Dr. Christine Goertz, the Senior Scientific Advisor for the American Chiropractic Association, the leading professional association representing chiropractors in the United States joins eHealth Radio and the Chiropractor & Health News Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Christine Goertz discuss the following:

  • What is the Choosing Wisely campaign and how can it help chiropractic patients achieve the best care possible?
  • Two of ACA’s recommendations are related to reducing X-ray exposure. Can you tell me more about that? What do patients need to know?
  • The third recommendation says to avoid using therapies like heat, cold, electrical stimulation and ultrasound alone. Why is that? Many people find that those are quick and easy ways to find pain relief.
  • The fourth recommendation deals with chronic pain and mental health. Tell us more about that recommendation...and about the connection between chronic pain and conditions such as depression and anxiety.
  • The last recommendation cautions against long-term use of very common items -- lumbar supports or lumbar braces – for the treatment or prevention of low-back pain. How are these items helpful for acute pain but maybe less so for long-term conditions?
  • Where can patients go to find a good chiropractor?

 

Dr. Christine Goertz, DC, PhD, currently chairs the American Chiropractic Association’s Committee on Quality Assurance and Accountability. Goertz is also the Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy at Palmer College of Chiropractic and Chief Executive Officer of the Spine Institute for Quality (Spine IQ.)

In March 2017, Goertz accepted the prestigious Scott Haldeman Award for Outstanding Research by the World Federation of Chiropractic on behalf of the Palmer College Research Team for conducting a large-scale, multi-site clinical trial which studied the effectiveness of chiropractic care for active-duty military personnel with low-back pain.

For over 25 years, Goertz has addressed multidisciplinary science and health policy issues at the state and federal levels, and has served as a member of the American Medical Association’s Measurement Advisory Committee and a program officer of the NIH National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), where she managed a portfolio focused on musculoskeletal disease, pain, and health services research.  She is a member of the NIH/NCCIH National Advisory Council as well as a Fellow of the International College of Chiropractors.
