On The Other Hand Podcast: Chiropractic/Orthopedic Relations 101

James Eubanks DC, MS, CSCS practices in Charlotte, NC and is playing the role of non-surgical spine specialist in connection to ongoing training at OrthoCarolina, one of the five largest orthopedic groups in the US. As a patient-centered, evidence based spine care specialist, Dr. Eubanks is learning the dynamics of triage and acts as spine gatekeeper, a role that is not filled by any other professional in the group.  Dr. Eubanks provides us with a sort of Chiropractic/Orthopedic Relations 101 and informs other chiropractors what we can do to gain respect in an orthopedist’s eyes and possibly forge a similar path.

Interviewed by On The Other Hand’s Dr. Brett Kinsler.

    Great interview Dr. Kinsler. As I listened to the interview I became impressed with Dr. Eubanks. Not only does he apprear to be intelligent but also very logical. Personally, I’m in agreement with Dr. Eubanks about the role/future of evidence-based chiropractic treatment. I don’t approach chiropractic as a alternative but as an option for non-operative neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. That’s the teaching philosophy at Northwestern. Again, I agree with Dr. Eubanks that diagnosing and patient relationship are two important qualities that chiropractors must strengthen/ maintain so to be different than physical therapists( not to replicate services). I hope you will consider doing a part II/follow-up interview with Dr. Eubanks. I would be interested in his opinion regarding expanding the scope of practice in chiropractic, specifically prescribing medication.

    We need to get to the basics that’s the only thing we have… We move the bone and god does the healing. Anything else can be performed by other professions. I went to Northwestern.
