HOW TO BYPASS THE ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Do you need more new patients to feed the growth of your practice? Are you tired of those training programs that claim to provide the missing piece in improving your effectiveness; only to find that it is yet another technique that is only applicable to a small segment of your patient base? Have you been grappling with how to increase your cash flow and profits in spite of rapidly rising overheads? Are you investing too much of your time and energy in your practice, and not enough time living the lifestyle that you spend all day telling everyone else to live? Are you sick and tired of the public perception or misconception of what you do? “Oh you’re a chiropractor? I’ll come and see you one day if my sore back doesn’t get better by itself!” Have you ever struggled with your confidence and certainty in practice?

My name’s Nick Hodgson and I face all the same struggles that you do in private practice. I’ve started two practices from scratch, bought and managed a successful practice for eighteen years, employed and mentored associates. And at the same time I have organised countless training programs featuring some of the world’s top chiropractic presenters, culminating in my being awarded the Victorian Chiropractor of the Year in 2005, for contributions to the profession. More recently I have been honoured to be the Australasian Training Provider for Torque Release Technique and would like to invite you to join me at one of our programs this year.

TRT is the first chiropractic technique developed through a scientific research project, published in major medical journals, and then featured on the Discovery Health Channel. But the real benefit occurred when TRT escaped the peer reviewed journals and entered the average chiropractic practice. The overwhelming conclusion has been that TRT is the 21st century upgrade that improves a chiropractor’s life without compromising clinical results or ethics.

You see it has answered the two biggest chiropractic questions: “How do you offer your patients the best possible improvements in their health and quality of life, AND AT THE SAME TIME minimise the amount of work that you have to do to achieve these great results?”

Solving these two dilemmas resolves all stressors in the life of a Chiropractor: If your patients get great results, they get excited and they refer and spread the word, and they comply with your recommendations, because they are impressed. And if you get great results with the minimum of effort then you can either make more money by seeing more people, and/or you can spend less time in your rooms and more time on your lifestyle.

But don’t just listen to me: Here’s a sample of some Chiropractors’ personal experiences…

“I have been amazed at the results I’ve been getting out of this process. I would never have believed this to be possible with such a simple technique.” AC, South Africa

“Certainly this technique changed my life… has really helped me finally understand what Chiropractic is and man was I wrong.” CS, USA

“With your help I am able to make a very smooth transition from a pain practice to a wellness practice. ” TG, USA

“It was the best conference and technique seminar I have ever been to. It provided me with some very timely answers to a lot of questions that had been coming up for me, especially about knowing that Chiropractic and being a Chiropractor is truly what I am here for, but being endlessly frustrated by it (me) just not working the best I knew it (I) could. That was until I learnt about primary subluxations and non-linear adjusting.” JR, Australia

“I have found TRT to be the first technique to be superior to what I have done in the last twenty seven years… I have seen intriguing and wonderful results with TRT.” PR, Australia.

It’s so rewarding to get lots of this feedback after every training program…

And the huge advantage of TRT training is that what you learn can be implemented in any style of chiropractic practice:

You love to manually adjust? TRT will show you how to get bigger changes by adjusting less segments – the ones that really need it: You’ll become more specific, more precise and more confident with your adjustments.

Looking for a low-force alternative? We’ll introduce you to the Integrator, the adjusting instrument which was purpose designed, built and patented to correct subluxations. Not like those instruments which are adapted medical instruments. The Integrator offers pre-loading trigger, incredibly high speed, recoil and torque to produce a three dimensional adjustment which has been measured to produce big shifts in state of wellbeing.

See yourself as more of a craftsman than a technician? You will love the fourteen diagnostic indicators of subluxation, and the precise differential diagnosis system to identify the Primary Subluxation at any moment in time, with built in safe guards and review methods to track the response to each and all of your adjustments.

Prefer High Volume? With the assessment and adjusting system you take back to your office, you will be stunned with how quickly you can deliver a magical adjustment. No matter how many patients you currently see – you will be able to see more in less time.

Believe that Chiropractic is more about the nervous system than the musculoskeletal system? Then you need an assessment and adjusting system that breaks out of the mechanistic orthopaedic mould.

You have a Wellness focus? Then you’ll need an approach which breaks out of the mechanistic back pain model and into a neurological state of wellbeing model – TRT offers a unique selling proposition which has the ability to improve quality of life.

You like to be on the cutting edge? TRT has a pedigree of research and development and the next few years promise some revolutionary upgrades to what is already one of the most exciting breakthroughs in chiropractic’s history.

You’re committed to excellence? You see profits and patient numbers as secondary to the quality of the service that you provide, and you are more interested in the product than the profit: TRT is definitely for you as there are no hard sales techniques attached – it’s less about convincing patients that they have to see you forever; and more about providing such great results that they tell you they’ll be seeing you forever.

CHIROPRACTIC EVOLUTION

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Through the mid-nineties pivotal chiropractic research was conducted and was published at the beginning of the 21st Century, and yet a large segment of the profession missed it! Why?

1) The findings weren’t published in a peer-reviewed chiropractic journal – they were actually published in two major psychiatric journals; the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry (published by Nature) and the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs: No chiropractor would have received these journals in their post-box.

2) The research involved a patient population commonly ignored by comfortable middle-class chiropractors, namely an addicted population. But this study population was chosen for very specific scientific reasons – they biogenetically possess an inability to achieve a state of wellbeing.

Why was this research potentially so paradigm shifting for the chiropractic profession?

1) The design of the study was overseen by a leading medical biostatistician from the University of Miami, School of Medicine: Nothing was included in the study unless it stood up to his rigorous statistical and evidence-based standards.

2) The study involved randomization, and all of the scientific design expected of longitudinal clinical research, and, three-arms – not just active treatment and control groups, but also a placebo-control group.

3) The acceptance and rejection of various chiropractic examination procedures which lead to a short-list of evidence-based indicators of Subluxation, ultimately synthesizing a technique for analyzing and differentially diagnosing a Primary Subluxation.

4) The need to design an adjusting instrument that provided true reproducibility of the adjustive thrust and the vectors of the classic chiropractic adjustment – the Toggle Recoil.

5) Acceptance of the research results by peer review panels far more rigorous and skeptical than normal chiropractic peer review.

6) A documentary featured on Discovery Health Channel highlighting the findings of the research and giving chiropractic a glowing review.

What was so impressive about the results? To understand this we need to tell you a little about the clients accepted into the trial: These were recovering addicts with many substance-abusing habits, who were undergoing normal 30-day withdrawal in an in-patient facility… Nasty stuff: Major withdrawals, cravings, severe physical and mental symptoms, abstinence-based challenges… all going on at the same time. What happened when they received specific chiropractic adjustments?

1) They finished the program: The gold-standard of recovery is how many clients make it to the end of the thirty days? Good rehab facilities achieve somewhere around 70% retention. When they were adjusted as well, the retention rate increased to 100%… That’s right no-one left! In recovery circles it is common knowledge that if someone drops out of care it isn’t because they’ve started a new job, or had a miraculous healing and didn’t need to hang around. No, they’ll usually be back in their old haunts doing the same old stuff. This finding is huge – if they stayed they must have been doing really well.

2) Their anxiety levels dropped dramatically: This research project didn’t just measure one outcome, it also utilized internationally accepted state of wellbeing questionnaires: When the clients were adjusted the Spielberger’s State of Anxiety Test scores dropped the same amount that it normally takes six months of standard care to achieve.

3) Their depression levels dropped markedly. When the clients were adjusted the Beck’s depression inventory scores dropped the same amount that it normally takes twelve months of standard care to achieve.

4) They didn’t need the usual nursing and first-aid measures demanded by this population. Nursing station visits are actually the biggest overheads in running a rehab facility: When the clients were adjusted only 9% needed to make any nursing station visits – the placebo and normal care groups made visits in 56% and 48% of cases respectively (that’s right the placebo group was more miserable than the normal care group – so much for the argument that chiropractic is a good placebo – this suggest it’s actually a “nocebo”!)

Now wait a minute I hear many of you saying – “I have no interest in treating drug addicts in my practice, so why would I want to learn a technique to treat them?”

Here is the point… the CHIROPRACTIC IN THIS STUDY DID NOT TREAT ADDICTION, IT ADJUSTED SUBLUXATIONS. The in-patient program treated the addiction with the normal abstinence strategies, group therapy, counseling etc. The chiropractic produced massive increases in state of wellbeing, helping the recovery to be more effective. You need to learn how to produce such massive increases in state of wellbeing to, in all of your practice members…

Isn’t this what great chiropractic is about? We don’t fix them, but when we adjust them their body’s healing and recuperative processes are exponentially released to fulfill their true potential – great chiropractic that is…

So why would you learn Torque Release Technique the chiropractic model that evolved through this scientific process?

1) Wouldn’t you love your client retention to reach record proportions? There’s only one thing that really increases retention – RESULTS. You might be a great salesperson and be able to coerce people into hanging around, but when they FEEL the benefits they don’t need any convincing.

2) No-one refers like an excited customer: Do you think that massive changes in emotional and mental status would excite your clients? When their back pain’s gone they quickly forget why they are coming to see you: But when the lights get turned on every adjustment, you’ll be impressed when they start to ask if it is alright for them to regularly come back for more, and and can they bring someone else with them?

3) If we are truly a wellness profession, then our clients’ dependence on symptomatic and crisis care should start to vanish. How thankful do you think your clients will be when they notice how they aren’t spending so much on panadol, panadeine and nurofen, and they no longer have to spend ages sitting in the MD’s waiting room with all those miserably infectious people? How much easier will your practice hours be when no-one is winging and whining about their latest ache?

4) Wouldn’t you like to get to the end of the day after having seen more clients than ever before, and not be emotionally and physically spent? With TRT you can speed up your decision making, reduce the number of adjustments per visit, and minimise all the extra stuff you do trying to hit the right spot.

5) So you can be sure you are using the most evidence-based technique ever available to the chiropractic profession. Make sure you have total proficiency in the procedures accepted by one of medicine’s top biostatisticians – discover if you’re wasting your time doing stuff that was rejected?

6) So you can access the Integrator Adjusting Instrument, the only instrument with pre-loading, recoil, torque, stunningly high speed (1/10,000 sec), low force, and neurologically-based impulse frequency.

7) To be trained in the technique that provides you with the vitalistic, tonal, non-linear, neurologically-based adjusting technique to go hand-in-hand with your vitalistic chiropractic philosophy – Leave behind the mechanistic methods that have held back chiropractic practice in the twentieth century.
