More Momentos of the Mori Variety

*brain dump* Today, July 12th, is my birthday. Most years, you’d have to remind me that it’s my emergiversarry because, hey, I’m busy enjoying my life. But this year it is sticking in the front of my mind. I made it another year. Why does it feel like “I made it”, rather than, “oh yeah, […]

Personal Advice for 2020

Arrive early. To bed. To work. To dinner. To your meeting. Imagine a world where you are slightly early for one thing per day. Or maybe even two things per day. Isn’t that a happy thought? Wouldn’t you be proud? Isn’t that a world you’d like to live in? The only way to achieve this […]

Dear therapist, you’re not a strength coach.

(or a personal trainer) When I write these types of blogs, they’re mostly in reflection because of mistakes I made earlier in my career. I feel no need to be embarrassed by most of these mistakes, although I do regret some of them. Most were faults of passion with few direct casualties. But, at this […]

The Hard-Ass Guide to Getting and Succeeding at a Great Chiropractic Associate Job

Every year I get to review about 20-50 applications for associate positions. Having co-run a sports and rehab clinic for 5 years and now co-running a pregnancy and pediatrics practice (my wife’s), it became part of the weekly routine. You would think details would be different between the two hiring processes (sports vs peds), but […]

A Statement on Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children

The Enemies Within

Sometimes I feel as though life is a drawn out and excruciating process of self discovery. The last few days have shown me this in spades. It’s amazing what hard times will do to unclothe and reveal the most basic aspect of our psyche. Until my silent drive home two hours ago, I didn’t know […]

Artistically informed, tactically focused.

After my last blog on here a few days ago, many highly intelligent people (and a few nincompoops having intelligent moments) have pointed out to me that the delineation between scientist and artist is a false dichotomy. I agree. As per usual on this blog, this is my thinking-out-loud space. So, out-loudly, here is what […]

Ignore Everybody

AKA When your wife calls you names. There have been only two books in my entire life of which I have purchased multiple copies. The first of these books will come as no surprise; I have gifted this book to so many people over the years that I probably should have been asking for a […]

(How) Does Voodoo Floss work?

REPOSTED FROM MY OLD, NOW-DEFUNCT WEBSITE. THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 2012. ***Disclaimer: I am not a Voodoo Expert (chiropractor, yes, but that’s another story). I am simply digesting out loud to stimulate my own thoughts on the matter. After having tried Voodoo Floss myself and seen great utility, I sadly found that no […]
