Noah: What is the Clinic Gym Hybrid model?
It’s an extension of really good health care. Chiropractors offer a great service. What I look at when somebody comes in with an injury I get them better through treatments and rehab. Then what are they left with? A lot of them feel nervous and they're worried about what they're going to do next. They want to get back to the activity that they love, but they don't know exactly what to do after you discharge them.
Most insurance companies will let you see them six times per injury. In the end what's the next step? There's a lot of people who are ending care here and somebody needs to fill in this middle ground.
Create a complete start-to-finish model for patients where great maintenance care is a good exercise program. This is the perfect way to deliver it. You're going to have some of the best trained coaches and trainers working with you that are helping you take care of those clients.
Dr. Jordan Shallow is the owner of the muscle doc he's host of RX radio. So let's start with your origin story. How did you get into chiropractic and what were you hoping to do when you got out of school and how have you been able to do that so far?
Dr. Shallow: I played sports growing up like most kids. I did track-and-field, hockey, lacrosse and swimming. With those sports came injuries. In the 12th grade I had a knee issue and my gym teacher told me to see a chiropractor. I was like, What? A chiropractor? There is nothing wrong with my neck, I don't have headaches or anything. He said “just go see him.” Within two weeks I was back on the ice.
In my first year of undergraduate studies I fell in love with lifting weights and from there began a career as a personal trainer to pay my way through school. I continued to see my chiropractor and realized; wow this guy works fairly similar to how I work, people are excited to see him, and he drives a Range Rover. I was a history and political science major the University of Windsor in Canada and I made the jump over to exercise science and public health and then from there went on to Palmer West in 2012. I graduated in 2015 and opens up my doors soon after that.
