Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a national network of hospitals focusing on complex and advanced stage cancer and known for their comprehensive, fully integrated approach to cancer treatment, opened CTCA  at Southeastern Regional Medical Center (Southeastern) in Newnan, Georgia with licensed chiropractors offering chiropractic services to all patients.  As at CTCA at Southeastern and the other four CTCA  hospitals located in Chicago, Philadelphia,  Phoenix and Tulsa, chiropractic services are available to all patients as part of the Patient Empowered Care   model, where each member of the integrated team comes to the patient – all part of what they call the Mother Standard of care.

Dr. James Rosenberg, National Director of Chiropractic Care at CTCA, encourages patients to make chiropractic care part of their treatment plan.

He says, “Chiropractic care is one of the most commonly practiced and widely accepted therapies utilized today. And at CTCA, it’s a piece of the puzzle. It’s another way in which we’re taking care of the body as a whole.”

“Chiropractic care at CTCA is an important piece to the integrated healthcare approach by providing patients with an evidence-based, low risk approach to care,” shares Dr. Rosenberg, happily interjecting that all CTCA chiropractors currently have a patient waiting list. “A steadfast commitment to excellence continues to fuel the demand for our services.”

Chiropractors can provide physicals

Chiropractors may now provide pre-participation sports physicals to children in the Wichita Falls Independent School District for all secondary grades.

The belated approval came Monday, just a few months after WFISD board members barred chiropractors from giving the same physicals.

Until Monday, WFISD approved only medical exams given by physicians, licensed physician assistants or registered nurse practitioners.

WFISD board members changed the policy in a 6-1 vote. Board member Allyson Flack cast the one dissenting vote.

The policy change became effective immediately, according to Kenny Catney, WFISD athletic director.

The new policy reflects the same rules practiced by the University Interscholastic League.

During the years, chiropractors have had an in-and-out relationship with WFISD, according to board member Reginald Blow. This was the second time in his tenure that he’s voted on letting chiropractors examine students.

In past years, chiropractors were approved to give sports physicals to junior high students only. (more…)
