Is Your Practice Candy, Vitamins or a Painkiller?


Candy, vitamin, or painkiller?

Which one of these best describes your practice?

In my experience, most Chiropractors are positioning themselves as a “vitamin”…

Good for you, but nothing urgent or overly important.

You can live with it, you can live without it, but you probably won’t remember much about the experience either way.

I’m not suggesting that’s conscious or even what you think about your service.

But it is what your market and some of your patients think.

In order to become the go-to resource for spinal, neurological, or functional health in your community, your potential prospects must believe that you have the “painkiller”.

And I don’t mean that literally.

I mean you must become the solution to a pressing, urgent problem they desperately want to solve.

How do you accomplish that in a 3rd Paradigm Chiropractic model?

That’s the topic for this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors. Read More

#143 How to Handle Patient Drop Outs


When I started my practice, I was 1000% convinced I would never lose a patient.

Call me naive, many have before…

I assumed if I simply taught them “what I knew, they would do what I do.”

Every other Chiropractor had it wrong.

I had it right.

Until it happened to me.

Which, by the way, took approximately 5 days into my practice life.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, Kreso and I take another break from Training Camp to discuss our once utopian views of practice, and how we now handle the reality without letting it minimize our impact or happiness. Read More

#142 Stop Blaming Your Market


Struggling with your marketing?

Crickets when you post a video to social?

No one is visiting your website?

You’ve created the world’s greatest lead magnet…

And not a single person has opted in?

It must be your market.

Really, it’s the only logical solution.

Similar to your patient who has “tried” everything and even followed your advice to a T.

Yes, sure they did. 🙂

When you have a marketing problem, the single most productive approach is to assume YOU, not your market, is the problem.

Even if you aren’t the only issue, it’s still the fastest, most controllable way to right the ship and get headed in the direction you’d like.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, Kreso and I get back together for a live discussion about markets. Read More

#141 5 Things Patients Must Believe Before Saying Yes


When a patient says no to our recommendations, we assume it’s always something we said or didn’t say, something we did or didn’t do.

That is the case sometimes, but far too often much of the information we could add to aid the decision-making process gets overlooked.

There’s an entire hierarchy of needs at work inside the patient’s mind and most often completely unknown to the patient themselves.

If we know and understand what the patient needs, we can tailor our information, environment, and efforts to ensure these “beliefs” are covered during our interactions.

The end result…

More yeses.

Happier patients.

Better outcomes.
