For those chiropractors and staff that were up early in attendance Friday morning at the 2012 Parker Seminars Las Vegas, there was a special presentation on the main stage. Dillard’s, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, and Parker Seminars, put on a fashion show. It was an exciting way to start off a fabulously fashionable Friday morning in Las Vegas. Dillard’s Summer Swimsuit Fashions Admittedly, I wasn’t prepared for shooting photographs at a fashion show (I would’ve packed a different lens), but I got close enough to get some decent shots. Chiropractors tend to stand still which makes it easier to […]

Visiting NFL Stadiums

Today marks the first day of postseason play in the NFL, and while I’m excited there’s games on Saturday and Sunday, I’m already missing regular-season NFL play. For several years now, I’ve been traveling (oftentimes with Raiders fan MrsChiropractic) to football stadiums throughout the United States. We try to visit at least two stadiums per season, choosing locations that are easy to get to from major airports (since we fly out of LAX). During the 2011 NFL season, I got to see a great game at Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay Buccaneers Stadium) in Tampa, Florida. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Stadium […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I set out to perform an experiment this morning related to longtail keyphrases (in this case focused on local search). Using Twitter, the popular micro blogging service, I sent a tweet to followers, asking them to share information about their location, and local weather. An investigation like this one works best when you have active followers. Fortunately I had replies within minutes, which makes an experiment like this much easier to blog about. OK, the question asked was… Weather Near You. Tweet me City you’re in and Current Weather info. (experiment and blog post) Thnx! And […]

Got Nutz?

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. The post cards are stacked high on my desk. I’ve been out of town the past week and lots of seminar and marketing information from chiropractors were on my desk when I returned. I had to postcards from those crazy chiropractors in Orange County, Dr. Bill DeMoss and Dr. Brad Glowaki. They have a two-day seminar taking place on January 24 and January 25 in Huntington Beach. Above is a screenshot from a scan of the postcard. The program is called Nutz & Boltz and it’s designed to help chiropractors grow their practices more efficiently and […]

Blogging from the LA Auto Show

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Thanks to writing online for the past ten years, and to twitter (follow me here), I’ve been invited to cover news related to the LA Auto Show in downtown Los Angeles. From what I’ve seen so far the show looks to be an awesome experience. Even with all the doom and gloom talk about the automobile industry, this is a show people in LA can enjoy. It’s like seeing a glimpse into the future, and it’s very cool. (Photo above is the 2010 Ford Fusion Sedan) For bloggers and journalists, there is a massive media center […]

Sciatica, Software, and Seminars

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Somewhere on this blog I’ve mentioned all the postcards my chiropractic office gets throughout the week. Postcards, like this digital pedometer postcard from Dr. Steve Visentin are fairly popular, but the ones that come to my office are mostly from suppliers and vendors of chiropractic merchandise. There is a stack on my desk that are heading to the shredder. Among them are 2008 seminar dates for a physiotherapy and chiropractic technique review taking place in Bakersfield, California. Event is $235 and takes place November 8 and December 6. A chiropractor named Bridget Bonnet is putting on […]

20 years later in Elk Grove

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Dr. Steven Hansen of Elk Grove California was recently interviewed for a Planet Chiropractic news article. After the interview was nearly complete he was asked a few more questions about his chiropractic practice. Dr. Steve got into the topic with great detail so we decided to include his shared information as a separate post. The following is from Dr. Steven Hansen… After 20 years in practice I thought I had it all figured out. I had a very successful practice and many loyal patients. Then I was involved in an auto accident. I was hit from […]

Coarsegold Chiropractic Office on Highway 41

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. On a recent road trip (partially along the California five freeway) to Yosemite National Forest, I passed by a number of chiropractic offices. We stopped in Bakersfield on Friday to visit the office of Dr. James Ryan and took some photographs of chiropractic offices in Fresno. On Saturday, I was in Oakhurst, Fish Camp, and Coarsegold, and took photos of signs and outsides of chiropractic offices I located while in those towns. This photo was taken off of California Highway 41. There is a new hotel and casino in Coarsegold (which looked massive) but I didn’t […]

First Day of Summer Funnies

On the first day of a hot summer this guy should be extremely busy. Oh wait…. Slowly he would cruise the neighborhood, waiting for that occasional careless child who confused him with another vendor. Sure thing Johnny, you’ll be screaming, but it won’t be for ice cream.
