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 I will update as content gets added. I am working on audio first, format going forward is mp3, which I expect will be compatible for nearly everyone.
Chiropractic audio can be listened to here or downloaded and loaded onto your mp3 player of choice. I love having chiropractic philosophy (especially from these old school docs) on my phone.
Eventually, I’ll provided links to all the mp3 files that are available for listening/downloading.
UPDATE: The Ian Grassam 1997 post has been updated, a one hour mp3 to listen to or download.
UPDATE: 405 FWY Chiropractor Interview has been updated, see player/download link below.
Chiropractic Podcasting & Mp3 Playback
Once upon a time, people used dial up modems to listen or watch this content (long before YouTube existed). I had to make files available in a number of formats since almost nobody in 1998 had an mp3 player. Many of the links on this page may not yet be functional, but I will update them so files can be listened to or downloaded.
Mission to Panama – Feb 2004 – The CREW (Chiropractors Restoring Energy Worldwide) 10th Chiropractic mission was completed on February 7th, 2004. In the outdoor lobby of the El Panama Hotel, we interviewed several doctors and individuals that were involved in the mission. There are 3 separate audio files, all in mp3 format. We discussed flow, volume of people adjusted, spiritual aspects of the mission and several other topics. Thank you to everyone that made this experience possible.

405 FWY – Chiropractors on the road – Doctors of chiropractic on the road – This podcast was recorded on Monday, April 3rd, 2006. Three chiropractors (Dr. Don Trepany, Dr. Robert Bates, and myself) were on the way to a chiropractic event in Orange County and I decided to record our conversations. The quality of this recording is not great but there are some good things discussed. Topics discussed include stuck thinking, things to go over on x-rays, why chiropractors fail, taking naps, high volume offices, and more. Both Drs. Rob and Don see lots of people and they had some great answers to my questions. Warning: material may not be suited for some audiences.
The photo above is of Dr. Michael Blum (a great chiropractor in North Hollywood, CA) and Dr. Rob Bates. Aside from my annoying voice (I was closest to the mic) and the background traffic noise, this material is quite inspirational.

Sharon Gorman, D.C. – Dr. Sharon Gorman introduces us to the FOCUS Chiropractic Philosophy Weekend in Newport Beach, California.
“Take the bone off the nerve and get out of the way so God can do the healing. The adjustment is so simple but for some reason the challenge in chiropractic is not about giving the adjustment. You are all going to figure out how to move the bone. The ones that are most successful are the ones that can share chiropractic with people in such a way that it motivates them into becoming lifetime patients.”

Reggie Gold, D.C. – Recorded in Orange County, California in December of 2000.
What are you going to do next year to make you a better chiropractor than you were this year? If you can decide that, we have moved everything forward. If you don’t decide that… then, very easily your going to get up next year, your going to do the same damn thing and your going to say “well I’m helping my community” and it’s true, “I’m a good chiropractor” and it’s true. But you could be better.
