As a chiropractor, you’ve worked tirelessly to improve your patients’ quality of life and build your practice – and then you get a two-star rating on Google. No one likes a bad review and you don’t want it affecting your business.
Halifax, N.S. — There's a new website aimed at helping Canadians find their ideal chiropractor. Chiropractors.ca has completed its first month of operations, demonstrating encouraging growth.

My research verified that while many non-health-care professions who work with pro teams get paid – chiropractors are merely volunteers. For this follow-up piece, I look to answer the question: How are chiropractic practitioners treated in other sports, namely the Olympics and Major League Baseball.

The Internet and social media have changed our world.
Your personal identity may fall at the mercy of sophisticated hackers on many websites, but when it comes to health data breaches, hospitals, doctors offices and even insurance companies are oftentimes the culprits.
I recently predicted that health data from electronic sources could soon be compiled into a health or wellness report and shared with insurance companies to help them determine who they’ll cover.
When it comes to understanding what makes people tick—and get sick—medical science has long assumed that the bigger the sample of human subjects, the better. New research suggests this big-data approach may be wildly off the mark.
