In Memory of Helen McPike Brown, D.C.H.

Helen McPike BrownIt is with sadness that Sherman Colleges shares the news of the passing of Helen McPike Brown on August 19, 2016. Her husband of more than 70 years, Gordon Brown, D.C., was near her side at the time, in their home on the Sherman College campus in Spartanburg, SC.

“Helen Brown was a passionate supporter of chiropractic throughout her life,” said Sherman College President Edwin Cordero, D.C. “She gave to chiropractic and to Sherman College unselfishly, and she had a true love for the profession. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family; she will be dearly missed.”

Though not a chiropractor herself, Mrs. Brown had a rare appreciation of chiropractic philosophy and a unique commitment to sharing chiropractic with others. Originally from Davenport, IA, she was a talented artist who has donated many of her works to the college both to help decorate the campus and as assets the college can use to raise funds. She was known for her interest in providing chiropractic art to doctors of chiropractic for their homes and offices. Helen was past president of the Women’s Auxiliary of the International Chiropractors Association (WAICA); her father (Dr. Ray McPike, an enthusiastic early supporter of Sherman College), her husband, and one of her two sons have all been chiropractors.

Helen and her husband, Gordon Brown, who married in 1944, donated their home in Sedona, AZ, to Sherman College in 1999; funds from the donation were used to construct the Brown House and Museum on campus. The structure serves as an on-campus residence for the couple, and the lower level houses a museum with the college’s historical chiropractic holdings. The Browns’ donation is the largest gift in kind in the history of the college.

The couple moved into the Brown House and Chiropractic Museum in October 2000. At the time, Helen shared their excitement about joining the Sherman College family. “Our primary objective in making this donation was not only to give the college the bulk of our estate, but also to be around people who share our philosophy,” she explained at the time. “We’ve lived nothing but the chiropractic philosophy our entire lives.”

Gordon Brown, is a 1942 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic; he practiced in Louisville, KY, for two years and in Logansport, IN, for 19 years and was instrumental in getting the laws changed in Indiana to allow chiropractors to practice.

Both Gordon and Helen have supported and contributed generously to Sherman College in many ways over the years. In 1993, they became members of the Board of Regents, and in 1997, they made a generous estate commitment to the Sherman College Endowment Trust. Sherman College presented the couple with honorary Doctor of Chiropractic Humanities degrees in 2001, and they received the prestigious Thom and Betty Gelardi Service Award in 2013.

The campus visit experience is a valuable tool for prospective students when deciding on the right chiropractic college. In fact, since January 2014, more than 80 percent of enrolled students visited campus prior to enrolling. Campus visits are offered Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and are limited to four prospective students to ensure a personalized experience.

Beginning in August, prospective students coming to Sherman College for a campus visit are being treated to an enhanced VIP experience. Upon arriving, they receive a special VIP badge clearly identifying them as DCs2B so everyone on campus can give them a warm welcome. A personalized brochure features the agenda for the visit and provides information about the college and the Spartanburg area.

Next, prospective student visitors meet with staff members to review the nuts and bolts of the admission and financial aid process. Our highly trained Student Ambassadors take them on a tour of campus, which is followed by a visit with President Edwin Cordero, D.C., or Executive Vice President Neil Cohen, D.C., and lunch at The Farmer’s Table Café.

Campus visitors won’t go home empty handed. Each prospective student receives a one-of-a-kind t-shirt and tumbler to commemorate their visit to Sherman. Finally, each prospective student is given the opportunity to provide feedback on their visit via online survey so the department can continue to improve this critical part of the decision-making process for prospective students.

Sherman College offers another option to experience Sherman College: Showcase Sherman Weekend, our quarterly open house for prospective students and college advisors. This event allows prospective students to be immersed in the campus culture for two days, learning about the chiropractic program, meeting faculty, staff and students as well as touring downtown Spartanburg. The college began hosting Showcase Sherman Weekends in July 2014, and the event has grown considerably since then.

Introduction to the Nervous System

Intro to the Nervous System Before Pursuing a Chiropractic Degree

Introduction to the Nervous System

The purpose of chiropractic care is to help remove interference from the nervous system so the body can perform optimally. As the nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the human body (as it does with other animals), a comprehensive understanding of how it works is an essential component of chiropractic training.

The nervous system is a complex network of nerves and cells that transmit signals from the brain and spinal cord to different parts of the body. Chiropractors examine the body as a whole while assessing nervous system function and potential compromises, or subluxations, in the spine. Students pursuing a chiropractic degree develop a thorough knowledge of human anatomy and neuroanatomy in extensive lecture and laboratory courses, in addition to hands-on courses in chiropractic adjusting techniques.

Here is a helpful introduction to how the nervous system works.

Central Nervous System‘s Role in Chiropractic Science

In vertebrate species, the nervous system consists of the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The major parts of the CNS are the brain and spinal cord, the body’s control center where sensory information is received, processed and acted upon. There are approximately 100 billion neurons in the brain’s gray matter, controlling both higher mental functions (consciousness, memory, voluntary actions) and lower body functions (respiration, digestion, heart rate, etc).

Introduction to the Nervous System

The spinal cord is a long, thin and tubular mass of bundled neurons extending from the brain, comprised of 31 segments, each containing a pair of spinal nerves. Students of chiropractic science understand that these are some of our most important peripheral nerves, acting as on- and off-ramps from the spinal cord to relay nerve impulses throughout the body and integrating reflexes to stimuli.

Peripheral Nervous System in Chiropractic Science

The smallest units in the nervous system are neurons, which are specialized cells that send signals in the form of electrochemical impulses rapidly and precisely to other cells. Long fibers called axons in the peripheral nervous system can form neural circuits and networks that inform our behavior and perception of the world. The PNS consists of somatic nerves that mediate voluntary movement, and the autonomic nervous system, which functions without conscious effort.

Introduction to the Nervous System

Nerves in the somatic system connect the brain and spinal cord with muscles and the skin’s sensory receptors. The autonomic system is further subdivided into the sympathetic, parasympathetic and enteric systems. The sympathetic division responds to stress, emotion, and exercise with changes in respiration, heart rate, stress hormones, and digestion. The parasympathetic works to return these functions to equilibrium when the body is at rest. The enteric nervous system works mostly independently to regulate digestion and function of the digestive organs.

Applying Knowledge of the Nervous System

Correcting and improving the nervous system’s function through regular chiropractic care has been shown to improve function, but more than that, because all body function is controlled by the nervous system, adjustments made throughout your chiropractic career can result in better overall health and wellness. This is because all of the body’s organs, systems, muscles and other tissues require proper nerve flow for them to function as intended. Subluxations in the spine inhibit the central nervous system’s ability to transmit signals to affected areas, which can create imbalances and functional problems elsewhere in the body. Chiropractic adjustments help correct subluxations so the body can function at its best.

 3 REASONS WHY THE PROFESSION IS SO REWARDING

With growing demand for preventative and non-invasive health care, it’s a great time to embark upon a rewarding chiropractic career. There are few more satisfying experiences than transforming a patient’s life by helping to restore their body’s optimal functionality, and chiropractors can achieve this through completely natural methods. Chiropractors enjoy the freedom to establish their own practices and become respected leaders in their communities.

In a recent listing of professions with the best job security from MarketWatch, chiropractors were ranked number one, with the lowest unemployment figure among all occupations reviewed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, chiropractors also enjoy high earnings potential and strong projected growth in demand. As education about the benefits chiropractic expands, Chiropractic’s more holistic approach to health is being embraced by a growing variety of potential workplaces, including fitness and sports centers, hospitals and wellness clinics.

So why is job satisfaction so high among doctors of chiropractic? Here are some of the biggest reasons why it is such a rewarding career choice.

1. You Can Make a Real Difference as a Doctor of Chiropractic

One of the most powerful motivations for entering the chiropractic profession is to make a difference in your community by improving patients’ well-being. Chiropractors address the root causes of health issues by removing interference—or subluxations—in the spine, helping to restore proper nerve flow and optimal performance. The body becomes better able to heal itself when the nervous system functions normally, resulting in improved overall health and well-being.

 3 REASONS WHY THE PROFESSION IS SO REWARDINGChiropractors help patients live better lives without the use of surgery or invasive drugs. Doctors of chiropractic like Sherman College graduate Tapiwa Chiwawa appreciate the ability to change lives. He says, “I always pictured myself in a setting where if the only tools I would have at hand would be my hands, I would still be able to help people.”

2. You Can Set your own Working Conditions with your Chiropractic Degree

Many graduates with a degree from an accredited chiropractic program choose to start their own practice—it’s estimated that about one-third of chiropractors are self-employed. These chiropractors enjoy the freedom to establish their own offices and associated working conditions, setting their own flexible hours and business practices wherever they decide to work.

 3 REASONS WHY THE PROFESSION IS SO REWARDINGBeing your own boss as a business owner often results in greater job satisfaction because you have the opportunity to expand your practice however you see fit. With a positive work environment and one of the least stressful jobs—according to employment website CareerCast—it’s little surprise that the profession is ranked highly in terms of quality of life.

3. You Can Enjoy Growing Demand as a Doctor of Chiropractic

Employment for chiropractors is growing faster than the average for all occupations, and with the “gray tsunami” of aging baby boomers increasingly seeking non-invasive alternative health care, demand for chiropractors should continue to rise. Chiropractic care is the third largest healthcare profession in the nation, according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

A growing trend for specialization, focusing chiropractic on demographics such as for pregnant mothers, children and even animals, is also widening the potential patient base. Another exciting career opportunity for a doctor of chiropractic is serving corporate clients seeking occupational health for their employees.

Patient-Centered Care

Why Patient-Centered Care is an Important Part of Any Chiropractic Career

patient-centered care

If you’re passionate about healthcare, you might have come across the term “patient-centered care.” There’s a good reason for this: as more and more healthcare professionals discover the benefits of putting patients first, the patient-centered approach has become ever more popular. While the focus on patient-centered care might be new in some healthcare fields, it certainly isn’t for chiropractic. In fact, patient-centered care has been an important part of chiropractic since the very beginnings of the profession. Here’s a closer look at why putting the patient first has always been important to chiropractic, and how adopting a patient-centered approach can help you make a difference in your community once you begin your career.

What is Patient-Centered Care?

Before delving into why patient-centered care is important to chiropractic, you’ll need to understand what patient-centered care is. Put simply, patient-centered care is about putting the patient first. It’s about informing the patient and including them in every decision that is made regarding their health.

When D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment on Harvey Lillard, he demonstrated a patient-centered approach. D. D. Palmer carefully listened to Lillard’s concerns and history explained how a precise adjustment could benefit him and ensured that Lillard was informed and included throughout the entire process. There’s a reason why chiropractic history remembers both the patient and the chiropractor that took part in the very first adjustment!

Ensures that Patients are Informed

Informing patients about the benefits of chiropractic is one of the first steps in adopting a patient-centered approach. That’s because only informed patients can confidently make decisions about their healthcare. To ensure that patients understand chiropractic concepts like subluxation and the body’s innate intelligence, budding doctors learn the best techniques for informing patients as they complete their chiropractic training.

patient-centered care

Empower Patients

For many patients, healthcare choices can sometimes seem intimidating. They might not understand why regular preventative care is important, or they may feel nervous about putting their health in the hands of another. But by informing patients and making them a central part of the decision-making process, chiropractors help to ease these concerns. Instead of being passive, their patients are empowered to take control of their healthcare.

Improves Retention Rates

When patients are informed and feel empowered about their health care, they’re more likely to understand the importance of regular chiropractic care. In addition, informing your patients and carefully listening to their concerns can help you build a close rapport. As a result, your patients will be more likely to return to your practice for continued care and to refer new patients to you. Throughout your chiropractic career, you’ll be able to see first-hand how a patient-centered approach leads to high retention rates!

patient-centered care

Often Leads to Better Healthcare

Above all else, the reason why chiropractors adopt a patient-centered approach is that it ultimately leads to better healthcare. As a chiropractor, nothing will feel more satisfying than knowing that you are making a real difference in the lives of your patients.

Transforming Chiropractic Education at Sherman: iPad Rollout Begins

isherman logoSherman College students taking fourth-quarter classes learned how fun it can be to serve as the “test group” this summer as they each received a college-issued iPad during the first installment Sherman Students setting up their iPadsof the iSherman initiative.

Student Lauren Golden was one of the first to receive her iPad. She admitted she thought the program was too good to be true when she first heard about it. “With these (iPads), we have all the lessons, videos and teachers’ materials right at our fingertips,” she told the local newspaper in an interview. “The fact they trust us and gave us these iPads is an honor for us.”

The Apple iPads students are given contain everything from syllabi to e-books, at no additional tuition cost. Over the course

of the next twelve months, every student on campus will be issued an iPad. Sherman is the only chiropractic college with this level of technological integration for its students.

“It provides students with the opportunity to transition away from some of the typical lecture-focused instruction to focus more on the application of the course content,” said Director of Teaching and Learning, Billie Harrington, Ph.D. “That improves the learning experience for all of our students.”

Sherman College faculty members were the first to implement iPad technology in their classrooms almost two years ago, and it’s having a tremendous impact on teaching and learning. The iSherman initiative is designed transform chiropractic education with a teaching and learning environment that is forward-thinking in its approach and that leads the field.

Professor of Clinical Sciences Cindy Gibbon, M.T., D.C., said the more professors can provide new ways of learning, the better students perform. “In this day and age, students are used to high-tech learning,” she said. “The regular old textbook and notes don’t cut it. They have to be engaged.”

What Does a Doctor of Chiropractic Do

Doctors of chiropractic have many different reasons for entering the profession. Some are drawn to its natural and non-invasive approach to health that avoids the use of drugs or surgery, while others may be excited to help patients work toward optimal performance and improve their lives in profound and unexpected ways.

With a chiropractic education, graduates can become community leaders with their own chiropractic practices, pursue careers focused on advancing the field through research or education, choose to work with wellness centers, sports teams, or fitness facilities, or pursue other exciting opportunities. A chiropractor’s day-to-day duties could vary significantly depending on their place of employment (or self-employment!), but they all pay particular attention to the spine and how compromises—or subluxations—interfere with the body’s ability to heal and function optimally.

How Chiropractors Assess a Patient’s Health

With a holistic approach to patient health, chiropractors help prevent and correct interferences to proper nerve function by focusing on the spine’s role in the nervous system. During a new patient’s initial consultation, the chiropractor will follow a standard routine, conducting a thorough interview and assessment to determine medical history. Accurate, discreet and confidential record-keeping is also an essential part of the profession.

Analyzing the Patient’s Spine and Nervous System Function

A visit with a doctor of chiropractic will usually begin with a routine physical exam before focusing on the analysis of the spine. The doctor’s chiropractic education could suggest related areas of the neck or back to analyze since subluxations in one part of the spine can often have an impact elsewhere.

What Does a Doctor of Chiropractic DoChiropractors often use digital x-ray technology and other diagnostic imaging procedures to confirm misalignments, study the anatomical condition, and identify anomalies in bone or soft tissue structure. Throughout their analyses of musculoskeletal and nervous system function, doctors of chiropractic inspect the patient’s posture, muscle strength, and range of movement to prepare for making specific clinical adjustments.

How a Doctor of Chiropractic Makes Adjustments to Remove Spinal Interference

Adjusting the spine to help correct subluxations and restore optimal alignment and nerve flow is a specialized process that a doctor of chiropractic learns through years of education. During an adjustment, the chiropractor will specifically and gently apply directed pressure to help moving vertebrae into their proper position.

What You Might Not Know About the History of Chiropractic Training

chiropractic training

Hippocrates declared, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.” Yet, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that the first chiropractic adjustment was performed, by Daniel David (D.D.) Palmer, in Davenport, Iowa.

The science, art, and philosophy of chiropractic have advanced to where it is seen as an important part of healthcare. Chiropractic has ranked as one of the best career options available and an interest in its non-invasive, holistic benefits has surged.

Here are a few things that you may not already know about chiropractic history.

Chiropractic Founder D.D. Palmer Changed the Future of Health Care

The state of healthcare was much different in the 1890s than today, with patients and practitioners having a limited understanding of health care. The second industrial revolution brought a renewed emphasis on innovation and creativity.

The legendary story of D.D. Palmer healing his janitor’s hearing problems in 1895 by realigning a vertebra, wasn’t the only key factor in the profession’s history. Palmer’s knowledge of the spine’s connectivity to all body systems led him to reason that adjustment of vertebral subluxation could help overall with health. A vertebral subluxation is a condition when a vertebra is out of alignment.

History of Chiropractic Training

Before formalizing his discovery, Palmer sought further evidence that adjusting subluxation could result in health benefits. He recalled that one patient’s case of heart trouble had not been improving and found a displaced vertebra pressing against the nerves that connected to the heart. An adjustment produced positive results.

“I began to reason if two diseases, so dissimilar as deafness and heart trouble, came from impingement, a pressure on nerves, were not other diseases due to a similar cause?” stated Palmer in his text, The Science, Art, and Philosophy of Chiropractic (1910).This began the science (knowledge) and art (adjusting) of Chiropractic.

Recent studies indicate that chiropractic indeed supports the cardiovascular system by reducing heart rate and lowering blood pressure and anxiety levels. Graduates from an accredited chiropractic program understand that chiropractic care provides a valuable contribution to health and allows the body to self-heal and work at its best.

The Palmers’ Contributions to Chiropractic Training Extend Beyond D.D. and B.J.

After these early successes, D.D. Palmer soon created a school to teach others his methods. Among the first graduates was his son, B.J., who assumed the responsibility of the school within a decade and went on to contribute extensive research and innovation to the burgeoning profession as it expanded throughout the country.

A guiding influence on B.J.’s life was his wife, Mabel Heath Palmer, who became a doctor of chiropractic in 1905. Known as the “first lady of chiropractic,” she was a valued advisor to her husband on all aspects of chiropractic. Mabel even instructed at the Palmer School of Chiropractic for more than 30 years.

D.D., known as the Founder, B.J. as the Developer of chiropractic, and B.J. and Mabel’s son, David, known as the Educator. The grandson of Chiropractic’s founder became president of the school in 1961, modernizing the school, establishing its non-profit status, and organizing its international alumni association over the course of his career. Chiropractic began as a family business!

Chiropractic pioneers, the Palmers and Dr. Lyle Sherman, namesake of Sherman College of Chiropractic, developed many of the foundational principles that students use in daily study and practice. Research continues to confirm that chiropractic’s preventative and natural approach can help patients function closer to their optimal capacity in surprising and fascinating ways.
