Dr. Ted Showalter Confirmed A “Trauma Team Member” By Academy Of Chiropractic

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Dr. Ted Showalter, a chiropractor at 2605 Jenkins Road, Suite 2 in Chattanooga, has been confirmed as a “Trauma Team Member” by the Academy of Chiropractic, a nationally recognized research and academic organization.

"Dr. Showalter has undergone rigorous training related to spine and trauma and is now formally qualified to diagnose or manage all spine cases," officials said.

According to Dr. Mark Studin, the clinical director for the Academy of Chiropractic, “Dr. Showalter joins an elite group of chiropractors nationally that that has completed an extensive program in triaging the injured, MRI spine interpretation, spinal orthopedics, early detection for stroke, spinal biomechanical engineering and accident reconstruction for motor vehicle accidents. This recognition, which represents a level of clinical training, certifies that Dr. Showalter is the best of the best through clinical excellence, and I am proud to add him as our newest member.

“As research evolves, the current scientific literature verifies that chiropractic, when utilized as the first provider significantly reduces disability in the workplace, overall pain, prevents recurring injuries and improves function in almost every aspect of life. Equally important, the scientific literature concludes that when chiropractic is considered as a first option for spine care, the need and use of opiates decreases, which contributes to help eradicate the opiate crisis in our society.”

Dr. Showalter said he has professional relationships and collaborates with a vast array of medical surgeons and physicians as part of the team that manages spine cases, as clinically indicated.
