Instrument Adjusting for Better Results without Hurting Yourself
How much is it worth to be able to take care of patients without hurting yourself? The stress on the doctor’s body that is eliminated by instrument adjusting can dramatically improve the quality of life and extend ones career indefinitely. And if you think only in terms of income, how much is adding years of peak earning capability worth? Read more...
The addition of instrument adjusting into a new or existing practice can be an important key to better results, happier patients, more referrals and higher income with less doctor stress and fatigue.
The percussive and adjusting instruments I personally prefer are the ArthroStim® and VibraCussor® by IMPAC, Inc.
I consider instrument adjusting one of the most important developments of the last 50 years of chiropractic research and development. It provides multiple benefits for any chiropractor who incorporates it into his practice.
Main Benefits of Instrument Adjusting
Patients love instrument adjusting. It is gentle and eliminates the joint cracking sounds many find intimidating and offensive. While gentile, it can achieve very fast and dramatic results that “wow” the patients.
Instrument adjusting allows greater precision and versatility in adjusting the spine and extremities. It dramatically reduces the stress on the doctor's body. Too many chiropractor’s careers are cut short by injuries which occur at a rate comparable to professional football players.
Put simply, it extends and even saves careers.
Instrument adjusting permits adjusting of the full spine or selected areas in a wide range of positions: the usual prone and supine or with patients sitting or standing or even with the patient in motion. In fact, instruments allow for dynamic adjusting of the patient while walking in place, adding a whole new dimension to the corrective process by allowing adjustments to be made in motion and full weight bearing loads.
Dr. William Koch maintained a busy practice in the Hamptons, NY for 30 years and then relocated to the Bahamas to set-up an island 'paradise practice'. These days Dr. Bill and his wife, Kiana split their time between their practice in the quaint village of Mount Dora, Florida and their floating chiropractic office in Abaco, Bahamas, where they provide care to the remote out-island residents.
Dr. Bill's adventurous nature carries over to his professional life. He has explored - and personally worked with - most of the techniques on the site. His wide-range of experiences provide him with a unique overview and insights, which he shares with others through his writing and seminars. Dr. Koch has authored numerous articles for chiropractic magazines and also writes a newsletter/ blog: Chiropractice Made Perfect, which can be found on his website: https://drwilliamhkoch.com/
Dr. Koch also recently published the book: Conversations with Chiropractic Technique Masters, available as and e-book on Kindle or in print from Amazon.
He also teaches seminar workshops in The Koch Protocols for Integrated Advanced Chiropractic Techniques. These hands on workshop style seminars teach the protocols Dr. Koch has put together over his 50 years in practice, which integrate his favorite technique methods into a cohesive system for consistently great results.
In his classes he teaches how he uses Advanced Examination and Adjusting Techniques including Instrument Adjusting for Better Results and Happier Patients in a simple model of a Patient Centered Referral Based Cash Practice.
In recent years there have been enormous improvements in the design and technology of hand held chiropractic instruments, as well as in the various technique methods for their use. This has resulted in the opportunity for significantly better, faster results for our patients. It has also resulted in effective treatment options that are much easier on the doctors. In his seminars Dr. William H. Koch discusses the benefits of instrument adjusting for both patients and doctors and demonstrating the various technique approaches he uses. His classes include one on one instruction and hands on practice through his unique See It, Feel It, Do It approach to teaching.
He teaches his unique cohesive protocols for instrument adjusting using the ArthroStim, VibraCussor and GRT Lite in conjunction with a variety of other techniques including SOT, Gonstead, Creed Neural Integration, Gonzalez Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation, and others to get incredible, quick and lasting results for your patients.

What some doctors are saying about Koch Advanced Technique Seminars
“After following Dr. Koch’s articles in the American Chiropractor magazine, I decided to check out his offered seminars. Primarily a manual adjustor for 27 years, I owned an ArthroStim but was never formally trained in how to get the most out of the instrument. Lucky for me, Dr. Koch had availability in his October 2018 seminar for both me and my husband, Dr. John.
Dr. Koch’s seminars are given at his office and are small so that each doctor gets plenty of “hands on” experience. That’s what really attracted me to the seminar; it wasn’t going to be another seminar with 50+ docs attending where you don’t necessarily leave “owning” the material taught. With this program, you could start implementing right away with patients.
Little did I know was that Dr. Koch and his wonderful wife Kiana, would treat us like old friends. What a fantastic environment to learn in! We had hands on use of the equipment (ArthroStim and VibraCussor), demonstrations and hands on of manual techniques that enhanced my own, well put together manuals for reference, his book Conversations with Chiropractic Techniques Masters, stories from their Chiropractic marathon of service, plenty of snacks to keep us going and love from their fur baby, Coco Chanel!
For all that we received, including post seminar correspondence, the value of the four-day program exceeded most of the seminars I’ve attended in the past! If you’re thinking about expanding your technique arsenal and learning from someone who has learned from the masters in Chiropractic, Dr. Bill and Kiana are your connection!
Thank you, Dr. Bill and Kiana for the dedication that you have to the Chiropractic profession, and its doctors, young and seasoned!”

"I have taken many seminars in my 30+ years as a Chiropractor and must say, Dr Koch's seminar ranks at the very top, for both the overall experience and materials learned! Whether you are a veteran or a new graduate, you will have a great experience with Dr. Koch's seminar for the following reasons:
• Content is easily learned and immediately applicable Monday morning.
• Dr Koch is an excellent teacher and communicator and thus you will leave the seminar understanding everything he teaches. He is adamant about making sure everyone leaves with a thorough knowledge of what he reviews!
• His seminar manual is excellently written and supports all the information he covers, so you'll have a great reference when you go back to use what you've learned at your office.
• Dr Koch is a pleasure to be around so he makes the entire event fun too! His personality is neither dry nor boring so you'll enjoy the process each and every day.
If you really want to help your patients with better outcomes, get more referrals and feel more competent helping more and potentially tougher cases than you do now, this seminar is for you!
I do not endorse all the seminars I've been to, and I have been to a lot of them. The fact that I speak so highly of Dr Koch is because it is the truth. Its that simple.
You won't be disappointed!!"

“My experience pertaining to Chiropractic related seminars is they are high on hype and cost and low in value. Most of the time my drive back to the airport following one these seminars is filled with a feeling of frustration. A conflict about the actual value received compared with the time, energy and cost spent traveling. The realization of another unfulfilled promise.
After leaving Kiana and Bill’s office my trip to the airport was quite different. Frankly, I was dumbfounded. I did not pay them enough. They both have a treasure chest of knowledge not only about practice and the profession but also the challenges chiropractors face in their private lives. Bill and Kiana give from their hearts. From our first contact they wanted to know where I was at in both practice and life and how they could be of help.
My time at the seminar was well spent. Now several months later looking back and reflecting on my weekend with them, the feeling of satisfaction and appreciation continues to grow.
If you are considering this seminar give them a call. You can speak freely with them and see what they are all about.”

“Koch Advanced Technique Seminars -- simple to learn, yet profoundly effective. I've only taken the first seminar and the results are simply outstanding. In 4 visits, I am having patients with long term hip issues being reduced substantially to where they are able to get out and live life again. 8 out of 10 patients I am able to have them go from an 8/10 in pain to 0-2/10. In follow-ups with these patients, I am finding they are for the most part maintaining for a month or two following their last visit. Personally, I find this remarkable, because it is correcting something that in the past might last for a few weeks before they come back with the same issue again. Having patients tell me they can walk up stairs again with little to no pain or go on long car rides with little to no pain is amazing!
I've been to countless technique seminars and have used all sorts of equipment to help patients get better. Yet I find the effectiveness of this technique, using only SOT blocks, the VibraCussor and ArthroStim, is outstanding. All soon to be docs, new docs and even seasoned docs need to experience this technique. It has the lowest equipment cost investment for any doc and the results are amazing. Where else can you have all the equipment you need for about $3,500! Very little overhead needed and the patients do refer their friends! It is an amazing system.
Dr. Bill does a phenomenal job teaching, and it is a hands-on seminar from the beginning! He is a mastermind and has learned from almost all of the past and current virtuosos.
If you have limited funds and are looking for the best bang for your buck, your practice and your patients, then this is the seminar! It is worth every red cent.
