By Michael Dorausch, D.C. More photos from around 1998. I suspect these were probably made in the 1970s or 1980s and I don’t remember how I ended up getting copies of them. Both show Woody woodpecker checking the spine of Andy Panda while he’s lying face down on a chiropractic adjusting bench. One image is of far better quality. I may have the original copies of the drawing somewhere in my stacks of chiropractic media. Do kids today know who Woody woodpecker is? Andy Panda lies facedown on a chiropractic adjusting bench (kind of looks like my Galaxy adjusting table) […]

Local Custom Chiropractic Upholstery

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Earlier this year I began the search for an upholstery service that could do custom work on the chiropractic tables in my office. I knew that companies existed doing work for chiropractors, but I was having a difficult time finding anybody serving the Los Angeles area. Proof that postcard marketing still works, I received this upholstery postcard from Roy’s Upholstery in North Hollywood California. I called him for an estimate. Since it was the year-end I wanted to get all the tables in the office redone. We were fortunate that a lot of people were adjusted […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There must be dozens of different ways to contact me. I’m sure the experience is similar for you. Most of us have that primary e-mail address, then there’s the e-mail address used when we want to mark things sent as spam, and e-mail addresses used when not communicating with friends and family. I estimate I have about a dozen different e-mail addresses that get used regularly, I just don’t get a chance to check them on a daily basis. Earlier this year I had a new business card created that didn’t have any information from my […]

Miscellaneous 2008 Stuff

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Going through Picasa photo archives for 2008 and figured I’d post some of the images from the past year to this blog. In January 2008 I upgraded the monitors at my home office with 3 24 inch Dell LCD screens and I’ve been using that set up all year. Looking back from now, I’ve gotten pretty spoiled as a result, and have managed to fill all three desktops with applications and browser tabs I use frequently. My goal for 2008 is to modify the desk for even better ergonomics. In February I was at a chiropractic […]

Winter Solstice Photos

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. December 21, 2008 marks the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. It is a time when the Sun’s position in the sky is at its greatest angular distance from the position of the observer, meaning in the northern hemisphere it is the shortest day of the year. The winter solstice marks the reversal in gradually shortening days and the event is celebrated in many cultures as a time of renewing or rebirth. Here is a collection of photographs taken in different locations throughout the Northern Hemisphere during the day of winter solstice. In the northern hemisphere, […]

2008 Holiday Chiropractic Postcards

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of postcards and postcard marketing for not only chiropractic businesses, but for other small businesses as well. Sending postcards was on my list of 23 surefire small-business marketing techniques for 2008, and I’ll be recommending postcards for 2009 as well. I received two postcards yesterday from two different California chiropractors and I wanted to share them both here. The first one comes from Capitol Chiropractic in Sacramento, and it features seasons greetings from 3 wonderful ladies (I’ve never actually met Angela Basset but I’m a pushover for big […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. In my recent posts about x-ray seminars and Karl Parker seminars I mentioned not yet having information for CCA California Chiropractic Association seminars taking place in 2009. Last year the CCA held affordable relicensing seminars throughout the state of California, and I was trusting they would continue with a similar format for 2009. Less than an hour from me completing the post regarding the x-ray seminars, I had a fax received at my office from the CCA regarding an upcoming chiropractic seminar taking place in San Diego. I ran the fax through my Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 […]

Photos: 1998 Chiropractic Trip to Panama

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. It’s hard to believe that these photographs are older than the web site. They were taken in May of 1998 and the site did not launch until December of the same year. There has been audio and video online from the 1990s Panamá mission’s since a short time after the chiropractic website was launched, there have also been dozens of Panamá related news articles. I mentioned cleaning the office and finding photographs stored on hard drives and I’ll be posting some of them here for historic purposes. Below are five different photographs from the 1998 […]

2008 Year End Chiropractor Thank Yous

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There’s some cleaning up going on at the planetchiropractic world headquarters in Los Angeles, and I’m being thankful while going through files and documents from the years passed. There are lots of chiropractors to thank, but I like to do some shout outs on names and addresses from time to time. Your continued use of the site and your support is greatly appreciated, many thanks. The little guy in the image above (n8) used to appear on the homepage of the planetc1site around January 2000. It’s one of thousands of images sitting on local hard drives. […]

2009 DC License Renewal Seminars

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This post gets filed in seminars and events. I received a mailing from my former x-ray instructor at CCCLA regarding his 2009 x-ray and adjusting license renewal seminars. Figured I’d scan and post the flyer for those that might be seeking chiropractic continuing education in the California area for 2009. The content below is from the flyer I received… X-ray Case Presentation Part II & Cervical Adjustive Techniques Radiology Case Presentation – 8 Hours CE Credits in X-Ray Interesting X-Ray Case Presentation for 2009 Integration with history &, physical findings Differential diagnoses will be discussed Advanced […]
