Helping Interns become Healthcare Professionals: Natalie

Our office has allowed internships for high school and college students to give them a real world experience in a healthcare office.  The schools that approve internships have observed and found top-quality front and back office procedures at Euclid Chiropractic. These school approved programs qualify these students through their educational work ethic and potential ability to be an asset in a healthcare office.

Most of these students have done well in their science classes, and are looking to enter a college for medical assistant, prenursing or premed program.  After efficient in-office training is completed these students work independently similar to paid staff.  Our office strives to have a professional and personal atmosphere.  This helps interns adapt quickly from the classroom setting.

Seasoned interns are allowed to observed doctor-patient treatments, assist with patient care through delivering therapy, and help with x-ray development/analysis.  In the front office interns learn the multitasking abilities of answering the phone, filing and scheduling patients for their next visit.

Overall, this experience is a win-win for the students as well as our office.  The students can apply their classroom knowledge and learn new skills to keep them excited in their future as a healthcare professional.  For the doctors and staff we enjoy teaching the passionate next generation of medical assistants, nurses and doctors.

If you are looking to get your feet wet by experiencing interning in a fast-paced healthcare office, contact Dr. Ratkovic through our office or email.  Presently as a student at Upland HS or Baldy View ROP, you can also get classroom credit.  Either way we are happy to help students observe and help improve people’s lives.

Why Carina is Healthy Again

Carina taped a video testimonial for us a few weeks back.  She spoke of coming into the office with back pain that was not going away and becoming more intense.  Carina is in her late 20’s, and had no injuries.  She could only say the cause was her work (standing/sitting in an office), and she stopped working out about 6 months ago.

Carina’s Video Testimonial/Review

In the exam, she realized her posture has become hunched over from sitting at work/driving and a lack of exercise.  This made Carina look like Sam:

head forward, rounded shoulder forward, hunched upper back, leaning forward.

Then we took Carina’s neck x-ray.  Compared to our normal x-ray that has a natural curve, 0-5mm forward head posture, and open disc spacing; Carina’s cervical spine was straight, 20mm forward head posture, and thin disc spacing between the vertebrae.

Normal Lateral Cervical Spine.  0mm Forward Head Posture.

Carina’s cervical spine with 20mm Forward Head Posture.

This cause the neuropathy ran from the neck to the upper and lower back.

Carina started the Chiropractic treatment.  This included adjustments (to correct her spine) and posture exercises (to retrain her muscles to hold a better spine).

After about 6 weeks of treatment Carina was feeling better and started back at the gym.  Here she was able to get her strength and confidence back to stay healthy on her own.  Then we retook her x-rays.  Here is Carina’s improvement:

If you compare to Carina’s first x-ray, you see her neck improved from 20 to 15mm Forward Head Posture.  This allows her posture to improve.  Now Carina can stay healthy with maintain her good posture now by keeping up her exercises.

With an x-ray analysis and the correct posture exercises you can stay healthy on your own.
