CF 070: w/ Dr. Anthony Nicholson – Medical Referral, Chiropractic Specialization, Chiropractic Standardization (Part 1)
Today we have a very special guest on the show talking about
First, here’s that ‘yummy like taffy’ 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.
You have beamed yourself right into Episode #67 just like Captain Kirk all dashing and daring.
We’re here to advocate for chiropractic while we also make your life easier.
Part of doing that 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if something is out of sorts or isn’t working correctly. We are still getting some kinks worked out right now on the shipping and handling.
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.
On the DACO this week, I’m going to tell you that I started the masterclass called Pain In The Frame and I am absolutely fascinated with the information. But, we are not going to talk about my specific experiences on the DACO right now because our guest today is one of the creators of the entire online education program. In fact, when I’m taking the online classes for Pain In The Frame or the eLearning video series, our guest is the one in the videos doing all of the talking and all of the teaching!
I need to go a little more into his history here before we bring him on the show.
Dr Anthony Nicholson is the CEO of Chiropractic Development International (CDI), a global continuing education organization for chiropractors that he co-founded in 2002. CDI’s innovative online learning technology has led to formal accreditation in over 35 states in North America, along with a growing learner base in the UK, Europe and South East Asia. CDI provides 250 hours of advanced online clinical training for the Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Program offered by the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and had developed an online board examination for the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedics.
As a partner of Spine Partners Wahroonga in Sydney Australia, Dr Nicholson is also a full-time chiropractic physician in private practice, is a board certified chiropractic neurologist (DACNB) and is board certified in Chiropractic Orthopedics (FACO).
In addition, he is an adjunct senior lecturer in Neuromusculoskeletal Diagnosis and Evidence-based Practice at Macquarie University ion Sydney’s north shore.
On a person note, I can tell listeners of The Chiropractic Forward Podcast that, if they do indeed sign up for the DACO program through the University of Bridgeport like I’ve been telling them to, and they use the CDI online group to get through it, when they get to the portions that are video based, our guest, Dr. Anthony Nicholson, is the one in the videos being smart and teaching you all of the stuff you need to know. I feel like I already know him just from watching his videos.
So with that said, here we go,
Welcome to the show today, Dr. Nicholson, I’m so glad to have you with us all the way from Australia.
- I need to know something before we get going here. What’s the weather like in Sydney Australia? Do you guys ever really have what you’d consider a Winter
likewe have here in the US?
- Also, there is an internet myth here in the US about Australia and I want to know if you’re ready to debunk it right here, right now. The myth being that the water goes down the opposite direction when the toilet is flushed in Australia as opposed to what we are used to here in America. Lol. It has to be in the design of the bowl, right?
- Tell me about chiropractic in Australia. How does it differ from places like the US or the UK?
- How long have you been a chiropractor?
- How did you first start to enter into the evidence-based chiropractic realm or were you there from the beginning?
- Tell us what your practice looks like from day to day? Who do you typically see?
- Where do your referrals typically come from and how did you foster that referral source in the beginning?
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!
Patients should have the guarantee of having the best treatment offering the least harm.
