Docs, Documents and Integrated Care: The Cooperative Formula
None of us works in a vacuum. At some point, we find ourselves having to interact with other medical professionals, whether it is in a hospital setting, with the referring medical doctor or another health care provider such as a physical therapist or an acupuncturist.
Master the Art of Offering Orthotics to Your Patients
The use of orthotics has been successfully incorporated into every type of practice model by chiropractors from every school, completely independent of their philosophy, technique or specialty.

Headaches & Vitamin D
A group of case reports has shown a relationship between tension-type headaches, musculoskeletal pain and vitamin D. In these reports, patients with histories of episodic headaches, body pain and muscle weakness were found to also be deficient in vitamin D. Upon beginning a daily regimen of vitamin D and calcium supplementation, the headaches subsided in a few weeks, the body pain subsided in a few more weeks and the muscle strength increased over the course of the next few months.

Sounds simple, right? Five elements to success, that's all it takes. Well, not quite; as any practicing DC knows, success can be influenced by a wide range of variables, some beyond your control. However, in the majority of cases, what can make or break you over time boils down to whether or not you do some fairly straightforward things in your practice and professional life.
