w/ Tim Bertelsman – Chiropractic Standards, Chiropractic Specialists, Importance of State Associations

CF 073: w/ Tim Bertelsman – Chiropractic Standards, Chiropractic Specialists, Importance of State Associations

Today we’re going to be talking with Dr. Tim Bertlesman about all kinds of things. Kind of like a discussion amongst friends where anything is really on the table but we’ll hone in a little on chiropractic standardization, chiropractic specialities, and our experiences working on the state levels for our respective state associations. 

It’s going to be another great one that you’ll want to share with your colleagues but first, here’s that syrupy bumper music!

Introduction

We’re here to advocate for chiropractic while we also make your life easier using research and some good solid common sense and smart talk. 

Store

Part of making your life easier is having the right patient education tools in your office. Tools that educate based on solid, researched information. We offer you that. It’s done for you. We are taking pre-orders right now for our brand new, evidence-based office brochures available at chiropracticforward.com. Just click the STORE link at the top right of the home page and you’ll be off and running. Just shoot me an email at dr.williams@chiropracticforward.com if something is out of sorts or isn’t working correctly. 

If you’re like me, you get tired of answering the same old questions. Well, these brochures make great ways of educating while saving yourself time and breath. They’re also great for putting in take-home folders. 

Go check them out at chiropracticforward.com under the store link. While you’re there, sign up for the newsletter won’t you? We won’t spam you. Just one email per week to remind you when the new episode comes out. That’s it. 

F4CP

We will be launching an athletes and opioids eBook toward the end of this month. It’s called A case for chiropractic disrupting the cycle of pain, prescriptions, and addiciton. I’m linking it in the show notes so go get and check it out.

DACO

Let’s talk a bit about the DACO program. Well, our guest today is intimately involved with the DACO here in America and, in fact, is the one that unknowingly got me into this whole thing. 

I finished it. It’s all done. I’m just going ot start studying for the exams now. The first one will be on July 20th. If I come back from that one with my dobber in the dirt, then it didn’t go so well but we don’t plan on that happening. 

Since our guest is a big part of it all, we’re going to leave the DACO talk there and meet him. 

Our guest graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1991. He then went on to get his CCSP there at Logan as well finishing those up in 1994. 

In addition to the CCSP, he is a DACO, a Diplomate of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists and is an instructor for their live hours. So he gets to travel around getting unsusepcting and impressionable docs involved in the DACO. 

He is not only a member of the ACA and the Illinois Chiropractic Society, but is also a former President of the Illinois Chiropractic Society. 

He is also, and maybe most-importantly, the co-founder of ChiroUp which has to be seen to be believed quite honestly. You can do that by going to ChiroUp.com. I’m a member and you probably will want to be as well. 

Let’s get it started here. Welcome to the show Dr. Tim Bertlesman. Thank you for joining me today. 

  1. 300 hours later – I want to thank you for getting me into this mess called the DACO. I’m blaming it all on you and Bill Lawson. 
  2. Tell me about your journey into chiropractic
  3. From your CV, I see that you did the CCSP right out of school. What all have you done through that specific certification?
  4. Can you tell us the most striking difference between the two other than one is more geared toward sports?
  5. Tell me about your practice, what does it look like, who do you see mostly?
  6. Tell me about your journey into the DACO and what benefits you have personally realized from it.
  7. You and your business partner, Dr. Brandon Steele, do a great job at staying on top of the most current research. How do you do that? What are your sources?
  8. I want to hear a little about this friendly rivalry between you and Dr. Steele. 
  9. Did you realize that when I put your name into a Google search to learn a little more about you that Bertlesman Chiropractic pulled up with Dr. Steele’s picture on it? I think his evil plan is beginning to come to fruition. 
  10. When I had Dr. Steele on the show, we talked a bit about Standardization…as in making expectations more uniform for patients visiting chiropractic offices….. and we talked about Specialization such as through the DACO or the CCSP or CSCS. Can you share your thoughts on those two topics for us? 
  11. Tell me about your involvement with your state association and what it has meant to you both personally and professionally
  12. What have you been able to accomplish or have you tried to accomplish legislatively? What struggles are the Illinois and Missouri chiropractors in the middle of these days?
  13. Tell me about chocolate cookies and sushi
  14. I noticed a couple of things from your ‘About Me’ page on your website that I’d love to hear more about. 
    1. The Clinical Internship – Community Health Center
    2. Hospital externship at Deaconess Medical Center
  15. If people want to get more of Tim Bertelsman, what should they do? Where do they need to go to get their ‘fix’? I know you’ll be at ChiroTexpo in downtown Dallas again this year June 7-9. What else?

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 instead of chemical treatments like pills and shots.

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

Chiropractic care is safe and cost-effective. It can decrease instances of surgery & disability. Chiropractors normally do this through conservative, non-surgical means with minimal time requirements or hassle to the patient. 

And, if the patient develops a “preventative” mindset going forward from initial recovery, chiropractors can likely keep it that way while raising the general, overall level of health of the patient!

Key Point:

Patients should have the guarantee of having the best treatment offering the least harm.

That’s Chiropractic!

Integrating Chiropractors

But first, here’s that bumper music

OK, we are back. Welcome to the podcast today, I’m Dr. Jeff Williams and I’m your host for the Chiropractic Forward podcast.

We are honored to have you listening. Now, here we go with some vital information that we think can build confidence and improve your practice which will improve your life overall.

You have passed out and woke up right here in Episode #40

Welcome Dr. Brandon Steele

We have a special guest with us this week. As I said from the top we have Dr. Brandon Steele with us today. He is a very respected speaker and has the awesome chance to travel all over doing just that. 

I first became aware of Dr. Steele when I began taking courses in the DACO program. Dr. Steele is one of the instructors and I got to sit in a classroom for two days listening to him cover everything we needed to know about the shoulder. 

I also much have some full disclosure here I think. Dr. Steele is a co-owner of ChiroUp with Dr. Tim Bertlesman and I’m a user/subscriber of ChiroUp. But, ChiroUp isn’t sponsoring this episode. I haven’t received a thing from them. Not even a free membership. Cough cough… 

Seriously though, I’m having Dr. Steele on today because we think a lot alike from what I can tell, I love what they are doing with the DACO program, and I love where I think ChiroUp can help take our industry down the road in regards to Chiropractic standardization & the future of chiropractic. So, without further adieu…….

Questions for Dr. Brandon Steele

Welcome to the show Dr. Steele. Let’s start off with the obligatory question of, “What made you decide to be a chiropractor?”

In our discussion in Dallas, you told me that you’ve moved around a bit. Where are you from and what led you to St. Louis?

I have seen the terms evidence-based and evidence-informed used for what we do and must admit my ignorance of the subtle differences here. I have assumed that, since I follow research, guidelines, and things like that, that I am indeed what is referred to as an evidence-based chiropractor. Can we assume the same about you? 

When exactly did you decide to start traveling more in the direction of evidence and research rather than the philosophical route in the profession? Was there an aha moment?

Tell me a little bit about your hilarious alter-ego, the wide-lapeled chiropractic huckster we see you play in videos from time to time on the ChiroUp Facebook page. 

Part of the idea of being more into the research and being based or informed with the evidence, I think, is Chiropractic standardization…. to standardize our profession to some extent as well as increasing the level of education of the run of the mill chiropractor. We know we don’t have a low level of education at all so….can you go into that a little bit for us? What do you mean when you speak about Chiropractic standardization & the future of chiropractic?

Tell me everything about the DACO program. What got you involved with the DACO program originally?

Our regular listeners should be well-aware of you, Dr. Tim Bertlesman, and ChiroUp at this point. I’ve been pumping your tires for a bit. How did you and Dr. Bertlesman become acquainted with each other and then decide to go into business together?

Questions About ChiroUp, Chiropractic Standardization, and the Future of Chiropractic

Now, tell us a bit about ChiroUp. It feels like to me that it is really starting to hit its stride. I think ChiroUp is huge for Chiropractic standardization & the future of chiropractic.

Obviously, you want it to be successful for your own financial reasons….we all want to see our businesses to well….. but don’t you see something more than that for the profession coming out of ChiroUp? How do you think ChiroUp can affect or change our profession for the better in the years to come, for the future of chiropractic?

What is in the future for ChiroUp as far as updates, functionality…..things like that?

Questions About Dr. Steele’s Speaking Events

What are some of your upcoming speaking events so people can come to see you do your thing?

How can listeners find you on social media or on the internet and contact you or learn more about you and what you do?

So there you have it folks, Dr. Brandon Steele. There’s no doubt you loved this podcast episode as much as I did. The future is bright for Chiropractic standardization & the future of chiropractic.

Integrating Chiropractors

I want you to know with absolute certainty that when Chiropractic is at its best, you can’t beat the risk vs reward ratio. That’s because spinal pain is a mechanical pain and responds better to mechanical treatment instead of chemical treatments.

Chiropractic Description

The literature is clear: research and experience show that, in 80%-90% of headaches, neck, and back pain, patients get good to excellent results when compared to usual medical care and it’s safe, less expensive, and decreases chances of surgery and disability.

It’s done conservatively and non-surgically with little time requirement or hassle for the patient. If done preventatively going forward, we can likely keep it that way while raising overall health! At the end of the day, patients have the right to the best treatment that does the least harm and THAT’S Chiropractic, folks.

Send us an email at dr dot williams at chiropracticforward.com and let us know what you think of our show or tell us your suggestions for future episodes. Feedback and constructive criticism is a blessing and so are subscribes and excellent reviews on iTunes and other podcast services. Y’all know how this works by now so help if you don’t mind taking a few seconds to do so.

Being the the #1 Chiropractic podcast in the world would be pretty darn cool.
