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.
Don’t put off for tomorrow, what you can do today, because tomorrow you will want to do something that you could have done, if you didn’t put off yesterday’s task.
As a student of Chiropractic, one of the most important things you can do is attend as many seminars as possible. The seminars may pertain to, ‘Chiropractic Philosophy’ “how to run a business” or even about another Chiropractor speaking about his/her own practice and the journey he went through. To listen to someone who has been through school and out in the real world is priceless information that will help gear your thought processes to success (hopefully).
Most of these type of seminars are FREE, however, you will come across many that charge $. You will have decide how valuable that particular seminar is by asking around, ask people who may have went to that seminar in the past (usually upper class men). Usually technique and adjustment seminars charge a pretty penny.
Speak to your school clubs that deal with technique, ask them to put on a seminar for technique and charge 5$ for fundraiser for their club. That is a good way to learn a lot, for a low price, as opposed to having a major technique guy/business fly to your area and charge $200 + for the same thing. School clubs are more often then not run by students for the students, so don’t be afraid to present them with ideas like this, they will appreciate it. If not, then they are part of the club for the WRONG reasons.
Remember, what you learn in school, clubs, seminars will all add your treatment tool box. The worse thing in the world (can only imagine) is to have a patient come to you and you have no idea what to do.
Learn it now, don’t put it off, push yourself. You’re welcome.
