I can answer questions about musculoskeletal-based, evidence-based chiropractic practice.

Experience in the area

13 years of chiropractic practice; currently practicing in an integrative medicine clinic.


West Hartford Group, a think-tank that has put forth a model of chiropractic care that is consistent with that of the World Federation of Chiropractic and the Chiropractic Strategic Planning Conference. This model is of the chiropractic physician as the spinal health care expert within the health care system, i.e. society’s non-surgical spine specialist.

What do you like about this subject?

Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments, including spinal manipulation.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Interdisciplinary cooperation between the medical and chiropractic professions in an integrative medicine setting.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

90% of all skilled spinal manipulation in North America is performed by licensed Doctors of Chiropractic. 95% of chiropractic patients have musculoskeletal pain conditions (e.g. back pain, neck pain, headache, pain in the shoulder, arms or legs) as their main complaint.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Like any other profession, there are good chiropractors and bad chiropractors. A good chiropractor is able to use the best available evidence to support a recommendation for patient care, tempered with the informed patient's wishes and the practitioner's clinical experience.
