Snapshot E-Mail Spam Targeted at Chiropractors

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

It’s not like I’ve seen any decrease in spam showing up in my e-mail inbox (or the admin section for comments on this blog) but we’ve been taking a different approach with the topic lately and it’s actually gotten us some good feedback and attracted some links. Woo Hoo.

I wrote about niche industry e-mail spam a few weeks ago, and it turns out a number of other small-business industries are experiencing similar types of spam created by those working inside the niche. That article has a screenshot, but this post includes another, that I grabbed yesterday evening.

manipulation under anesthesia e-mail spamming

It’s not like I only got seven spam e-mails to the inbox, this was just what appeared at the top of the fold. We have some MUA (manipulation under anesthesia) spam from some American Academy of something or other. There is also spam from a chiropractic company trying to promote attracting more new patients with great insurance. I’ve requested removal for multiple Planet Chiropractic e-mail addresses being sent by that group but they continue to appear. Time to contact the ISP. Until the, their e-mails will get lumped in with the learning how to attain large measurements and how to clone oneself.

Turns out that one of the e-mails sent was not actually spam, it just got misdirected into the bulk e-mail box. Can you tell which one? I sometimes can’t on first glance, so on a good day I will scan through some of these e-mails (usually 300 to 600) and hopefully pull out the ones that aren’t spam. In most cases they are first-time contacts from people I haven’t received e-mail from in the past.

That’s my e-mail spam report for the day, hopefully there won’t be many more.

  1. I read a really great article by Dr Bobby Braile in a newsletter last month. Chiropractors who use deceitful business tactics such as spamming, and other unethical practices are people without strong morals or values, who have no philosophy.

    That’s why I feel they’re business is failing, and have to resort to the next BIG thing that comes along (like foot machines for chiropractors??!!) Although I am a currently a student who will start at Parker in a few months, I have owned and operated my own business, and like any successful business, if you don’t believe in your product, neither will anyone else. If you lack the philosophy, you will never be successful!

    Dr. Braile said it best, We have been given the most precious gift of chiropractic. Why would we want to do anything less than that in a chiropractic office. The MOST IMPORTANT thing a chiropractor can do is to correct vertebral subluxations. No other therapy, procedure, juice or treatment, can even come close to the miracles that happen when a properly delivered, “specific scientific chiropractic adjustment” is given… The unfortunate truth I hear when someone talks about these procedures is money. I have yet to hear anyone in chiropractic tell me that a decompression machine helps a patient with lower back pain faster than specific scientific chiropractic adjustments. All I hear about is how much money this can make… I believe God called us to be chiropractors. I believe we were given the most precious gift of being able to deliver a specific scientific chiropractic adjustment. I believe that NOTHING is more powerful, or more important to give to a world that is sick and suffering. Why then would so many, choose to do less, when they can deliver the pinnacle of health care. Why settle for less, when you were given more… I did not intent to offend, but if you were offended I suggest that the offence my be generated by the conflict you feel within. I do not apologize. I may be accused of looking at things through rose colored glasses, but I believe…
    …It Needs To Be Said!

  2. You have a tremendous amount to learn. I’am a chiro and have been for the past 10 years. What your saying is positive and all good, but not reality. We treat about 8% of the population and in order to survive you better be doing something more than preaching the subluxation theory.
    Good Luck.
