Chiropractic Case Management

What Does Chiropractic Case Management Mean?

Chiropractic case management has its roots in the chiropractic patient’s clinical presentation and the chiropractic doctor’s training and expertise. The doctor of chiropractic has a fiduciary responsibility to evaluate the patient to determine the entire clinical picture to the best of their ability.

How Do I Show Chiropractic Case Management in My Chiropractic Documentation?

Chiropractic case management must be represented in the chiropractic documentation; it is indicated in the initial visit of the active episode or case. The patient history, exam findings, and any diagnostic testing that may have been ordered or performed help validate the need for care. The end result of this entire process is made up of two things: the definition of the problem or the diagnosis, and a written treatment plan or solution to the defined condition or diagnosis.

The written chiropractic treatment plan should include details of the doctor of chiropractic’s best recommendations for care, including tissue-specific solutions. The written chiropractic treatment plan should define the functional deficits that will be addressed through this written chiropractic treatment plan and the functional goals that are expected from this chiropractic treatment.
