Chiropractors as Spinal Care Primary Providers

Chiropractors as Primary Spine Care Providers

Should Chiropractor's be the Primary Spinal Care Providers? I believe that most chiropractic colleges today have trained their students on alternative spinal options for patient care, diagnostic testing, surgical options and how and when to have a referral network with other medical doctors.Many obstacles would lie in the path of this transition like you stated, but the other obstacles would seem to be the differences in various chiropractic techniques, which seem to keep the chiropractic profession as a whole separate at times on which types are considered more successful for various types of conditions. Despite the varying opinions among chiropractors, the global acceptance of chiropractic care as a whole by the medical profession my be the biggest hinderance overall, and their avoidance to integrate alternative medicine options into the mainstream. I believe all of these obstacles are possible to overcome, and who better to serve as the primary spine specialist than the specialists who deal with the spine the most, the chiropractors.
