Social Media Follow up Magic

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. In our interconnected world, the actions one takes online (after meeting someone face-to-face), can make the difference between another tossed aside business card and a potentially valuable relationship. In October, I mentioned how I was at an event with around 130 other people in the chiropractic industry, and the secret marketing opportunities that were lost. For someone who loves networking, it was a disappointing experience. While having breakfast with a group of friends yesterday, I was engaged in my usual online activities (all those years of table manners my mom taught me are down the drain) […]

Cervical Spine Trauma Symposium at SCUHS

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Brochures, mailers, postcards, and faxes are increasingly coming into my chiropractic office with seminars and events taking place in the Southern California area during the first few months of 2008. There’s Dan Murphy’s nutritional neurology event taking place in Irvine in January, and I just noticed there’s going to be a interdisciplinary symposium held on campus at the Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCUHS) on February 23rd and 24th. Information regarding the event is available in the continued education section of the events and seminar pages. There is expected to be 12 hours of continuing […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There is a nutritional neurology and chiropractic event being held at the Irvine Marriott on January 19 and 20th in 2008. Event features Dr. Dan Murphy, a popular speaker on the chiropractic profession’s continuing education circuit. Details for the seminar are listed on the chiropractic continuing education pages (check the continuing education or nutrition fields). The program has been submitted for approval to the California State Board of Chiropractic Examiners for 12 hours of continuing education. I mentioned earlier this week to make sure you check with your state regarding continuing education credit, especially if you […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Recently I posted a photo from a World Posture event in Atlanta that was dated around 1973. This photo is from around the same time and it’s a clipping from a local New Jersey newspaper. The photo features two chiropractors accompanied by their wives. A placard in the photo reads Women’s Auxiliary to the Garden State Chiropractor’s Society. I don’t know which New Jersey newspaper this was from but the photo is credited to Emmitt Francois. The information under the newspaper photograph reads… Chiropractor’s Auxiliary Fashion Show Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Donofrio of Paramus and Dr. […]

Cell Phone Use in the Office

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There was an article in this past Saturday’s Seattle Post-intelligencer regarding the use of cell phones in businesses. According to the article, businesses and organizations are increasingly posting signs and asking people to stop using cell phones during transactions. They mentioned banks, coffee shops, and doctors offices, as places where cell phone use is being questioned. I’m assuming many chiropractic offices, dental offices, medical facilities, and other offices of health professionals have pushed for a no cell phone policy in their places of business. My LA chiropractic office did the no cell phone thing back in […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I noticed just about a week ago that there were very few chiropractic seminars posted for the 2008 season on the events pages. Checking the main page today I noticed conference dates are now available for Parker Seminars in Las Vegas, which will be at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas the weekend of February 7th. There are also dates for other Parker Seminars including Parker Montréal in May, Parker Italy in June, and Parker Dallas in September. Conference dates are also posted for New Beginnings which will be in the months of January, April, and […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I located this and a few other newspaper clippings featuring chiropractors in the state of New Jersey. This photo is from around 1973 and it features Dr. Bob Sottile, along with other NJ chiropractors from the Garden State society. The newspaper clipping reads… FITNESS WAS THE THEME — The Garden State Chiropractic Society sponsored Miss Kathy Alexis of Maplewood as the New Jersey entry in the recent World Posture and Physical Fitness Pageant in Atlanta, Ga. Miss Alexis emerged as fourth runner-up. With her are officers of the society, which has its offices in Clifton; from […]

Chiropractic for Veterans

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. When you’ve been managing content on your web site for nearly 10 years, you sometimes lose track of posts you have made in the past. There was a news article on Planet Chiropractic today regarding the Keep Our Veterans Healthy Act HR 1471 and I was thinking when I posted the article that a similar one had appeared on the web site previously. After searching I discovered some related articles. There was an article posted on March 22 of 2007 related to better access for military veterans. Rep. Bob Filner of California, Sen. Blanche Lincoln of […]

8 GB Memory Stick from Patriot Memory

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I came home from the office tonight and on the table there was this new 8 Gb USB memory stick I had ordered last week. It’s about that time of year that people start thinking about gifts, and personally, I think this is something most tech geeks would just love (I know I would). A USB memory stick is one of those items that you can’t have too many of. I probably have around a dozen ranging from 256 Mb up to this latest one at eight gigs. When I broke it out of the plastic […]

Software and Attorney Mail

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. A chiropractor in Little Ferry New Jersey sent me a brochure regarding some chiropractic management software. I’ve posted a few times that have been seeking out software that’s going to work for the types of chiropractic offices I’m familiar with. This particular software was made by a company called Eclipse and the screenshots in the brochure made the package look like it was designed for Windows 95. I don’t know if the software is any good, but they certainly could’ve used some better formatting to not make the application look so archaic. I ended up talking […]
