I’ve been asking undergraduate students and some older adults about why they do not go to the Chiropractor to get adjusted, or regular check ups, the results are as follows:
– They do not understand what Chiropractors do, or the benefits therein. Chiros need to lecture in schools, colleges, work places, etc. I understand some Chiropractors are active in their community, which is much appreciated, however, a large handful are not. So, spread the word, don’t just sit on facebook, posting chiropractic-like memes (most are pretty cool though… ) But, we need to get out there and use our educated voice!
– They can not afford Chiropractic Care. They go on to say $50 is too much per visit, and ‘they want to see me a few times per week.’ Why are there few Chiros out there offering student incentives?? Students can not afford $150 initial exam fees, and if they can’t afford them, they will put it off and not get them. Even worse, students can not afford $40 follow up exams. Don’t allow our students in our community to neglect Chiropractic care because of the cost! Figure it out, you’re doctors. Also, we can make the argument that if they cared so much about Chiropractic care then they would find the cash to make the extra effort….not if they don’t understand what Chiropractic is….
Doctors of Chiropractic! Are you offering student benefits? Why is it that I am rarely seeing Chiropractors offer discounts to students?
NO Student, or adult should not receive proper Chiropractic care because its too expensive. We are running to other countries to help them chiropractic-ally, on mission trips, etc, which is also important, however, we have our neighbors in our own town who can’t afford it. How can you/we fix this?
If your/our community does not understand Chiropractic, Go give a presentation! Make an appointment with the local high school, college, business place, etc. and talk. Get off Facebook and talk. Don’t leave it up to me or my fellow passionate student Chiros. Take it upon yourself to get up and do it. Our time will come… I promise.
If you do not change this, when I become a Chiropractor, I will.
Believe you me, I will.
The Chiropractor Student
I created another page (above) that includes some of the books written on Chiropractic Philosophy, Science, and Art. These books are intended for Students of Chiropractic and Chiropractors of today and yesterday.
Read them carefully, read them well, and enjoy.
The Chiropractor Student
Microbiology- including virus families, their presentations, treatments and public health relationships.
Anatomy of the anterior abdominal layers,stomach, intestines, inguinal canal. Blood supply, innervation,location relationships of all.
Learned how the body regulates fluids, like blood, urine, and interstitial fluid via the kidneys and associated structures. Exam on that next week…
Radiology last week, we were introduced to analyzing lumbar and hip x- rays. I enjoy that class. 12 students to 1 professor ratio…good odds, if you want to learn your stuff.
Technique class: This quarter we are focusing on the Lumbar (lower back) and hips. So far the techniques we are learning utilize the Hy- Lo table and Knee Chest piece. We learned Double Thumb and Single hand adjustments. We were introduced to side posture, but I have a feeling there will be much more…It is very important to learn proper technique!
Take a look at some of these clips, and notice the patient’s positive reaction… Find your local Chiropractor and go get checked.
