As a Chiropractor, some new patients will inevitably need more care than you can provide, or they won’t respond to treatments as well as you think they should. In those cases, to whom and where can you refer those patients for care?
Medical Treatments Compatible with Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors regularly see car accident victims, as chiropractic typically provides excellent results after this traumatic incident. However, the fact is that some car accident victims need additional treatments outside of the scope of chiropractic care. The problem, again, is this; to whom can you refer those patients knowing that they’ll get the correct treatment? Also, a medical office where they won’t be bombarded with negative information about chiropractic?
Stridewell Provides Medical Treatments for Your Valued Chiropractic Patients
When Chiropractors in (City and State?) seek additional medical treatments for their patients, they come to Stridewell. We add a layer of medical treatment and medical diagnoses on top of your chiropractic diagnosis, including:
- Concussion Evaluation
- Spinal and Orthopedic Consultation and Evaluation
- Interventional Pain Management
- Surgery recommendations
While being treated at Stridewell, we stay in constant communication with you and your staff regarding our findings and treatment recommendations. After their consult, if nothing is necessitating medical treatment, your patients will then be referred back to you for continuing chiropractic care.
MRI Imaging To Be 100% Certain of your Diagnosis
Here’s a fact; hidden issues are a considerable risk when it comes to chiropractic care. It’s not uncommon for a fractured cervical vertebra, for example, to be missed on an x-ray. One excellent reason to refer your patients who’ve been in a significant car wreck to Stridwell is simply to have an additional, medically sound, 2nd opinion. Furthermore, when you partner with Stridewell, you get extra legal protection from a medical team working in parallel with your chiropractic treatment plan.
MRIs for High-Risk Neck Patients
Cervical trauma, no matter the doctor, can be severe and seriously tricky. If a patient is in extreme pain with minimal neck mobility, referring them to a medical doctor is a must. When you refer those patients to Stridewell, we assess them thoroughly and perform the necessary imaging to diagnose the problem with certainty. This can lower your legal jeopardy significantly.
Stridewell Provides Cervical Flexion and Extension X-rays
If your chiropractic clinic isn’t set up for X-rays, Stridewell is an excellent choice for neck trauma referrals. We provide cervical flexion and extension imaging that, as you know, give a much clearer view of the problem at hand. (Many medical partner offices simply don’t provide these images.) The result? Patients who are better educated about their particular problem and treatment options. Better overall results, also, as treatment plans can be molded to a patient’s specific needs.
Stridewell- Your PI Case Partner
As you know, many auto accident injury victims will seek out an attorney to work with while they receive chiropractic treatments for their injuries. A competent lawyer is essential to their case and any settlement they might receive, of course. Also vitally important is a sound chiropractic diagnosis, although frankly, that’s not always enough.
At Stridewell, we provide a complete medical diagnosis that included a recommendation for chiropractic care. This is extremely helpful, especially if the patient had a severe case and needed long-term chiropractic treatment for their injuries. It will allow the patient’s attorneys to help them secure a higher settlement for their pain, suffering, and medical costs. This, of course, can also help you as a chiropractor to get the payments you deserve for your excellent care.
