The Chiropractic Pendulum

Feb 24, 2021

The chiropractic profession is seeing a unique and rapidly growing shift, or it seems so from the inside looking out.  We, as DC’s, have more access than ever to quality research, best care practices, and high- quality, ethical practice growing resources.  We have quality resources in the areas of patient customer relation management (CRM's), research reviews, social media, case management and presentation, video instruction, ethical modern chiropractic marketing, practice scaling and management.  However, it seems we still insist on fighting amongst ourselves about the...

Varus and Valgus Insole Posting: An Inexpensive and Effective Alternative to Orthotics

Jan 19, 2021

Summary

  • People with low arches are 20 times more likely to be injured than people with neutral arches, while people with high arches are nearly 80 times more likely to be injured.

  •  Although effective at controlling motion and reducing injury rates, recent research shows custom orthotics can produce rapid, significant reductions in arch muscle volume.

  •  Our new Peel and Stick Varus and Valgus Posts are inexpensive and easy to use, and provide all of the benefits of orthotics without the risk of damaging the intrinsic muscles of the arch.

For more than 60 years, both custom and...

What We Learned and are Grateful for in 2020

Jan 11, 2021

2020 was a year unlike any other. It was historical for many not so good reasons. However, I do feel like 2020 gave us many things...especially for those who looked for the good.

I know that 2020 has been a rough year and has been difficult for many, so first and foremost I want to acknowledge how difficult the year was for many and give my condolences to anyone who lost a family member or anyone that they love. If you lost a family member or someone close to you that you love I pray for your family and healing in these hard times. I also pray that you find peace and purpose in the year to...

Effective Treatment Plans

Oct 13, 2020

For those of you reading this article who have also taken classes with me know that I am somewhat obsessed with treatment plans. I feel this is one of the keys to practice success, clinically and financially. Why is it relevant clinically and financially? Over treat your patients, and you earn that reputation in your community, so patients do not refer others. Under treat and your patients do not get better (especially functionally), they do not come back in the future, and they do not refer others. A line I have heard many times from young D.C.'s is: "The patient was 60% better after two...

Using Tension to Communicate?

Sep 22, 2020

As a modern, informed, intelligent DC, do you find it hard to communicate with patients and not choke on your own dumb-downed words?  Maybe, you catch yourself talking about a patient’s condition in your language and then notice the thousand-yard stare you created with all those big words?  Communicating with patients is a skillset all onto itself.  For decades, the almighty REPORT OF FINDINGS (ROF from here on) has been an important topic in schools, practice management groups, and online forums.  Being the evidence-informed, modern DC, you are, you probably find...

MPI Online Courses

May 27, 2020

It is no secret the COVID19 Pandemic has impacted all of our lives to some extent. Your practice may be closed, half-filled, or a student who can’t get your hands-on patients during your school’s shutdown. With this shutdown, MPI has had to cancel our live workshops until we get clearance from the various state governors that their state is open for group gatherings again.

However, this crisis is no reason you can’t continue your professional development and clinical learning. This is a better time than any to consume and improve your skill set while you have some extra...

Treating Low Back Pain Through the Hip

May 18, 2020

As DC's, treating low back pain is our staple. Obviously, we treat much more than low back pain, but many people come to us for this complaint. A recent JAMA study found that low back and neck pain had the highest amount of health care spending, with an estimated $134.5 billion. The second leading cost was other musculoskeletal disorders, followed by diabetes.(1) Interestingly enough, another JAMA study broke down the expenditures even further and found that even though only 1.2% of patients received surgery, they accounted for 29.3% of total 12-month costs. Furthermore, this study...

Passion & Certainty

Apr 21, 2020

We have written and lectured a great deal over the past few years about keys to practice success, including clinical, management, financial, and leadership success. Clinically, we have written and lectured on the Modern Chiropractor, whose treatment toolbox can include adjustments, soft tissue techniques, stretching of shortened muscles, end range loading, low tech rehab, and anti-inflammatory nutrition. Have you done the reading, taken the classes, and applied your knowledge in a caring way with your patients so that you are supplying the best conservative care available?

For managerial...

Inside the Body and Mind of a World Class Adjuster

Apr 15, 2020

You are sitting in a class or seminar watching one the world's best adjusters demonstrate adjustment after adjustment, and you're wondering to yourself, “how does he or she do that”? 

Hopefully, some explanation of determination and application of what adjustment to deliver was communicated.  Often, what’s happening inside the person providing the adjustment doesn’t get discussed at the seminars or college adjusting labs. 

The Motion Palpation Institute has become very transparent, and hopefully, progressive over the years in this concept. We take...

Navigating Tough Business Times

Mar 27, 2020

In stressful times like the current COVID-19 challenge we are all dealing with, I wanted to write about some of the things we can do with our practices. Some of these ideas come from Tom Peters, the famous management consultant. Here is my list.

Go to work earlier and stay later. You can work on your practice rather than in your practice. You may not have as many patients as normal, so work on your systems. That way, when things become closer to normal again, you are ready to explode your practice. Evaluate your marketing plan, staff members and how you train/develop them, EHR and treatment...
