"I prefer low force chiropractic techniques versus spinal manipulation. Some people really enjoy the aggressive cracking; however, I usually use this as a last resort for my patients."
There are many different chiropractic techniques and you will certainly not be expected to enjoy, or agree with, all of them. When you answer this question be sure to have a full understanding of the chiropractic techniques that this particular clinic specializes in. You don't want to talk your way out of the position by mentioning a core technique that they rely on.

Question 2 of 49
What is one chiropractic technique you could do without, and why?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I think I will not be fond of the paperwork need to deal with insurance companies as I have learned from previous chiropractors the difficulties they encounter with insurance companies.
2.
The billing with insurance and dealing with ignorance of people about chiropractors.
3.
The long hours of work. Most chiropractors I know work from sun up to sun down at the office and I would want to get away to see my kids play and spend time with family. But I am confident I can workout my schedule with seeing patients around my priorities in life.
4.
The thing that I would like least would be the patients who even after your try to help find that nothing has helped.
5.
I think what I will like least is that if I am out of appointment times then I won't be able to provide treatment as quickly as I would like to.
6.
I enjoy all aspects of helping people, however my only flaw is understanding money and how the whole system of finance works. I am currently taking care of this flaw through a financial elective I am taking at school.
7.
I believe I will like every aspect of it.
8.
I think I will like the first year least because it will consist of a lot of generality.
9.
As a chiropractor I feel I would least like working with moody clients.
10.
The fact that people have a tendency to bash on chirpractor's as not being real health professionals seems a bit discouraging, but I have a positive outlook.
11.
Perhaps just the noises of the bones cracking or maybe seeing people IN pain.
Question 3 of 49
Which of your post-secondary courses interested you the most?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Physiology, chiropractic clinical work.
2.
There were 3 courses that stood out to me in my university career. The first class I was surprised I liked so much, because I enrolled at the last possible second. It was a third year pharmacology course that looked at the way drugs, particularly recreational drugs affected the brain and central nervous system. I had no real exposure to recreational drugs before that class, and I found it fascinating to see what actually happens neurologically to make drugs so addicting. The second class I loved was the first neuroscience-specific course I really took at university, and it was an advanced neuroanatomy class. I was really surprised to learn how intracately interconnected the brain and body is. Finally, I have taken a music course throughout university. Music is something very dear to me, I have many family members who are professional musicians in some capacity, and music has always been a huge part of my life. I took a singing class, and actually used the professor as one of my references on my application. I found singing to be challenging in a completely different way. There was no real memorizing or fact learning, but it was incredibly stimulating. I used that class as my creative outlet throughout school, and there were some days when the only thing motivating me to get out of bed in the middle of winter was going to class to sing.
3.
I loved a course on exercise prescription where we took diseased populations and through research determined what exercise can do for them, and how they should exercise. I enjoyed exercise physiology and learning how the human body responds to exercise in lots of conditions and adaptations we can see in the body.
4.
The college course that interested me the most would have to be my anatomy lab. It allowed me to look at bones first hand as well as muscles and how everything works together nothing in isolation does what it substantially does in working together with everything else. It brought more reality to the lectures we went over in class considering we got a chance to be up close with what we learned providing us with a hands on experience.
5.
I really enjoyed anatomy. I liked learning about how everything is interconnected in the body. Before completing the course I never realized that there were so many muscles, bones, and everything else inside of our bodies.
6.
Injuries and Contraindications interested me the most. This course was actually taught by a chiropractor, and I enjoyed learning about the healing process the human body goes through. I have also gained a respect for the human body and the defense mechanisms that are put into place in order to prevent injuries from occuring.
7.
Anatomy and physiology, organic chemistry.
8.
History, psychology, physical education, and English have always interested me the most.
9.
Really it was whenever my paradigm was challenged and I could also learn about my own culture simultaneously. An example of that would be Pacifc Islander American Studies or Asian Pacific American Psych, courses like that in the humanities.
Question 4 of 49
Being a chiropractor can be very demanding and stressful at times. When you need to take a breather, or let off some steam, what do you do?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I talk to my church community and mom.
2.
My dad and my fiancé. I also have a mentoring relationship with a couple guys from church that have been awesome. I have a good support system.
3.
I first try to breakdown the problem myself and try to approach it from different angles and when I can't get a hold of resolving it I due turn to either one of my friends or a family member who can provide me with a different perspective.
4.
I typically talk to my girlfriend or roommate about personal problems.
5.
When I need counseling for personal problems, I would consult one or two people close to me like my parents, or a close friend. However, I am one for solving my own problems, and I can recognize how to treat my problems myself before asking for help.
6.
It depends on the problem. I always seek the person with experience and knowledge that pertain to the problem.
7.
A family member or close friends, its dependent on the situation.
8.
I talk with both my mother and father.
9.
I breathe. I tell myself I am hear to help others and the current stress isn't about me.
10.
I breathe. I tell myself I am hear to help others and the current stress isn't about me.

First I take 2-5 minutes to just breathe and then I mediated to clear my mind. Then later on in the day I do my work out.
Question 5 of 49
Name something you are most proud of.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I most proud of obtaining my license to be a Chiropractor. It took me a lot of hard work and dedication to receive such a calling.
2.

5.
Earning my doctorate of chiropractic.
6.
I am most proud of being able to have the opportunity to further my education, considering the society we live in today is educated and being able to consider myself an educated women is something I am truly proud of. I find that due to my parents I am where I am and have been able to do what I am able to do due to their hard work and coming to this country enduring hardship and providing for their family.
7.
One thing that I am most proud of is motivating my good friend to start attending the gym. I then helped him keep on track and make sure to keep going. I'm proud of this because it shows that I can motivate and be a leader.
8.
I am most proud of my achievement in my academic career. It takes a lot to understand what one truly loves in life, and for me, it is the love of the science of the human body, and how we can fix the human body to be pain free to accomplish daily tasks. I have come to understand multiple factors that can affect our life through not only the physical attributes, but spiritual, social, or intellectual aspects of wellness - and how all aspects of wellness can inter relate with each other. I am proud to take on helping others as a career.
9.
I am most proud of the bed I designed and my dad built because it is functional.
10.
I am proud of my master's thesis and all of the work that went into it.
11.

12.

14.
Graduating college on time and passing biomechanics. I faced a lot of personal obstacles my senior year but I kept focus and driven and did not let it stop me. If anything my hurdles drove me to do a better job.
Question 6 of 49
Why did you choose to become a chiropractor?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I met two chiropractors who graduated from Palmer and I liked them. Since they both graduated from Palmer, I trust that Palmer provides the best education on Chiropractic.
2.
I first looked into the DC program at UWS after I visited portland with my family last summer. My mom completed a masters of education through U-portland and she was completing a residency of sorts so I went on a road trip with my sister to go and visit and I fell in love with the city. It reminds me a lot of my favourite places in Edmonton and around Alberta all mixed into one beautiful city. I also looked at how well UWS students performed on board exams, and they consistently had a high pass rate on the Canadian exams as well as the American ones. Because I plan on returning to Canada this only makes sense.
3.
I know Palmer from Dr Lendon Suggs and Dr Baines. Both Phenomenal Chiropractors that went through the program and really impress me with how they have a healing touch and the skills they need to treat. My brother Dr Matt Cline went through Palmer Chiropractic Florida and he told me it was very hands on learning and though it was the most challenging learning he had ever done, that he was well equipped to buy a practice. Also, since I have lived in the area I will be able to bring in patients quite easily when it comes time for the supervised clinical setting.
4.
I chose your program because of the evidence based approach that you take. I currently have a friend at the program and they highly recommenced that school.
5.
I chose this program because I enjoy helping people, and I would like to gain the knowledge to treat people through the skills learned in this profession.
6.
I attended an open campus event for a different school with a friend and knew that this field was for me.. After doing much research, I concluded that this school has the best fit program for me and I enjoy the electives that have to do with women's health. I have also really wanted to move to Portland for a while now.
Question 7 of 49
Discuss National Health Insurance and how it has affected your patients and practice.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Chiropractic care is backed by scientific literature, which can be helpful in getting insurance to pay for part or all of this treatment. I do know that many people cannot afford alternative medicine, but believe in helping people, so when it comes time to cross that bridge, I am hoping that myself and potential colleagues will be able to figure something out to be able to make this treatment affordable to all.

User-Submitted Answers
1.
I feel that being knowledgeable while also being personable is a good way to keep clients coming back. I also believe that chiropractors who take time to get to know clients as well as other chiropractors in the field will thrive.
Question 10 of 49
