Dear Beloved Chiropractic Assistant, It’s Jo-Anne here. I have been a CA since 2009. I worked inside the clinic as a front desk CA a technical CA for three years and have been a patient outreach specialist for the last several years. (I also have a degree in Communications, diploma in Advertising and Marketing Communications, diploma in Natural Nutrition and I run two companies.) I understand how you feel. It can be extremely overwhelming to be the go-to person to run absolutely every part of the office, other than actually adjusting! There is no time during a shift to bring any personal pieces into the office because you have to focus on the patients that need your attention during adjusting hours. You have to get really good at dropping all of your emotional bags at the door and bring your best self to your team every day. This is super important, because your patients are dying. They literally are.
