Where are we going? Where have we been?

I had my eyes opened a little bit wider during a conversation with a true chiropractic guidepost.  Dr. Richard Vincent is truly a rich resource of information. He has served as Chairman of the Massachusetts Board of Chiropractic Examination and Registration, President of the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards and President of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. He is currently the President of Integrated Health Care Practice Resources (IHCPR).  I had a great talk with him on the podcast about where chiropractic has come from and what needs to be done in the name of progress.

He talks about the days before licensing in Massachusetts, the development of cultural authority and where the horizons of opportunities are for chiropractors right now.  He also illuminates some issues that existed — some much improved yet many remain unchanged.

The interview with Richard Vincent, DC and Brett L. Kinsler, DC can be heard here.

    I’m honored to have known Dr Vincent for most of my professional career. To his credit, he has been promoting patient centered, evidence based care long before it became popular within the chiropractic profession. For many of us, we owe the opportunities we enjoy to the pioneering efforts of Dr Vincent. As the old saying goes, I am able to do what I do and see what I see because I stand on the shoulders of giants. Dr Vincent is one of those giants.
