How does a Chiropractor become a part of your healthcare team? Firstly you are the centerpiece, next and most commonly the lead Healthcare provider is your GP. GPs have access to Specialists, Prescription medications, Vaccinations, and broad knowledge of health complaints. As a Chiropractor, I have a narrow width of interest but deeper knowledge in that I focus on Spine related conditions only. So in an integrated model of healthcare either with or without a referral from your GP being necessary the focus is on your complaint of lower back, neck, headaches, radiating or referred pain. There is a growing body of research highlighting the effectiveness of Chiropractic care for spine-related conditions in collaborative care models. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2680417
