Our practice and so many like it are on absolutely fire with New Patients right now (29 last week!) — let me break down WHY and HOW that is happening so YOU can get in on the impact and action too!
We can never stop with the message of Neuro-development and milestones!
There is no better way to enter the conversation with mom about their child’s struggles. Milestones are truly a bridge to take a parent from symptoms to bodily systems all the way to the Nervous System .
Symptoms tell us system struggles so never shy away from getting mom to tell her kiddo's story! As hope dealers, it gives us clues!
Above is a whiteboard video recorded a while ago tying together the CDC milestones changes with crawling and how that motor milestone ties into the digestive and the immune systems .
We used it to invite parents to our Raising Healthy Kids, Naturally workshop!
And...this is also EXACTLY what we dove into clinically on today's PX Clinical Excellence Call...helping us find the CAUSE and PHASE in development where the subluxation took place! So we can...
Find it, Care plan for it, Adjust it, Repeat!
Want to join us on these weekly Zoom calls plus SO....
Each and every week inside of The Pediatric Experience we host Zoom calls with our core leadership team as well as the occasional special guest.
Dr. Tony recently brought in our good friend and absolute marketing genius Dr. Angus Pyke from Australia to co-teach with him, and dial absolutely granular and detailed on the one thing Angus knows best — making badass videos !
“There’s someone in your community who is WAITING for YOU to STEP UP, LEARN this, and get over your fears! FIND them, HELP them.” - Dr. Angus Pyke
He teaches us his absolute TOP value content that helped Dr. Tony & Dr. Matt’s start to really catch fire and move the needle last year — the S.H.A.R.E. Formula — which is absolutely perfect for Pediatrics , Perinatal , and Family practices!
The timing is absolutely perfect for this one.
Never before have moms and dads been taking in hours upon hours of video content on online — Facebook, Instagram, TikTok,...
Read first, then check out the video
Who likes doing Facebook live videos? ….
I’d be willing to bet that almost all of us on Peds today would prioritize a tough progress report w/ a dad whose a pediatrician over a Video recording of ourselves…ok that may be too far.
But even if you feel more comfortable in an insta Reel dancing than a live video, here’s the call to action for today…
Do long-form “whiteboard” videos (Facebook lives, Instagram TV, and blogs) because you never know who is watching!
Here’s my “Case Study ” on it!
The goal: 5-6 months back we committed, as an office, to create more educating and entertaining content (edu-taiment) to share our pediatric brand, culture, and excitement! AND along with the FUN we committed to ONE whiteboard, longer form (5-10 mins) live video each week to drop in the middle of it.
The results: Overall WAY more viewership of our Instagram content (due to the reels, fun,...
3 Ways To Know If You Really Are a Neurologically-Focused Chiropractor
This 'Move the Needle' post is entirely inspired by something we are consciously and very actively leading not just in the profession, but flat out online and in health care as a whole -- the explosion of awareness and action towards the vital importance of the Brain and Autonomic Nervous System, Vagus Nerve , Neuroplasticity, Neurodevelopment (Perfect Storm work), etc!
It's absolutely imperative that our profession lead this movement both within health care, and more importantly - within the "market place" (aka, take it straight to moms like we are with...
Building and growing a pediatric-focused practice is far more difficult initially than building a pain-based practice. Key word there — initially.
95% of chiro school curriculums and 95% of coaching and management systems know the pain-based, insurance-dependent model only.
Combine that with the unfortunate reality that for now, 95% of the population thinks of chiropractors primarily for back and neck pain as well, and we’ve got quite the conundrum if we want to really serve kids and build an actual family practice one day!
That’s why so many get stuck in the pain-based practice model — it’s easy.
This 20-minute "Chiro TED Talk" style video could be one of the most important ones you watch in your entire career! And for students and start ups, it could be the most pivotal EARLY awareness and "Oh snap that's so true!" understanding you ever get... and put you on the right course for you future practice right out of the gates!
Practice Model #1 - Back, Neck, Spinal , Pain, & Insurance-Dependent Practice.
Every bit of our standard training prepares us to put on the white coat with our name "Dr. Back Pain" stitched on it, and along with "spinal manipulations" you are supposed to rock rehab, massage, PT, traction, and a whole host of other "spine stretching" therapies to help you alleviate their pain in 8-12 visits or less, rack up the insurance bill, and send them on their way!
This Spinal Doctor Model brings with it:
Starting out, major props and gratitude for my dear friend and mentor Dr. David Fletcher for really sharing the overview of this concept with me, and especially pushing hard for myself and this profession on the 2nd critical element to this ‘Chiropractic 3.0 Model’ — the NEURO-first and NEURO-focused practice model.
We were co-presenting on the Life Vision stage in Montreal many years ago when he started discussing this, and I immediately turned from teacher to student and absorbed every single bit of this message.
Then I did what God has always called me to do — I dug in deeper and expanded upon it to incorporate the thing I know better than anything else on the , Pediatric Chiropractic.
I wasn’t there obviously, but I gotta imagine the earliest days of chiropractic will forever be our most badass days. Not only did they literally create and promote a brand new healing art, but they also did it with absolute...
A very awesome thing is happening both in our profession, other related professions, and online — discussion and information about the Vagus Nerve are exploding!
If we play our cards right as neurologically-focused , subluxation-centered, kid and family-focused chiropractors — this will lead to an absolute “boon” of more impact and practice growth for us!
In order to make sure you do not miss out on this absolute tidal wave of potential impact for your community and practice, I strongly suggest you take these 3 Steps to bring more Vagus Nerve action into your plans.
Right out of the gates I want to send you hauling ass down this learning road, but with one important caveat or “warning signs” if you will.
Do NOT to get caught up studying it from a medical, pathological, or physiological viewpoint.
Instead, do all you can to learn...
