Our first question falls under patient need.
“Is the product or procedure safe?”
This may seem a little obvious to some. However, there are dozens of new products and service offered to the chiropractic profession each year. Some of these are FDA approved or qualified under state law but some are not.
No one wants to hurt a patient and it is a good idea to ask about FDA and other approvals prior to buying new equipment. You should also double check your state law/scope of practice prior to purchase. Just because a vendor tells you the product is ok, it does not mean it is. Check it out. Vendors of some products don’t always limit displaying and selling to states their products are approved in.
A final thought for this question concerns the qualifications of the doctor and/or staff running the equipment or performing the procedure. The products and services are often only as safe as those running them.
