We’re talking about sports!
On this episode, Dr. Kelley Humphries leads a conversation on the topic of “sports chiropractic." Sports chiropractic is not all sidelines at the Super Bowl. So what is it? What is the role of a team chiropractor, whether it is a pro team, scholastic, etc.? If a chiropractor is working with a sports team, they are themselves part of a team. How does that work and how does a chiropractor succeed in that environment? In the Ask NCMIC segment, Mike Whitmer talks to Kathy Everett about some common issues with electronic health records.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We checked in with them to hear how the pandemic has affected their learning and their plans, and what the profession can do to help them and other students. Leah Dash is in her 8th quarter at UWS.

Let’s talk about patients – finding them and keeping them
Today’s episode is all about patients. Finding them, building relationships with them, and eventually, enlisting them to help grow your practice. (2:35) Joey Coleman has an interesting background, to say the least. After studying international relations in both undergrad and law school, he worked for the Secret Service, the White House and the CIA. He was a criminal defense lawyer, and a professor for an executive MBA program. He ran a division of a promotional products company, then started an ad agency. Five years ago, he became a full time professional speaker. Joey attributes his success to understanding what can be done to convince or persuade or influence people to do the things we'd like them to do. Join us as Joey helps us explore the importance of the first 100 days of a customer experience – and why a customer experience and customer service are completely different things. (21:00) Ask NCMIC with Mike Whitmer and attorney John Floyd about documentation and risk management. (22:55) Dr. Sherry McAllister is a practicing chiropractor, an athlete, and the Executive Vice President of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, whose mission is to educate the general public about the value of chiropractic in their own lives. Dr. McAllister was studying medical research when she got into a car accident with a dog. Or, rather, an accident caused by a dog. As a result, she went through a period of her life when she was in so much pain she questioned her ability to continue her career. A friend introduced her to chiropractic and not only was she made well, but she changed course. Melissa asks Dr. McAllister about the connection between chiropractic and the 20(21) Olympics, how to build relationships with symbiotic care providers in your community, and Foundation resources available to help you make those connections.
