With the evolving health care laws, ICD 10, and chiropractic practice success, a tremendous amount of appeal is placed on the use of passive modalities, and rehabilitative exercises to not only help with efficaciousness of treatment, but to help enhance revenue, and ensure practice stability.

Steven Visentin
A survey showed that the fear of public speaking is only second to the fear of death. As a doctor, you may find you need to speak out, even though you may be introverted and dread it. Fortunately, there are techniques to help you overcome this all too common fear.

Modern society is in a health crisis, and much of it has to do with what people eat every day. In a very short period, we have moved from a diet of fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats, and unrefined grains, to meals that aie highly processed and generally come from a box, bag, or can.

Cell phones. Facebook. Texting. Instagram. Face-Time. Technology has made it so easy for all of us to communicate. However, it has also created the problem of blurring the lines between personal and office life. By now, many of you will have rolled your eyes and set the magazine aside, but for the rest of you stalwart men and maidens, I congratulate you.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been proposed as an advanced form of therapy that complements the chiropractic profession. For musculoskeletal disorders seen every day in clinics, LLLT has attained popularity because no side effects have been reported after treatment.

<p>One of the most consistent complaints I hear from DCs is that they feel as if they have to be a scripted robot with new patients. For years, I’ve been showing DCs throughout the world how to get far easier and quicker care acceptance from new patients without overeducating, feeling pressured, or feeling like a salesperson.</p>

Whether your patients complain of knee, hip, low back pain, sciatica, headaches, etc., always evaluate the foundation of the structure—the feet, which represent 25% of the human skeleton (26 bones in each foot = 52 of 206 bones in the skeleton).

Many DCs have heard the cautionary tale of a California-based practice that wound up with a refund request of $708,022 from the federal government following an audit. Among the practice’s most egregious mistakes: the majority of the services billed (82%) were sent in with CPT code 98942/five spinal regions (not so coincidentally, the highest-paid CPT code covered by Medicare for chiropractic services).

Chiropractors have long held the notion that “people get well and stay well at a higher level because of chiropractic care.” This has been the mantra of the primary author for more than 30 years and has been based upon the observation of thousands of patients reporting the effects of chiropractic care, an integral part of the definition of “best medical practice.”

I’m not a pain-based practitioner anymore. I’m a health-based practitioner. I didn’t go into chiropractic to handle sciatica and hot disks, or to relieve a migraine headache. Yes, I was glad to be able to help those people, but my purpose was to increase the overall quality of their health and their lives.

Let’s face it—chronic low-grade dehydration is a big problem in the United States. It is especially a problem when your patients are trying to lose weight. You may not be aware, but studies show that, at any given time, between 20 to 35% of US adults are actively “dieting.”
