RELEASE OF BROCHURES FOR ALLIED SPINECARE PROFESSIONALS
The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) recently expanded its membership with an Affiliate level to include non-physician members of the spinecare team. Affiliate members include physicians assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, massage therapists, fitness specialists, chiropractic assistants, diagnostic imaging technicians, surgical assistants, acupuncturists, and medical assistants. The Academy developed a series of brochures to help increase public awareness about the role of each of the ancillary providers. The goal is to develop one or more brochures for each discipline. Each brochure highlights the benefits of conservative and cooperative spinecare.
