Chiropractic is faced with many new challenges in health care. It is not just about helping people “feel better”. The advent of many new alternative therapies applied by acupuncturists, nutritionists, massage therapists, physical therapists, psychotherapists, life coaches, fitness coaches and wellness coaches presents new competition to the chiropractic profession.
I am sure many of you have heard the joke: “How many chiropractors does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one, but it will take 27 office visits.” Although this joke brings a laugh to anyone familiar with chiropractic, it should be a warning sign to our profession—as to how we have been branded in the eyes of the public.
When some practice managers of the past were promoting how to get their case visits up to 50 or even 100, I was working to get my case visit average down to 10. Some chiropractors laughed at my attempts, saying, “You can never be successful with that approach.”
However, through this approach, we broke the million-dollar barrier. Patients wanted to see us because of our effectiveness, and over 75% stayed on for wellness care, because of our efficiency and ability to help them with the variety of other health conditions they were living with. Homeopathy was the key therapeutic adjunct that made the difference!
Our future as the number one natural health care profession is now based on providing the most efficient and effective solutions to help people in less time, visits, and cost. This principle is true with both patients and managed care companies. Whoever provides the most effective solutions will be the most successful and gather the major market share of business. That is the bottom line.
“Be the Best and Ahead of the Rest”
The chiropractic profession has been built and branded upon the chiropractic adjustment and the natural treatment of musculoskeletal problems, especially in the spine. The key to our growing success is “being the best and ahead of the rest” at what we do. Chiropractic and homeopathy working hand-in-hand will greatly help our profession further develop and solidify its threatened leadership role in musculoskeletal care, as they both correct nerve interferences throughout the whole nervous system—from the brain to the periphery.
Homeopathy to the Rescue
As we expand our concept of the subluxation complex, we begin to discover new ways to correct the plethora of nerve interferences that exist beyond the spine. The homeopathic potentization process has discovered powerful therapeutic abilities in the substances of our environment by using serial dilutions beyond the molecular level. These scientific breakthroughs in homeopathy provide many new insights into energetic medicine to help us complete the initial concepts of chiropractic. These solutions have turned the once complex and elusive healing art of homeopathy into a simple and easy-to-use approach for the high volume chiropractic practice.
There are simple homeopathic solutions that can be easily incorporated into the musculoskeletal practice. Homeopathic companies offer formulations to help the chiropractor achieve faster, more effective and corrective results with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions such as:
• acute and chronic back, neck and spinal injuries
• arthritis and fibromyalgia
• neuralgias and sciatica
• TMJ, headaches and migraines
• disc injuries and degeneration
• sports injuries and performance enhancement
• associated problems, such as stress and reflex subluxation disorders (digestive, hormonal, food allergies, colon, ileocecal valve, reproductive, and adrenal)
Homeopathy equips the chiropractor to more effectively and efficiently help the greatest number of people overcome a greater diversity of musculoskeletal problems, more so than any other healing art. With its vast accumulation of clinical data, homeopathy empowers the chiropractor to make the most significant healing impact on society—from head injuries to turf toe. With these new contemporary procedural systems, you can enjoy the benefits of a high volume practice with the greater rewards of a broad-spectrum practice.
