  Building the DC-MD Bridge   
Biomechanics & posture education: not just for your patients.
By Steven P. Weiniger, DC
From MDs practicing integrative holistic medicine to the family internist, many DCs are enjoying unprecedented attention from their allopathic colleagues. The opportunity is to earn respect and then build an economic practice model, which requires shifting the MD from being a receptive listener about chiropractic to being an enthusiastic referrer.

Social media is more than a passing fad, it is definitely here to stay. Social media apps and channels of distribution may evolve, but the concept of social media is now big business and a part of all our lives. It can seem intimidating if you don't quite understand how it works, but using this network to grow your practice requires a successful strategy to develop a winning social media ad campaign.

Some patients move too much or too often in a repetitive way, while some don't move enough at all. Either way, these patients often present with poorly localized pain in muscles and joints with sensory disturbances. Tendons and myofascia are susceptible to varying degrees of injury from acute episodes (patients that become worse after they attempt exercise and/or stretching for the first time in a long time) to chronic overuse (athletes, manual laborers).

Doctors of chiropractic are similar to any product or service. Doctors, their staff and their practices have a brand and a reputation, and like all products or services that brand must be protected. Brands offer instant recognition and identification. They are also promise consistent reliable standards of quality, size or even psychological attraction.

One of the biggest mistakes I see in nutrition is that we look at life in these narrow "slices" of time and think this is how things always have been. We might think that nutritionally we're a little worse than a while ago (or not), but we don't have any perspective or context to help us see exactly how different things are now.

How you sleep, how easily you wake up, and how much energy and stamina you have during the day are directly related to levels of the thyroid hormones. The thyroid is heavily involved in many more processes in the body as well. As chiropractors, it's important to understand the potential causes of thyroid problems — and how you can help restore balance naturally.
  
Understanding patients in pain: personal lessons.
By Joel Lindeman, DC
People come to us to gain freedom from pain, to feel better, to live better. As D.D. Palmer stated, "We Chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul." Therein also lies the rub. We see so many wondrous things in our offices on a daily basis that we often fail to deeply realize how our patients truly feel.

In previous articles in this series, we expounded on the importance of the gluteus maximus (GM) in athletic performance and protecting the knee from injury. We also know there is a link between iliotibial band syndrome and GM weakness. The famous spinal researcher, Stuart McGill, has coined the phrase "gluteal amnesia" to describe GM inhibition. Gluteal amnesia or inhibition may be a result of hip pain.
By Robert Silverman, DC, MS, CCN, CSCS
One of the most dangerous culprits that affects an athlete's ability to perform at an optimum level also happens to be one of the most elusive. Environmental toxins are virtually everywhere given their almost global nature; for instance, we don't think too much about the packaging food comes in, or the shampoo we wash our hair with – or even the air we breathe. Yet according to a 2010 article in Science, 70-90 percent of disease risks are likely due to environmental factors.
