Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Applauds Cancer Treatment Centers of America® for their Patient Care Model


Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of hospitals focusing on complex and advanced stage cancer and known for their comprehensive, fully integrated approach to cancer treatment, opened CTCA® at Southeastern Regional Medical Center (Southeastern) in Newnan, Georgia with licensed chiropractors offering chiropractic services to all patients.

As at CTCA® at Southeastern and the other four CTCA® hospitals located in Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa, chiropractic services are available to all patients as part of the Patient Empowered Care® model, where each member of the integrated team comes to the patient – all part of what they call the Mother Standard® of care.

James Rosenberg, D.C., national director of chiropractic care at CTCA® at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern), and the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the value of chiropractic care, point to the initial inclusion of chiropractic services as the result of increased utilization and positive patient outcomes at CTCA® hospitals.

“Overall patient health improves with the noninvasive, non-drug approach of chiropractic care,” says Dr. Rosenberg, noting that the majority of CTCA® patients suffer significant stress on their neuro-musculoskeletal systems due to cancer and affiliated treatments, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy. “Doctors of chiropractic are able to reduce stress to the nervous system by providing conservative care to musculoskeletal dysfunctions, which helps to improve the patient's healing ability and functionality.”

Working collectively with all CTCA® care team members to provide the highest level of patient care, doctors of chiropractic help to open up pathways to facilitate improved quality of life and optimized outcomes for patients. Specifically, chiropractic care addresses the interrelationship between the neuro-muscuoloskeletal system and all other aspects of the body.

“Chiropractic care at CTCA® is an important piece to the integrated healthcare approach by providing patients with an evidence-based, low risk approach to care,” shares Dr. Rosenberg, happily interjecting that all CTCA® chiropractors currently have a patient waiting list. “A steadfast commitment to excellence continues to fuel the demand for our services.”
