Yes, there is a growing trend of obstetricians, pediatricians and family doctors referring patients for chiropractic care as they see the benefits of spinal adjustments. They recognize that this is out of the scope of their practice.
Are chiropractors anti-medical doctors? No, your family wellness chiropractor recognizes the important role that a medical doctor plays in your family’s health and believes in a team approach. When your son or daughter needs medical attention, that’s where your chiropractor will encourage you to go.
Are chiropractors anti-drug? No, but they recognize that a body that is functioning properly may not need drugs. The decision to use or discontinue medications or over-the-counter drugs is between the parent and their medical advisor.
What if my medical doctor tells me not to take my children to a chiropractor? Many obstetricians, pediatricians and family practitioners are beginning to see the benefits of chiropractic care for children, but there still are a great number of medical doctors that have not accepted the facts. For every doctor who tells you that chiropractic care is dangerous or a placebo for children, you’ll find a handful that will tell you that it’s perfectly safe and beneficial. The final decision is up to you.
