I’m Dr. Jeff Williams and I’m your host for the Chiropractic Forward podcast.

You have found yourself smack dab in the middle of Episode #162

Now if you missed last week’s episode , we talked about lumbar spinal fusion surgery. This was new, current, and very much in favor of conservative, non-pharmacological, nonsurgical care.. Keep up with the class. 

On the personal end of things…..

I have the second shot of the two vaccines coming up in two days. I had absolutely zero reaction to the first one. I keep hearing that the second is worse than the first. However, several of my friends that had a miserable first shot experience had a much more pleasant second shot experience. 

So, here’s to an easy second shot. If you’re not getting yours because you want to see if everyone else grows a forehead horn first, that’s reasonable. I don’t blame you. I’m a lone wolf in a sense. My business does not run without my presence. Therefore, I need to be here. I need to be healthy. So, the vaccine makes sense to me. 

I covered a book called Peak Performance for you in the last episode or two on relaxation and visualization. Further back, I talked about a book called Quit Like A Millionaire I would absolutely recommend. Wow, what a great book. I’ve told you about Back In Control by David Hanscum MD about chronic pain and the biopsychosocial side of it. That’s a book I recommend all of my chronic patients. Check it out. 

This episode, I’ll tell you about one I’m going down the path on by Tom Wheelwright called ‘Tax-Free Wealth: How to Build Massive Wealth by Permanently Lowering Your Taxes

It’s in the Rich Dad Poor Dad netword o fproducts and I can’t say enough about it. If you’re like me, you’re sending upwards of $100k to the IRS every year regardless of how much you try to not do just that. What if we could spend that money on building our business or businesses rather than sending it to Washington where we have a bunch of corrupt politicians that have no idea what compromise even means anymore?

Politicians that go into office middle to upper class but come out multi-millionaires. Yeah, I’m more interested in figuring out how to keep it at home and working for me instead of letting those knuckelheads decide what to do with my money. That’s a big hell no. 

That’s what this book is about. Tom will also tell you about his ‘Wealthability’ program that costs a hell of a lot of money. My wife and I are doing it. We just started. You know I’m always honest with you all and I’ll tell you how it goes. For the most part though, you get all the info you need inside his book. I’m just lazy and need someone to do it for me so that’s why I went with the program. 

Actually, I’m not lazy. I think listeners here know that I’m not lazy. I just have too many irons in the fire to figure it all out myself. That’s not where my talent lies. So, people like me have to pay people like them to give me their talent and expertise and it typically comes at a price. And it does. 

I’ll keep you updated. 

Alright, let’s get to the meat and taters here. We have Part Two coming up with THE Dr. Bobby Maybee of the Forward Thinking Chiropractic Alliance. First thing’s first, if for some reason you missed Part One last week, stop..collaborate and listen….Sorry, anyone from the 80s and 90s can’t say the word STOP without adding those words to the end…..Anyway. Stop and go listen to Part One with Dr. Maybee and then come back for Part Two

Just as a refresher from last week, I want to run through some key aspects of Dr. Maybee once more. 

Dr. Maybee initially began the Forward-Thinking Chiropractic Alliance (FTCA) in 2014 as an attempt to change the landscape and conversation of the chiropractic profession of social media.   

Since then the FTCA has gone on to create evidence-based content in a grass roots nature.  This content is typically for the internet, and in an educational format through continuing education courses, and is staunchly evidence based.  

Dr. Maybee hosts “Forward, The Podcast of the Forward-Thinking Chiropractic Alliance.”  As well, he was just elected Chair of the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners Peer Review Committee, and is a member and supporter of the American Chiropractic Association.  

Dr. Maybee is a 2004 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College.  In his free time, he co manages a household of 5 children, 2 dogs Jett and Abbie, and a cat named Goober.

And the best reason we can ever have to thank someone for something, Dr. Maybee is a veteran of the US Air Force which no doubt lends itself to him being such a good and effective leader. 

Alright, let’s hop into Part Two and pick it up where we left off last week. 

  • What is your vision for the FTCA and what does the group to to move closer and closer to accomplishing them?
  • I was at the Forward 19 event in St Louis and really enjoyed it. Tell us about what goes into creating something like that? How do you pull it off?
  • Recently, I have been on a rant. I see vitalists say kooky stuff and I’m physically and mentally unable to ignore it. I have a recent episode on a guy that wants to teach other chiropractors how to treat 9 new patients and 99 established patients within three hours. Then I had an episode on the shake up of the WFC Research committee. As I mentioned in the episode, you were there in Berlin when it all started going sideways. Can you walk us through it all as far as you know it to be?
  • I think I’ve seen you vacillate on the topic of unity or not. Where do you stand on the whole deal? Is it possible the two sides can continue to live together? Or do you see groups like the Primary Spine Practitioner start to gain steam?
  • Tell us about the CSA that you and Dr. Kevin Christie have put together.


Alright, that’s it. Y’all be safe. Keep changing our profession from your little corner of the world. Keep taking care of yourselves and everyone around you. Tough times are upon us but, the sun will shine again. Trust it, believe it, count on it.

Let’s get to the message. Same as it is every week.

The Message

I want you to know with absolute certainty that when Chiropractic is at its best, you can’t beat the risk vs reward ratio because spinal pain is primarily a movement-related pain and typically responds better to movement-related treatment rather than chemical treatments like pills and shots.

When compared to the traditional medical model, research and clinical experience show us patients can get good to excellent results for headaches, neck pain, back pain, and joint pain to name just a few.

It’s safe and cost-effective can decrease surgeries & disability and we do it through conservative, non-surgical means with minimal hassle to the patient.

And, if the patient treats preventativly after initial recovery, we can usually keep it that way while raising the overall level of health!

Key Point:

At the end of the day, patients should have the guarantee of having the best treatment that offers the least harm. When it comes to non-complicated musculoskeletal complaints….

That’s Chiropractic!
