We’ve all had them – emails from prospective patients, asking if we can treat their unusual condition. Graves’ Disease, Hiatus Hernia, Fibromyalgia… you know the ones. And unfortunately, there are a rare few folks out there who like to trick us into saying things they can then take to our regulator.
They’re kind of like the “Chiropractic Bogeyman”, something we tell students and new graduates tales about to scare them into behaving online.
“Don’t breathe a word about managing non-MSK issues, or the Good Thinking Society will get you!”
Even though the vast majority of these emails are genuine, we need to make sure we handle them well to avoid putting ourselves at risk, without doing the real enquiries people a disservice.
P.S. Want to see me live? My next in-person event will be in Chorley, just north of Manchester in March 2022. I’m only going to run a couple of live events this year, and we’re keeping this one small and intimate. There are still a few spots left, so reserve yours now if you don’t want to miss out!
