Chiropractic associate wanted for busy sports injury oriented practice in Portland, ME. We work with a good mix of athletes, including climbers, triathletes, cross-fitters, nordic skiers, power-lifters, and especially runners, as well as regular active folks. At least half of the injuries we typically see are extremity related: Achilles, ITBand, hips, shoulders, etc. in addition to the normal back and neck pain.
Our focus is entirely injury, pain, and results oriented and less so on maintenance care which means we have a lot of new patients. Looking for a doc with a similar mindset who enjoys problem-solving the root cause of injuries and trying for a true fix. We have a healthy mix of referral sources from local medical practices (including a sports medicine department), physical therapists, personal trainers, coaches, and other patients.
We’ve developed some unique and effective protocols utilizing a mix of diversified adjusting, ART, IASTM, and rehab. New doc will be trained in these protocols. Owner is initiating a clinical trial at a local university in this regard, and would like to devote an extra day a week to this and subsequent publishing efforts.
Currently practice consists of owner and associate, both of whom have full schedules. Qualified candidate will possess excellent diversified adjusting skills and should have at least one ART certification or be willing to attend a seminar. The rest of what we do can be trained, and of course looking forward to whatever unique talents you can bring. New doc will benefit from overflow (we are currently losing new patients due to lack of schedule space) but will also be expected to assist in some marketing to establish his or her numbers. This would take the form mainly of attending some local athletic events. However we have found with our results-focused approach that once a doc is trained and established very little further marketing efforts are needed beyond communicating with other providers, trainers, coaches, etc. about their referrals.
Portland is a fun town with lots of great food and culture and also outdoor opportunities: local beaches and trails, and mountains within two hours. Also a great place to raise a family. Open to new grads but we’ve also had good luck with docs with some experience who would like to just see patients without the hassle of running a practice.
