From the desk of Ann Arbor chiropractor, Michael Tannenbaum, D.C.
I wanted to report on a trend I have noticed in the type of patients I'm seeing in my office. My guess is that this is a national trend and I sincerely hope the trend continues to grow. The trend, at least in my office, is that more people that have backgrounds working in the medical industry are using chiropractic care for their own health care needs. I see an ever increasing number of medical doctors, children of medical doctors, siblings of medical doctors and pharmacists in my practice. As it is generally known the medical world and the chiropractic world hasn't always coexisted in harmony. This occurred partially because of different philosophies about health, turf wars and misunderstanding of what each are trying to accomplish. Now though, with time, with more of a focus on wellness and “natural” health care the medical world has become more accepting of chiropractic. I think this is wonderful. My hope is that the medical world will refer their patients to chiropractors just as they would to medical specialists. Certainly, the studies have shown the health and cost effectiveness of chiropractic in helping people get rid of low back pain, neck pain, headaches and so on. In addition, the effectiveness of chiropractic in other areas has been demonstrated in numerous case studies. I think the momentum is just beginning and we will soon see chiropractic take it's rightful place in the health care industry where it is used just as much as medical modalities are used to improve the health of all people.
