The Virus of Validation

“Can you give me some more science to prove what we do?” is heard many times from Chiropractors all over the world.

The easy answer is YES, we can give you the science to prove that Chiropractic actually DOES improve the motion of the spine, and improves the nervous system. In ChiroPassion Consulting we call this ‘Criteria Testing’. This testing is done on the initial exam and then followed up on the re-exams through the care of your practice member. Can YOU, the Doctor of Chiropractic actually do what you say, that is, can you SHOW that person gets objectively better despite subjective improvement or non-improvement?

Pre and post x-ray. Posture scans. I use the Insight Subluxation Station. Which testing do YOU use that can show YOU AND YOUR PRACTICE MEMBER that they are better?

This criteria testing can help give YOU the Doctor more confidence, clarity, and certainty in your practice. All of these are essential for your practice success. Yet there still seems to be a virus of validation that we as a profession NEED more and more PROOF so that we can justify what we do in our own minds. Our practice members are not banging on our doors yelling “You have no proof, so I am out of here!” They WANT something different than just pain relief. They WANT an opportunity to be healthier for life by unlocking their own innate health.

When was the last time you asked your dentist, “Hey Doc, are you REALLY SURE that eating all that sugary stuff is bad for my teeth?”, or “You mean I HAVE to brush my teeth 2-3 times a day, EVERYDAY? Doesn’t that seem just a little excessive?” Does that talk ever come up? NEVER! There is no need to validate that brushing and flossing your teeth regularly helps you to MAINTAIN health of your teeth. Here is another question for the technique jumpers in our profession, when was the last time there was a major technique advancement in BRUSHING YOUR TEETH? THERE HASN’T BEEN!!!! Yes, we now use an electric tooth brush, but you still have to put the brush to your teeth 2-3 times a day. THAT part hasn’t changed. Flossing on a regular basis is great for your teeth AND helps decrease cardiac disease. Flossing!! So start calling your adjustments “SPINAL FLOSSING”. COMMUNICATE how regular adjustments to the spine are just like flossing your teeth.

Have you read ANY of the information that these incredible people have written on either Chiropractic, the nervous system, nerve flow, or adjusting that could help you to have more CLARITY, CERTAINTY, or CONFIDENCE in what you do?  
I highly recommend that you do.

Yes, YOU SHOULD read every day on adjusting, nerve flow, the nervous system, and Chiropractic to give you even more ammo in your CHIROPRACTIC  BAZOOKA so that you have more CLARITY, CERTAINTY, and CONFIDENCE which then gives you the opportunity to COMMUNICATE that to your practice members. 
Once you know you need to brush your teeth daily you just do it. There is no need to constantly have a need to prove it.
Once you know you need to be adjusted regularly you just do it. There is no need to constantly have a need to prove it.

Now tell your practice members and your community. They are dying for you to do so.
