November 22, 2013 — The Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center has become the first chiropractic partner of Access Health of Spartanburg. Access Health is a non-profit corporation serving the medically underserved population in Spartanburg County, and Sherman College’s Chiropractic Health Center provides quality and affordable chiropractic care to the local community through nearly 20,000 patient visits per year.
Access Health staff screens patients and sends them to the proper healthcare provider based on the patient’s presentation. The Chiropractic Health Center at Sherman College currently receives a set number of referral patients monthly from Access Health and delivers chiropractic care to this population. Dean of Clinics Adam Morrell, DC, says the program has been in effect since July of this year and is now going strong. “We have been getting excellent feedback from Access patients and staff as well as our own interns, faculty and staff,” he shares.
Access Health, in turn, reports compliments from its staff and the patients. The organization recently collected several testimonials about patient care at the Chiropractic Health Center:
- “[My intern] is an angel. She graduates in December and is thinking about opening a practice here locally. I hope she does, because she is good!”
- “They are very professional. They treated me kind, and I didn’t feel any type of stigma because I was on an assistance type program. It was great.”
- “They said my headaches weren’t really headaches, but that they were upper neck pain. I woke up every day with headache. Now I don’t wake up with headaches anymore.”
Sherman’s on-campus Health Center is a teaching clinic for chiropractic students who are in their final stage of internship prior to graduation from the 3.5-year doctor of chiropractic program. The teaching environment, coordinated by licensed doctors of chiropractic, allows interns to practice chiropractic under close supervision and constant consultation.
