Professor Christopher Good
Christopher Good is an Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences in the College of Chiropractic. He studied biology at Ursinus College, near Philadelphia, then began chiropractic studies at Texas Chiropractic College. He earned the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, graduating summa cum laude in 1982 from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Good served in private practice in New Jersey before accepting a faculty appointment at the Anglo-European Chiropractic College. During this time, he earned a Master's in Education from the University of Southampton (England). He later moved to New York Chiropractic College, where he served as full professor. He joined the UB faculty in 2006. Good's research focuses on teaching and learning application of chiropractic techniques of manipulation. He also has published in the areas of spinal biomechanics and treatment of degenerative conditions. Good's philosophy of teaching chiropractic focuses on the role of chiropractors as physical medicine doctors. Building on the neuro-muscular-spinal focus, says Good, chiropractors serve as resources for health, nutrition, and dietary wellness issues.
