Our Doctor is a current member of the American Academy of Spine Physicians. The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is an organization comprised of chiropractic physicians and neurosurgeons committed to improving the quality of spinecare through cooperative and conservative efforts. Spine and spine-related disorders represent one of the most common problems encountered in healthcare.
Chiropractic physicians and neurosurgeons both have extensive training in spinal anatomy, spinal biomechanics, diseases of the spine and neurology as it relates to the spine, thus the basis for cooperative care. Care for the full spectrum of spine disorders can be addressed through a cooperative and conservative approach between the chiropractic physician and the neurosurgeon.
Back pain consistently ranks as one of the top reasons for employee absenteeism and afflicts approximately eight of every ten Americans during their lifetime. The complexity and prevalence of spinal disorders has led to a growing demand for interdisciplinary, conservative spinecare.The AASP is preparing its members to meet these growing demands at all levels.
