Chiropractors in perfect position to help with ‘laptop-itis’

For years, chiropractors have been in the forefront of posture-related health care and have led the campaign to raise awareness of heavy backpacks that can distort the young student’s posture. Now, they’re seeing an increase in the number of young people with neck, shoulder, and back problems caused by hunching over a laptop computer. “More […]

In these hard times

I don’t think I’ve talked to a single practitioner lately who hasn’t complained about the bad economy, the “hard times” or the financial crisis (in their practice, the country and/or the world). Patients aren’t coming in, revenues are down, they can’t afford the rent, they’re facing ruin. In the past, I would’ve joined them in […]

Is the profit motive wrong?

By Terry A. Rondberg, DC There’s an aura about wellness providers, some indescribable sense that they’re morally and ethically superior to medical doctors. Frankly, I agree! But I think sometimes we take that image of altruism too far when we shy away from having (or admitting to have) a profit motive in our practice. Jasson […]

Honing your people skills

The number one reason that wellness providers like chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapists don’t get sued as often as medical doctors is that they’re safer. That’s pretty obvious. When you aren’t dealing in dangerous drugs or invasive procedures, you aren’t putting your patients at much risk. The next most important reason for the relatively low […]

A Texas-Sized Constitutional Battle… the Right to Diagnose

Many chiropractors have woken up to the legal battle going in Texas, but if you’re not aware of what’s going on — and you care about your right to diagnose patients — you really need to start paying attention. And that’s not just my opinion. Look at this April 26 email message from attorney Keith […]

Forced vaccine movement picks up speed

Currently, the freedom to practice chiropractic as a drug free alternative to medical treatment and the freedom to choose our form of health care is under threat. For years, I have been claiming this, but only to deaf ears. It is absurd that in modern times, anyone has to worry about being forced to give […]

To Be World-Class People, We Have to Think World-Class Thoughts

by Terry A. Rondberg, DC “Wealth is the product of a man’s capacity to think.” –Ayn Rand, Author, Philosopher, 1905-1982 Today, if you went to work because you wanted to, you control money. But if you went to work because you had to, money controls you. As a wealthy nation, 99% of the U.S. population […]

Dr. Barwell has more than 30 years of experience in chiropractic practice and he has some great slides to illustrate his points, like penguins and “black” camels.

Stopping Subluxations Before They Start

by Dr. Terry A. Rondberg A patient arrives in your office and you adjust her spine and correct her subluxations. By the time she walks out the door, her spine is on the way to being subluxated again because of her unbalanced gait. The fact is, regardless of your capabilities, you can’t effectively stabilize a […]

Founded on Tone

Article with citations by Terry A. Rondberg, DC The words Founded on Tone are inscribed on the opening page of D.D. Palmer’s 1910 text [1]. “Life is the expression of tone. In that sentence is the basic principle of chiropractic,” he writes. “Tone is the normal degree of nerve tension…consequently; the cause of disease is […]
