Podiatrists breaking into the Chiropractor market

Podiatrists breaking into the Chiropractor market

https://thenationalchiro.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/21-NATIONAL-showguide-FINAL.pdf

This Chiropractic meeting, The National, is taking place in Orlando, Florida right now.

It is the largest Chiropractic meeting in the country.

Comparing it to Podiatry it draws a way way way larger attendance then, 

The Western Foot and Ankle Conference, The Chicago Mid-West meeting and the NYSPMA clinical Conference put together.

This is a FACT !

But here is what concerns me.   Powersteps is a Bronze sponsor.

Powersteps is piggy backing off their APMA Seal of Acceptance to make headway and expand their customer base into Chiropractic.

Dr. Alan Bass is the new medical advisor for Powersteps.  I wonder if Dr. Bass knows Powersteps is attending this Chiropractic trade show ?

Perhaps, Powersteps has already hired their own D.C. to be their medical director of Chiropractic.

I have another concern.  DocShop Pro is also exhibiting.  DocShop Pro is owned by Dr. John Guilliana and Dr. Jeffrey Frederick.

I’ll bet anyone in podiatry a millions dollars that the APMA BOD and TALAR have no idea about this meeting.  NONE !

In fact if Patrick DeHeer new he would have sent his son, Joseph, (who runs Thrive Orthopedics on his behalf) to sell

carbon fiber AFO’s to Chiro’s.  And let’s not forget about IQ Medical.  All Chiropractors see Equinus daily in their patients.

Here are the links for the APMA BOD and TALAR to see the chiropractic supplies sold by DocShop Pro:

https://www.docshoppro.com/chiropractic

https://www.docshoppro.com/chiropractic/dme

Now I wonder……………………..

Do all of the APMA past presidents, the current APMA BOD (ie. the TALAR investors) wear blinders.

They are all fooled by Powersteps and the owners of DocShop Pro.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE CALL IN A PSYCHIATRIST?! BARRY BLOCKHEAD AND HIS BUDDY LEONARD LEVY, both well into their 7th decade, are ‘around the bend’. BLOCK, who makes a lot of money from arch support advertising, tells you to read about HOW TO BUILD A THRIVING (THAT’S THRIVING!) ORTHOTIC PRACTICE. First of all, thriving should read PROFITABLE. Second, ‘practice’ should read BUSINESS. Cardiologist don’t build a THRIVING heart business by selling more ekg’s. Block PROVES PODIATRY IS A NON MEDICAL BUSINESS. He goes on to carry the water for the BIG PODIATRY LIE THAT THE MD ORTHOPODS CAN’T STOP A BUNION… Read more »

What Is There Left to Say?

There it is, for all the world to see: the shame, the hustle, and the incredible stupidity of organized podiatry.

Excluding ancillary health providers like: chiropractors, optometrists, audiologists, naturopaths, and podiatrists.

Insurance giant. 2021. Nice. What a bleeping bad joke. Who ever paid and keeps paying podiatric “dues” and “fees” must be mentally ill. Like paying your abuser.

Maybe they’re too busy scarfing down hot dogs, burgers, and corn syrup–and clipping toenails.

I don’t know if there’s anyone to read these opinions because this site seems to have been dead for several days. Oh well, unless and until is disappears, (to Barry Block’s glee) we’ll continue to comment on the ONE SIDED NON CRITICAL BANNING AND CENSORING THAT YOU FIND IN BLOCK’S PM NEWS. Will Block question the WHITE COAT INDOCTRINATION CEREMONY? It’s the beginning of the brainwashing telling podliwogs they’re “just like” DOCTORS. In my day, before computers or criticisms, podiatry was thought to be a legitimate specialty. Amazingly, even with all the TRUTH OUT THERE ABOUT WHAT PODIATRY REALLY IS,… Read more »

Just like Mr. Podiatrist? “Med Page” listed top Medical schools (they’re different than podiatry school, ya know). NY Univ’s. average student that was admitted had a 4.0! with a 522 MCAT. HARVARD (which was rated #1) because of research and funding GPA was 3.9 MCAT 520 . Only 3.5% that applied were admitted. I could go on with the top 10 but ,suffice it to say, that the lowest GPA was 3.8 with a MCAT OF 519. BTW, John’s Hopkins was GPA 4.0, MCAT 521. They were #1 for family practice. Those MD’s don’t know noth’n about the foot though!… Read more »

Man, didn’t I tell you BARRY BLOCK AND PM NEWS WERE BAD FOR PODIATRY? Look at todays drivel. NY pod and BLACK TOENAILS. Tips on buying dress shoes argued by Shavelson with his C Ped certificate outshining his wtf certificate. Kesselman’s exquisite dissection of the MEDICAL MANUAL finding a slippery way to GET MONEY from your tax dollars. Sneaky, slippery, mercenary. That’s how 20,000+ (allegedly) see podiatry. Who knows how many MD’s, lawyers, and hospital professionals see podiatry as Barry Block portrays it.? Ads selling stuff to pods to sell to their customers. Don’t tell me that NYC greed wasn’t… Read more »

So, here’s a word that I think should be used more often in podiatric politics. The word is “MOUNTEBANK”. My dictionary defines a MOUNTEBANK as: ANY BOASTFUL AND FALSE PRETENDER, VENDS QUACK MEDICINES, ATTRACKS AN AUDIENCE BY TRICKS AND STORIES !(sound familiar Barry Block?) ONE WHO BOASTS OF SKILL IN CURING DISEASE. See where this is going and it’s usefulness in describing lifers and podiatric politics? There’s a lot of podiatry in that definition. Thought some of you might find this interesting.

AS AN EAGLE SCOUT I KNOW THE SCOUT MOTTO IS “BE PREPARED”. Well, BE PREPARED for stories of glory and horror of technicians at the fore foot (I mean fore front) of the FLOODING SITUATION IN NEW YAWK. Pods saving lives. Pods dealing with fungus infections from flooding. It’s just a matter of time before the CRISIS IS USED FOR AN ADVERTISING ADVANTAGE. Perhaps ORTHOTICS FOR RUBBER BOOTS. Never let a crisis pass when you can turn it into MONEY. That’s the podiatry way, hey, hey, hey.

Let me make this simple for foot technicians to understand. The more you support Barry Block’s advertisers THE MORE YOU HURT YOURSELF. WHY? Follow this: Without advertisers Barry Block goes out of business. When Barry Block goes out of business there are NO MORE EMBARASSING MINIMAL-NON MEDICAL references about podiatry. SHOES, ORTHOTICS, AND MONEY ARE AGAIN THE FEATURED ARTICLES. PODIATRY IS ALL SHOES WITH BARRY BLOCK. SHOE PICTURES, SHOE BILLING, ARCH SUPPORT ADS. KIDS WEARING TIGHT SHOES. “BUSTLE” MAGAZINE (WHAT?) ADS BY REGULAR ADVERTISER, PODETTE SPICHAL about bunions AND SHOES. Money collecting questions about SHOE INSERTS IN DIABETIC SHOES. BENJAMIN… Read more »

Sept FIRST! Time marches on but podiatry doesn’t. Choose shoes for comfort not looks says the “academics” of the foot. Oh who cares about comfort? Uh? Everybody. A story about a ballet dancer that made the writer become a podiatric SURGEON. NOT PODIATRIST MIND YOU BUT A SURGEON. NO ONE WANTS TO ADMIT THEY’RE A FOOTDOCTOR. Not even the biggest baddest most flunking board…the ACFAS.. Btw, how do they account for their name when so many states FORBID ANKLE SX BY A WTF? Some States, like NY, require a SPECIAL NOTE (an adendum) to you wtf license to touch an… Read more »

Come on. How many examples do we need to show that PODIATRY IS A SPRING BOARD FOR MONEY MAKING? There is NO HONOR in those who went into podiatry for the BUSINESS OF IT. Because there is so little medicine in podiatry, and so little serious responsibility, podiatry lends itself easily to avarice and lies. I think it would be interesting to see if there’s any correlation to GPA in foot school and/or undergrad characteristics in those that are the most financially prominent in podiatry. I can’t see anyone who was PRIMARILY interested in medicine and science to annex that… Read more »
