Works Great, the best thing is patients will use it. People do not want to lay on the floor or put their head in a harness at home. Always excuses, to much trouble, no time,ect.

Marketing for Chiropractors

November 4th, 2013

It is no secret that competition is fierce these days in many professional fields.  Although many chiropractic patients may come only when they are experiencing some sort of pain, it is important to remind your patients that regular chiropractic care has numerous health benefits.

Suggesting that they make a follow-up appointment can be a good way to keep patients coming back on a regular basis, but sometimes that just isn’t enough.  It is important to know how to market your business properly, so that people do not forget to come back.  With some basic marketing techniques, you can ensure that your practice is not forgotten, without being overbearing.

The internet is, of course, one of the best marketing tools for any kind of business.  Being able to reach out to people and have them also be able to contact you whenever needed is an incredibly valuable tool.  Social media websites such as Facebook or Linked In allow you to give friendly reminders about the benefits of chiropractic care, as well as other health information that you may wish to share.  Social media also allows patients to contact you with any questions or concerns.  Sending out weekly or monthly health email newsletters is another great way to keep in touch with patients.

Although the internet is certainly a free and effective way to market yourself, it is important to use a variety of communication channels.  Sending out monthly newsletters or flyers with health information (and some fun stuff too) is a nice gesture that will help to keep you top of mind in patient’s lives.  Sending out birthday cards is also a friendly way to keep a solid rapport with each and every valued patient.

A great way to drum up some business is to have a “patient appreciation day” where people can get discounted treatments, gift certificates, and other fun prizes.  Although discounted adjustments may not be ideal, it is highly likely that you will earn that money back in repeat business.  Patients respond quite well to being shown that they are valued, and you can be sure that at least a small percentage of those people will return again and again.

The most important marketing tool is the way that you run your business.  Keep your office completely clean, nicely decorated, and stocked with the latest and best products.  Working with quality equipment will help you to do your best, and your patients will be able to tell that you are truly committed to providing them with the highest quality care and service.

At Scriphessco.com, chiropractors can find the products that they require, easily, conveniently, and affordably.  Scrip Hessco’s massive inventory allows chiropractors to search for specific items, or browse for new and exciting options.  The most successful chiropractors are the ones that are constantly evolving and taking necessary steps to keep business fresh and interesting for the patients, as well as for themselves.

Dr. Spencer H. Baron talks about Biofreeze

Biofreeze products

“When considering a supplier and partner in my sports chiropractic work, several factors stand out for me. In particular, I value a leader that supports our industry and helps to improve and grow it.  That’s why I partner with Scrip and appreciate their long history of unparalleled commitment to the chiropractic community.

 

I also look for a partner that delivers the products that help me improve patient outcomes and athletic performance.  I find Scrip‘s pricing, service, and breadth of supplies and equipment to be unmatched. For example, it’s football season now, and time to stock up with Scrip on Biofreeze.  Using Biofreeze on trigger points and with soft tissue techniques adds to a rock solid adjustment for the athletes. Excellent consistency, NO residue, players ask for it!”

Sleep and Feel Better with a Cervical Pillow

July 29th, 2013

One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of health maintenance is slumber.  The average person spends approximately 100,000 hours of their life asleep1, so it is absolutely essential that steps are taken to make sure that those hours are used right.  Sleeping habits can play a major role in determining a person’s waking habits as well as overall health.

Poor sleeping habits can lead to a number of health issues.  A person who sleeps on a mattress or pillows that does not provide adequate back and neck support may experience a large variety of different health problems that stem directly from this common issue.    For instance, sleeping on a non-supportive pillow every night can cause the spine to slowly move, which can pinch a nerve, possibly causing severe chronic pain later in life.

Many chiropractors offer cervical therapeutic pillows, which are specifically designed to help people to get the best, healthiest sleep possible.  These pillows are contoured to make sure that the spine is straight and that the neck has the support that is essential for maintaining healthy sleeping habits.2

Everyone has different needs, so some people have the most success ordering a custom cervical pillow.  Visiting a chiropractor and speaking to them about the available options is an excellent step that can lead to years of better sleeping and healthier living.  These may cost a little bit more than most pillows, but the results are worth it.  Remember that most people spend at least a third of their lives lying down in bed, so why not make that significant amount of time as pleasant as possible?

These cervical pillows have other benefits as well.  Many people struggle with snoring or breathing problems while they sleep.  Cervical pillows do not just align the spine; they also keep the airways straight.  This can help people to sleep more soundly, receive necessary amounts of oxygen, and even help reduce snoring!3

It can be difficult to achieve a natural and neutral sleeping position without the right supplies.  Cervical chiropractic pillows are an investment in many years of comfortable and healthy sleeping, which will inevitably help the user to feel better in many ways.

Chiropractors buy chiropractic supplies such as cervical pillows for their patients from Scriphessco.com because they know that they will receive pro-quality products without paying premium prices.

For more than 40 years, Scrip Hessco has been the leading full-service distributor of supplies and equipment to the chiropractic industry.  Rely on Scrip Hessco to help you serve your patients and grow your business with popular resale items such as cervical pillows.

Improve Patient Health by Offering Vitamins and Supplements

July 26th, 2013

In order to keep things diverse and interesting, many chiropractors choose to sell health-related products to their patients.  This is beneficial for many reasons.  Offering unique products and services is one of the easiest and most effective ways to gain new patients, and keep the old ones coming back in again and again.  Not everyone gets chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis, so offering other health products is a great way to give them a reason to come in more often.

It is always a good idea to offer products that help to improve a chiropractic adjustment.  Cleansing teas like Chiro-Klenz are an excellent way to compliment a chiropractic adjustment.  This tea will help to cleanse the body of toxic buildup, which will in turn make the chiropractic adjustment work better. (1)  The body is interconnected and taking a full wellness approach to patient’s health is always going to make the end results better.

Another great idea is to offer natural, safe dietary supplements.  There are plenty to choose from, and it is definitely important for you to do some research before you offer them to your patients.  There are dietary supplements out there that may not be safe, so it is important that you seek out only the ones that you truly believe in.  Some dietary supplements are for appetite control, others are for colon cleansing, and others help to improve the digestive system.

Vitamins are one of the most common supplementary products found in chiropractor’s offices.  There are certain vitamins that are designed for specific purposes.  For example, the Total Joint Complex vitamin supplement has ingredients that make it highly effective as a treatment for osteoarthritis. (2)

Fish oil is another excellent supplement to offer patients who are looking for a way to get omega-3 fatty acids, which is high in vitamins, minerals, and protein.  Studies suggest that fish oil is highly beneficial for many common diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, asthma, and depression, just for starters. (3)

Echinacea is a powerful herb that has many extraordinary health benefits.  Taking Echinacea supplements on a daily basis will boost the immune system, and will also treat or prevent common illnesses like the common cold and the flu. (4)  This incredibly versatile supplement is used to treat a myriad of afflictions, including acid indigestion, pain, tonsillitis, strep throat, and much more.

There are plenty of other wonderful vitamins and supplements that a chiropractor can offer.  It is very important to take some time to learn about each one, so that you can stand behind your products.  Being able to recommend various supplements based on a patient’s specific needs will help to make you a more reliable source of information, and thus a better healer.

Laser Therapy is an Excellent Addition to a Chiropractic Office

July 24th, 2013

Offering new and exciting products and services in chiropractic care is an easy and profitable way to expand your business and grow revenue.  Many chiropractors also find that by using new treatments, they can improve their patient outcomes.

One treatment that is quickly gaining acclaim is laser therapy.  Although lasers are still a relatively new technology, new uses for them are continually being developed.  It is documented that light in its various forms can actually affect the body’s health1, and lasers are essentially concentrated light that can be used to alleviate pain, promote healing, and reduce inflammation from injury.

The basic concept of laser therapy is kind of like adding fuel to a vehicle.  As the light source is placed against the skin, the light photons are absorbed by the mitochondria in the skin, providing cells with more energy to help the body to heal more efficiently and at a faster rate.  The end result is that the laser treatment helps to restore the body’s cell’s function and morphology2.

Although laser treatment may sound rather intimidating, the reality is that it is a painless procedure.  In fact, many professionals who practice laser therapy use it in conjunction with massage, aromatherapy, pain-reducing sprays, topical analgesics, and other pleasant natural healing and pain reducing methods.

Like any healthcare treatment, before practicing laser therapy it is important to learn how to perform this procedure properly.  You want to be sure that you are providing the best possible service to your loyal and new patients, especially if it is a new treatment you are offering.

Laser therapy is just one of many exciting new holistic treatments that are emerging these days.  If you want to remain a reliable source of information and health news, it is important that you keep up with the latest technology.  Take the time to learn about the many new products and services that you can add to a regular appointment.

For quality laser therapy products, as well as other chiropractic supplies and equipment, visit Scriphessco.com.  With their full product line, they carry all laser models from Class 1 to Class 4.  Call 800-237-5652 to learn more about hand-free laser applications.  For more than 40 years, chiropractors have shopped at Scrip Hessco to find all of their chiropractic supplies and equipment from one source at the best prices, saving time, money, and shipping.

Provide Patients with Quick Pain Relief Using Topical Analgesics

June 25th, 2013

An analgesic, or pain reliever, is often used to help a person to cope with pain.  Although analgesics may not offer a solution to the pain, they do make managing it much easier.  For muscle and joint pain, topical analgesics are ideal.  Many people deal with chronic pain on a regular basis, and topical analgesics are one of the most effective and convenient ways to alleviate pain safely.

A topical analgesic is usually a gel, lotion, or cream that is applied externally to the skin.  Depending on the brand, these will give a warming, cooling, or tingling sensation that temporarily reduces pain.

After an injury one of the first things that a person will usually do is to apply ice or some other sort of cold item.  This will help to reduce pain immediately, but it offers other benefits as well.  Cold temperatures help to quickly reduce swelling and inflammation, which will help the body to heal faster and recover properly1.

Healthcare professionals recommend icing an injury multiple times per day as the safest treatment2, but for most people that is not practical.  Many who suffer from chronic pain do not have the luxury of staying home all day applying ice to their body.  Many health-conscious people are also adamantly against taking narcotic pain relievers, especially when driving, at work, or in other situations when their judgment and automotive skills may be impaired.  For those times, topical analgesics are the perfect solution.

Of course, when it comes to dealing with pain, the best approach is to find the root of the pain and treat it.  However, that may take a long time, and some chronic conditions must be managed as they cannot be resolved.  Alternatively, it is important to be able to get some relief and carry on with life as much as possible.  Topical analgesics help injuries and pain to be less intrusive.  Simply applying them to the sore area a few times per day will make a world of difference.

Many holistic health professionals like massage therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists, like to give their patients a natural pain-relief option to bring home with them after an appointment.  Of course, most healing treatments take multiple sessions to truly work, so it is nice to be able to provide patients with a safe alternative to pharmaceuticals in between appointments.  Additionally, this can provide healthcare professionals with some extra retail revenue that is not only profitable, but will also help to attract new patients.

At Scriphessco.com, practitioners can find the best topical analgesics on the market at competitive prices for their patients’ treatment as well as for retail sales.  Scrip Hessco is an online retailer of chiropractic supplies and equipment that has earned many loyal customers by providing brand-name products at the lowest prices possible.

For more than 40 years, Scrip Hessco has been the leading full-service distributor of supplies and equipment to the chiropractic industry.  Rely on Scrip Hessco to help you serve your patients and grow your business with popular resale items.

Three Ideas for Adding Retail to a Chiropractic Office

June 17th, 2013

In any business situation, it is important to grow and progress to keep up with modern demands.  These days, the most successful businesses are the ones who offer unique products and services that can’t be found elsewhere. The same is true for chiropractors.

In order to bring in extra revenue, many chiropractors try to offer other products in addition to their adjustments.  Becoming a source of unique products or services is a simple and effective way to attract new clients in the area and also keep loyal customers interested.  Carrying natural products that will benefit patients will also prove that the chiropractor is dedicated to the pursuit of healthy living.

Plenty of products are available today that can be incorporated in the chiropractor’s office.  Part of a chiropractor’s job is staying on top of the latest health advancements and sharing that information with their patients.  People expect their chiropractor to be committed to wellness and offering some of these excellent products is a great way to go above and beyond for each valued customer.

1.  Topical Analgesics.  Chiropractors are known for promoting non-pharmaceutical pain reducing options, and topical analgesics are an ideal product to offer.  These gels and creams are a  healthy way to reduce chronic pain from home.  Offering cooling or warming properties when applied, these help to reduce swelling and inflammation, while offering the user substantial relief from pain.  A tube of Biofreeze, for example, will last for quite some time, and can alleviate pain at home, at work, in the car, or anywhere else where icing may not be convenient.

2.  Cervical Pillows.  It is quite common for poor sleeping habits to cause neck and back problems. Many pillows and mattresses don’t provide the support that the average person requires, which means that they are putting undue pressure on their spine and neck as they sleep. (1)  Cervical pillows provide a better option than standard pillows and are ergonomically designed to keep the spine and neck as straight as possible.  This will provide a better night’s sleep and reduce tension on the body.

3.  Nutritional Supplements.  The goal of chiropractic is to live a  healthy lifestyle, and vitamins, supplemental cleansing teas, and foods, shakes, and sport drinks all go hand in hand with the basic wellness principles generally adhered to by chiropractors.  Teas like Chiro-Klenz may help to make a chiropractic adjustment more effective by cleansing the body of toxins beforehand.

These three products are a wonderful addition to any Chiropractor’s office.  A chiropractor can help his or her patients learn about new products and ideas that can directly benefit their lives, while bringing in some additional revenue in the process.  At Scriphessco.com there are plenty of quality options that will make adding a retail aspect to a chiropractic office simple.

For more than 40 years, Scrip Hessco has been the leading full-service distributor of supplies and equipment to the chiropractic industry.  Rely on Scrip Hessco to help you serve your patients and grow your business with popular resale items.
