Binders, Sensory Evoked Potentials, Continuing Medical Education
Dear Dr Owens,
I listen to your presentations. You mentioned co-managing cord compressions w/o myelopathy. How do you do this w/o losing the patient to the surgeon? It is common here for surgeons to tell patients with cord compression they will be paralyzed w/o surgery. You can only do that once you build a relationship with the surgeon. There are many easy ways to do this, but the most effective is to find the youngest surgeon in the group, preferably one that is just recently out of Fellowship and build a network of chiropractors (ones that you know, but are not in your competitive area) and help BUILD the surgeons practice. It is easy and VERY effective. If and when you want more information on that please let me know and I can help you do that.
Where can I learn more of the test Sensory Evoked Potential EMG? This will give you a lot of information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evoked_potential
Can I view the slides you were referring to in the lecture? Yes, here is the link for you to download. This is for the CME… https://www.box.com/shared/pk9tzya7b1
We have our binders together what’s next? Pick 2-3 of the MDs that are the doctors of the patients that you are seeing. That is where you start. Read Consultation #4 to call, I always PRE-CALLED so that I didnt get there during ab busy time. You will be using the research binder to be “invited” into the MDs office. That is where, in a perfect world you would meet the front desk staff, the office manager then the MD. Sometimes it moves fast, other times it moves slow, but the most important part is to be there 1-2 times per month to build that relationship.
