Don’t miss the opportunities in occupational medicine

As I travel to chiropractic meetings, conventions, and speaking engagements, I am surprised that most DCs do not know that there is a huge piece of the healthcare pie in which they can participate and get paid cash by companies across all of America. Occupational Healthcare is concerned with the safety and well-being of American workers. Isn’t that a field …

Tips for becoming a sports chiropractor

When I was a young boy growing up in New Jersey, I dreamed of playing professional baseball. I was a good baseball player, but as years passed I soon realized my talents did not quite match my desires. As fate would have it, in 2005 I found myself walking into the clubhouse of the Kansas City Royals Spring Training clubhouse …

September is Drug-Free Pain Management Awareness Month: How Chiropractors Can Help

The chiropractic profession is well-positioned to impact the opioid epidemic and the associated drug overdose death rate that has seized America.

The 3Rs

The “3Rs” – Release, Restore, Retrain

We all know that an exercise programs should be a cornerstone of an effective care plan. This especially holds true for conditions that are primarily caused by muscle imbalances or dysfunctional movement patterns.

The Science of Pain

The science of pain and analgesics

External factors can influence …

Make sure your patients play an ACTIVE role in their healthcare

One of the “practice philosophies” we have in our office is: “Get patients better, but at the same time, educate them on what they can be doing outside of the clinic to help with the process.” Sometimes that second part gets lost in diagnosis codes, billing codes, authorization, number of visits… and time, but ultimately many times it proves to be …
