Multimedia Pages at Planet Chiropractic

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. You may be wondering where the heck did all the mp3 files and chiropractic video files go? Most of this content was created in the 1990s and early 2000s and it’s been long overdue for an overhaul. Many of the formats (especially for video) are not compatible with today’s browsers and mobile phones. They won’t be gone forever though, preserving the legacy of chiropractic is too important, and I do intend to get most (if not all) of the content posted in up to date formats. For now, this post will serve as a marker that […]

Thanksgiving Recipes Side Dish Videos

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. 7 videos of Thanksgiving side dish recipes to spark your taste buds for Thanksgiving 2008. It’s that time of year, November 2008, and Thanksgiving is almost here. We already ordered our organic free range Turkey from Whole Foods in Venice Beach, California and I’ve been doing some searches for tasty Thanksgiving side dishes like cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie. I found myself watching a lot more videos versus just finding and downloading Thanksgiving side dish recipes. I figured why not post those videos here (at least I’d have them for Thanksgiving 2009) and maybe save […]

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor TED Talk

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor says “we are the life force power of the universe.” More than 10 years ago Jill had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: On December 10 of 1996, she realized she was having a massive stroke. A blood vessel had exploded in the left half of her brain, and in the course of four hours she experienced her brain completely deteriorate in its ability to process all information. Watch this stunning 18 minute video in which Jill Taylor shares her experience. The last few minutes are the most inspirational. The […]

A video clip of Bill Maher and his thoughts on America’s pharmaceutical industry. If you believe you need to take all the pills the pharmaceutical industry says you do, then you’re already on drugs. Bill Maher talks about that time in the campaign where all the candidates are presenting their health care proposals. In the video Maher states… But none of the plans address the real problem. We won’t stop being sick, unless we stop making ourselves sick. The government isn’t your nanny… this guy is funny. Check out the video and pass it on to a friend.

Video of LA Chiropractor Goes Web 2.0 Viral

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. A few weeks ago someone contacted me to let me know that a chiropractic adjusting video, which was filmed during a lunch break in my LA office, was featured on the homepage of a social networking business website. Take a look at the screenshot below and then we’ll talk about it. What you see above is a screenshot I took on the homepage of a Seattle-based social networking web site. The image links directly to the video, which is hosted at Google video, if you are interested in watching it. Basically what happened is that this […]

First Chiropractic Adjustment Video

Some chiropractic humor for the Fourth of July holiday week! This chiropractic comedy video was filmed in January of 2001 at a hotel in Eatontown, New Jersey. The video features a group of chiropractors and their spouses acting out a skit of the first chiropractic adjustment. This was a long, long time ago, before Harvey Lillard and DD Palmers adjustment in 1895. If you don’t have a sense of humor it’s a good idea for you to just move along and not watch the video. For those of you OK to have some fun, check out the video, which includes […]

Toggle Recoil Chiropractic Adjustment

I shot this video clip at a Dynamic Essentials seminar back in the late 1990s. It’s a quick 28 second clip of a chiropractor adjusting another chiropractor using a drop headpiece. Notice how relaxed the person getting adjusted is and how quick the chiropractor makes the adjustment. How long should an adjustment take anyway? Once upon a time there was a video here. If I ever locate it’s source I will upload it and add a link. Thank you to the chiropractors that allowed me to capture this video clip. Check it out and pass it on!

Chiropractic Adjustment in Los Angeles Office

This chiropractic video was filmed in January of 2006. It features a young woman getting adjusted on a Lloyd 402 Thompson-like drop table. In the video we go through a functional leg check, do some drop table adjusting, and some hands-on diversified style chiropractic adjustments. The video was originally posted as a plug for my ADIO chiropractic office in Los Angeles. Checking it a year later I noticed it’s been viewed over 7000 times. Two weeks ago we had a new patient from New York that said he viewed that particular video sometime last year and that’s how he knew […]

Taking Chiropractic X-Rays Of the Cervical Spine

Do you know what I would’ve paid to have access to demonstrations on how to take chiropractic x-rays when I was in chiropractic College? As far as I can remember, things like that did just not exist. As students, we had to visit chiropractic offices, observe in chiropractic clinics, and sit in classrooms listening to lectures if we wanted to get any of this information. With technology advancing the way it is the ability to display and distribute video online is getting almost as easy as a cut-and-paste procedure. Today I shot a simple video that took only a few […]

Herniated Discs and Chiropractic Educational Video

The other day I posted a video link of a mini lecture I presented on spinal vertebrae. Using one of those popular plastic spine models, the ones that show four stages of degeneration, I answered some of the questions people ask me all the time in my chiropractic office. I filmed another video yesterday, and my staff even created a neat 5 x 7 flash card with my office website information on it ( because they love when people say they saw something about us on the Internet. The video is a real easy to make, and even though I […]
