Did you know that over 85% of medical doctors report that patients have asked them about chiropractic care? Yet, only 11% of medical doctors report making a formal chiropractic referral. It’s time to bridge that great divide!
The bottom line is that primary care physicians have limited tools available to them for the treatment of spine related complaints. Many are not currently referring to chiropractors because of their limited understanding of chiropractic.
By building referral relationships with these doctors you will not only add patients to your practice, but you will be helping your community members, friends, and neighbors receive one of the most safe and effective healthcare options of the last 100 years (that’s chiropractic!).
Building relationships with other physicians in your community can provide explosive practice growth for your practice. While the ebb and flow of technology is difficult to predict, the rapport and development of interdisciplinary referral relationships can last a lifetime. Even the most introverted chiropractor can implement a simple system of outreach which is effective, elegant, and affordable.
