Patient Education

Why should you educate a patient in a fashion that allows them to fully understand what you are about to do? Simple, to solicit their help in the healing process. A patient who understands the process they are undergoing, assists with the process. A patient who doesn’t understand, misses appointments, drops out completely, doesn’t do their exercises or follow advice. Without the patient fully on board no sustained healing takes place.

Those patients that give you the most trouble are the ones that don’t understand how a chiropractor, physical therapist or nutritionist can in actual fact heal the person they are administering to. This is a proven fact, spiritual healing does take place between therapist and patient and the conduit is simple education and the application of a workable technique.

Use Simple Language

bjold03smWere I a Chiropractor I would use the term “misplaced vertebra” for “subluxation;” “first bone in the neck” for “atlas; “second bone in the neck” for “axis;” “flow of life-giving energy” for “mental impulse,” in explaining Chiropractic to a new patient or to someone wishing to know Chiropractic.

And I know that it works, because only recently I explained the principles of Chiropractic to an insurance adjuster who was trying to get an explanation of it for his company. The Chiropractor whom he consulted was a number one man and knows his business. He rattled off from memory the definition found on the front inside cover of “The Chiropractor;” but he failed to give the adjuster a concept of what Chiropractic is, what it does or why it does it. I then volunteered to explain it and did so without technical terms, and the adjuster went out of the office with something definite to write his company.

 

I could make quick converts to Chiropractic, because people believe what they SEE AND LOOK AT more readily than what they are told.

Chiropractic Education

EDUCATION IS USEFUL IF IT IS SIMPLE.

IF EDUCATION IS SIMPLE IT IS USEFUL.

Chiropractic was BORN a simple principle and practice. When ChiropracTIC was simple and ChiropracTORS WERE simple, Chiropractic and Chiropractors were getting sick people well.

Those that lived simple Chiropractic succeed.

Those that lived complexed fail.

Simple makes; Complex breaks!
