New Chiropractic Student Resource Site Opens!

Several years ago the site was a method of communications and news during the Life University turmoil, as well as the leadership changes at Palmer.  During those times continued to post links to available current news on those important issues and helped keep students and their families informed. 

Now is reopening as a major student resource and open forum for chiropractic students everywhere. The new site features an open forum which allows students to communicate with each other and share ideas, thoughts, and information that will hopefully make the student experience both easier and more productive.

The forums are divided into various topics for easy access. Some of the forums include Student Life, Clubs, Events, Boards and Exams, Philosophy, Science, Art/Technique and a specific forum for each college.

In addition to the open forums there are other student resources that include a Calendar, helpful links, a classifieds section, and more. As time continues we will continue to add information, documents and other resources that will be of value to students. 

The site is open to students, educators and Doctors of Chiropractic.  We would like to encourage DCs who would like to share their knowledge and wisdom with students to participate by posting on this site.  To prevent SPAM and protect the integrity of this forum you must register to place a post, but there is no cost, and your information will not be shared with anyone.

The site is totally free!  We do not believe in charging students for the ability to share and grow.




The 34th Principle Email Newsletter Hits 50th Edition

The 50th edition of the philosophy based email newsletter, "The 34th Principle" has just gone out to thousands of chiropractors and students.  The 34th Principle is a sister publication to The Information Age and was initiated in September of 2003.  Since then some of the best philosophical minds in chiropractic have shared their insights and passion for this profession.

The 34th Principle email newsletter is the free offering from the non-profit "New Beginnings" chiropractic meetings. As it states on their website, "New Beginnings is dedicated to preserving, protecting, and perpetuating philosophically based principled Chiropractic without compromise, innately serving mankind, while enhancing the quality of life today, creating a healthier more perfect world."

The meetings are held three times a year in New Jersey and are attended by hundreds of students and chiropractors from all over the world.  These meetings feature many of the authors of articles that have been a part of past issues of The 34th Principle.  For more information on New Beginnings and the meetings, you can visit their website at

News Your Patients Might Have Missed

As chiropractors we usually remain aware of the news related to our profession.  However, when you are busy seeing patients you don't always have time to scan numerous news sources for articles on chiropractic all over the world. That's where we come in!  We look for news on chiropractic and our paradigm of wellness continuously.  We find news and articles that you do not have the time to look for and review.

Over the past years, the Now You Know Newsletter has delivered chiropractic news to hundreds of thousands of patients.  This news has been delivered in a way that connects the dots, and brings patients and the community to a new level of understanding.  We have had the privilege of bringing to the forefront, important chiropractic news, that would have otherwise been lost on some inside page of the general press.  The beneficiaries of this news has been the hundreds of thousands of patients who have read this news, and the chiropractors who now have better informed practice members.

To give you an idea of just some of the news headlines that appeared in our NYK newsletter in a very timely manner, we have listed some of the headlines below.

  • Study Finds Link to Why Chiropractic Care Helps Blood Pressure
  • Self Health Perceptions Improved With Chiropractic - According to Study
  • Multiple Studies Confirm Positive Outcomes of Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Injuries
  • Chiropractors Serving as Primary Care Providers Decrease Costs - Study Shows
  • Chiropractic Helps New Mothers Produce Milk
  • Chiropractic Cuts Blood Pressure
  • Chiropractic Helps Women Avoid C-Section
  • Chiropractic Helping Kids Fight Ear Infections
  • Study Proves Chiropractic Helps Sudden and Painful Low Back Pain
  • Chiropractic Care May Help Children With Learning Disorders And Dyslexia

By the way, all the headlines above are from stories that appeared in the Now You Know patient newsletter in 2007 alone!  And there are another 38 stories whose headlines we did not list here.

Years ago, I heard a great chiropractor say, "If they knew what you knew, they would do what you do."  These words have stuck with me, and because of this the Now You Know Newsletter is dedicated to "letting them know!"  What type of news stories are your patients reading?



The Good, the Bad, and the Subluxated! - AKA - Chiropractic in the News

We review the world wide web almost every day for articles for our NYK patient newsletter. In reading hundreds of articles, there are always stories that do not make it into our patient newsletter but are of interest to us as chiropractors. Not all of these stories are good, and many of them I do not agree with, but we felt you should know about them. So if you don't have hours to search the world wide web for articles that concern us as chiropractors, just review the links below. To see the actual articles, please click on the headline links below.
