Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

In this issue of D.C. Tracts, our contributors discuss...

contemporary information related to chiropractic care involved in Workers’ Compensation. According to a National Board of Chiropractic Examiner’s survey, approximately 10% of chiropractors in the United States provide care with focus on occupational health. Thus, an understanding of the role of chiropractic care for the injured worker is imperative for successful practice.

Drs. Glenn Crafts and Morgan Young provide a Feature Article and Audio Lectures outlining the documentation and clinical requirements for managing the injured worker. In addition, Drs. Brian Gleberzon and Brad Muir examine the importance patient health records, and the role of non-conservative care for managing injured workers.

I trust that as the reader, you will find this issue of D.C. Tracts both informative and interesting, refining your clinical expertise and patient services.
