Three Ways to Help Our Patients Stop the Madness   Here we are again, the start of another year.  “New Year, New You,” “Make 2018 the best year yet,” “2018 is the year it finally happens,” blah, blah, blah.   It does not take much looking around to see these mantras posted all over social media, TV, and radio ads. Year after year, hearing the same worn out adages makes it like...
Super Genes A Review of the New Book by Deepok Chopra MD and Rudolph Tanzi MD   I distinctly remember sitting in my senior level biology class as an undergrad as this mysterious topic emerged.  Epigenetics! The emotion that could be provoked out of a student and/or a professor was always fascinating to me. The 21 st century’s hocus pocus of microbiology.  Eight years ago, this subject was almost completely...
If you are one of those folks who loves the changes of seasons and dreams of winter landscapes; the snow falling delicately, covering the earth in a beautiful blanket of glistening white, then good for you! But for the rest of us, winter can be the most brutal of all the seasons. Snow, shoveling, and falling on the ice is great for an increase in chiropractic visits but not necessarily beneficial for the longevity of our patients. Before...
One of the best parts of being a chiropractor is that we have the opportunity to build real relationships with our patients.  Seeing patients once, twice, three times a week for a length of time (sometimes once a month for years), we get an inside look at how they live their lives.  Career changes, marriages, divorces, children, and serious medical conditions, give us a peek into their daily/weekly habits.  We all know the...
Ugh, the dreaded job interviews.  For some, going to the dentist might seem like a walk in the park compared to gearing up for what could make or break your chances at getting a job position. Usually, the more you want the job, the more nerve racking the interview becomes! What to wear, what to say (or not say), how to make a good first impression, the list is endless when getting yourself prepared for the interview.  Fear not, for...
You have spent the time, energy and money to find a great associate and now you want to keep them and grow your business with them too.  Having employees is tricky, especially as the team of employees grows.  A large team means more opportunity for growth, development and ultimately more money.  With that comes the responsibility to your business and your associates to be the boss everyone wants to work for.   Rule...
An international gathering of chiropractors assembled in Phoenix July 20–22, 2017, for The Activator Global Leadership Conference, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of Activator Methods International. Attendees came from around the U.S., and countries abroad including Spain, Japan, Greece, England, and Canada, underscoring how broadly the Activator Method of instrument adjusting has spread around the world.

There are a handful of clever individuals who are telling students that a vertebra "Doesn't go out of place!" and are attempting to leverage unsuspecting young Chiropractors away from the misalignment model (with novel sounding nonsense) even though spinal research has begun to confirm that misalignment's of the spine occur just as Chiropractors have always known. Spread the news! A new mechanism has emerged from the research...
Lanay M. Mudd, Ph.D. Program Director, Division of Extramural Research National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health We all know that a college education plus postgraduate education is expensive. The average education debt for biomedical research graduates was recently estimated at $175,000. Needless to say, high educational debt levels are an issue for early-stage investigators; in fact, significant...
A group of 11 chiropractors are supporting major athletics events in the UK this summer. The group are part of the main medical service supporting the The World Para-Athletics Championships 14th-23rd July and IAAF World Championships 4th – 13th August. It is the first time that both these championships have been hosted by the same city in the same year. The group are part of the COPS team (Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy,...
The profession is strictly regulated in the UK by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) – an independent regulatory body set up by parliament – and they ensure the safety of patients undergoing treatment. A chiropractor must be registered with the GCC to work in the UK – failure to do so is a criminal offence. Practitioners must also abide by the GCC’s code of practice, hold professional indemnity insurance, and...
