Dr. Paul Phipps, a 1985 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, returned to the school to address this year’s senior class. His talk focused on the different paths a career in Chiropractic can take.
Dr. Phipps' career was traditional in nature to start, but as his love for the sports side of Chiropractic developed, he became more creative in his approach. He worked with some of the best sports trainers in the Indianapolis area, the Indiana Pacers and high profile business professionals. He used word of mouth and creative ideas to build his reputation and practice. Dr. Phipps stated, “All Chiropractors are problem solvers and having new creative ideas to solve problems comes as a matter of course while helping patients."
Dr. Phipps took students through several examples of how he created new opportunities for himself outside his standard practice. These examples included the invention of Stretchhorse and Comfort Motion Technologies. Stretchhorse was created to help weekend type and serious athletes warm up correctly before participation in golf, running and other types of exercise. Stretchhorse has been presented to the PGA and First Tee programs. Comfort Motion Technologies' Vehicle Seat Multi-Position Software for power seat platforms automatically changes the driver’s seat position eliminating lower back fatigue and discomfort so that they arrive at their destination relaxed and refreshed. Dr. Phipps stressed that if you have a good idea, pursue it. Follow your dreams. He then concluded the time fielding many great questions from the students.
