Chiropractic as the Primary Spine Care Provider
My name is Dr. Kevin Leach and I’d like to share with you my background & training; and what I focus on specifically in my Practice.
A link to my C.V., background and training is above for your convenience.
I specialize in the Diagnosis and Management of biomechanical conditions related to the spine & non-specific spine pain. You can think about me as a Primary Spine Care doctor.
I examine, treat, order imaging and triage my patients with specific or anatomical spine pain and co-manage them with other specialists.
I emphasize diagnosis being the highest priority using posture, palpation, ortho/neuro tests and Radiographic motion and biomechanical studies. These exams will determine whether they need to be triaged to another provider, like a physical therapist, a neurologist, a neurosurgeon or another specialist; OR whether they need conservative Chiropractic care; OR possibly both.
I have advanced certification in whiplash biomechanics & injury traumatology from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. This certification involves:
–In-depth reviews on scientific literature on motor vehicle collisions supporting whiplash injuries and conditions associated with motor vehicle collisions
–Injuries incurred at High-Speed, Low-speed & little to no damage collisions from Mild traumatic brain injury and disc herniations to injured joints, muscles, ligaments etc.
–Patient management, treatment and triage in clinical and med-legal aspects of such cases..
My practice processes all PIP or Personal Injury Protection administrative paperwork so your office won’t have to deal with any of that.
I’m currently in continued training for Trauma Team Certification by the Academy of Chiropractic with courses completed in MRI Spine Credentialing, Personal Injury Care and Triaging the traumatic and non-traumatic patient.
I’m part of a National Research Initiative on Cooperative Spine Care in the Seattle/Sno-King area with the goal of bringing evidence-based research, from medical journals to medical offices that support conservative Chiropractic Care.
If you’re curious about my treatment technique, look on the website under the “Why NUCCA?” menu
Here in my practice, patients with anatomical or biomechanical spine pain and dysfunction can be diagnosed, managed, triaged and treated. It is a Primary Spine Care practice that the medical profession utilizes for conservative spine care.
There is a video presentation below my presentation above that goes into more detail and research on how you can utilize qualified doctors of Chiropractic in your practice.
Please, if you have any questions or need to refer a patient over to the practice, call the office and we’ll get them in ASAP.
If you’re interested in working together at a higher level, I’d love to meet you. Call the office here and get in touch with me.
Thanks, and take care.
