Opinion
I am a proud chiropractor – it is part of who I am. Most days, I adjust patients and work on reports. I take the time to learn and be better at what I do.
On occasion, I have observed the indignation of detractors when a chiropractor is identified as Dr. X. There is usually a short and concise vitriolic declaration stating opposition to the formal designation.
I read with interest the article by Dr. Joe Ghorayeb DC, MHA entitled, “What Is Chiropractic?”.
When asked what chiropractic is, most – if not all – chiropractors will express the following sentiment to some degree: a health profession concerned with the assessment and management of conditions related to the spine, joints, nervous system and soft tissues.
Within the piece, Chapin intends to clear the public confusion surrounding chiropractic care. 
Reason (verb) "The power of comprehending, inferring, or thinking especially in orderly rational ways"
This Jan. 1, Ontario residents who are 24 and younger rang in the new year with a pretty big upgrade to their health care: something called "OHIP+", which gave young people a government insurance plan for prescription drugs.
The longer I practice, the harder it is to give business practice advice because what works for one person doesn’t work for another.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Mumbai, India, for the Sant Nirankari Mission, a five-day spiritual event attended by millions of devotees from different parts of India.
Toronto (Troy Media) – Canadians suffer when important mental health services are unavailable or wait times are too long.
Each year, there are at least one million unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures done in Canadian health-care settings. This means that hundreds of thousands of Canadians are exposed to potential harm by unnecessary care.
I was horrified to see that 47 per cent of our profession is in favour of the move to expand the chiropractic scope of practice to include limited prescription rights. This is according to results from the recent Canadian Chiropractor Practice Trends Survey.
Rising business costs, government mandated minimum wage increases, hikes in chiropractic licence fees, spikes in our association premiums, cut-backs by insurance companies and changes in the auto injury guidelines – these are only some of the barriers chiropractors have to deal with when running their practice. These obstacles are enough to drive the most successful practices out of business.
I write this final column with mixed emotions. I am a little sombre that it is time for me to move on; at the same time feel excited to leave you with my biggest pearls that you can use to create success in your practice.
