LA Marathon 2009 Favorite Photos

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Many thank you’s to the folks at the official Los Angeles Marathon website for having Planet Chiropractic at the 2009 LA Marathon as part of event media coverage. Our coverage of the LA Marathon began last week, with news on preparations for the event, and concerns about potential heat in Los Angeles. The weather turned out to be spectacular for running a marathon, as morning temperatures hovered around the low 60s Fahrenheit, something event organizers and runners were all happy about. On Saturday, Planet Chiropractic had news on 6 elite runners and their thoughts on running […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. If you have been reading Planet Chiropractic news the past few months you may be wondering what’s been going on with all the marathon related content. Actually, we’ve had marathon related content for about four years now, but there’s really been plenty of marathons taking place in the past few months. I love to run. Most people who know me know that I like to get out on the beach and run as a way to keep physically fit and mentally fit. I had been reminding myself that I’ve got to summarize some of the marathon […]

Chiropractic Domain Acquisitions

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Planet Chiropractic added two chiropractic related domains yesterday, to a list of acquisitions made over the course of the past few months. The first was a chiropractic website for chiropractor Brandon Takahashi of Takahashi Chiropractic in West Los Angeles. I had built a chiropractic website for him back in 2001, which featured information for his then Malibu office and chiropractic office in West LA. Like I’ve seen lots of other chiropractors do, Dr. Takahashi didn’t renew his domain, and it was deleted from the registry as a result. This is something I see chiropractors do far […]

Herniated Discs Getting on Your Nerves

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’ve been playing around with a Canon digital SLR camera I purchased last month for taking photographs around chiropractic offices. The plan is to begin using in-house photographs for article posts ( like this spinal column seen in a recent classified ad news post) that are of better quality than we’ve shown in the past. I’m new to using a digital SLR but so far it’s been pretty interesting. I recently picked up a flash attachment and some other accessories. Next on the list is a specialized lens for taking photographs primarily inside chiropractic offices. Utilizing […]

Checking Chiropractor Site Validity

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. In last week’s chiropractic traffic report I mentioned that we’d be addressing a series of ways chiropractors can do a little bit more research on the chiropractic websites they are doing business with. When a chiropractic directory company calls your office or you get pitched at a chiropractic seminar, you should have ways to check and see if the claims they are making are at all valid. I’m going to show one screenshot, and talk briefly about very easy ways chiropractors can check up on websites they are thinking about doing business with. The next time […]

Press and Media Releases

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I receive e-mails several times a week from businesses and individuals seeking to post press releases and media releases to Planet Chiropractic news. In the more than 10 years that people have been e-mailing stuff our way, I’m surprised how few have discovered the difference between the right way and the wrong way to submit information. Just because you’ve developed a new chiropractic adjusting device, or have just become an affiliate for some sort of nutritional multilevel marketing program, doesn’t mean you have news to share. It may be news to you, but it’s really not […]

Nigerian Scammer Loaded Martins

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. As annoying as it may seem (I’m sure it’s no fun for you guys to see these posts over and over again) when scammers try to take advantage of chiropractic classifieds users, actually enjoy the satisfaction I get when we trace them down. Were not even done with the investigation on Martins Gilbert and already there is someone else using the name Martins in a scam noticed earlier this morning. What’s cool about this one as it doesn’t look like the scammer bothered to use a proxy (the last one was using AT&T out of Texas) […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Here’s the latest scammer sending e-mails to chiropractors that have chiropractic classified ads posted. The same e-mail was sent to about a dozen individuals that have products or equipment for sale. I’ve already been contacted by at least half a dozen different chiropractors that received the below e-mail at different times in the day. Scammers watch out, the chiropractic community is kicking butt and taking names. The alias being used, and the company being used, is as follows… WOODLAND PROPERTY INVESTMENT/CONSULATANT <> Martins Gilbert Sender IP: Here is the e-mail that is sent… Good […]

Chiropractic Henderson Nevada

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Just as I completed the Chiropractor 15683 post I had a request from someone seeking a chiropractor in the Henderson Nevada area. I conducted some online searches and laughed when I noticed the Chiropractors Nevada page appearing in the top results. Only two chiropractors were listed on the page but that was good enough for me to give a referral. I got some more information like what the prospective patient was looking for, had they been to a chiropractor before, were they seeking a specific technique (like NUCCA Upper Cervical or Gonstead). If they had been […]
