Chiropractic in the News

woman adjustingThe common misconception many chiropractors say they face is the notion that they are simply “back crackers.” Instead, the focus of today’s chiropractic care is on whole-body wellness. Whether an individual is recovering from an injury or simply suffering from general stressors on the body—like lack of movement, often caused by sitting at a computer all day—the restoration of good spinal health can have a positive impact on the nervous system, which can cause the body to heal and perform more effectively.

“Looking at it with the broadest brush stroke, the body has an innate ability to heal itself as long as it is not being impeded in some way,” says Timothy Fargo, D.C., of Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center, PA in Edina.

While there are many methods chiropractors use to treat patients, the ultimate goal is health. “We want to educate people about wellness,” Fargo says, “whether that’s nutrition, flexibility, exercise and fitness, or simply a positive mental outlook. We want people to move well, eat well and think well.”

According to Fargo, chiropractic care is the “largest non-drug and non-surgical profession on the planet.” Interest has grown in recent years, he says, as rising rates of disease such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes continue to attract attention, leaving people to want to “treat their bodies correctly on the front end” rather than eventually dealing with the consequences of a serious illness.

Stress, which has increased as a result of the country’s current economic state, also can overwhelm the body and result in sleep problems, digestive issues, hormonal difficulties and high blood pressure.

“Let’s think about the body as being able to manage stress as if it were a five-gallon bucket. It can only handle so much and if you can’t drain it fast enough, it will overflow and affect your body in many ways,” Fargo says. “And no, while we don’t ‘crack backs,’ we do use the spine as a tool to free the nervous system from interference, which can reduce stress on the body and help it to be better functioning.”

There are many chiropractic care centers in Edina and all locations treat patients for a wide variety of conditions. Here are a few local clinics—and their specialties—that’ll help you get started.

Ladder of Success – B.J. Palmer

100%–I did   BJ-studying

90%–I will

80%–I can

70%–I think I can

60%–I might

50%–I think I might

40%–What is it?

30%–I wish I could

20%–I don’t know how

10%–I can’t

0%–I won’t

-B.J. Palmer

There is a great difference between a man who thinks “perhaps” he can do, or who “will try” to do a thing, and a man who “knows” he can do it, who is “bound” to do it; who feels within himself a pulsating power, an irresistible force, equal to any emergency.

The difference between uncertainty and certainty, between vacillation and decision, between the man who wavers and the man who decides things, between “I think I might” and “I can,” between “I can’t” and “I will,” this little difference measures the distance between weakness and power, between mediocrity and excellence, between commonness and superiority.

The Graduate and the Master

G & M Stat GraphAfter years of consulting Chiropractors, I decided to write a book of my experiences so that a Graduate from Chiropractic College wouldn’t fall prey to the common mistakes of opening a practice. I knew what mistakes they would make and how to avoid them. Once the book was written I realized that an old time Chiropractor, if he was struggling in practice, would also benefit from knowing the 21 Traits to Becoming a Master, and thus the title of the book. The other point I wanted to ensure was contained in the book was Chiropractic Philosophy because it seemed that over the years education in the History and Philosophy had dropped out from the curriculums or minimized.

T.F. Ratledge, D.C. said it best: “People live by their philosophies of life. Without a philosophy, no one has an adequate basis for arriving at conclusions as to what should be the procedure in the problems of life. The person who understands the philosophy of chiropractic has no limits at all upon what he may do, except in his ability to apply the principles of chiropractic to the circumstances. Without the philosophy of chiropractic, one would not come to the conclusion that vertebral adjustment is necessary. Few chiropractors ever reason out the science of chiropractic unless they get fundamental philosophy in their early study of the subject and, therefore, they cannot apply the principles in practice.”

The Graduate and the Master contains more than enough inspiration to bring you out of whatever is holding you back from succeeding in practice. You can go to my website at www.expandingpractice.com and click on the Products tab and then the Books tab for a fuller description and a look at the Table of Contents.

THE TRUTH

WE CHIROPRACTORS work

with the subtle substance of the soul.

We release the prisoned impulse,

the tiny rivulet of force

that emanates from the spirit

and flows over the nerves and the cells

and stirs them into life.

We deal with the magic power

that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay;

that robes the earth with beauty,

and hues and scents the flowers

with the glory of the air.

In the dim, dark, distant long ago,

when the sun first bowed to the morning star,

this power spoke and there was life;

it quickened the slime of the sea

and the dust of the earth

and drove the cell to union

with its fellows in countless living forms.

Through eons of time it finned the fish

and winged the bird

and fanged the beast.

Endlessly it worked,

evolving its forms

until it produced the crowning glory of them all.

With tireless energy

it blows the bubble of each individual life

and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form,

and absorbs the spirit into itself again.

And yet you ask,

“Can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the ‘flu’?”

Have you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine

than in the Innate Power

that animates the internal living world?

Procrastination!

Multi-photo - Thank You“The miraculous-inspiration myth would have you believe that creative ideas are flashes of brilliance that suddenly appear out of the blue to a fortunate few. One only has to be in the right place at the right time and presto! Instant creativity and success descends on the lucky recipient. The problem with this myth is if you believe it, nothing will happen. Flashes of brilliance come to those who work for them.

“Any successful artist, writer, inventor or creative professional can attest to the absurdity of waiting to be inspired. First you begin and then the insights appear. Magical insights and solutions to problems are sometimes stumbled on, but they are almost without exception stumbled on by people who happen to be studying the problem.

“There is a term used to describe the behavior of those who waited to be inspired – procrastination.” Michael LeBoeuf, from the book “Imagineering.”

Each client I’ve consulted over the years has been unique. They each lived a different life, had different experiences, losses and wins. The one common thread that went through all of them is that despite or because of their experiences they were willing to help their fellow man to live a better life. They also knew when they couldn’t solve their own practice problems and reached for help from an outside source. Which means they didn’t give up even though they were facing what they thought were insurmountable problems.

Now the desire to seek help can also suffer from procrastination. A Chiropractor can want help but is unwilling to reach out and ask for it. It’s a personal thing. They each have different reasons why they just can’t seem to ask another Chiropractor or consultant to assist them in something they can’t seem to overcome. This of course makes the problem worse because it goes unsolved, collects other problems too it until it all looks like a deep dark hole with the doctor at the bottom of this well looking up.

All it would take is the asking of a question of another, “What can I do to get and keep more new patients?” Getting the correct answer, implementing that answer and observing if the problem resolved. If it did then it would be time to ask another question and another until all your practice problems were resolved to your satisfaction.

I might be that person to ask the question of. Call me at 1-800-789-9931 or my direct line at (727) 445-7842 and find out.
