Evidence-based Chiropractic Medicine
Dr. Benjamin Tan, DC, PAK, prides himself as a Physician who has an Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). This means using what’s in the available latest research to discern the patient’s problem, and then appropriating the right clinical treatment using Applied Kinesiology.
Patients and even healthcare providers out there, from therapists to specialists, are constantly bombarded by new treatment options with new technological advancements and alleged clinical efficacy. The International Academy of Neuro-musculo-skeletal Medicine (IANM) equips Chiropractors with the necessary skills to communicate and diagnose based on what the latest evidence suggests.
Currently, Dr. Benjamin is going through a rigorous academic and clinical training program (online) by the IANM. In this program, Dr. Ben delves deep into the latest scientific research out there and appropriates his treatment for patients based on what is recommended.
Upon completion of this program, Dr. Benjamin will achieve “Board Certification” as a Diplomate of the International Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (DIANM), previously known as Diplomate of Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopaedics (DABCO).
Through this program, Dr. Benjamin will have the credentials necessary to become a member of an integrated, healthcare team within any clinical setting as a Chiropractic Specialist in Neuro-musculo-skeletal (NMS) medicine. Although there is not an integrative healthcare system that includes Chiropractors here in Singapore, Dr. Ben believes that in good faith and in due time, it will happen.
