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!

Part 24: Is a Colossus Report All That is Needed to Succeed in Personal Injury?

There are many in the industry that have gone on to be consultant “guru’s” and are touting that your basic chiropractic education is all that is needed to have a successful personal injury practice provided you have special paperwork that is designed to maximize settlement from the legal community. This type of paperwork is termed “Colossus compliant” and meets those documentation algorithms required by the carrier to ensure a fair settlement for the injured.

While I agree wholeheartedly that it is important to document accurately, thoroughly and meeting the needs of the carriers, I contend that this type of documentation is a very small piece of the puzzle, albeit a necessity. What doctors don’t realize is they also have to meet the needs of the courts, licensure boards and academia while meeting the needs of the carriers in an ethical posture. In addition, attorneys have many needs beyond simple settlement requirements, which Colossus is designed for.

My goal is to make the Dr. of chiropractic the first referral choice for lawyers as well as medical primary care providers and medical specialists and simply a Colossus type report will not accomplish that. A Dr. of chiropractic needs a robust curriculum vitae with admissible and pertinent citations and the knowledge base behind those citations. In addition the Dr. of chiropractic needs relationships with medical specialists at the peer level, not just a rubber stamp to validate an insurance requirement to garner a higher settlement.

There is no substitute for clinical excellence and being successful in personal injury mandates that level of excellence that can only be derived from graduate level (postdoctoral) education. Every state mandates continuing education to maintain licensure and I urge each of you to study wisely. I suggest you go to www.teachdoctors.com as that site houses perhaps the finest chiropractic postdoctoral education in the industry.

Part 23: I am a straight chiropractor. I am a mixer chiropractor… I am full of crap!!

you-are-a-chiropractor-legalYou are neither…you are just a chiropractor practicing with in the lawful scope of your practice. How you choose to practice is entirely up to you and the day you project your personal beliefs or opinions onto others and how they should practice you become a public health risk. Different patients require different therapies and strategies and I can attest that although I am incredible adjustor, there are patients that simply do not respond to my techniques of treating them.

We all have patients like that and no matter how proficient you are, some people simply do not respond. To those patients I say “thank goodness for the chiropractor down the block who practices differently than I do.” Why? Because if I was the only one, then that patient would say that chiropractic does not work. Now they have a chance to say that I didn’t work and the other person down the block helped them because we all offer something a little different and THANK GOODNESS for those differences.

Too many dogmatically hold onto their beliefs and condemn those who are different. That is both the height of prejudice and is bad for the public. So…the next time you cast a negative comment on how your neighbor practices, remember, you ARE a public health risk and should be censored!

Part 22: It is Not Easy to Find Good Graduate-Level Courses

keep-educationingHere is one lesson we need to take from the medical community. The ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) is a national umbrella, with one national standard that accredits ALL graduate-level or post-doctoral medical continuing education. Chiropractic is still stuck in the “dark ages” where each state controls its own graduate level courses and this poses a huge challenge to providers. First, there are stringent rules in getting courses approved and there are very limited bodies through which to work.

These rules all limit the type, variation and number of courses available to doctors of chiropractic on a state-by-state basis. Yes, there might be a huge volume of courses conglomeratly, but when you divide that number by 50, it leaves sometimes very poor choices for doctors to get quality graduate level education.

The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, through the PACE program has been in existence in one name or another since 1926 and although there are 24 states, 1 US territory and 1 Canadian Province that recognize PACE credits there are still 36 that do not. Although this is a good start, recently Arizona and Connecticut recently dropped out moving us in the wrong direction. We as a profession need to be centralized allowing for every doctor of chiropractic to have access to quality graduate level education with an expanding pool, not the opposite and there is already an infrastructure in place to support that.

Hopefully within our lifetime, the public can win by having a better educated doctor of chiropractic.

Part 21: Why the Public “Thirsts” for Your Credentials

accessibility-chiropractic-networkingAccessibility. In today’s digital world one word sums it up. My 80 year old widowed aunt told me 2 days ago that she needed a doctor, so she went to the Internet and looked up her potential doctor’s credentials online. First, if they weren’t there she would not have chosen to utilize that doctor and she was quite specific about being about to readily find her new doctors credentials online. Take my 80 year old aunt and multiply that by every person in your community that has access to the Internet. That is your potential market and the question begs itself… Do you have your credentials online and are they SEO’D?

It is purely for that reason that I created the US Chiropractic Directory (www.USChiropracticDirectory.com) and gave you a free tool to build your curriculum vitae. In simply English, you have to be either stupid or the laziest person on earth not to use that service… Again, it is free and wanted by EVERYONE. The next step is to then publicize your credentials through your current patients, your community and all of your advertisements. If you feel that your credentials are deficient, the easy part is to fix that by taking meaningful graduate level courses. I know kinesiotaping is a great adjunct, but every PT, personal trainer and their cousins are doing it. How does that help you stand apart in a crowded referral pool? Choose carefully.

Let your clinical excellence “do the talking” and lead vs. a slick advertising promotion with bent pens and head shots. Start branding yourself and the best of the best through clinical excellence!

Part 20: Drugs and Chiropractic

opioid-analgesic-cocaine-heroin-deathsI can say with a certain degree of certainty that if my licensed allowed me to write prescriptions, on face value I would be excited because it would resolve a lot of issues for my patients who seek relief while their underlying problems are being corrected. That rationale has been my struggle over the last few years as the “prescriptions in chiropractic” debate has raged. Although my dogmatic “straight” chiropractic upbringing made my stomach turn at the thought of introducing drugs into chiropractic, I wanted to keep an open mind and “be real” about the benefits to society and the informed and consider the positive impact this expansion of my scope would render.

Over the last few years I have been involved in medical academia at the highest level both in teaching and helping coordinate research. I have done so with a keen eye on chiropractic utilization statistics and have realized that we are rapidly moving in the wrong direction while searching for a solution that will go well beyond my grandchildren. Medical academia has appeared to have rendered the solution while chiropractic still struggles internally with politics that too often appears self-serving.

Medical academia and now the medical establishment is reaching to chiropractic as a solution in part to the opioid epidemic creating by medicine. Medicine realizes that for musculoskeletal problems opioids have been abused (see graph below) and are currently reaching out to the chiropractic profession as a solution “in part” to this problem. Medical academia is starting to teach their primary care providers through family practice programs that chiropractic should be the first choice of referral for a spinal related musculoskeletal problem and not opioids.

This single shift in policy in medicine where those that serve 95% of the population (medical primary care providers) can fill chiropractic practices and educational institutions beyond capacity for future generations. Should chiropractors continued to fight to be prescribers we then become part of the problem and medicine will seek an alternative solution that does not include chiropractic. For the last 120 years chiropractic has survived and often thrived without the use of prescriptions. I fully support evolving as a profession through research and finding additional ways to help people get well. My concern is that if we become part of the established and well-documented problem we will be bypassed and continue to contract as a profession.
