David Orlando, D.C., of Innovative Health and Wellness in Woodstock, Ga., has more than 20 years of experience in chiropractic.
He recently took a few minutes to share one of his favorite patient success stories and offer advice to today’s Chiro students. Here’s what he had to say:
Tell us about your practice. What sets you apart from other practitioners in your area?
Our practice is different in other practices in that we integrate the best worlds of medicine and chiropractic under one roof.
Our mission statement is “to transform peoples lives one person at a time so that they may have the absolute highest quality of life possible.”
We’d like to talk about a patient success story you’re especially proud of. Tell us about the patient. How did they learn about your practice?
A male aged 59 years old comes in with unrelenting neck pain that radiates down his left arm. He came into our office from “Yelp and all of our reviews.”
At the initial visit he was unable to lay face up without excruciating pain especially under his left arm and cervical spine.
We treated him on a regular schedule of chiropractic adjustments, disc decompressive therapy and appropriate physiotherapy.
Two months later he is completely symptom free and ecstatic. He was so impacted that he hired a personal trainer and starting eating better and lost over 30 pounds. It has drastically changed his life
What advice would you give Chiro students today? For instance looking back at your own career is there anything you would do differently?
I would tell all chiro students to learn about running a business, learn all you can while in school and go to work for a successful chiropractor to learn the real ins and outs of running a business.
What is the funniest thing, if any, that has happened to you in practice?
One of the funniest thing that ever happened to me was I was adjusting a patient and I fell on top of them accidentally.
Anything (that you care to admit) that you would never do again?
I would never get into ANY type of multilevel marketing company ever again – I did early on and NEVER again. Stick to what you love to do.
