Is it possible for a space maintainer spring and power chain working together?

Can you put a power chain over a space maintainer spring? It seems counter productive to me and the orthodontics place I go to it a bit sketchy. I have a spring maintainer for a space that an implant will be going into soon and the assistant put a power chain over the spring. I asked her to ask the orthodontist about it and she instead asked a fellow assistant who said it was fine. I'm needing to know if this is supposed to be done or not?
