For Primary Care Providers

Connect

Some of your patients may benefit from conservative pain management strategies. Some need help reducing their disability from acute or chronic MSK conditions.

Collaboration helps to ensure that patients get the right care at the right time by the right provider. The most common type of collaboration between chiropractors and primary care providers occurs through referral and clinical reporting.

Inform

As a referring physician, or other primary care provider, you can expect your patients to receive;

  • Appropriate assessment
  • Diagnosis-including clear active communication to the patient and back to you as the referring primary care provider
  • An evidence-informed plan of management utilizing patient-centred modules of care, including; education and advice, rehabilitative exercise, manual therapies, and tri age/referral (if necessary)
