Share Your Values

Share your #1 value on a regular basis: your ideas about health and your profession – the outcomes you desire for your patients and practice. Your number one value drives what you expect from your employees – their job descriptions. It also drives what you expect in terms of work load and production – your practice statistics. Only once you have communicated your number one value and have confirmed that your team members understand your number one value, have you created the basis for trust.

All of the studies say that patients leave their healthcare providers because they don’t trust them. Establishing trust begins with a patient’s first visit. Just as with your practice team, communicate your number one value (your ideas about health and your profession) with your patients. Your number one value includes the outcomes you expect for your patients in terms of their behavior – that you expect them to comply with your recommendations. It also includes what you expect in terms of production from your patients – their referrals. When you communicate your values with your patients, you give yourself the gift of patients who support your vision. Share your #1 value as part of your routine – include it in the paperwork, welcome letter, practice brochure, and mission statement that new patients see when they come to your practice. Your paperwork is not just an exercise in organization – it’s a way to share your values.

Become a master at uncovering the common denominator – those shared values which create the bonds of trust that enable others to align their values with yours. In a value sharing environment you get out what you put in. Commit to sharing your values and you will pass the ultimate test – you’ll experience the compelling difference the bonds of trust make in your practice and personal relationships.

Consider the DC-MD Practice

Consider the DC-MD Practice

Consolidation and integration. Once considered phenomena, now are marked trends in the healthcare industry. Market forces and decreases in revenue are driving practice consolidation within chiropractic — a movement already familiar to the medical community where less than 30 percent of medical doctors remain in private practice.

In chiropractic, the solo practitioner will soon be equally rare. Economic reality demands — and rewards — diversification of patient services, a kind of one-stop healthcare experience for patients.

Despite economics and trends, you may be wrestling with the decision to convert to a multi-disciplinary practice. Allopathic medicine has traditionally been at odds with chiropractic. How can the two philosophies coexist in one clinic? If these are your worries, rest assured: It is indeed possible for you to establish a multi-disciplinary practice that honors the art, science and philosophy of the chiropractic profession.

In the DC-MD practice, the healthcare delivery team communicates regularly with each other about each patient. This team approach allows the practice to maximize benefits to your patients by offering a broader scope of services that those available in a stand-alone medical or chiropractic clinic and delivers these services in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Chiropractors have been attempting to change the healthcare system from the “outside in” for over a century. Now is the time for you to heed your own philosophy and realize that health comes from the “inside out”. Converting your practice to a DC-MD multi-disciplinary facility is a way for you to insure that the profession of chiropractic is robust and thriving for future generations to come.

The Growing Popularity of Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies treat the whole person, targeting the cause of illness rather than its symptoms. This White Paper, “Healthcare Revolution: The Growing Popularity of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM),” explores why a growing number of healthcare professionals and consumers are adopting CAM – and changing the fabric of the U.S. healthcare system.

CAM’s patient-centric approach emphasizes prevention and individualized programs of care:

• Studies show that massage therapy (MT) increases endorphins and serotonin, chemicals that act as natural painkillers and mood regulators.
• Chiropractic treatment of neck pain provides more relief than over-the-counter drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen.
• Acupuncture has been studied for a wide range of pain conditions, such as post-operative dental pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis and tennis elbow.

CAM’s growing popularity highlights a number of opportunities to explore alternative therapies that can be incorporated with conventional medicine.

Acupuncture May Change the Way the Brain Perceives Pain

Monday, December 6th, 2010

The idea of pricking your body with needles in order to relieve pain seems nothing if not counter intuitive, but thousands of acupuncture patients swear the treatments are effective in addressing pain of all kinds.

But how does it work? How much of the relief is due to the placebo effect — the mere perception that the needles are actually dulling pain — as opposed to a real biological change in the way nerves signal the brain to pain?

A new study lends support to the notion that acupuncture may actually modulate the brain’s perception of pain. In a study that used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to track brain activity both before and during acupuncture, researchers led by Dr. Nina Theysohn at the University Hospital in Essen, Germany, and colleagues at University of Duisburg-Essen documented a specific pattern of brain activation during acupuncture that may represent an accessible pathway for addressing pain.

In the small trial, which involved 18 volunteers, each volunteer was placed in the fMRI scanner and then given a small electrical stimulus in the left ankle to generate pain. Acupuncture needles were then inserted at three places on the right side corresponding to regions known to modulate the ankle pain, and the fMRI was repeated. Comparing the brain scans before and after acupuncture, the scientists found that areas of the brain that were active during the pain stimulus were dampened during acupuncture, suggesting that the needles actually do cause a change in the way that the brain perceives and processes pain.
