Medical – Chiropractic Relations: A Clue

The referral pad from “The Work Clinic” in Tukwila has check boxes for the provider types that the medical doctors in that clinic refer to. There is one for PT, one for OT (that’s occupational therapist), one for Hand Therapy, Speech Therapy, and finally one for Massage.

At the bottom of each referral page are the words, “Convenient, comprehensive, compassionate, 1 on 1 care”. Comprehensive? Really?

The byline on their website reads “Comprehensive Occupational Health Services”. How nice. The marketing people always get it right.

This is just one tiny example of how invisible chiropractic care is in the minds of most people, Medical doctors in particular. We do what we can to build bridges between the professions but the distance between real integration and political (and legal) correctness is beyond the average person’s imagination. Awareness is growing though, so there is always hope. And the results of an addiction to mainstream medical care are becoming more and more obvious.



  1. There is a saying, “The opposite of love is not hate, it is apathy”. Being the the antagonist or focus of the medical professions disdain as it was orchestrated by the AMA a few years ago is preferable to be totally ignored. Maybe we should try to antagonize them more!? 🙂

  2. After 12 years as a volunteer fighting for the cause, I no longer have the energy nor the patience for resisting. I do occasionally like to shine a light on the situation in the hope that more people will notice and be more aware.
