How do you educate your patients about chiropractic?

“I educate my patients by showing them their posture in all 3 axis on every visit as well as explaining each of the examination test and findings as well as letting them know what nerves are being affected adversely and what organs they supply. I educate them every visit by telling them about their posture and activities of daily living and why it’s so important for the spine to be in good biomechanical condition because it affects the nervous system adversely if they are misaligned/Subluxated. Most of the new patients have been to my website and My YouTube Channel, so they have a pretty good education by just watching and listening to me treat actual patients in my office.”

  1. Initial visit:
    Posture Pro Picture first
    Review of history and systems.
    Innate Intelligence.
    II expressed through nervous system, controlling and coordinating system..
    Stress building up in system interferes with II communication to the cells of the body, and interfering with healing.
    I talk about in an old injury or symptom that the cells are new…a whole new body every 2 years. Talk about why with new cells they are expressing themselves the same way.
    I talk about my technique (NSA) and that the largest research study ever done in the field was on NSA.
    I go on to explain NSA.
    I discuss difference between structural and facillitated interference and different ways of addressing them.
    I talk about defense posture(fight or flight) and how it occurs, what it’s effects can be.
    I am always relating this intro to why the person came to see me.
    Then I discuss how the work I do can help them to recover, adapt and perceive “stressors” differently. This leads to when we are not in defense out posture naturally returns to a more normal state, tension is released from spinal cord, nervous system and II can communicate more efficiently, healing can be more effective and all the wonderful results in the research can start to come about.
    During initial exam, I again bring attention to f/f posture. I position the head to where it should be. Help them notice how weird it feels because it is a pattern in the nervous system. During the adjusting process I bring their attention to the breath, the changes in heel tension and muscle tone. I have them feel an area where they are carrying tension before adjustment and after.
    As the practice member sits up I draw their attention to the change in posture(there always is).
    We go over the posture pro picture, the distortions and how they relate to why the person is in my office.
    . Discuss early care and frequent visits and why that’s important. Discuss goals for level one of care. I go over our re-evaluation process and what I expect to see at that reevaluation. (30-40% improvement in posture pro numbers). Check it out on our website.
    I discuss what they may experience during early care both during and between visits.
    Those are the basics.
