The Top 3 Reasons You Need a Substitute Chiropractor

Smart chiropractors use leverage in their practice to accelerate their growth, stabilize their collections, and find opportunities to generate revenue. In Europe, Canada, and Australia, it’s common for chiropractors to use locum or coverage doctors for these exact reasons. Here in the United States, it’s less common- until now! Let’s take a look at the top 3 reasons you need to consider a substitute chiropractor in your practice. 

1. Substitute Chiropractor for Continuing Education

Death, taxes, and continuing education- the three absolutes in every chiropractor’s life. Each year you probably take a weekend (or two) and head to some mid-level hotel, eat buffet food, and sit through continuing education classes you can’t believe your state association has approved. Hey, I don’t like it either, but it’s part of being a chiropractor. 

For most docs, these weekends are a loss. You probably lose revenue on Friday by closing down; any chance of seeing patients on Saturday is extinguished, and forget about those last-minute new patients who are looking to get started. That’s why using a substitute chiropractor to fill in on your continuing education weekends is a great idea. They can keep your revenue pumping, keep your care consistent, and in many cases, pay for your continuing education weekend while you are away enjoying the good life. 

2. Substitute Chiropractor for Unexpected Injuries

Let’s face it; chiropractic is a physical profession. Even if you are diligent about your health and get adjusted regularly, you’re likely to suffer an injury eventually. Adjusting 100’s of people every week for years comes with its own set of challenges, and usually, the chiropractor’s health is the trade-off. Using a substitute chiropractor when you suffer an unexpected injury is not a luxury but often a necessity. 

There are very few chiropractors that can take weeks, or in some cases, months out of their practice. Last year we worked with a few chiropractors who had injuries ranging from stroke to the effects of auto accidents. Having a trustworthy and reputable company to work with to find a substitute chiropractor is critical if you’ve suffered an injury like this. We’re proud to help doctors stay profitable and keep their livelihoods up and running as they recover from any range of injuries- short-term to long-term. 

Substitute Chiropractor for Paternity and Maternity Leave

Adding a new member to your family is stressful, even under the best of circumstances. Having a substitute chiropractor ready to fill in will help you enjoy the experience without stressing out the whole time. 

For many female chiropractors, it’s challenging to balance when they should leave the practice before birth and when they should come back. Using a substitute chiropractor can make those transitions much easier and keep your practice profitable while you are away. For male chiropractors, it’s not uncommon for the birth of a child to mean a whole day out of the office! Far too many chiropractors go back to practice quickly not only because they love their patients but also because they need money. Having a substitute chiropractor will ensure that you can take as much time off as you need, your patients will be taken care of, and you’ll have revenue coming in.
