With so much misinformation and “fake news” floating around today, it’s refreshing to see some of our healthcare powerhouses embracing common-sense about quality patient-centered treatment. And furthermore, writing about it so the public has better information to make decisions. Besides, if it comes from Harvard, it must be true. Right?
In the old movie, Cool Hand Luke, the Captain said to Luke, “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.” This has been a major problem with the chiropractic profession since our inception. So many people who’ve never been to a chiropractor have simply no idea what it is that we do and why we do it. In fact, the rest of what I like to refer to as the “Health Care Universe”, which includes other health care providers and payers, has very little understanding of what we do or why we do it. Why not?
