The medical view of chiropractic is changing. The biggest impediment to change is the lack of interaction between the professions. Medical doctors who refer to chiropractors do so usually because they know the chiropractor personally and trust them to take good care of their patients, not because they have a chiropractic degree.
Last week, Sara and I spent an hour with General Internal Medical Group in Ballston discussing Musculoskeletal and sports injuries. We reviewed mechanisms of injury and treatment for runners, crossfitters and weightlifters.
I was truly impressed with the doctor’s knowledge on the various topics along with their desire to help each one of their patients recover from injury. The mantra “patient first” and collaboration is alive and well in Arlington.
