Duration of Care for Correction of Vertebral Subluxation
Vertebral Subluxation in Chiropractic Practice Guidelines ~ August 2004
.
Chiropractors are encouraged to employ a clinically driven variable length of care format in which the duration of care is determined by each individual patient’s progress toward meeting measurable objectives, set in individualized care plans and identified during individual assessment. This application ensures that patients are not over- or underutilizing a health-care resource and are currently receiving the best possible care.
