How Do Neurosurgeons and Chiropractors Work Together?

Since both neurosurgeons and chiropractic physicians have a neuroscience background, it is no wonder that these two disciplines have come together for cooperative spine care.

If you have persistent or progressive pain, numbness, muscle weakness or abnormal spinal movement, an interdisciplinary approach with the combined expertise of chiropractic physicians and neurosurgeons is going to be very helpful.

The patient benefits of such a cooperative effort include:

  • Early diagnosis
  • Early intervention
  • Broad range of therapeutic options
  • Continuity of care
  • Improved potential for patient recovery.

The benefits of a multidisciplinary team for the patient are enormous. This approach means that all of your healthcare professionals are talking to one another. It won’t be up to you to remember what each doctor said and share that information because each member of your team will already know what the other member is doing. In essence, it takes the burden off of you and onto the healthcare professionals where it belongs.
