0%-20% I rarely refer out to chiropractors or medical doctors as I am usually a last resort to most patients that come through my door.

21%-40% Most of my clients are referred out at some point (beyond the obligatory initial referral.) However they do not necessarily need referral each month.

0%-20% One location I work at is a multi-disciplined place where clients have regular visits with MDs, NPs, and acupuncturists. I don't need to actively refer because the program is set up with visits to everyone already in place. It's a drug and alcohol detox center. I hardly ever refer to chiropractors but I do refer to NDs and massage therapists in both my private practice and this facility.

0%-20% Most of my patients have already sought help from medical providers and come to me as a last resort.

81%-100% All health conditions contain a neurological component. If the neurological component is not addressed and corrected you may not get to the cause of the problem. Realizing that the central nervous system is contained within the spinal column and skull and the specialist in this area is a chiropractor, I have found combining acupuncture and chiropractic care to patients is more benefiscial than acupuncture alone, especially if your treatment goal is to address the root and not just treat the symptom. Working with chiropractors who have a holistic approach have afforded my patients a more comprehensive health care approach and has afforded spinal care that we acupuncturists frankly are not trained to do. Likewise, I would suggest that chiropractors who incorporate acupuncture treatment with their patients will see dramatic clinical results by balancing the meridian system and nervous system.
