Management
I became a chiropractic student in the fall of 1999 and graduated in the winter of 2002. I started my own practice six weeks later. Ever since, I have been finding ways to use and manipulate time to improve the quality of treatment I deliver and enhance the overall patient experience.
How we communicate today is vastly different from how we did just a few years ago. Texting, social media, and quick emails have become the preferred method over more traditional channels. However, it can be argued that this trend has resulted in older methods being more impactful and effective. After all, when was the last time you marked a handwritten letter as spam?
The way we prepare ourselves and our clinic to receive and serve patients can have a significant impact on our future – and theirs.
Albert Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.”
The ultimate goal for chiropractors and massage therapists is better health for our mutual patients.

Ontario's low back pain strategy and how this program can raise the profile of the chiropractic profession will be the topic of the keynote presentation at the upcoming Canadian Chiropractor Business Forum on June 13, 2015, at McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, Ont.
There is no doubt that chiropractors have to constantly balance responsibilities. Not only do we have to be great healers, we need to be effective communicators and marketers, and have the responsibility of doing all the small things necessary to run a business. Having said this, however, the primary focus should always be the delivery of excellent care to the patient in front of you. This is the most fruitful and efficient way to grow your practice.  
Businesses need to generate a rhythm in order to generate consistent cash flow. This requires repetition of delivering a quality product in a routine fashion. Interruptions break routine, which promote chaos over order. If you study how the business calendar is designed you can see that when it comes to building momentum to spark growth in our practice, the odds are stacked against us due to frequent changes in routine.
