During May and the first half of June, the number of applications for membership from neurosurgeons continued to climb. The record number of applications received during April was exceeded during the month of May. This trend is expected to continue due to the expanded AASP member benefits.
The new applicants included neurosurgeons from numerous University settings. The influx of the new neurosurgical members increases the demand for additional chiropractic physicians in various areas of the country. The AASP will be contacting chiropractic physicians in the geographic region of the new neurosurgical members to inform them of their opportunity to join the AASP and become part of a spinecare referral system.
