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...
Article Review from Dynamic Chiropractic Vol 36, #11   I think deep down, it’s a secret wish of all chiropractors to have a wellness based practice. Think about it, patients who come in before they have a problem?! What a novel idea ( smirk) .  No insurance companies, excessive forms to fill out or fighting tooth and nail to help patients understand the value and importance of regular adjustments which, all sounds...
Hallelujah! Spring has almost sprung and with under a month left of winter, it’s time to start prepping patients on how to shake off the winter pounds.  If your patients are anything like mine, winter is not kind on the waistline.  It starts with Halloween candy, flows into gluttony of Thanksgiving and Christmas, then finishes with a mix of sugar and booze on New Year’s Eve. Add in dark and gloomy days with little...
An Article Review from Dynamic Chiropractic Jan 2018 Edition As we march forward into the year, I think it is important to stay up-to-date with what’s up in chiropractic.  So here we go:   Controversy at it’s Finest: Cannabis   I figure why not start off with a bang? I have to admit that it is my new favorite subject to discuss.  Which, in large part, is probably due to the enormous...
Troll through Facebook, turn on the news, or go to the main page of Yahoo and it’s all there.  Bold scary letters, threatening titles, and fingers being pointed in every direction of who to blame and how to control the most recent flu epidemic.  As a chiropractor, I have no doubt that my fellow colleges have our opinions on some of these hot topics like the flu vaccine, the CDC, mandatory vaccinations, etc. Today, we will...
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...
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. This meeting...
