It’s Easy to Have Chiropractor2U Come to You

Louisville chiropractor Dr. Todd Black discussed how Chiropractor2U got started and how so many people are learning how easy it is to have a licensed Chiropractor come to you.  This is the transcript of an interview on Wave Listens Live TV broadcast.  You can watch the entire interview at the bottom of this page.

Interview Transcript:

John Ramsey:

So you’ve been in an accident, maybe your back’s bothering you or your neck is bothering you and you’re going, you know what? I really need to see a professional chiropractor like Dr. Todd Black. But you go, I don’t want to commute back and forth, I don’t feel well enough to do so. So necessity is the mother of invention and he, Dr. Todd Black has got your back. Dr. Black, welcome back to the show.

Dr. Todd Black:

Good to see you, John.

John Ramsey:

You’ve allowed me to call you Todd, is that okay?

Dr. Todd Black:

Of course. Dr. Todd, Todd, whatever.

John Ramsey:

Alrighty. All right. Okay. So Dr. Todd. Okay, let’s start. First of all, I said necessity is the mother invention. I’m surprised more people don’t do this, but there is a lot of concierge services now that have been created. So tell me about how you came up with your concept.

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, it all started just in chiropractic school. I won a portable table, which is what I use now; tables that I can easily fold up and put in my bus that comes to people or bring into their living room or family room or kitchen and unfold and then just work on them, just like they were in a doctor’s office. So I came up with the portable table way back in chiropractic school and I thought, I’m going to get a table, I’m going to throw it in the back of a Ferrari, I’m going to drive around in California, work on movie stars, and instead I came to Louisville.

John Ramsey:

Okay, welcome.

Dr. Todd Black:

And now I’m driving around working on people that are just as great as movie stars.

John Ramsey:

So now I think a lot of times now you said movie stars there and I would think okay, Chiropractor2U, is it more expensive than going to an office?

Dr. Todd Black:

No, it’s not. I actually think that doctors make enough money already and so I basically use the same fee schedule for at-home care and mobile care that I do in my office, which is on 2623 West Broadway in the West End, across from the Lyles Mall where we take Anthem Blue Cross insurance, and also we take Passport there in addition to the motor vehicle accident cases that we do a lot of there.

John Ramsey:

Okay. So I mentioned that someone may not be able to or feel like or have the inability to be able to commute to an office, so you come to them. So there are other reasons though too. I mean, like some people, I mean, nowadays work schedules and all that. Talk about that. It’s not just people who are incapacitated, it’s people who say, I’m busy. Right?

Dr. Todd Black:

Exactly. I was working in an office and I would work there nine to five or six or seven, whatever, and then I would have people that would not make their appointments and then I would just ask them, what happened? Why didn’t you make it? And invariably they had a good reason. They would say, well, I had to work till six that night because they were in construction or something like that. Or they would say, I have children that I had to pick up right after school and I can’t get to the doctor’s office before that, or something to that effect. And in fact, one person I had, they were so busy Christmas shopping and taking care of relatives that they just practically were crying just to try to keep up with their rehabilitation schedule. And when I saw all that going on, I was like, there’s got to be a better way. And I just decided, hey, I could take it to them and started doing it. Like I said, I would just have a table in my car and take it to people’s houses and I did that for a few years. And then I decided to create this shuttle bus that had been remodeled to look like an office on the inside.

John Ramsey:

Nice.

Dr. Todd Black:

And with electricity and all that kind of stuff.

John Ramsey:

Yeah. I think it’s important to point out that this doesn’t mean you get lesser care. If you come to them, you have all the necessary equipment, right? It’s all available there in your van.

Dr. Todd Black:

Yes. Chiropractic actually means hands. With hands. Chiro, hands. And so almost everything that a chiropractor needs to do can be done with the hands. And some chiropractors will tell you it’s better when you’re using your hands instead of using a machine. I was working for a doctor one time and I was afraid some machine was going to put us out of business. He said, doc, these hands. Nothing can replace these hands!

John Ramsey:

Yeah. Well, you can feel.

Dr. Todd Black:

Yeah, exactly.

John Ramsey:

And I agree. And then when you’re talking to someone also you can feel areas that a machine can’t feel. It makes sense to me. I can understand that. Okay, so here’s the question maybe a lot of folks are thinking about who have not been to a chiropractor. Does it hurt?

Dr. Todd Black:

Oh, it shouldn’t hurt. Okay? First of all, you’re already hurt if you’ve been in car accidents, so the last thing you need is to get feeling worse. Correct. So what you need to do as a chiropractor is basically start where people are. When people are, I call them fresh when they’ve just had an accident. So when they’re fresh, you take it easy on people and you kind of get to know the patient and their condition a little bit at a time. Some people have been to chiropractors before and they’re like, oh, just do whatever you want to do. And then other people, it’s their first time. And I actually have seen in my impression or my experience the people that go to a chiropractor and they’ve never been before, and then that chiropractor maybe treats them just like someone that’s been coming a bunch of times, that can sometimes be when people walk out with not a good experience. Just so many things happened so fast that they weren’t sure what was going on. So it’s just a good idea to go slow and get to know the patient, get to know the condition, and let them get to know more about chiropractic. And people’s bodies actually respond differently over time.

John Ramsey:

Sure.

Dr. Todd Black:

There are people that sometimes I’m working on and it takes two weeks maybe to get them the results for that visit that we would’ve loved to have had on day one, for example.

John Ramsey:

Okay. That makes perfect sense to me. I’m curious, obviously being a doctor, you could have gone into emergency room care or something. Why did you choose chiropractic work?

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, chiropractic doesn’t have many specialties like we see in allopathic medicine. They have say physical therapy, radiology and orthopedics. They don’t really have a specialty in trauma care, but that’s kind of what I liked. I like being able to take care of injured people and being able to run MRIs and see if we can get to the root of whatever’s really bothering them, whatever damage that that car accident did. And so that’s why I personally like to work with patients that have been involved in trauma.

John Ramsey:

Interesting. And seeing improvement and when they thought, there’s no hope for me, that has to be rewarding.

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, it’s great. People come in, I’ve seen people being carried in by their grown children, and then seeing them walk out later on their own steam is a great thing. Yes.

John Ramsey:

So there’s the obvious there, doctor, but also talk about maybe injuries we’re not so aware of that you see. I guess what kind of injuries do you see in your office and at their homes?

Dr. Todd Black:

Okay, well, most people when they get in an accident, they get what we call whiplash and that’s sort of a layman’s term, a generic term for sprains and strains of the spine, which can be, that includes the neck, the middle back, the low back, the sacrum and the tailbones. It also could include, well, the whiplash doesn’t, but sprains and strains can occur in the shoulders and the knees. And so pretty much any joint is fair game to be sprained or strained in a motor vehicle accident, and chiropractors are really good at taking care of joints. And if for any reason you have some condition that I can’t take care of myself, I’m going to make sure that you get to someone that can take care of that.

John Ramsey:

Well, I’m glad you said that. I was going to ask that question. What if it’s more medically involved? You don’t mind deferring people and you can help them. I’m curious also about Chiropractor2U, because I think it’s such a great idea because I’ve been there before when I need to see a chiropractor, but I can’t get up. So I wish it existed now, and it does thanks to you. But can you still do x-rays? How does that work?

Dr. Todd Black:

Okay, well, first of all, I got a wheelchair lift on my vehicle. If you’re in real bad shape, we’ll just put you on there and we’ll cart you in.

John Ramsey:

Well, that shows your compassion. I like that. A little empathy is good.

Dr. Todd Black:

What was that last question though?

John Ramsey:

Yeah, I was just saying X-rays. So can you do them in your bus that you come to the door or how does it work?

Dr. Todd Black:

I don’t have x-rays in the bus itself. I have x-rays at my office at 2623 West Broadway. So people can come there or I can refer them to an outpatient facility. There’s one I use frequently on Dixie Highway, and there are others located throughout the city that we can use. And people just need to go there with the prescription, get the x-ray, walk in, walk out with the x-rays. And so that’s how we do x-rays. And like I said, the table is another piece of equipment that a lot of people are like, how can you do chiropractic at home? Don’t you need a big, huge table? And the ones we use at the office do weigh a hundred pounds or more, but the portable one that I use is I don’t know, 35 pounds. It just folds right up and it’s very sturdy. I picked it after years of using portable tables and found a really nice one that folds up easy, very sturdy, and I can carry it in a house or unfold it in the bus if I need to.

John Ramsey:

Chiropractor2U. There’s the information right there. Give him a call today, whether it’s in his office or he’ll come to you. I love the idea, Chiropractor2U.

Don’t Let Pain Prevent You From Getting Help

Dr. Todd Black was interviewed by Wave Listens Live host John Ramsey.  They discuss how Chiropractor2U is the mobile solution, so don’t let pain prevent you from getting help.  You can watch the entire interview at the bottom of this page.

Interview Transcript:

John Ramsey:

Chiropractor2U is exactly what the name says. It’s chiropractic service that comes to you. This, to me, makes perfect sense because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a back issue and I said, wow, I wish I could make it to the chiropractor, but it’s hurting me too much to get in and out of the car. So let’s talk to the man behind the method here. Dr. Todd Black joins us. Dr. Black, we go back a long way, man. Good to see you.

Dr. Todd Black:

Likewise. Great to be here today.

John Ramsey:

I am so glad you’re here because I think this is a genius idea. You were giving me a little bit of history on how it was created. So talk to me a little bit about maybe some of your early patients and why you decided to bring your practice to them rather than them coming to you.

Dr. Todd Black:

Okay, John. Well, I started out working for a doctor in Glasgow, Kentucky, who concentrated almost exclusively in motor vehicle accidents. And that’s where I cut my teeth, so to speak.

John Ramsey:

There we go.

Dr. Todd Black:

And then after I got into practice for a little while, sometimes I would see people that were not able to make their appointments, and then I would inquire, Hey, what happened? They’d say, well, I had to work late, or I have childcare issues, or whatever. And I started thinking, what could I do to sort of take those impediments to care off the table? And so I started going to their houses and working on them there like I did when I used to work in the catering business.

don't let pain prevent you from getting help. Chiropractor2U comes to you.

John Ramsey:

Oh, interesting. So, I see the need right away because first of all first thought is, well, if I’m in pain and I’m not too mobile, I don’t want to have to get in and out of a car. But then you’re saying, well time is of the essence. And like you said, all of these appointments and everyone’s got schedules and kids and groceries and this and that. You’re saying, I come to you, I make it easy, then you don’t miss your appointments and then therefore you get better quicker. Correct?

Dr. Todd Black:

Yeah. That’s called compliance.

John Ramsey:

There we go.

Dr. Todd Black:

All right? And that’s something that medical people strive for. Like for example, the fewer pills you have to take, the more likely you are to be able to comply. So if you have less things to do to get to care, then hopefully the same thing will happen that you’ll be more compliant and hopefully more enjoyable. We actually have a pretty good time when I’m hanging out with people. I get to know the patients pretty well and I enjoy it a whole lot driving around town.

John Ramsey:

You’re a people person.

Dr. Todd Black:

Yes, I am.

John Ramsey:

And helping people. I can tell you’re very compassionate. So Chiropractor2U, who would this be a good choice for Dr. Black? Who would you say this would fit them perfectly?

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, the number one person that it would be good for is anyone that’s been in a motor vehicle accident recently and has suffered some sort of injury. A lot of times, we’re dealing with sprains and strains, like you mentioned, of necks, backs, shoulders, knees. Sometimes people have ruptured disc or headaches is a very common one, or pain down the leg or pain down the arm, something like that. Numbness, tingling, all those kinds of things that sometimes occur after a motor vehicle accident.

John Ramsey:

So Dr. Black, when I think about a chiropractor’s office, I think about all these x-ray machines and all these really complex, huge tables and all that, but you brought a table into our studio. It’s an adjustable table. You said this works very, very well for the adjustments that you make, right?

Dr. Todd Black:

It sure does. In fact I’d say that’s my third-generation table. I actually got started with a table that I won at a raffle in chiropractic school. And that was kind of interesting because as students, we had to learn by working on each other, but we did have our own equipment. So I got really lucky I won that table and I took it home and I started adjusting my colleagues in school. And I was mentioning earlier to you, I actually did a visit for a guy that was moving out of his house in his U-Haul trailer. And it was at that point I realized, hey, I could cater this just like I used to do when I worked in fine dining here in Louisville and did catering and taking things to people’s houses.

John Ramsey:

What I think is great about this is I think all medical professionals strive to do what is best for the patient. You’re taking it to another level. You’re saying, look, not only can I care for you medically and take care of your issues through chiropractic care, but I’ll do it at your convenience in your home. Wherever you happen to be, at your office, I can make this happen. Right?

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, yes. Just think about it, even before you get in a car accident, most often our lives are just hectic as heck. And so then you get into an accident and then you find out, oh, I need to go to care three times a week for the next six weeks, and I’ve got to squeeze that into my day. And it can be pretty difficult; traffic, sitting in a waiting room, even just sitting waiting for the doctor to get to you. And then of course you got to do the whole thing in reverse, go home and all that. So I mean, I feel like I could save a person about an hour a day on each visit if they do a 30-minute commute and a little bit of weight, something like that.

John Ramsey:

A lot of times when we think about chiropractors, Dr. Black, we have the connotation of, oh, they’re going to twist my neck, oh, it’s going to really hurt. And you were telling me there’s a lot more subtle methods and you know exactly what it takes. So talk about some of the other methods for those out there saying, okay, is this going to be painful?

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, it shouldn’t be painful. There are actually about 200 different ways to adjust every bone in the body. Most chiropractors kind of center around two or three different techniques that are popular. One of them is called diversified, which I use, which is a hands-on technique that people see on TV and in YouTube videos. And then there’s more light force techniques like for example, where you call it activator, where you use a spring-loaded instrument.

John Ramsey:

I’m seeing this. Show it to us. How does it work?

Dr. Todd Black:

Turn your hand.

John Ramsey:

Oh, I see. And it’s very direct.

Dr. Todd Black:

Yeah. Right on the bone. Right on the tip of the bone and it just moves the bone ever so slightly. You know, in chiropractic school when you graduate, they make you take an oath, Doctor, do no harm, well, this is one way to do no harm.

John Ramsey:

Okay. This makes perfect sense to me. Okay. So let’s talk a little bit about affordability. Because you’re a mobile service is it more expensive for someone, doctor?

Dr. Todd Black:

No. I mean, I like to say doctors make enough already. And I didn’t want to give anybody a reason not to avail themselves of the service so I just kept the price the same as what I would charge if you came into my office where I work two days a week, Monday and Wednesday at 2623 West Broadway in case people want to come there, where we also service patients with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Passport insurance.

John Ramsey:

So we mentioned the fact that you deal mostly with car injuries, people in car accidents. With that being said, what other injuries? You said shoulders, knees, anything that has to do with the skeletal structure, I guess.

Dr. Todd Black:

Sure. Well, my friend says that almost any condition can have a functional component. And so we deal with the structure and the function to try to alleviate people’s symptoms. But like headaches are a real common thing after a car accident. I’ve been in a few myself, and the first thing that I usually get is a headache. And I don’t like to tell people, oh, chiropractic’s going to cure this or cure that. But people will ask me, Hey, will chiropractic help a headache? And I’m like, well, it depends on what’s causing it. If you have a railroad spike in your head, it’s not going to fix that, but if you’ve tried everything else and you haven’t been able to get some relief and you haven’t tried chiropractic, there’s a darn good chance that will help you.

John Ramsey:

Yeah. I think it’s interesting that your industry, your business, your part of the medical field has really advanced a long way. In other words, you’re not your grandfather’s chiropractor. Things have changed a lot. Right? Doc talk about that, some of the advancements.

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, just to give you a case in point, I’ve worked with a lot of medical professionals side by side. I’ve worked with neurologists and that were also neurosurgeons. I worked with orthopedic surgeons. I actually was employed one time at a primary care physician’s office. And he would just call me into the room where his patient had just seen him and say, Hey Todd, do you think you can help this lady out? And I would say, sure. And look at the x-rays, take them back to my side of the building and make it happen.

John Ramsey:

Now let’s talk about insurance. From what I understand, chiropractic care, insurance does cover, correct?

Dr. Todd Black:

Correct. That’s one of the reasons I do personal injury is because the fees for the service are covered by your own motor vehicle accident insurance. It’s called PIP or Personal Injury Protection, I believe is what the acronym stands for. And it covers the services almost a hundred percent. There’s always that nuance where it might not cover something, but that’s why I do it. I never wanted to take money off mom and pop’s table. I just hated for people to have to make a decision between getting care and doing something else in their life and this is one thing where I found I could do and not have to do that.

John Ramsey:

Wow, I’m just curious, Dr. Black. How much of your practice is mobile care where you go to them? Because I think it’s genius and sometimes the best ideas are simple. Because I have had the case where I go, man, I really need to see a chiropractor, but I can’t get in and out of bed or like you said, I’ve got all these appointments, I can’t miss one. So what percentage of your business does the mobile?

Dr. Todd Black:

A large percentage.

John Ramsey:

Really?

Dr. Todd Black:

Yes. One of the other things I’ve done to try to make it accessible to people is I service people on evenings and weekends too. Remember I told you people were having a hard time fitting it into their schedule. So I was like, okay, evenings and weekends, that ought to help a lot of people out. What was the rest of your question?

John Ramsey:

Well, no, I want to get to your slogan, man.

Dr. Todd Black:

Oh, the percentage.

John Ramsey:

The percentage. You said a large percentage.

Dr. Todd Black:

Oh, yeah. I only work in the office two days a week. The other five, I’m doing home care, mobile care.

John Ramsey:

Before I let you go, I have to talk about your slogan. Dr. Black has your back. Is that right?

Dr. Todd Black:

Well, yeah. I mean, I was opening one of my first offices and the guy that was working in my X-ray room goes, Hey, I know what you should put on the bus thing, you know? I said, what? He goes, I’m Dr. Black, you know I’ve got your back. And I was like, okay. Well, that was 20 years ago and finally, we have now Chiropractor2U, and we were working on some ad materials, and I just threw that in there. I’m Dr. Black and I’ve got your back.

John Ramsey:

And so where should folks go? Should they go to your website, should they give you a call if they need your help? Which is the place to go?

Dr. Todd Black:

The most direct way is just to dial my number (502)309-9037. But if you want more information, you want to see pictures and videos and things like that, you can go to the website, which is on television right now. That is at http://www.chiropractor2u.com/.

John Ramsey:

All right, Dr. Black, I’ve enjoyed the conversation. Thank you very much.

Dr. Todd Black:

Likewise. Yeah. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it.

John Ramsey:

Thank you for coming in. Very knowledgeable and making it easy for the patient.

Chiropractor Podcast

Treatment with No Out-of-Pocket Expense

Episode 3: Welcome to today’s episode of Dr. Todd Black’s podcast. People assume using a mobile chiropractic care service must be more expensive than traditional models of care. Dr. Black discusses this misconception and explains how Chiropractor2U is able to bring high-quality chiropractic treatments to your home or office, with little or no out-of-pocket expense to his clients.

Dr. Black’s Focus on Minimizing Patient Expenses
From the start, Dr. Todd Black wanted to make it easier for patients to get the quality care they needed. The fees he charges to treat you at your home or office are the same as if you were to treat with him at a traditional office.

In fact, because the majority of the patients seen by Chiropractor2U have recently been involved in an automobile accident, the majority of the treatment cost will be covered by insurance. Patients typically have little to no out-of-pocket expense (i.e. a deductible). The deductible can be held on account and settled up at the end of your accident claim.

In the state of Kentucky, no-fault insurance pays for medically necessary treatment resulting from a motor vehicle accident. It generally provides up to $10,000. This is commonly referred to as no-fault coverage or personal injury protection (“PIP”). It automatically covers insured drivers and each passenger.

How Does It Work?
Dr. Black has a mobile bus that he uses to enable him to perform chiropractic exams and adjustments, inside the bus. This innovative approach is how he’s able to conveniently treat patients at their home, office or other location. You might say he delivers “Heals on Wheels.”

To schedule an appointment, you can either contact Chiropractor2U via the website (www.Chiropractor2U.com) or if you prefer, simply call or text (502) 309-9037 to get started.

Dr. Black has practiced for over 25 years. He’s certified by the American Board of Independent Medical examiners as an independent chiropractic examiner, signifying expertise in both impairment ratings and independent chiropractic evaluations.

Dr. Todd Black Provides Chiropractic Treatment with little or no out of pocket expense

Your Initial Visit with Chiropractor to You
Once you have contacted Dr. Todd Black, you’ll need to complete a few standard, medical forms. You can download them from the website or Chiropractor2U can send them to you via courier.

Once Dr. Black arrives at your home or office, he will listen to you describe the accident and the resulting pain you’re experiencing. Dr. Black will perform an examination to see how and where you are sensing pain. In Episode 2, we discussed how patients may not realize their range of motion is being limited. The initial exam will uncover this and may help to better understand what is the specific source of your pain.

If x-rays are required, Dr. Black may refer you to a walk-in radiology facility. If he prescribes the need for x-rays, the no-fault insurance will typically cover this medical expense, as well. If you have already been to the ER, he may be able to review any x-rays that are already available.

After the diagnostics have been performed and reviewed, Dr. Todd Black will ease you into a treatment plan designed and customized specifically for you and your condition.

Soft Tissue Manipulation
Many accident victims experience soft tissue injuries. These are injuries to the muscles, ligaments and tendons resulting from the violent forces the body experienced during the auto accident. Dr. Black will use chiropractic techniques to identify the location of the pain and begin manipulating the area to ease the pain.

People may not realize that the body produces chemicals to help itself recover from an injury. This is part of the inflammatory process. Dr. Black’s chiropractic manipulation techniques work with the tissues to reduce the inflammation and help to relieve the patient’s pain.

Soft tissue manipulation is different from an actual adjustment. It’s similar to a typical massage, but chiropractors employ different techniques to get the medical results they are targeting. He may use some stretching exercises, moist heat, electric stimulation (such as a tens unit). All of these treatment modalities are available and performed on the treatment bus.

What Areas Does Chiropractor2U Cover?
Dr. Todd Black services the entire Louisville metro. This includes downtown, Prospect, Fern Creek, Okolona and even Shepherdsville and Elizabethtown. Chiropractor2U was developed to make quality injury care simple, easy and affordable.

As we wrap up this episode, remember, “I’m Dr. Todd Black and I’ve got your back!”

Be sure to follow Chiropractor2U on Facebook. If you’re in pain, call or text (502) 309-9037 today to set up your adjustment. Don’t let back pain keep you from enjoying life.

Chiropractor Podcast

Common Mistakes People Make After a Car Wreck

Episode 2: Welcome to today’s episode of Dr. Todd Black’s podcast. This episode is about mistakes people make after a car wreck. We’ll also discuss the importance of chiropractic treatment plans. The majority of Chiropractor2U’s clients have been involved in some type of automobile accident. Dr. Black will discuss common injuries and how Chiropractor2U’s mobile chiropractic care model can help patients get back to normal.

Common Car Accident Injuries
Whiplash happens very often. It can cause headaches, neck pain, back pain and/or radiating pain, etc. The numbness or tingling in the extremities can be from nerve damage, caused by the car wreck.

Pain in the shoulders, knees, ankles and wrists are also common issues for people who’ve experienced an automobile accident.

Delayed Onset of Pain
Adults often overlook the possibility of injuries to children who may have been passengers in the car at the time of the collision. Both adults and children can experience a delayed onset of pain. At the time of the accident and in the hours immediately following, the body’s true pain-level may be masked by adrenaline. As the days progress, the adrenaline wears off and the true symptoms emerge.

Should You Contact Dr. Black?
Most people tend to contact Dr. Black and Chiropractor2U within 24-hours of experiencing a car wreck. Some have already been to the ER. Others may try to tough it out. The following morning’s pain and stiffness may indicate the need for chiropractic care.

3 Common Mistakes People Make After a Car Wreck
Dr. Todd Black has practiced for over 25 years. He’s treated many auto accident victims. Here’s a list of mistakes people make regarding their health and pain.

  1. Trying to tough it out. Ignoring the pain is something many people think is the appropriate thing to do. Unfortunately, the pain may be caused by a serious, medical issue. At the same time, it prevents you from fully enjoying the life you had before the accident. If the pain persists, consider contacting Chiropractor2U. Dr. Todd Black will design a custom treatment plan for your specific situation.
  2. Applying dry heat. Many people initially attempt to treat the injury or pain by themselves. A heating pad may be one of the methods used. Initially, the heat can feel good, but it can also accelerate the inflammation, resulting in more pain.
  3. Trying to get back to normal too quickly. After an injury, the body needs time to heal. Oftentimes, people begin experiencing compensation pain because they are using different muscles to compensate for pain felt in the injured area.

The Importance of Completing Your Treatment Plan
It’s not uncommon for people to begin feeling better after a few initial adjustments (i.e. treatments). It’s at that point, some decide to discontinue their treatments. This can be a mistake.

Dr. Todd Black explains that a treatment plan is a care plan developed help you recover from your injuries. The pain may feel less than it was originally, but the body may still need help healing. He brings his mobile chiropractic office to his patient’s home or office. This innovative approach makes it much more convenient for an injured person to continue receiving the prescribed number and types of treatments. Think of it as “Heals on Wheels.”

What Areas Does Chiropractor2U Cover?
Dr. Todd Black services the entire Louisville metro. This includes downtown, Prospect, Fern Creek, Okolona and even Shepherdsville and Elizabethtown. Chiropractor2U was developed to make quality injury care simple, easy and affordable.

Chiropractor Podcast

Meet Dr. Todd Black

Episode 1: Welcome to the debut of Dr. Todd Black’s new podcast. He’s to owner of Chiropractor2U, bringing chiropractic care to a patient’s home or office. This is an innovative way to deliver high-quality, patient-centered care. Today, we’ll learn about Dr. Black and how he developed this new, healthcare delivery model.

Early in Dr. Black’s career, he worked in fine dining catering. It introduced him to the concept of taking care of people in their homes. That experience stuck with him as he studied his way through chiropractic school. Both are focused on delivering a high-quality experience in the person’s own home.

Most of the patients who treat with Chiropractor2U were involved in car wrecks or other types of motor vehicle accidents. The last thing an injured patient wants to do is to get back into a car, drive across town in busy traffic, spend unnecessary time sitting in a crowed waiting room and then driving back home after the treatment appointment. Chiropractor2U is a better solution for the patient and his/her time.

While in chiropractic school, Dr. Black won a portable adjustment table at an event. This was just one more part of the concept that eventually became Chiropractor2U.

After he graduated, Dr. Todd Black encountered a patient who was crying in the office. She was stressed out about having company in for the holidays and having to struggle to make it to her adjustment appointments. Again, it was another validation for the need to develop a mobile chiropractic office.

Chiropractor2U is also helpful for patients who are having trouble getting to treatments due to child care issues, elder care commitments or even shift work. Dr. Black is willing schedule adjustments in the evening and on weekends, to better accommodate patient schedules.

The Chiropractor2U Bus
Dr. Black has a treatment bus designed to allow for chiropractic appointments. He refers to it as a way to deliver “Heals on Wheels.” It’s designed for comfortable, easy access, including a wheelchair lift.

Chiropractor2U Delivers “Heals on Wheels.”

The first step in setting up an appointment is to book a convenient time by visiting www.Chiropractor2U.com. A patient can download the initial forms and treatment authorizations, or Dr. Black can have the paperwork delivered to the new patient.

He’ll take time to listen to the patient explain how the injury occurred, where they are sensing pain and then understand the best course of treatment. An initial exam can be performed, just like in a traditional chiropractor’s office. He and the patient will discuss a treatment plan designed for that person’s specific injuries or pain. A typical adjustment can last 20-30 minutes. However, because it’s performed at the patient’s home or office, it’s usually much less stressful.

Geographic Coverage
Dr. Black and the Chiropractor2U bus covers all of the Louisville metro area. He also can take appointments in Elizabethtown, Shepherdsville, Mt. Washington and other surrounding areas. Appointment availability can vary, but generally speaking, Dr. Black is happy to make arrangements or help you to find another trusted chiropractor in your area.
