Medical physicians and chiropractors are advancing their collaborative efforts as research continues to validate the safety and utility of spinal manipulation for select musculoskeletal disorders. A recent study identified the fundamental values of a successful MD/DC relationship.
Chiropractors who work with medical physicians typically display “an evidence-based approach to patient care plus the ability to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team.” This MD/DC team approach has a direct positive impact on the new metrics of healthcare success:
“Delivery of chiropractic services was perceived to have high value among patients, medical providers, and administration. Patient clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, provider productivity, and cost offset were identified as markers of clinic success.” (1)
As next-generation chiropractors, we embody the evidence-based team approach to patient care. We are grateful for the opportunity to co-manage your cases and will work hard to maintain your trust.
