicine, Dr. Radpasand moved back to the USA to do clinical research and eventually to teach.
Prior joining the faculty at NUHS, he was an assistant professor in the D'Youville College chiropractic department, in Buffalo, NY. He joined NUHS in September 2012, as an associate professor in the department of clinical practice, and is currently the faculty clinician at the NUHS Whole Health Center - Pinellas Park in Florida.
Dr. Radpasand is a reviewer for the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, the ACC-RAC Conference, as well as other medical journals. His clinical research interest is focused on CAM treatments - especially manipulation to alleviate pain and disability. He has published articles in JMPT, JCM, and the e-journal of American Academy of Pain in 2009.
