There is a lot of buzz lately within the profession in regards to becoming spinal care experts and increasing the utilization of chiropractic. I am a huge fan of more people using chiropractic care as a lifestyle choice. Most of the talk, however, is focused strictly on back pain. I believe we would be doing patients a disservice if all we did for them was to fix their back pain.
Attracting new patients is always a hot topic in the world of chiropractic. Many think that by satisfying the unquenchable thirst for new patients, all will be well. This mindset can be detrimental to the sustainable growth of your practice.

This can be dangerous for the profession and to chiropractors. We can all agree that the health-care system is failing; that we can’t afford the model that is being delivered. The question I pose to the profession is: why would we want to be a part of this sinking health-care ship?
If there is one thing Dr. Greg Stewart is most excited about in his new role as president of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), it is the opportunity to help advance the chiropractic profession as an equal player in the global health-care arena, helping solve some of the world’s most pressing health issues.
August 26, 2014 – The ice bucket challenge's phenomenal success is making other charitable organizations rethink how they connect with a younger generation of potential donors. Since the ALS Association, in Washington, DC, began tracking the campaign's progress on July 29, it has raised more than $88 million and generated 1.9 million new donors in what is one of the most viral philanthropic social media campaigns in history. ALS Canada has to date raised close to $8 million, surpassing its fundraising goal of $7.5 million through the ice bucket challenge campaign.
Transformation is a buzzword these days. When applied to leadership, it changes how we think and approach our team. It can very well serve to change how we approach our patients as well.
