In the last blog, we talked about the article in the January edition of Dynamic Chiropractic discussing chiropractic and potential causations with vertebrobasilar artery dissection. Even among the experts the jury is still out whether or not a manual cervical adjustment can cause the actually tearing of the artery leading to the stroke or not. I was thinking, why not do some more review on the whole phenomena and make sure that as...
Original article in Dynamic Chiropractic Vol 37, Number 12, December 2019   As I was reading the latest addition of Dynamic Chiropractic, I couldn’t help but cringe when I saw the title.  As a chiropractor or a chiropractic enthusiast how could you not? One of the potential dark clouds of our profession splashed across the front page.  I remember at Palmer, this was certainly a topic of concern.  This was ten...
Search engine optimization…is it just me or are there really some down sides to owning your own business? I’m not saying SEO’s are bad but to me there are so many more interesting and exciting things to do as a business owner.  But hey, in the age of technology, speed of information and the majority of research and shopping is done online, I guess I better put SEO’s at the top of my to-do list.   If...
I know as business owners, our frustrations can be endless.  Payroll, rent, advertising, taxes, customer fulfillment, patient complaints and employee drama just to name a few…but what happens if you have a rockstar employee or associate? What if your associate or front desk staff are really bringing the magic with patient satisfaction? What if the clinic hits the financial goals for the month? What would be some simple, yet...
Bad reviews on social media, talk about a sticky situation.  For a business, good reviews are like gold.  Customers are actively looking at Facebook, Instagram, Google, etc to tell them if a business is worth their time, energy and money.  I know personally I have researched all kinds of businesses from restaurants, travel/tourism, doctors, rehab facilities, etc to see who gets high marks and who falls short.  ...
Unless you are the only employee in your business, you will eventually run into this issue.  There are times in a business when it would be very difficult to not be excited.  Grand openings, appreciation parties, killer sales months, hitting new landmarks within the company, etc. all help to keep employees soaring high.    But what happens when there is a slow month? What about three slow months in a row?  All...
Wow, that is quite a mouthful. Good thing scientists don’t typically write poetry, yikes! Over the weekend, I was at my annual Activator Methods seminar. I’ve been advanced rated since before I even graduated from Palmer.  It’s nice to go every year, get a refresher and learn about some of the new research they have had their hands in.  One of the advantages for the Activator technique is, is that the instrument...
Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is getting knee replacements lately? Ok maybe not everyone is getting them but I have patients in their late 40’s and early 50’s with total knee replacements.  The procedure does not seem to be reserved for little old ladies anymore.  With the advancement of technology which allows people at younger ages to qualify and the tidal wave of baby boomers do you feel totally...
With our lives getting more hectic, to-do lists getting longer and the constant pressure to be “on” 24/7, I think we are all looking for ways to get more out of life with a little less work.  As the old adage says “work smarter, not harder” here are 10 things you can implement immediately to reduce stress and increase productivity.   Create a Morning Routine...
As with 95% of the blogs I write, the inspiration for them come from my own experiences and mishaps inside my own businesses.  Once again, life has given me another topic to discuss.   Wikipedia says, “ Onboarding , also known as organizational socialization, refers to the mechanism through which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors in order to become effective organizational members and...
It’s that time of year again to break out the resolutions to make 2019 the best year ever!   It’s finally going to be the year I lose “X” amount of pounds, pay off debt or take that once in a lifetime trip.  Heck, I like all of those and I would think most people living in the US or the UK would feel similarly.  Here’s the deal resolutions don’t work, and neither do goals unless you...
Has the “man” got you down and now you ready to serve justice by being the “man or woman” yourself? I’m only kidding but has the entrepreneur itch seized it’s grip on you?  Are you tired of not running the show, being told when to show up and how it’s done?    Maybe you are one of those fiscally responsible folks who has been hoarding your paychecks under your bed waiting for...
