Parker Seminars 2012 San Diego

A Journey to Becoming a Better You!

Parker Seminars has joined up with the California Chiropractic Association for a seminar taking place in San Diego California on May 4-6, 2012. The 2012 CCA Annual Convention and Exposition is taking place at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego, California. I’ve been to this resort property before (for another CCA summer convention) and it’s a great hotel property for a chiropractic conference. Very relaxing place and perfect hotel if you’re bringing along family.

Core Pasadena Chiropractic 2012 Schedule February March April


C.O.R.E. refers to the idea that if we can put our differences aside, and unite on our strengths, then we are one step away from impacting and area and two steps away from impacting our profession and a sick care system that is failing. While we agree with the first couple of lines, we’re not sure about impacting all chiropractors so we will start with a C.O.R.E.!

But we believe it won’t take much to tip the profession, and we in the San Gabriel Valley feel as if it isn’t too far from happening with C.O.R.E.’s popping up nationwide. We are committed to making a difference. We’ve been trying to prove that it’s not the quantity of chiropractors coming together but the quality of chiropractors coming together that will make the biggest difference.

The C.O.R.E. group drives home the idea that we are all connected to accomplish something great in a profession we love. It has been our hope since C.O.R.E. was launched in August 2003, that C.O.R.E. will be more than just a generic organization, rather a force for good, by bringing social conscious to social/professional networking while building a foundation toward becoming the premiere organization in chiropractic while working with established organizations within our profession. We look forward to your involvement.

RSVP by contacting Dr. Dennis Buckley at 626-991-8877.

Location: Health Advantage Health & Wellness Center

All In One Day Chiropractic Seminars California

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Like nearly all chiropractors throughout the US, I get mail regularly for continuing education seminars, and for relicensing events taking place in the states I’m licensed to practice in. Those in the business of running these events typically post details to the chiropractic seminars pages but sometimes I’ll highlight particular events coming up (most typically for the state of California) so they either appear also in the news or these chiropractic blog pages. I don’t attend every continuing chiropractic education event that comes to Los Angeles, but I try to attend one event per month on average, if I can fit it into my schedule. There is lots of great stuff being taught via many of the continuing education programs in the US, think about attending even when you’re not going for licensure renewal.

American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists Las Vegas

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Among the dozens of chiropractic postcards I receive at my office each week, there was one the other day for a clinical chiropractic seminar taking place in Las Vegas. The American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists is presenting their Clinical Update 2011 on April 28-30, at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada.

American College Chiropractic Orthopedists

The above photograph of the postcard I received has information for registering online, as well as a phone number for the Tropicana Hotel and Casino. If you’re going to this event, don’t forget room rates are only available until April 6 (highlighted in red).

The other side of the card mentions a few brief things about the clinical conference. Looks like there is a lower seminar registration fee from in the past (which includes two lunches and two breakfasts), there are excellent Vegas Hotel rates ( the lowest they’ve had in many years), and there is a 5% discount for members of NCMIC.

I will be in Las Vegas earlier that week (non-chiropractic conference), but I won’t be attending the clinical event, still I wanted to post the information. It’s not necessarily the type of chiropractic event you’d typically find me attending, but I’ve found over the years, it’s better to the information out there, and let chiropractors make choices on which continuing education and chiropractic seminars they want to attend.

For seminar registration fees, check with the ACCO, since that information isn’t on the card. I’ve mentioned at least a few times before, that I love Las Vegas for conferences (mostly because of the ease of getting to from Los Angeles), and if you happen to be a chiropractor going to Las Vegas at the end of April, this gives you one more reason to do so.

Sorry the photograph isn’t of the greatest quality. If you cannot read the address for the American College of Chiropractic Orthopedics because of the excessive light, it is 653 Main St., Melrose, MA 02176.

California Chiropractic Exposition and Convention

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

I’m heading off to Reno Nevada for the 2010 CCA Annual Chiropractic Convention at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. I’m excited about the many hours of chiropractic continuing education being offered, and I’m even more excited that those hours are free for existing CCA members. I’ve already been to half a dozen chiropractic conferences or seminars since the beginning of January this year, but I often find myself strolling around with a camera taking photos (like DCS Orange County photos), and chatting it up with other chiropractors. Sometimes you have to sit in the classroom and get things done.

California Chiropractic ADIOCalifornia Chiropractic

I’ll still be out and about with camera and digital recorder, but only during times I’m not getting hours for my own license renewal. The diversified adjusting classes look real promising, hoping they cover some good chiropractic adjustment technique. Bring your business cards, as I plan to do a few chiropractor business card posts when I return from Nevada. It’s a nice way to get some free chiropractic marketing for your practice, but if you don’t have your business cards handy, it is going to be more difficult to include you.

We’ve had a flood of e-mails already this morning on yesterday’s post regarding automating chiropractor listings. All the chiropractors that have e-mailed with updated office information, staff is adding it to the database, but don’t expect an e-mail reply (they may not respond to everyone). Instead I suggest you check your city and or state listing to see that information is accurate and up-to-date. If you are sending information this week, allow about 30 days before it appears online.

We’ll be doing some user testing (I’m bringing a laptop) with random chiropractors while at the event this weekend, to see how well they handle the chiropractor admin interface. What I didn’t mention in the news article yesterday was that chiropractors will be able to (unless it becomes a major headache) modify their own address and phone number information after creating a user account. About freaking time. All righty then, if you’re in Reno for the weekend festivities, be sure to say hello.

Chiropractor 15683

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Tips on finding local chiropractors that meet the qualities being sought by prospective patients.

There were two notes on my desk with zip codes for chiropractors being sought in different parts the United States. One note read: Doris 92078 San Marcus and the other simply said Chiropractor 15683.


It’s easy to think that it would be no problem finding a chiropractor in the 15683 postal code area. Performing a search for the postal code only, I see that it’s the area of Scottdale, Pennsylvania.

Sometimes I’ll do a search for Scottdale chiropractors or Scottdale chiropractic to see if any familiar names appear. I’m more likely to refer someone to a chiropractor I’ve previously been adjusted by, someone that’s already had me visiting their office ( I’ve been inside hundreds of chiropractic offices across the US), someone I know from chiropractic conferences, or someone I know that has a good reputation amongst others in the chiropractic industry.

It’s not necessarily the things a consumer would be seeking, but those are just my standards. If I can’t locate a chiropractor in that area, I almost always rely on the following technique ( which gets really good results).

Contact other chiropractors in the city, state, or region. In this example, I’ll check out Chiropractors Pennsylvania to get a list of chiropractors I know and trust. Sometimes I’ll e-mail or call a few chiropractors on the list, asking them if they know who’s a good chiropractor in the area that I’m seeking information on.

Often times I find myself passing that information on to people that have been contacting me. I get calls and e-mails on a regular basis from people all across the United States (and other parts of the world) seeking chiropractic care. Not all are seeking Get adjusted on a regular basis for the rest of my life and I’d like to bring my family care so I often try to get some more information before making a referral.

Some chiropractors I found have awesome skills when it comes to making referrals to others, other chiropractors (and they may be even good practitioners) have crappy skills when it comes to making referrals, I usually take them off my contact lists.

The 92078 is for a chiropractor in San Marcos. Whoever wrote me the note put San Marcus so I am glad they included a zip code.

I’m sure we will locate qualified practitioners in both of these areas, but I’ve got to organize my checklist for future references.
