Supporting Your Patients

Nearly one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson's Disease. As a chiropractor, how can you help patients who have been diagnosed? What should you do if a patient shows symptoms, but hasn't been diagnosed? What do you need to know about treating someone who is experiencing tremors?

Dr. Mike Powell addressed a number of questions that can help DCs support patients in their practice, including:

  • What are some of the things you might see when a person is progressing but not diagnosed yet?
  • Is there anything that can be done for the patient that is exhibiting signs that they may have but not yet qualified for diagnosis?
  • What is the role of chiropractic adjustment with Parkinson's?
  • The role of exercise and nutrition in managing Parkinson’s.
