Resources to turn your patients into chiropractic advocates
Informed patients can be the best advocates for chiropractic and your practice. But how do you start the conversation? The fact that the U.S. has an identified “opioid epidemic” that’s often in the news can be a good way to start talking about the benefits of chiropractic.
Thanks to Palmer College and the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, you have lots of great materials to research and print out for your patients about the chiropractic solution to the opioid epidemic. Palmer has produced a number of free, downloadable charts and graphs on the results of our 2015 and 2016 Gallup-Palmer reports (go to www.palmer.edu/gallup-report), with new charts on the 2017 report coming in September.
The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has produced some excellent communication tools on the chiropractic solution to the opioid epidemic. You can find position papers and toolkits on their website at www.f4cp.org, along with position papers on the topics of “Chiropractic: A Safer Strategy than Opioids” (co-authored by Palmer’s West Campus President William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., F.P.A.C.) and “Chiropractic: A Key to America’s Opioid Exit Strategy” (co-authored by Dr. Meeker and Sherry McAllister, D.C., West ’96).
Check out the resources from Palmer and the Foundation, and start talking to your patients about chiropractic as the effective, conservative, drug-free solution to America’s opioid epidemic.
