Ep 31: Building Chiropractic/Orthopedic Relationships with Dr. James Eubanks

James Eubanks DC, MS, CSCS practices in Charlotte, NC and is playing the role of non-surgical spine specialist in connection to ongoing training at OrthoCarolina, one of the five largest orthopedic groups in the US. As a patient-centered, evidence based spine care specialist, Dr. Eubanks is learning the dynamics of triage and acts as spine gatekeeper, a role that is not filled by any other professional in the group.  Dr. Eubanks provides us with a sort of Chiropractic/Orthopedic Relations 101 and informs other chiropractors what we can do to gain respect in an orthopedist's eyes and possibly forge a similar path.
