OK, we are back and you have found the Chiropractic Forward Podcast where we are making evidence-based chiropractic fun, profitable, and accessible while we make you and your patients better all the way around.  We’re the fun kind of research. Not the stuffy, high-brow, look down your nose at people kind of research. We’re research talk over a couple of beers. I’m Dr. Jeff Williams and I’m your host for the Chiropractic Forward podcast.  I’m so glad you’re spending your time with us learning together.  Chiropractors – I’m hiring at my personal clinic. I need talent, ambition, drive, smart, and easy to get along with associates. If this is you and Amarillo, TX is your speed, send me an email at creekstonecare@gmail.com If you haven’t yet I have a few things you should do. 

  • Go to Amazon and check our my book called The Remarkable Truth About Chiropractic: A Unique Journey Into The Research. It’s excellent educational resource for you AND your patients. It saves you time putting talks together or just staying current on research. It’s categorized into sections so the information is easy to find and written in a way that is easy to understand for everyone. It’s on Amazon. That’s the Remarkable Truth About Chiropractic by Jeff Williams. 
  • Then go Like our Chiropractic Forward Facebook page, 
  • Join our private Chiropractic Forward Facebook group, and then 
  • Review our podcast on whatever platform you’re listening to 
  • Last thing real quick, we also have an evidence-based brochure and poster store at chiropracticforward.com

You have found yourself smack dab in the middle of Episode #260 Now if you missed last week’s episode , we talked about Cervical Curvature & Lumbar MRI Findings In Asymptomatics – New Stuff. Make sure you don’t miss that info. Keep up with the class.  Next thing, go to https://www.tecnobody.com/en/products That’s Tecnobody as in T-E-C-nobody. They literally have the most impressive clinical equipment I’ve ever seen. I own the ISO Free and am looking to add more to my office this year or next. The equipment you’re going to find over there can be marketed in your community like crazy because you’ll be the only one with something that damn cool in your office.  When you decide you can’t live without those products, send me an email and I’ll give you the hookup. They will 100% differentiate your clinic from your competitors.

On the personal end of things….. We’re not going to do a lot of personal stuff on this show. I want to first just thank those of you that have been listeners of this show. I probably over share sometimes about what’s going on with me or with my clinic.  Because of that, those of you that are long-time listeners know a lot about me. Thanks for putting up with me and coming along on this ride with me. You’ve been with me through key staff changes and huge practice changes.  You’ve been with me through adding a nurse practitioner and integrating my entire practice medically. You’ve been with me through the ‘I’m so busy I can’t keep up’ stages to the ‘I can’t figure out why I’m so slow’ stages. That’s one I’m climbing out of right now as we speak.  The reason I share so much about what I’m doing or going through is

  1. It’s cathartic. It makes me feel better to talk about it. It’s like a weekly journal and if you’re familiar with journaling, it’s helpful mentally and effective. 
  2. I know that if I’m going through it and I figure it out, then somebody else is going through it and my experience will help guide them. If you are not going through it currently, there’s a damn good chance you eventually will go through it and my experience will set you up to be able to handle it better. 

So, thank you. I continue to be blessed by all of you. I’m glad you find value in what I share. I hope somewhere along the way, I have helped you to be better than you were before. That’s the daily goal for me as well as for you. We’re in it together. 

Now, onto the All Time Top Ten most listened to episodes of the Chiropractic Forward podcast. 

There were some surprises for me on this one. As I cover these, I’ll also leave the links to them in the show notes so you can easily go listen should you have interest. 

10. Our tenth place episode is episode #114 which was titled

Ten Keys to Practice Success

This one has been piling up the listens since February 11, 2020. Yep, right before the RONA came to town to wreak havoc. https://www.chiropracticforward.com/ten-keys-to-chiropractic-success/ I covered a wide range of the ten keys to my success and broke them down for you. Evidently, you and your buddies found value in it. And that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside my belly. 

9. Our ninth place goes to episode #189 where we were joined by the one and only Dr. Brett Winchester. One of the smartest and funniest human beings I think I’ve ever met in my life. Humble and amazing, Brett makes you proud to be a chiropractor and through Dr. Kevin Christie’s Florida Mastermind group, has become a friend of mine. One I greatly value.  On the episode, Brett talked about Chiropractic Excellence, Inspiration, & Being The Best Evidence-informed Chiropractor You Can Be. It is definitely worth your time.

8. Our 8th most popular episode goes to episode #139 and was called Chiropractors Affected By COVID, 2019 Opioid Overdoses, Insurance Compensation For Chiropractic. It went live on August 20, 2020 so, still in the pandemic but after a Spring and Summer of the COVID mess and we talked about some research on how it affected us as a profession, we went over fresh at the time opioid overdose info, and then we talked about how insurance companies reimburse us. You probably already know that part. You’re living it! Lol.  https://www.chiropracticforward.com/chiropractors-affected-by-covid-2019-opioid-overdoses-insurance-compensation-for-chiropractic/ 7.

Coming in at #7 is episode #113 where we were joined by the current Texas Chiropractic Association President himself, the head hombre, The Illustrious Potentate from Austin, TX, Dr. William Lawson where we covered a paper he played a part in that covered new and updated guidelines on treating cervical pain.  https://www.chiropracticforward.com/w-dr-william-larson-brand-new-guidelines-on-neck-pain-treatment/

6. At #6 we have episode #142. In this one, we covered treatment for nonoperative discs, we talked about supplementing Vitamin D3 for depression and what the research says, and we covered the bio psychosocial part of chronic pain. This one is my kind of episode. The bioqsychosocial aspect is something I just find to be fascinating and intriguing. I’m glad you all seemed to find it interesting as well.  https://www.chiropracticforward.com/nonoperative-disc-treatment-d3-for-depression-the-biopsychosocial-part-of-chronic-pain/

5. Number 5 this year is episode #136 and it was called ‘Chiropractic’s Effect On Strength and More, Status Of Muscle Relaxers, And The Best Recovery Posture.’ This episode is a pretty standard run of the mill episode. It doesn’t have any of my real estate golden nuggets hidden within….nothing special but everyone likes it so hell yeah. I’ll take it. This one showed how to best recover your breath after exercise, how opioids are still bad, and how active-duty military personnel receiving chiropractic care exhibited improved strength and endurance, as well as reduced LBP intensity and disability, compared with a wait-list control. https://www.chiropracticforward.com/cf-136-chiropractics-effect-on-strength-and-more-status-of-muscle-relaxers-and-the-best-recovery-posture/

4. Still in the top Five since August of 2020, it’s episode #141 called “Lancet Low Back Update & movement Disorders Mean Pain” This one has been one of the top episodes since it was first released and has stayed there. This one covers an update The Lancet released. An update on the huge low back series they came out with originally around 2016/2017 if I recall correctly. We covered the original series here on the podcast toward the very beginning of Chiropractic Forward existence.  https://www.chiropracticforward.com/lancet-low-back-update-movement-disorders-mean-pain/

3. Our 3rd most listened to episode is #143 called ‘New Paper: Spinal Manipulation Has No Effect On Chronic Pain – Our Experts Rebuttal’. Basically, some no so flattering research came out trying to prove that spinal manipulative therapy was basically useless. For this episode, I contacted several of our profession’s experts and we gave our own rebuttal to this paper right here on the podcast. The exact conclusion of the paper we talked about said, ““In this randomized clinical trial, neither spinal manipulation nor spinal mobilization appeared to be effective treatments for mild to moderate chronic LBP.” Well, who the hell can say that? Seriously. After all of the papers in support of SMT for chronic low back, someone’s going to pop out with that? Nope.  So we talked about it and met it head on.  https://www.chiropracticforward.com/new-paper-spinal-manipulation-has-no-effect-on-chronic-pain-our-experts-rebuttal/

2. Hitting number two all time is episode #140 with my buddy, Dr. Chris Howson of the Great State of North Dakota. We talked about Chiropractors In Hospitals & Drop Release. He should know because he is in a hospital-run outpatient clinic and is well-integrated in the medical community. He also invented the Drop Release so of course we talked about that and how he uses it. I use the hell out of mine now too! https://www.chiropracticforward.com/cf-140-w-dr-chris-howson-chiropractors-in-hospitals-drop-release/

  1. Coming in this year at the Number One spot for the most listened to podcast episode in the history of this show is episode #137. In this episode I was joined by Dr. Aric Frisina-Deyo and we talked about Chiropractors In An FQHC Setting & Setting The Bar High Early On. This episode, of course, was excellent and Aric is one of the more impressive individuals you’ll ever meet in our profession. Congratulations to Dr. Frisina-Deyo on being #1. 

Alright. That was fun. It’s always cool to go back and re-visit some of these episodes once a year and see what is resonating with our listeners. It’s interesting. Out of the top ten, only four of them included a guest. Also, you’d think the one with did where we were joined by Dr. Stu McGill would be in the top ten somewhere…..but not at all. Dr. McGill came in around #14 all time. We have been fortunate enough to be joined by not only Stu but Dr. William Morgan, Dr. Katie Pohlman, Dr. Christine Goertz, Dr. Tyce Hergert, Dr. Kris Anderson, Dr. Jay Greenstein, Dr. Kevin Christie and the list goes on and on and on.  If you are still new to the podcast, I hope you’ll spend some time going back through some of the episodes that peak your interest.

We’ve had a good run so far and, for now, I plan to continue it as long as it’s fun and as long as you listen.  Alright, that’s it. Keep on keepin’ on. Keep changing our profession from your corner of the world. The world needs evidence-based, patient-centered practitioners driving the bus. The profession needs us in the ACA and involved in leadership of state associations. So quit griping about the profession if you’re doing nothing to make it better. Get active, get involved, and make it happen.

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 preventatively 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!
