Balancing Tradition and Innovation:

Evolving Your Chiropractic Practice with Technology 

 

Chiropractic care has long been rooted in tradition, focusing on manual adjustments, personalized patient care, and a holistic approach to health.  

Yet, as we move further into the digital age, technology integration offers unprecedented opportunities to enhance these traditional practices, streamline workflows, and improve patient outcomes.  

Let’s explore how modern tools can transform each aspect of your chiropractic business, making the leap from traditional methods to innovative solutions. 

 

Traditional Practice vs. Innovative Solutions 

 

  • Patient Intake and Record-Keeping 

Traditional: Paper forms, manual entry into desktop-based systems, and physical filing cabinets have been the backbone of patient intake and record-keeping.  

This method is time-consuming and prone to errors or loss. 

Innovative: Digital intake solutions and cloud-based Electronic Health Records (EHR) streamline the process, improving accuracy and accessibility.  

Platforms like Genesis Chiropractic Software offer secure, efficient ways to manage patient records, reducing paperwork and freeing up time for patient care. 

  • Diagnosis and Treatment Planning 

Traditional: Diagnosis has relied heavily on physical examinations and static imaging techniques, with treatment plans often communicated verbally or through printed materials. 

Innovative: Advanced imaging technologies and AI-driven diagnostic tools provide more precise assessments.  

New platforms offer dynamic, real-time insights into a patient’s condition, while AI algorithms can suggest customized treatment plans that adapt over time. 

  • Home Exercise Programs 

Traditional: Traditionally, chiropractors would prescribe home exercises using printed handouts.  

This method, while effective, lacked personalization and adaptability, often resulting in a one-size-fits-all approach to aftercare. 

Innovative: Today, there are digital platforms that allow chiropractors to prescribe tailored exercise programs directly to patients’ smartphones. These programs can be updated in real time, based on symptoms and progress, thanks to AI integration.  

This not only enhances patient engagement and adherence but also provides a more dynamic and responsive approach to home care. 

  • Patient Education and Engagement 

Traditional: Patient education typically involved brochures, posters, and face-to-face discussions.  

While informative, these methods limited the amount and depth of information shared. 

Innovative: Online platforms and apps offer interactive and engaging ways to educate patients about their conditions, treatments, and progress.  

  • Marketing and Patient Retention 

Traditional: Word of mouth, local advertising, and community involvement have been the mainstay of chiropractic marketing and patient retention strategies. 

Innovative: Digital marketing strategies, including social media, email newsletters, and SEO, reach wider audiences more effectively.  

Patient engagement platforms now automate appointment reminders, follow-ups, and reviews, improving patient retention and satisfaction. 

  • Embracing the Future: Your Invitation to Innovate 

As we look towards the future of chiropractic care, the integration of technology not only streamlines operations but also significantly enhances the patient’s experience and treatment outcomes.  

The juxtaposition of tradition and innovation presents a pathway to a more efficient, effective, and patient-centered practice.

TMD: Empowering Leaders: A Mastermind Weekend’s Key Takeaways

TMD: Empowering Leaders: A Mastermind Weekend’s Key Takeaways

Two Minute Drill: Empowering Leaders – A Mastermind Weekend’s Key Takeaways

 

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. I’m here with my very good friend, Dr. Kevin Christie. We attended his mastermind this weekend. It was the first West Coast mastermind for Kevin’s new group, an awesome gathering of folks. Right now, we are in the Sonoran Desert. 

Leadership Lessons

 

Dr. Kevin has a couple of messages about life.  

“We’ve learned a ton about leadership and the mindset surrounding it. One key takeaway from this weekend, as Jay discussed, was truly about providing leadership for your team, ensuring no stone is left unturned.  

It’s about ensuring that processes in your practice are actively happening and leading your team, not just expecting things to happen.  

You must actively guide them, which involves changing your mindset about what leadership means. This was particularly resonant for me because I’ve been on a journey for the last year and a half to improve my leadership skills. 

I gained a lot from this weekend in terms of taking that leadership knowledge and applying it to ensure we have the right processes and people in place, and truly leading them.  

One thing Jay said that struck me was the shift from always having to nag my team for their reports to having them self-audit and report back, empowering them to track their own progress. This empowers them to grow and take steps in their leadership journey, which I found incredibly valuable.” 

What I took away from this weekend was a reinforcement of how amazing life is when you share it with people you love, work with, and connect with, especially in remarkable groups like the mastermind Kevin has created, both on the East Coast—”What up, East Coast people?”—and the West Coast.  

It just makes life better. So, build your connections, because, at the end of the day, that’s what’s important. 

Keep growing, enhance your leadership, and improve your team. 

Have a great week, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.

TMD: Behind the Scenes of Our Latest Technology Launch

TMD: Behind the Scenes of Our Latest Technology Launch

Two Minute Drill:
Behind the Scenes of Our Latest Technology Launch

 

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is launch. Last week, you didn’t see a TMD from me because we launched our second technology platform last Tuesday. As I was in the podcast studio at the launch event, watching the launch video we created, it was a surreal moment. I can’t believe we did this. 

The Road to Launch

 

Then, I started to reflect on what got us to this place. How did we get here? And so, I just want to share some of those ideas with you, in case you’re thinking about doing something that you’ve never done before but that you want to do. 

The first thing is to do your research. You must know there’s a need in whatever area you’re going to be driving a service or a product. 

Do market research, talk to as many people as you can, see what kind of problems exist, and how your solution is going to help these people solve their problems. 

Second, build alliances, build your network, and make sure that you’ve got people who understand the challenges, understand your solution, and can support you in your journey to create value, however you’re going to be creating it. 

Lastly, be scrappy as hell, like literally don’t give up. What’s super interesting is that there have been other folks, you may want to call competitors, in our space. 

Other people have built similar technology products, and some of those people are just no longer here. They’re gone, and we’ve just been scrappy. We never give up. 

We’re always working hard to get to that next level and take that next step, and we got to this milestone. We launched our second product. 

Again, it’s just the beginning, and I am so excited. 

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. 

You guys launch. Those are the three rules around launching. Hope you enjoyed it. Have a great week, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.

TMD: B**bs and Beyond – Unpacking Unusual Feedback

TMD: B**bs and Beyond – Unpacking Unusual Feedback

Two Minute Drill:
B**bs and Beyond Unpacking Unusual Feedback 

 

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is feedback. I reconnected with a longtime friend of mine last week, went to dinner and we had a great time. We’ll just call him Dr. Jerry. Dr. Jerry and I were hanging out, catching up on stuff and he commented on my videos saying, “I watch your videos, they’re great.”  

Seeking Feedback

 

He was scrolling through his phone. “They’re really good.” And I asked, “What could make them better?” He turned to me, looked at me dead in the eye, and said, “BOOBS!” 

“Jerry, really?” I responded. 

“Yeah, BOOBS would make it better,” he said. I pressed for a real answer. “What could genuinely make it better?” 

He pondered a bit. “I don’t know. They’re good – short, to the point. You tell good stories and have meaningful messages.” 

“Alright, but what else can improve them?” I asked. 

“I’ll have to think about that,” he replied, “But boobs would be good.” And those of you who know Jerry understand this is typical of him. 

So, here’s my take-home point.  

First, when you ask for feedback, you never know what you’re going to get. Sometimes the feedback might surprise you or not be as positive as you’d hope, even when you’re seeking critical input. Just be open.  

When people only give you positive feedback and you want to know how to improve, dig a little deeper. Ask another question or two to see if they can come up with something that can enhance what you’re doing. 

Lastly, if you are being asked to provide feedback, think about the question carefully. The person asking is looking to improve. Use your brain and work a little harder cognitively to offer constructive feedback that can help them grow.  

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.  

It’s all about feedback, and apparently, “boobs”. Have a great week, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.

TMD: Changing Our Reality, One Thought at a Time

TMD: Changing Our Reality, One Thought at a Time

Two Minute Drill:
Changing Our Reality, One Thought at a Time

 

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is our brains. I’m listening to this book by Joe Dispenza, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.” It’s heavy, and I’m probably going to have to listen to it a couple of times to try and absorb all the information. 

Beyond Our Thoughts

 

Some key things stand out for me, and I just thought I would share. 

First, I recommend you get this book. CLICK HERE.

I believe there are always ways that we can improve our lives. We all deal with challenges every now and then, and sometimes more often than we would like. I think this book helps to at least define for me why some of these things are occurring. 

I’ve often said to people, for some reason, I feel like there’s something going on in my brain that prevents me from breaking through to that next level of where I want to be, of what I want to accomplish, of my level of happiness in my life. I’m starting to understand through this book why this is occurring. 

Our reality essentially is driven by our thoughts and our feelings. Many times, consciously or subconsciously, we are just reinforcing those thoughts. We’re not trying to create a reality if that reality is not what we want it to be. But it’s happening anyway because our thoughts are driving that reality. 

As I go through this book, I’ll probably share a couple of gems with you. 

The most important thing that I want you to understand today is that if you are not in a place in your life that you want to be, if there are things just going wrong, your life is great but things are going wrong, or not as well as you would like, and you’d like to make improvements in those areas, I would highly encourage you to think about how you need to be different as a human. And how you need to be different as a human always starts with how we think and how we feel. 

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill, breaking the habit of being ourselves. 

I’ll continue to share as I go along this journey. I hope you guys will get the book, check it out, and go on this journey with me. 

Have a great week, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.

TMD: Out with the Old, In with the New

TMD: Out with the Old, In with the New

Two Minute Drill:
Out with the Old, In with the New

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is “Out with the Old.” Next to me, I have this lovely little Christmas tree. This thing has been sitting here for two years. Yes, two years. It is a nice little tree and it served me well, decorating the house. 

New Year, New Mindset

 

I didn’t turn the lights on, but there are lights on it. I’m afraid if I turn the lights on right now, the whole thing will go up in flames because this tree is so dry. 

Why did I hold onto this thing for so long? 

I did some research on why we hold on to things that clutter our lives, physically, maybe even emotionally. 

One reason might be the fear of losing something valuable. That’s not it for me. 

Two, maybe it’s memories of the past or something sentimental that we don’t want to forget, and maybe that’s why. 

Or three, the concern that we might not have the resources to replace it if we get rid of it now. That’s not it for me either. 

So, I’m going to get rid of this tree today. I’m going to chop it up and use it for kindling for my outdoor fire pit, so the tree can still serve some purpose in my life. 

What else do I need to let go of, out with the old, and maybe in with something better? 

One of the things that I’m going to let go of this year, in 2024, to the best of my ability, is negative self-talk. 

I’ve had a lot of that throughout my life, and it’s no longer serving me well. In fact, it probably never served me well, but it’s not serving 2024. 

So yeah, out with the old, out with the old negative self-talk. And I want to know from you guys, what are you getting rid of? 

What is no longer serving you? What is your “out with the old” that is going to make your life better in 2024? Please, please share, okay? 

Alright, that’s this week’s Two Minute Drill, out with the old. 

Have a great week, you guys.
