Observation before touch:
4 important sources of information.
By Perry Nickelston, DC, FMS, SFMA
Legendary former New York Yankees baseball player Yogi Berra once said, "You can observe a lot just by watching." He would have been a great chiropractor. We are trained to become experts with our hands: palpation, adjusting, soft-tissue release, etc. Touch is critical for our work, helping us to discover what may be causing a patient's pain and treating it appropriately.

As long as I have been in practice, the travel card has stood as the primary style of documentation for chiropractic. It is quick, simple and direct. Unfortunately, the rules have changed. Travel cards may still have a place in the contemporary practice, but if that is your only form of documentation, you will soon find yourself with a wave of treatment denials due to insufficient documentation.

Yes, it's harsh. Patients don't like to admit it. They have an unspoken plan when they first visit you: to come one time, get rid of their pain and then get rid of you. They know it's unrealistic, but they'd like to pay nothing for this service. The best thing you can do as their doctor is create an environment so they'll want to get all necessary care to correct their spines.

The Michigan Association of Chiropractors has joined the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress as its first group member. Group member status is achieved by committing to an annual contribution of $10 per "qualified stakeholder," consisting of DCs who practice full-time and pay full association dues.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also referred to as photobiomodulation, has been increasingly utilized in the clinical setting over the past decade. Although laser technology has been around for some time, improved clinical outcomes have led providers to discover and implement laser therapy into their practices. In addition to the chiropractic practice setting, laser therapy is used in hospitals, sports facilities, veterinary offices and rehabilitation centers.
