'Good Chiropractors' or Osteopathic M.D.'s?
Funny,I hear a lot about Chiropractic,but no one notes Osteopathic medicine? THE issue in my mind(and please understand,there's Doctors,and then there are Those Who Cure:Subtle,but Important difference)is how/where are the Doctor's certification credentials born out? How CAN you tell if the Doc knows what's up? References.From Patiennts,obviously,but Also from the local Medical Community.A very capable Chiropractor I've gone to for years is noted,and often reffered by,the local Hospital.He works closely with both Surgeons and P.T.'s,which is very important to one's recovery from a debilitating injury. My previous doctor in this regard was an Osteopathic M.D..He was quite old,in his mid 80's,but far more fit than I am even now at half his age;And that's NOT an exaggeration.He could work small miracles,and I likely wouldn't be riding these days without his care.Moreover,I came away from his office armed with great knowledge of how to maintain my own health. I'd also note I avoided surgery by having him keep me on an excercise regimen that allowed my body to heal itself.If you find that in a crisis of injury that you're not respected in your overall health or treatment planning,time to go elsewhere,and find the doctors who can communicate to each other,and lead you to health.
