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.

It's not news that chiropractors worldwide recognize the need for greater respect from the public, other health care professionals and various policymakers. What many people say is the missing key to solve this perceived inequity is our lack of general public trust which would permit our self-governance. When the public fully trusts a profession, then truth is what that profession says it is. The professional group defines itself and, without any fanfare or undue prodding, the public accepts this truth. That is the trust that marks cultural authority. Chiropractors have understood that this is a barrier for many years and many chiropractors have set out to build our cultural authority. In this episode, we speak with Dr. Michael Farrell, a chiropractor from the Buffalo, NY region on that subject.
