Introduction to Chiropractic in Spanish

A chiropractor in Orange County, California contacted me yesterday wanting to know if Planet Chiropractic still had chiropractic videos in Spanish. Back in early 2000, or sometime around there, we had a video available for sale featuring Panamanian born chiropractor Dr. Luis Ocon of Salinas, California.

Since the time I filmed the video (digitally on my handheld Sony VX1000 DV camcorder), broadband speeds have improved to the point that the entire 30 minute video could be made available online for viewing. I decided to post the video to Google sometime early last year but realized just yesterday that I didn’t make any formal announcement of doing so. (This is my formal announcement)

The audio is entirely in Spanish and it features Dr. Luis Ocon doing a new patient lecture in his Salinas office. He uses some flip charts made available from Reggie Gold, talks about chiropractic, subluxation, the spine, nervous system, rock on the hose, and the importance of receiving regular care.

I’d love to sell copies of these but I’m currently out of stock on both video cassette and DVD and have no plans to create any in the near future. Anyway, the quality that’s available online should be good enough for someone to show in their office from a computer connected to the Internet. You can provide a link to this page if you’d prefer. When I have space for a high quality digital format download of this video I’ll make some links available. It will likely be available as an ISO file so that the end-user burn the video to DVD. (Anyone interested in participating to make this happen get in touch with me via e-mail) Actually, I have the space but need the bandwidth for uploading. OK, enough of that, here’s the video…

Dang! This video player has stopped being supported long ago. Perhaps someday while post this again in another format.

Dr. Luis Ocon became world-famous in the area of chiropractic in the 1990s when, along with his wife Lina, they organized what went on to become a series of the largest chiropractic “missions” recorded to date. There were events in the late 1990s when Civic gymnasiums in locations such as Panama City, Panamá, were filled with 10,000 to 20,000 people per day coming in for free upper cervical chiropractic care. The events were captured on film and featured on regular newscasts in Central America on networks such as CNN. They were supported by the Panamanian government who organized large groups of volunteers to see that all people in the country would have access to chiropractic care.

This was the 9th mission to the country of Panama, a most popular location for CREW chiropractic missions, since the group was founded in 1997 by Dr. Luis Ocon and his wife Lina. Twenty-six chiropractors from around the globe gathered on this mission that humbly served the people of Panama. Chiropractors provided upper cervical chiropractic adjustments in locations in and around Panama city, Panama, from February 1st to the 7th.
