Let’s talk about subconscious capacity issues that keep chiropractors from growing. We’ve done a lot of seminars all over the world, and we have seen that if we ask 100 people in a room- “how many of you would love to have a busier practice, more new patients, more retention?” One hundred percent of the hands in the room go up. We all want that to help more people.
Sometimes there are subconscious or energetic blocks that keep us from getting there. And that may sound strange, but just hear us out.
We all know about structural or procedural blocks where you just can’t physically see anymore patients or there are issues with the flow of the office. But there’s also something that happens a lot when you are not energetically or physically aligned. Most chiropractors that have been in practice for a long time, are either bored, beating themselves up, or they’re burnt out because they’re doing the same thing over and over and wearing themselves out.
One thing you can do to energetically open that block is to make sure that you are taking care of your body all day long. If you’re going home and you’re tired, or your shoulders are sore, or your back hurts, or your wrist is banged up at the end of the day, you may intellectually want to see more people, but your body says, no, I can’t see more people. That is the subconscious block that will limit your growth. Personally, I was doing pretty high volume. I was doing about 500 a week for a few years. I would come home at the end of the day and it was terrible. I was doing a lot of anterior dorsals and taking elbows to the chest all day long. My chest would just collapse. I couldn’t take a deep breath and it would take me about 45 minutes to an hour to be able to actually open up and breathe deeply. If I’m seeing 125 a day like that, and I want to get to 200 a day, there’s just no way my subconscious is going to let me do that. My innate intelligence will say you’re not doing that to yourself. You’re beating yourself up so bad doing this volume. There’s no way that we’re going to let you take it to the next level.
So just like we want to do everything procedurally as efficiently as possible so that we get the most output for the least input, the same thing should be true of our adjusting. So look at yourself; look at your adjustments in the office. Where are you feeling it in your body? Where are you beat up? Your shoulders? Your wrist? Is it your lower back? Are you catching ribs? Pay attention to that. Come train with us and let’s see how we can clean that up so we can help take you to the next level.
