The National Institute of Health (NIH) defines multidisciplinary care as an “integrated team approach to health care in which medical and allied health care professionals consider all relevant treatment options and develop an individual treatment plan for each patient collaboratively”. Doesn’t that sound like the kind of health care that you would want?
I’m currently enrolled in two post-graduate programs that emphasize an integrated approach to health care, including a Primary Spine Practitioner program (PSP) at the University of Pittsburgh. I know the benefits of chiropractic care after having witnessed that in my offices for well over 25 years now. However, I also recognize the need for care that is outside my scope of practice. In fact, I have a virtual “team” of physicians and other professionals who I trust and regularly refer to when the need arises, particularly in cases of trauma. It is impossible to practice adequately in a “silo”. It truly “takes a village” to properly care for patients and I’m proud to be part of the “team”!
Are you in pain? Injured? Give us a call. If we can’t help you then we will get you to someone who can! That is my promise to you.
