What I love about Chiropractic
Walking into my office each morning
Forgetting names (oops!), always remembering their spine
The Big Idea
Seeing other chiropractors go big
A mom putting her newborn in my arms for her 1st adjustment
Chiropractic posters, t shirts, stickers, tattoos, postage stamps
Cash practice… insurance doesn’t dictate health or QOL
Great staff, your big heart and people skills blow me away
Feeling goosebumps after someone’s first adjustment and we both know their life has already changed
When a four year old first learns to say “Chiropractic!”
Mentors – Bless you – thanks so much for being generous with your time, experiences and wisdom – I’ve learned so much
Walking around town, all my people shouting “Hey Dr. Madeline”
When they get it, offer more love when they don’t
Skeptics… watching their transformation
The tone of a healthy spine
I would love for chiropractic offices to lose the antibacterial soap, clean up contradictions – they do more damage than “germs”.
Lifetime care is a reality
When a practice member realizes they are subluxated and comes in between appointments
The Innate travel agency – when traveling and you meet other chiropractors, or people who need to hear the chiropractic story
The Originals — those who paved the way, with passion, principles and perspiration, so that the profession exists for us to be able to practice — big thank you!
There’s something special about a new D.C. grad — go, go, go!
We’ve gone global, connected to kindred spirits all over the world, beyond borders, boundaries or b.s.
When my commute includes chiropractic tapes
Woman comes in, comes back with her husband, they come back with their kids, she brings her office and her sister and her cousin… and so on and so on and so on
When someone grabs me to watch them bend over and tie their shoes for the first time in 10 years
Sleeping well at night, knowing I made a difference
People watching and trying to pick out those under care
Those who are difficult to appreciate, they trigger me to reconnect with my values and priorities
Meeting new people who ask me what I do and are as excited as I am when I tell them.
Seeing my office from the street.
Chiropractic at the U.N, White House Commission, Congress.
Offering compassion to a colleague who is getting recharged.
Turning the Power ON.
Knowing there’s a monster open adjusting room in heaven.
When last years goal becomes this years starting point.
When a practice member becomes drug free.
Positive articles about chiropractic in the news.
Being the positive article about chiropractic in the news.
Being a chiropractor. Practicing chiropractic. Living the chiropractic lifestyle. My chiropractic buddies.
And… Planet Chiropractic – thanks Michael!
