Dr. Wade Burbank BS, DC, a chiropractor in Vancouver WA and owner of the Accident & Injury Clinic (AIC) -a Primary Spine Care Clinic- has been confirmed as a “Trauma Team Member” by the Academy of Chiropractic, a nationally recognized research and academic organization. Dr. Burbank has undergone rigorous post-doctoral training related to spine and trauma and is now formally qualified to either diagnose or manage all spine cases.
According to Dr. Mark Studin, the clinical director for the Academy of Chiropractic, “Dr. Burbank joins an elite group of chiropractors nationally and has completed an extensive program in triaging the injured, MRI spine interpretation, spinal orthopedics, early detection for stroke, spinal biomechanical engineering and accident reconstruction for motor vehicle accidents. This recognition, which represents a level of clinical training, certifies that Dr. Burbank is the best of the best through clinical excellence and I am proud to add him as our newest member.”
Dr. Studin continues “as research involves, the current scientific literature verifies that chiropractic, when utilized as the first provider significantly reduces disability in the workplace, overall pain, prevents recurring injuries and improves function in almost every aspect of life. Equally important, the scientific literature concludes that when chiropractic is considered as a first option for spine care, the need and use of opiates decreases by 55% in one study, which contributes to help eradicate the opiate crisis in our society.”
Dr. Burbank reports that he has professional relationships and collaborates with a vast array of medical surgeons and physicians as part of the team that manages spine cases as clinically indicated. His curriculum vitae can be found at:
