Helping your patients achieve their best health is a team effort. Chiropractors are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat issues affecting the musculoskeletal (MSK) and nervous system. They can help patients manage their MSK pain. For patients with conditions outside their scope of practice, chiropractors give informed referrals to physicians, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals. They collaborate with them to support their patients’ ongoing care, as required.
Helping Your Patients Manage their MSK Pain
Often patients with chronic conditions, illnesses or injuries, also have MSK challenges, which add to their pain and limit their mobility. For these patients, an interprofessional approach works particularly well.
