After speaking with hundreds and hundreds of Chiropractors, it's always interesting to see the diversity of opinions of how Chiropractic is actually practiced in individual offices.
Some are more musculoskeletal based, some are more subluxation based, and some do both or none at all!
Regardless of recommendations, opinions, beliefs or means of practice, there's always one question that I pose that seems to resonate with everyone.
That question is, "Do you think that periodic check-ups are good thing?"
If you keep statistics in your practice, you'll notice specific trends over long periods of time.
One of those statistics is called PVA or Patient Visit Average.
This information will simply tell you how often a patient returns to your office on average.
Some chiropractors believe that this number is a negative statistic because you need to give a certain number of office visit recommendations to have a high PVA!
This is simply not the case.
Whether you think visit to visit, care plans or a lifestyle, people still have physical, chemical and emotional stress in their lives...every single day.
This stress accumulates onto the nervous system resulting in adaptation...sometimes we adapt well...sometimes we don't!
When you speak with your patients, tell them I never heard anyone wake up and exclaim, "Wow...my teeth feel great today...I think I'll call my dentist and quit!"
Check-ups are a good thing and tell your patients why!
Their lives will be better...and so will yours!
