We are dedicated to helping chiropractors to create highly effective and successful chiropractic practices.

We promote a simple model of chiropractic practice that is highly profitable, yet has a very low overhead.

Our approach is vitalistic, ethical, congruent, and legal.

Our goal is to help chiropractors to become excellent at the philosophy, art, and science of chiropractic.

That means your confidence and competence as an adjustor is second to none.

That means that your ability to teach and communicate chiropractic principles, especially the relationship between the spine and the brain, is second to none.

There are some really good teachers out there, like Drs. Dan Sullivan, John Minardi, Josh Silver,  and, of course, Dan Murphy, who teach about the relationship between the spine as a sensory organ, and the health and function of the brain.  We need to be able to take this information and make it understandable.  We need to own it.

Low overhead, minimal to no staff, minimal equipment – a table and your hands, an ability to communicate, and a fee structure that allows a ton of people to come in for weekly care until they die.  Simple.

If what you believe to be true were not, would you want to know about it?

Feel free to call with questions about practicing this simple, stress-free style of chiropractic.

It’s legal in every state (although, you are responsible for following your specific state law).  Sometimes people will tell you it is illegal to have a membership practice or dual fee structure in their state.  It may very well be illegal to have a dual fee structure.  We do not have a dual fee structure, unless you consider pay per visit, or pay per month (typically for up to 8 visits per month) to be a dual fee structure.  We see this as a single fee for a single service.  There is a fee for a one-time visit.  And there is a separate fee for the privilege of coming in weekly, without an appointment, at certain times during the week.  Most practice members who take advantage of the monthly option are seen 30-60 times per year for one set price.

As for the rumor that  “membership is illegal,” that stems from a ruling in New York whereby doctors were implementing a program whereby the patient paid a monthly fee and then the chiropractor billed the insurance company for additional services.  This was deemed practicing insurance without proper licensing.  This is not even remotely what we do.  You can not mix our membership style with medical insurance of any kind (except, perhaps, a HSA/FSA)  We provide only non-medically necessary care as our intent is always to promote optimal health, improve quality of life, and prevent further damage, dis-ease, or disease.  This is considered  non-medically necessary, and it is all we do.  We want to see our people on a weekly basis.  We are not charging people in advance based on the proposition that they might need care in the future.   They are being checked for subluxation on a weekly basis whether they have a medical condition or not.  A chiropractic subluxation is not a medical condition.

About

Chiropractic is Simple: Better Brain.  Better Life

Some say there has never been a better time to be a chiropractor.

I know that I love chiropractic, being a chiropractor, practicing chiropractic, and telling the chiropractic story.  I love to see people’s lives change as a result of making chiropractic a part of their weekly routines.

What I don’t like is that so few people are under chiropractic care, and that so few chiropractors truly understand our philosophy, principles, and procedures necessary to make much of a difference.

I believe only a small percentage of chiropractors are even practicing chiropractic, but rather some sort of manipulative therapy, manual therapy, vague, wellness, something-er-other.

Students graduate with an identity crisis.  They may have been taught everything BUT chiropractic.  They lack confidence, skill, and an awareness that they have just about all they need to succeed in practice, in their head, heart, and hands.

Okay, they may need a good table (mine is a portable Lloyd C105 flat bench with a matching portable toggle headpiece, $750 for the two) , but they don’t need a new digital x-ray unit, fancy diagnostic equipment, a big office in a prime location, with 3 massage therapists, and an expensive EMR package.

They don’t need to stock a bunch of supplements, braces, and pillows.

What they do need is a table, their hands, and an understanding of what a subluxation is, how detrimental it is to brain function, how to find it with complete certainty, correct it with complete certainty, and the ability to communicate how a patient’s brain will now function better without this subluxation, and why weekly care at a fixed rate is such a great value.

There are a growing number of us who are completely stepping out of the medical model that prevails in chiropractic, but isn’t  chiropracTIC.  Some were smart enough to have never gotten involved in the first place.

We are good at telling the chiropractic story.

We are good at knowing what a subluxation is, where it is, and what it does to the brain.

We are good at locating and correcting the subluxation.

We are good at communicating to the community how this improves brain function, in a way that only makes logical sense for people to get checked and adjusted on a weekly basis, more often in certain cases.

We make care convenient, affordable, and simple.

We don’t have a dual fee system.

We aren’t practicing insurance without a license.

We don’t do any insurance.

We are legal in every state.

We have a relationship with our patients and no other third party dictates our care.  We are subject to, and compliant with the laws of our state.

We don’t worry about audits.  We don’t worry about claims being denied.   We don’t even care if a patient misses an appointment – they don’t have one.

We get paid if the patient is on vacation.  We get paid when WE are on vacation.

Hang out.  Listen to the podcast.   Ask questions.  Call me if you need to talk.

Come visit me in Colorado.  We’ll fish together.  It’s good for the soul.

The Simple Chiropractor Podcast 001: Chiropractic is Simple

In this inaugural session of the podcast, Scott discusses his own journey from a high overhead, low volume, insurance-dependent practice, to his current practice which features a very low overhead, a monthly fee that nearly anyone can afford for weekly care, and a strong commitment to communicating the basic principles and practice of chiropractic as …

Why a monthly fee is better than a per visit fee, regardless of the amount

“What’s your adjustment worth?” Typically, chiropractors will answer something like, “you can’t place a value on an adjustment, or, what’s your health or life worth?.”…..something trite or canned. The average fee per visit varies around the Country, but for argument’s sake, let’s say it’s $65. If the best way to use chiropractic, as I believe it …
