At Dr. Rogovin's Brandon Chiropractic office we believe in an integrated team approach to healthcare for the benefit of our patients. We work closely with local medical physicians and refer out without reservation when a patient needs a multidisciplinary treatment regimen. Over the past 26 years, our Brandon chiropractic office has become a reliable referral source for local medical professionals faced with difficult or challenging neuromusculoskeletal cases. As a result a large portion of our practice comes from referrals from local medical physicians and other medical professionals.
If you are a medical professional visiting our site, we encourage you to browse the various pages. If you've never been in a chiropractic office, we encourage you to contact us anytime for a complete tour of our facility. You can see first hand the variety of techniques and technologies utilized in a contemporary chiropractic office.
We are one of only a few clinics in Hillsborough county and as far as we know the only one in the Brandon,Florida area to offer continuous passive motorized flexion distraction therapy. This technology works best for herniated/bulging discs, arthritis, and non-responsive mechanical low back pain.
In addition we offer Acupuncture as an alternative treatment for pain related conditions. Acupuncture is often very effective when traditional treatments fail.
Upon a referral you can expect:
• Initial and interim reports.
• A referral back to your office during active care and upon completion of care.
• A DISCHARGE summary upon completion of care.
• We accept only those patients we truly believe we can help.
If you have any questions about our office, or would like to refer a patient, feel free to contact our office at 813-689-6359.
Why refer to Dr. Rogovin
If your patient is not responding to traditional medical care, a referral to a chiropractor is often an appropriate and effective alternative. Patients appreciate your willingness to consider other options.
Treatment at the Rogovin Chiropractic Office is based on an evidence-based approach incorporating "best practices" into our recommendations. Best practices include treatment based on three important concepts: (1) the best available scientific evidence, (2) clinical decision-making, and (3) patient values.
"How educated is a doctor of chiropractic?"
You may be surprised to know that like medicine it generally takes 8 years of college after high school to receive a degree in chiropractic (4 years undergraduate and 4 years graduate). A chiropractic degree from an accredited chiropractic college, followed by passage of the state boards (until 1975 MDs and DCs in Ohio sat in the same room and took the same test to become licensed), ensures the public that the chiropractor is well rounded in knowledge and scope. Since chiropractic physicians neither prescribe drugs nor perform surgery, chiropractic college places heavy emphasis on neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment. Therefore while we are responsible to be able to diagnosis and/or recognize general medical conditions, our background provides a clear advantage in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal problems compared to most medical physicians. If you suffer heart or kidney disease, your medical physician is the appropriate choice. It is to your benefit to explore both natural and allopathic (drugs and surgery) approaches and choose your best option, or team.
Bottom line: No physician can adequately treat everything. Medical doctors, chiropractic physicians, and other health professionals all have a place in the healthcare delivery system.
