Chiropractors Adjusting Space
I'd recommend for anyone developing any sort of service based business location to visit businesses in your geographical area that are outside of your professional niche. For example, visit your local Starbucks. Bring along a notepad and take some notes paying particular attention to the things that would cross over to your industry such as parking, ease of access from the front door to the point of payment, entrances and exits, efficient use of space, etc.

Do You Believe Your Body Has the Ability to Heal Itself?
For many people who walk into a Chiropractor's office the first time,
they really don't know what to expect. We hear from time to time: "I
don't think this is going to work, but I'll give it a couple of
times." Ok, so now you walked in with a negative attitude. Your
Chiropractor will take the time to explain if and how he/she feels
Chiropractic can help you. You still leave the office thinking that
this is too good to be true.

on developing a successful chiropractic website
Listen, I wasn't the first person to build a
chiropractic web site. I've been at this since 1995 and I've amassed
more details and information about web sites than I care to put
online. All that information is out there anyway, if you only go
seeking it out.
So let's hit some basics
which will be followed by a some resources where you can get more
granular information. By far the most common question I get asked is
"can you build my chiropractic web site?"

What it's like to be a chiropractor in Los Angeles
practiced throughout the United States and every city, town and community
offers a unique chiropractors story. Being a chiropractor in Los Angeles is
no exception, and many stories could be told about being a DC in LA. With
Los Angeles being a major metropolitan area, we sometimes experience a
different sense of community than someone practicing in a small-town
community setting. This article focuses primarily on the Los Angeles beach
communities of Venice, Marina del Rey, and Santa Monica and the local
practice of chiropractor, Michael Dorausch.

Chiropractors Correct Subluxation
As principled Chiropractors, you’ve participated in many debates and
discussions regarding semantics within our profession. The most common is
the difference between using the words “adjustment” and “manipulation.”
Knowing that manipulate means “to control or influence cleverly, unfairly,
or unscrupulously” certainly steers us away from using the word to describe
anything about our beloved craft.

HIPAA... It's A Law... Are You Ready?
HIPAA was created from the simple concept of protecting patient
privacy and to preserve patient rights in their selection of
healthcare, and has concluded with complex legislation and legal
jargon difficult to interpret.

Habits are Hard to Break
If you have ever
tried to break yourself of a bad habit, you know how hard it can be. You
have to break it once then again and again and again. You have to do it
many times at relatively close intervals. This helps your body to retrain
itself to a new habit.

their children to Doctors of Chiropractic every year? Is it only for highly
dramatic health conditions? Is it only for when my child is hurting? Not at

Essence of Wholistic Healing
One of the toughest lessons I had to learn—and, perhaps, that we all
have to learn—is that no external circumstances, happenings, or people are
ever the cause of the problems/dis-eases in my life.

A common misconception that many people have is that
stretches correct subluxations and can replace adjustments. Stretching
allows your muscles to relax, allowing better range of motion, decreased
tension, and a feeling of well-being.

Pregnancy and Chiropractic
As I write this today, two of our beautiful practice members are awaiting
the arrival of new additions to their families. Adjusting women through
pregnancy is one of the most rewarding parts of our work, because a
healthier pregnancy means an easier labour and delivery, and a better
transition for the baby into this life.

Scoliosis & Chiropractic
The story of a mother, her children, a spinal condition known as
Scoliosis, and an old saying... "You never know how far reaching

Hormones, Osteoporosis and Bones
Bones are undercover dutiful workers, silhouettes barely visible;
yet home to ceaseless invisible activity. They are a part of a
passive subsystem, not able to move us nor themselves, yet our
entire physical being depends on them for strength, support and
protection. They are also home to part of our precious immune
Women and bones are linked in our culture, although men can also
experience changes in bone health. During the different stages of a
woman's lifecycle, Innate changes the ratio of (new bone being
built)/(old bone being broken down) and choices made within the
normal rhythm of the day can support or interfere with the potential

The Chiropractic Position on Vaccines
Now there's a scary title. An audible inbreath from those bastions
of chiropractic academia who are trying so hard to maintain the
obsequious appearance of cooperation and subservience... Please let
us play doctor too... we'll be good... we'll be a drugless
profession, but you guys are the real masters of the universe... So
would you mind referring us your back pain cases, please?

Who Really Controls Our Healthcare System
Have you ever wondered
how we ended up in a healthcare system that is riddled with errors
and inconsistencies, priced beyond everyone's means, centered on the
use of toxic chemicals and with a track record of iatrogenic
injuries that is beyond the carnage of all our wars?

Phenylpropanolamine and Strokes - was it all a hoax?
The news first
surfaced around the weekend of November 3rd, 2000. A common cold
medication and diet stimulant ingredient known as
phenylpropanolamine was about to be banned by the U.S. Food and Drug
(PPA), was commonly used in prescription and over-the-counter cold
and cough products as a nasal decongestant and in over-the-counter
weight control products.

2000 and a Chiropractic Year in Review
Remember Y2K? I
remember it well. I spent the week before the New Year searching for
bugs in our computer systems. I was especially concerned about our
news service, as we had thought the news articles might possibly go
from a date of 1999 to 1900. Well, that never happened. Instead, our
news server thought the year was now 19000! We had some quick work
to do, and thanks to Grant (the main news programmer) we had a
solution in a few hours. For the most part, fears of Y2K just
