By Michael Dorausch, D.C. For those of you in the local Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, and Venice beach areas, I will be speaking at an event Tuesday night, along with Elmer Thomas and Andy Sorcini, which will focus on using social media to get traffic to your web site. (photo: Erica Campbell and Michael Dorausch at a search conference.

I’ll be there before 7pm and […]

Photo Slideshow DCS California Jam 2008

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I don’t think that this slideshow works if you’re using an Internet Explorer browser. It should work in Firefox. These images are from the Chiropractic California Jam which was held on Saturday, April 26, 2008, at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. More than 1000 chiropractors were in attendance for the event and it featured a lineup of incredibly talented speakers. There was also lots of heavy-metal rock ‘n roll during the intermissions. Nothing like a chiropractic conference that feels like a rock concert. One may think doctors in attendance would be listening to elevator music, […]

Try Jesus… Or Else

By Michael Dorausch I was browsing through some photos earlier this afternoon when I came across this one which was taken during a chiropractic mission trip to Nicaragua. Not sure what make of gun he is holding, but I’ve adjusted many people, while others observed while holding guns, it’s an odd experience. On the topic of mission trips, the CREW (Chiropractors Restoring Energy Worldwide) will be heading to Panamá this May. Information on mission trips to Haiti and the Dominican Republic are available here.

10 Styles of chiropractic adjusting tables

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. When you’ve been in chiropractic practice long enough, you notice people doing the funniest things with chiropractic benches and tables. Having been around these pieces of equipment for nearly 2 decades, one begins to take for granted the assumption that everybody knows how to lie down on a table, how to use a table, and what the purpose of each table is for. I grabbed photos of 10 different styles of chiropractic adjusting tables which I found in classified ads for chiropractic tables, and I’ll be displaying them here. A few will be marked with red […]

DiscForce and other bulk e-mails

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’m starting to have fun going through the bulk mailboxes for one of our chiropractic servers. It handles e-mail for dozens of chiropractic web sites. Now that we’ve got more aggressive filtering out spam, it’s easier to see when people or bots are targeting every e-mail address on the server. In previous posts I’ve written about spam e-mail targeted at chiropractors and it’s been covered in the news. There was a popular niche industry post and an article focused on decompression spam e-mails. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, it’s not the pay day loan e-mails […]

Dead Chiropractors and other May Events

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There’s a few chiropractic seminars and events going on during the month of May, which I wanted to bring to your attention. First, before April wraps up, Southern California chiropractors will be gathering together in Newport Beach, California for the one and only California Jam being hosted by the dead chiropractic society. After you’re done partying in the OC area of Southern California, you can had up north to Sacramento for the 2008 Legislative Conference which is taking place on Tuesday, May 6, 2008. The event is taking place at the Sheraton Grand and it’s brought […]

Student Loan Market Crunch was Big News

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I didn’t realize the news regarding education and the student loan crisis in the United States was as big news as it turned out to be. There was a student loan article appearing on planet chiropractic this past Thursday, and I caught a chuckle when I noticed it included with hundreds of related news articles from the day. I was in the office seeing patients on Thursday and I noticed a familiar face when I went to check news for the day. The person in the image (shown in the screen grab) works in my chiropractic […]

This post is a continuation of mission news coverage authored by Chiropractor, Peter Morgan. Now on to Haiti… Jason O’Connor, DC, from Antioch, California was the primary chiromission organiser of the Haiti expedition and led the brave team of Chiropractors. David Hecht, DC, from New York was another mission leader, and John Palmer, Chiropractic Student at Life University was the student leader. There was a lot of uncertainty on both sides (Haiti and ChiroMission) as to how this was going to work, said Dr. O’Connor. I was organizing with people who have never received an adjustment, and who do not […]

Chiropractor Map Results and Blended Search

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I saw a domain for sale today and it prompted me to begin searching for some local chiropractic related terms. One thing led to another and I found myself searching Bakersfield Chiropractic. I was amused to discover a post from planet chiropractic news displayed within the search results but what I found really neat was a few examples of blended search which provided an opportunity to put together this hopefully educational post. I captured three different screenshots with the first one being displayed below. The search I performed included results for an article appearing on Planet […]

Use a Top Story and Tie it into Your Site

The following is Part #4 of a 4 part audio transcribing (part #1 is here, part #2, and part #3) of an interview with Michael Dorausch, founder of Planet Chiropractic. The audio was transcribed from a phone interview which focused on marketing and tips for building traffic to one’s website. Andrew: Okay, can you tell me some of your success stories. Let’s start with the one about Van Halen that Brian Deagan was talking about. Mike: Okay, Van Halen was nice. And again this is an example of how easy all of this can happen. So I’m a big Van […]
