Recently, Dr. Jason Horowitz of Nutri-West New York visited with students at the Northeast College of Health Sciences, formerly known as New York Chiropractic College.
He asked the attendees to carefully consider what type of chiropractor they wanted to be upon graduation. Then he challenged the students to become full spectrum, natural healthcare providers.
The Full Spectrum Natural Healthcare Provider
To achieve optimum patient outcomes and build a successful and profitable chiropractic business, the clear path forward is in providing a full spectrum of services. This includes a minimum of:
- Osseous adjusting
- Applied Kinesiology
- Nutritional counseling
- Supplementation programs
- Exercise and lifestyle guidance
- Muscle and clinical testing to aid in the differential diagnosis.
Just imagine the patient loyalty and referrals you would garner by using every tool you have available to improve the health of your patients.
For example, a patient presents with a complaint of continuing pain in the arm. Instead of relying solely on osseous adjustments, you perform muscle testing and identify weaknesses that could be tied to dysfunction in the pancreas. You order blood tests that confirm improper glucose levels.
Now, in addition to adjustments, you add nutritional supplementation and counsel the patient to make some dietary and lifestyle changes including more exercise. When you re-do your blood tests in several months, not only does the patient feel better, but their bloodwork looks better too. You’ve done more than resolve pain, you’ve improved the patient’s health and quality of life.
That’s the powerful healing potential of a full spectrum natural healthcare provider.
The Students React
Clearly, this challenge was a new way of thinking for some students. According to Chris Singh, a student that attended the lecture, “Dr. Horowitz really told us and showed us what it is like to work in chiropractic care after we graduate. The school gives us a solid foundation, but he brings years of knowledge and experience in the field for more than 20 years. I know whether I open my own practice or work in another’s clinic, I’ll be using Applied Kinesiology and supplements 100% in my practice.”
Chris plans to work with mixed martial arts fighters after graduation and now sees how fighters can benefit from neural supplementation to fight inflammation.
