There is a literal ocean of information out there. Seminars, webinars, emails, speakers, conferences, and it goes on and on and on!
Out of these sources, countless messages, strategies, and opinions come your way every single day, extolling tried and tested methods to help your chiropractic practice miraculously grow and flourish.
But we know the reality, don’t we?
Real change takes time, consistent efforts, and perseverance. Here are 5 real tips to help you take action today!
- ‘More’ does not equal ‘Better’
Most of us, have this natural tendency to want to accumulate as much information as we manage before we take any action!
Does this resonate with you?
For example, you might face a challenge regarding better patient care. Naturally, you head online for advice, then you consult with your peers to get their views, and before you know it, you’re up to your neck in ideas but still not clear where to start and time passes, and nothing has been done about solving your challenge.
You can gather all the information you like, but it is pointless if you don’t start somewhere. The process of information gathering may be comforting but that’s precisely why it cannot be relied upon for too long.
Taking action often involves uncertainty and doubt and a fear of failing. Push yourself through the analysis paralysis, back yourself, make a plan and do something tangible about it.
2. Run your own race!
It’s all rainbows and roses when you come across a chiropractic success coach or a motivational speaker who lights that fire within you!
It is amazing to be inspired by others and gain strength through their experiences. But you must sort through many processes and strategies to find what works for you!
Your chiropractic practice is unique and has its own strengths and weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Identify what those are, with the help of your team perhaps! and come up with solutions that are right for your practice!
3. There is no ‘magic pill’
It can be so alluring to think that, out there, somewhere, there is a perfect, tailor-made solution to transform your chiropractic practice for good!
The reality, as you know it, is that your practice consists of many moving parts, ever-evolving, all of which are super-important to keep tabs on and improve constantly.
Just gaining new patients will not help you achieve chiropractic success. You will have to improve your SOPs, stay on top of marketing efforts, and excel at patient care. All of it counts. You will need all these little and not-so-little moving parts to function in tandem! That’s when you will see a greater degree of chiropractic success.
4. Do what you can, where you can, when you can
Does running your practice sometimes feel like running a race with no finish line in sight?
You’ve heard before – work smart, not hard. Address the areas that are lacking and make the needed upgrades. Use tools and technology to make your life easier and hire experts to handle what you don’t need to.

5. It’s not about the numbers
Don’t let revenues and profits define chiropractic success for you. Veteran practice owners will tell you that this business isn’t going to get you super rich.
Instead, train your focus on your physical, mental, and emotional well-being and nurturing fulfilling relationships with your staff, patients, and community.
Realize that you are blessed to be in a position where you can help others and yourself and enjoy a stable, healthy lifestyle while doing so.
