When people work together as a team towards a common goal, each individual member is able to focus on their strengths. Perhaps the most important hallmark of a great team is great communication. High-level communication is the key that allows everyone to bring their specific skills and talents together to achieve more working together than they ever could alone. And great teams do exist outside of sports and business…have you thought about your healthcare team lately?
Why it Matters:
These healthcare teams are part of what’s known as a “multi-disciplinary” approach – each healthcare provider focuses on their specialty, and everyone works together to keep the athletes healthy, happy, and playing at their best. Chiropractors are considered an essential part of these teams because of our focus on injury recovery and prevention, and overall performance. Shifting treatment away from drugs and medication is also another great benefit of using this team approach.
- A high-quality healthcare team can offer you a more personalized path to get and stay well.
- Research indicates that Chiropractic patients are up to 55% less likely to fill an opioid prescription.
Like any good team, you want to recruit the best players, or in this case – the best doctors. Our practice has built relationships with many top doctors in the area that also believe in a team approach to wellness. If you’re looking for a recommendation, just ask!
