At a wonderful banquet at the OceanCliff Resort in Newport, I was elected Vice President of the 90 member Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island. In the coming year, we will be focused on patient choice and physician equality in keeping with the coming changes mandated by Obama Care. There is much work still to be done. Every political/legal discussion in RI centers around reducing healthcare costs, increasing outcomes, and reducing drug dependency. When you look at most of the studies done comparing Chiropractic to Medical Care, these desired goals are met utilizing Chiropractic Care as the treatment of choice especially with neuro-musculoskeletal problems.
