Part 40: Why Do Lawyers Only Want MD Specialists, Not Chiropractors?

Because they have been duped by the car insurance carriers to get them to believe it will render better settlements and verdicts. That is the short answer… The long answer is that they have been duped by the car insurance carriers to get them to believe it will render better settlements and verdicts. Sound familiar.

The reality is that the insurance carrier’s settlement algorithms have been designed around medical specialists and a lawyer working with the average chiropractor will hurt the lawyer regarding settlements and verdicts. However, the trauma trained and credentialed chiropractor functioning as the primary spine care provider, working with their team of medical specialists can almost guarantee much higher settlements and better verdicts based upon both the credentials of the chiropractor and resultant higher level of documentation.

Too many lawyers still hold onto old paradigms in strictly want medical specialists not realizing that simple action is the cause of the perpetual downward spiral of their lowball offers. It has been verified in almost every state in the country that a trauma trained chiropractic physician will render higher numbers to the legal community based upon your clinical excellence. I can only verify this to doctors of which I have trained, however having an opportunity to directly educate lawyers in 30 states gives me the immediate feedback verifying that my statements are accurate.

It is therefore incumbent on the chiropractor to ensure their knowledge base and credentials should they desire to work with medical legal community and be an asset versus a liability to the lawyer. In addition once that chiropractor has been that level of credential it now gives you an opportunity to market that higher level of credential to the legal community.

Part 39: Are Chiropractors ONLY Back Pain Doctors?

Part 39: Are Chiropractors ONLY Back Pain Doctors?

The short answer to this question is both a firm yes and a firm no. Chiropractic is many things to many people and in the true sense by definition it is what all 50 state boards of chiropractic allow in our scope. As a result chiropractors can practice under that umbrella at any level they choose. Some will choose to be back pain doctors while others will choose to integrate nutrition, wellness, personal injury, sports injury, pediatrics, etc. From a personal perspective my belief system is that the core of every chiropractic practice should include adjusting the patient. It doesn’t make me right, it is simply my opinion.

Research is starting to answer so many questions that previously could only be handled philosophically. We now understand to a much greater degree the chiropractic adjustment – brain connection with pain modulation and multiple disparate areas being positively influenced in the reduction of pain. We also are starting to see scientific evidence between the chiropractic adjustment, chronic pain and the potential influence on Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia and dementia patients. All of this research is also starting to give us insight as to scientific validation for disease care as well as pain care through chiropractic care. We are not there yet, but we are “light-years closer” than we’ve ever been in the past because science has given us so much in the past few years.

For those of you that practice in the pain paradigm I 100% support your choice in practice, however please don’t have blinders on to other potential health benefits of chiropractic care. For those of you that practice in the wellness paradigm I 100% support your choice in practice, however please don’t have blinders on to other areas of chiropractic care because we need everyone in our profession. In addition, to those of you practice in the wellness paradigm I am much more critical because I lived there for decades. Do not tell me that you do not treat pain because that is simply a lie. We all treat pain and after the pain is gone you are free to educate your patient on wellness care, nutrition or anything else within your lawful scope.

Unfortunately chiropractic has become more polarized as the years progress and we often forget that we are one profession under one umbrella.

Part 32: Medical Doctors (Primary Care & Specialists) Realize That Chiropractic is the Only Referral Choice for Spine

eval-spine-chiropractorThe research has been written and understood and now the medical community is starting to shift their referral patterns away from physical therapists for spine care. Research has clearly indicated that a chiropractic spinal adjustment affects the central nervous system and will create modulation of pain at both the root level and the brain. This connection is not established the physical therapy mobilization and the research clearly concludes that chiropractic is a highly effective primary option for spine care.

The researchers also concluded that pain is not the arbiter for wellness and that biomechanical insufficiencies must be considered. In addition chiropractic has also been found to have zero side effects in a healthy population, therefore a conclusive diagnosis must be determined prior to instituting care. The doctor of chiropractic is a highly trained diagnostician and has the ability to render safe effective care in an outpatient setting regardless of the cause the pain. Much confusion is created with physical therapists who have minimal to no training in diagnosis, nor the ability refer out for various tests included imaging to determine an accurate diagnosis. This then mandates the medical community to perform all of the diagnostic testing and prevents them from focusing on the patient’s they can help rather than having to refer back and forth on a repetitive basis to conclude an accurate diagnosis as they must with physical therapy.

The research has also concluded that a chiropractic spinal adjustment not only affects the area being treated but multiple areas of the spine and extremities due to the neurological connections. It is becoming increasingly clearer as to why the doctor of chiropractic must be the first choice in spine care.

Part 31: Is All Manipulation the Same?

chiropracticThe problem with this question is the word “manipulation.” Too many healthcare practitioners interchange words and with the homogenization of manipulation the true meaning has gotten lost. Historically osteopaths manipulated for the purpose of increasing blood flow to a region, where chiropractors “adjusted” the spine for the purpose of removing nerve interference. Today there is a third group of healthcare providers laying claim to manipulation as well: the physical therapist, which further muddles the landscape of professionals who treat both spine and extremities.

Having hired and worked with physical therapists (including doctors of physical therapy) I can tell you unequivocally that for extremity care they are excellent. However, for spinal care they do not have the training and experience to diagnosis and treat spinal related issues. Mobilization of spinal regions as typically performed by physical therapists is not a chiropractic spinal adjustment, nor will it ever be. In fact, the state of Tennessee has regulated that for any physical therapist to perform spinal manipulation they must have an equivalent level of education of a chiropractor.

This regulation was prepared to protect the public and I applauded those legislators for doing their job and realizing that people will both get her or not get well under the banner of one word “manipulation.”

The research that is being written today on chiropractic is very specific as to what is helping patients and it would appear to be not in the best public interest to allow physical therapists attempt perform chiropractic under another banner.

Part 30: The “Credentialed” Chiropractor is the key to Your Accident Case

31259_118748688157000_1026975_n

Too many people think every chiropractor is the same and that couldn’t be further from the truth. That is like saying every medical doctors regardless of their specialty training where a psychiatrist, neurosurgeons or gastroenterologists all do the same thing and have the same credentials. In trauma care this holds true with chiropractic and the litmus test is the doctor’s curriculum vitae or CV. Many chiropractors have chosen to further their career with post-doctoral education and have focused on trauma care.

A trauma care chiropractor typically will have post – doctoral credentials in MRI spine interpretation, spinal biomechanical engineering, neurology and triaging the injured. These credentials are critical as often at the doctoral level the doctor of chiropractic is given just the basics in the sub-specialties. To determine if the doctor of chiropractic is right for you either ask for their curriculum vitae or go to www.uschiropracticdirectory.com and search for the doctors curriculum vitae. This is a free service for the public and often will be the difference between a successful versus a poor outcome.

As always should not be able to find the doctors curriculum vitae online you should call them and ask them to send you a copy.

Part 29: Depression: The Chiropractic Spine-Brain Connection

depression-chiropracticAfter years of seeing results in my office and hearing feedback from thousands of patients along with talking to other chiropractors will realize the same results we now have answers. For many years patients reported that after the chiropractic adjustment they were no longer depressed or feeling sad as an example and I attributed to the fact they were no longer in pain. It makes sense as there was no other explanation. Today, thanks to research this phenomena and many others have definitive answers as to why depression and other maladies disappear with chiropractic care.

Research has proven that with chiropractic care the adjustment effects the central nervous system, specifically many areas of the brain that have to do with a myriad of functions and one of them is mood. Therefore when a patient gets adjusted in a chiropractic office as my patients experienced for decades, their moods became elevated and they were no longer depressed. I still believe in part, this was a result of them no longer having to deal with their pain, however the research clearly concludes that the adjustment also stimulated an area of the brain that make them feel better emotionally. Either way this is a “double win” for the patient who simply wants to feel better and be able to function in life.

In addition chiropractic is one of the safest treatments available, which is also been verified the research and people are now starting to realize that feeling good can be done safely and successfully.

Part 28: The Chiropractic Digital Mandate to Keep Pace with the Current Marketplace

digital-marketingToo many doctors of chiropractic how to “bury their heads in the sand” and have ignored the digital revolution. It’s no longer 2009 or 2010 and in today’s marketplace most buyers shop online. 10 years ago most patients went to the managed-care books to find a doctor while today they start on the Internet and then try to match the doctor who piques their interest with their insurance plan.

Websites are also another concern. Over the past 10 to 15 years chiropractors as well as other healthcare providers with purchase “out-of-the-box” websites because they were inexpensive and flashy. In today’s search engine optimization algorithms that is literally the “kiss of death.” And less there is original content along with the robust amount of both inbound and outbound linking along with the myriad of other “backend” programming search engines will not save you and those out-of-the-box websites become the detriment. What most doctors don’t understand is that the language on your side is the exact same on 2 to 300 or 2 to 3000 other sites in the only benefit is for the originator or programmer of the site.

Another significant area which is taking the digital world by storm is social media. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google plus are all prime social sites that need individualized attention. Again many companies have “pulled the wool over your eyes” and offer you social media marketing schemes where they are using the exact same language in 200 different offices. This has almost no value to you because there is also search engine optimization gains by having unique content.

Lastly you must consider a “pay per click program” where you pay a nominal fee directly to Google, Bing, etc. for each time someone clicks on your link which is been moved to the top of the search engines. This is a valid and successful program in the digital world.

To consider having a successful marketing scheme you should participate in all three: unique web development, social media marketing and pay per click.

Part 27: Chiropractic Personal Injury Fees on the Rise

shutterstock_228440362In a recent nationwide study performed by myself it revealed that on average chiropractors are collecting 13% more in personal injury cases that they were in 2013. This is after 9% increase between 2011 and 2013. Although there are many states like New York, Hawaii and Alabama who significantly lagged behind the national average personal injury is still stable economic area of practice.

Many doctors will read this and feel that they must increase those portions of their practices with personal injury patients. From a reimbursement perspective and business plan, that would appear to make sense. However, is that doctor qualified? Treating trauma cases requires a very specific skill set and training no different than in any medical specialty. You wouldn’t want a psychiatrist performing open heart surgery without the requisite training. At the very least, a doctor of chiropractic should have basic training in MRI interpretation, triaging the injured and possibly biomechanical engineering. Understanding the difference between a herniated, bulged, migrated or sequestered disk is critical in creating an accurate diagnosis prognosis and treatment plan in triaging and guiding the patient through care. Although the delivery of chiropractic may not change, when you can and cannot treat your patient might change because collaborative care with a medical specialist and or surgeon might be indicated. The etiology of pain in the trauma case is often dramatically different than in a chronic pain geriatric or pediatric patient.

The only way to spiral upwards in success is through clinical excellence through the acquisition of knowledge and skill sets. Based upon research that has been published in many forums, chiropractic outcomes have outpaced most other forms of treatment for conditions within our scope to treat. As a profession, the most direct avenue for these published studies to help increase utilization is for each doctor to be expert and credentialed in the area of desired practice. Treating personal injury patients is included in this formula and mandates graduate level training (post-doctoral education), so choose your courses wisely as a stepping-stone to what you want your practice to be tomorrow.

Part 26: Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Positively Affect Your Brain Function

shutterstock_248938891

Over the past three decades of treating patients through chiropractic adjustments I have had a significant number of patients tell me that after their adjustments they were able to dance better, play sports better, figure out equations more expeditiously and accurately and a whole host of other activities. Beyond being happy with their experience and acknowledging their achievements I never went as far as getting chiropractic credit for the increase functional gains.

Recent scientific research has quantified functional changes in many areas of the brain with a direct correlation to a chiropractic spinal adjustment. As strange as this sounds it is formally termed “central excitation” and has been correlated between various levels of the spine when adjusted and areas of the brain having increased level of activity. This research breakthrough validates and quantifies much of what chiropractic has been touting for almost 100 years, that the body simply works better when there’s no neurological malfunction. The chiropractic spinal adjustment stimulates the nervous system to allow you to function better.

Should you want to be a better dancer, athlete, worker, architect or excel in any other activity consider chiropractic as a piece of the puzzle to help you achieve your goal.

Part 25: Getting paid: circa 2015

getting-paidOne of the latest tactics of the carriers are to send you a note that they have negotiated settlement with you and are offering you a percentage of your full fee. In many instances they threaten you with either peer reviews or independent medical evaluations should you not accept their offer. Unfortunately too many of you are “rolling over” and willing to accept the crumbs out of fear of the carriers. What each of you need to do is first say no and secondly fight back.

Everyone is entitled to get paid their full fee for services rendered and documented appropriately. The first issue is the carriers’ claim they have negotiated. With whom? In almost every instance the only communicated with themselves or their hired consultants who have devised schemes to “screw you” and now are trying to sell it to you.

In your denial of their offer you must rebut their contention of negotiating as that is inaccurate, incorrect and in my opinion fraud. You then must render a complaint both to your state insurance department and to the Attorney Generals’ office of your state to Institute an investigation against this improper practice that is devoid of facts. Anything less make you a patsy and complicit by allowing this action.

In order to get paid in 2015 you must take a stand and fight for your rights. The various state agencies are your tools to utilize as a taxpaying citizen of your state and they are there to serve you.

I have been teaching my clients over the past few years to take these types of actions and as a result doctors who take home after taxes under $100,000 have seen a net increase of 61% within six months. The same statistics holds true for the higher earners with slightly lower increases. Too many are afraid to take action, however that action is often forces the carriers to play by the same rules we are all mandated to follow. Do nothing, say nothing, get nothing!
