Because Dr. Aamodt also has the heart of a teacher, having trained university students in the health sciences, he is very adept at explaing not only the "what", but also the "why" and "how" of any health problem you might need to understand. Our Patients are well-informed.
As an educator Dr. Aamodt is not only aware of spinal and chiropractic issues. He supports vaccination and coordination of your care with all appropriate physicians in different areas of expertise. The interplay of your health is not just your spinal health. The integrity of your endocrine and immune systems, your nutrition, your exercise, your life-style...all come into play. Teaching in the Biology Department at Davenport University keeps him freshly current in the most current health issues of the day. Our Patient's care is integrated.
As a Forensics expert Dr. Aamodt is able to see how the medical world, the legal world, the rehabilitation world, and the chiropractic world all come together in complex injury cases. There are only a handful of chiropractic specialists with this combination of training, who have an opportunity to see cases from so many angles and therefore understand how each profession can best deal with complex issues in health care. Calling complex cases as he sees them almost always pleases one side and displeases the other...but integrity to honesty requires that Dr. Aamodt sticks to the facts of the cases he adjudicates in these legal settings. Our Patients have confidence in our Integrity.
Possibly the biggest difference of all is one of case-management. There is a line between too much and too little care. Some chiropractors have hurt the profession by choosing treatment plans that can lead to huge costs and lengthy treatment plans designed around lifetime maintenance care. Dr. Aamodt uses "evidence-based" care concepts. This type of care leads to measureable treatment goals, in short projections of time, with minimal costs. Keeping costs down helps not only the uninsured patient, but also brings confidence to the insurance field to trust that evidence-based doctors are not basing treatment on a calendar, but on true clinical evidence of need and benefit. Our Patients get quality, not quantity care.
