Chiropractic In America



   The Full Potential of Chiropractic
       Is Not Being Recognized
  • Only an estimated 5% of Americans are
    receiving chiropractic care annually
     – According to US Government data, 40 million
       Americans have used chiropractic in their lifetime
     – 15 million in the past year

   Chiropractic Lacks a Clear and
Consistent Public Brand/Position/Story
  • Multiple associations (national and state) — with
    varying philosophies about chiropractic — are
    promoting their visions to the public.
  • Mixed messages about chiropractic are abound
     – Wellness, back pain, health promotion, care the for
       whole family, spinal health, etc.

  Individual Chiropractors Are Doing
         Their Own Marketing
  • Efforts focus on building chiropractic practices rather
    than promoting the value of chiropractic care
     – Chiropractors are often viewed as small business people
       first and healthcare providers second
     – Few promotional programs promote the value of and
       benefits of chiropractic in a relevant way
Chiropractic In America


       As a Result, Chiropractic’s
     Public Profile and Image Suffer
  • Americans see chiropractors as the least honest
    and least ethical healthcare professionals
     – Only 31% of Americans considered chiropractors ethical
       and honest
     – Compared with 83% for nurses, 68% for MDs, 67% for
       pharmacists, 61% for dentists, and 38% for psychiatrists
                                           Source: Gallup News Service

On the Other Hand, Many People Value
and Have Confidence in Chiropractors
  • In the Environics survey, 55% of Americans
    said they have confidence in chiropractors
    (20% a great deal and 35% some)
     – 15% have no opinion
     – This is less than their level of confidence in medical
       doctors and about the same as their level of confidence
       in physiotherapists
Research


                 Research
            Business Approach
  • The FCP commissioned an Environics survey
    of 1001 adult Americans from October 28 to
    November 3, 2004.
     – The margin of error is plus/minus 3.1 percentage points,
       19 times out of 20

 People Don’t Seek Chiropractic Care
   Because They Don’t Understand
  • In the Environics survey, only 7% of those who had
    experienced significant pain in the past year described
    themselves as regular frequent chiropractic patients
     – 32% said they had no reason or need to go or they didn’t think
       chiropractic would be useful or effective for them
     – 17% said they were no longer in pain and 15% cited cost or lack of
       insurance
  • The leading factor to get them to go to the chiropractor was
    persistent pain
 Chiropractic In America


            The Issue Is Effectiveness
               Rather Than Safety
• In the Environics survey, non-users, former, and declining users
  were more concerned over perceived effectiveness of
  chiropractic rather than safety issues
• Effectiveness:
   – 16% said chiropractors don’t offer services that would be useful to them
   – 6% said the chiropractor neither helped nor hurt them
   – 1% said they did not understand what chiropractors do
Chiropractic In America


         The Issue Is Effectiveness
            Rather Than Safety
 • In the Environics survey, non-users, former, and declining
   users were more concerned over perceived effectiveness
   of chiropractic rather than safety issues
 • Safety:
    – 5% cited personal bad experiences
    – 4% cited no faith in chiropractors
    – 2% thought chiropractors were unqualified
Chiropractic In America

 Despite High Levels of Satisfaction,
 Chiropractic Is Not Creating Enough
      Regular, On-Going Users
  • Environics survey found that 47% of respondents had never
    been to a chiropractor, only 5% described themselves as
    regular current users
  • 31% of Americans are declining (7%), occasional (7%), or
    minimal (17%) users
  • 13% are former users who said they have gone in the past,
    but stopped going all together
 Chiropractic In America


Prevention, Maintenance, and Wellness
Messages Are Turning Off Consumers
• In the Environics survey, 30% no longer went to the chiropractor
  because their problem went away or they have not had a need
• 21% listed cost or lack of insurance as the reason
• 15% care had no impact or didn’t help
• 11% bad experience
• 7% didn’t think services would be useful to them
• 2% endless cycle of visits
Chiropractic In America

 Consumers Aren’t Interested in Receiving
General Health and Wellness Care and Advice
             from Chiropractors
  • In the Environics survey, 80% of respondents said they
    would not consider going to the chiropractor for general
    advice about their health
  • 85% in the total said they would not go to the chiropractor
    for counseling about nutrition or other lifestyle issues.
  • 81% of non-users and 74% of all respondents said they
    would not consider going to a chiropractor to improve their
    overall health

              Build Perceived Value
  • Who’s perception is most important?
  • What’s the current perception?
  • How do we change it?
Positioning
                   Perception
              Concentrate on the perceptions of the
                prospect, not the reality of the product

              What matters are the perceptions that
               exist in the mind. The essence of
               positioning thinking is to accept the
               perceptions as reality.

    How Do We Change Perception?

                 We don’t!

              Take advantage of positions you already
              own in the minds of your prospects and
              relate them to a new position.

              If you try to be all things to all people, you
              wind up with nothing. Better to narrow the
              focus of your expertise — to establish a unique
              position as a specialist.

Positioning: Target


        Who Is Our Biggest Target?
               Back Pain Sufferers
   Why?
       – Back pain sufferers have a need for chiropractic care
         and will benefit from care
       – There are many of them (one-year prevalence rate is 33-44%
       – Those who have been once and more likely to return
The Back Marketplace



           Back Pain Represents
            a Huge Opportunity
   • One of the most common afflictions in the
     United States according to the medical
     journal Spine
      – Lifetime prevalence of back pain is 75% to 90%
The Back Marketplace



Chiropractic Has the Best Back Story,
       But It Is Not Being Told
 • Chiropractic’s strongest research support is in
   treatment of back pain
    (AHCRP, Clinical Practice Guidelines, RAND, Spine 1997, BMJ 1992 and 1995, The Manga Report 1993)

 • In a media audit of back pain stories from the past
   year, of the 12,363 print stories that appeared,
   only 3.6% mentioned chiropractors
5 Steps to Success




         Whom Must You Outgun?

           You must spend as much time thinking about the situation
           from the point of view of your competitors as you do thinking
           about it from your own.
Positioning: Competitive Set


      What Is Our Competitive Set?
   Other treatments
       – OTCs, prescriptions, home remedies
   Other providers
       – Medical doctors and other health professionals
   Doing nothing
The Back Marketplace


      What Is Our Competitive Set?
     People are not getting, and in many cases
     not seeking, the care and relief they need
      – Many back pain sufferers are using self-help
        remedies, taking drugs, or doing nothing
         • In the Environics survey,
             –   35% said they use OTC medications,
             –   20% said prescriptions,
             –   14% said home remedies
             –   11% said they did nothing
Positioning: Dramatic Difference


   What Is Our Dramatic Difference?

            •   Proven effective treatment
            •   Patient satisfaction
            •   Cost effective back pain care
            •   No drugs, no surgery
Positioning: Concept

                  THINK AGAIN!
IF YOU THINK
 a medical doctor is the only source for good health care,
 aches and pains are part of growing older,
 your child is too young to benefit from chiropractic care,
 being pregnant means suffering with back pain,
                                    THINK AGAIN!
Positioning: Concept

                  THINK AGAIN!
IF YOU THINK
 chiropractors only treat bad backs,
 the only to treat pain is with drugs,
 surgery is the only answer to your back problem,
 there’s nothing you can do about migraine headaches,
 there’s no effective remedy to your health problem,
                                 THINK AGAIN!
Positioning: Concept

                  THINK AGAIN!
IF YOU THINK
 there’s no substitute for the relief you get from VIOXX,
 your back pain will likely go away without proper care,
 age & occupation are making your legs give out on you,
 colds & runny noses are natural in this climate,
                                   THINK AGAIN!

                Successful campaign positioning

5 Steps to Success


            Can You Stick It Out?
              It’s important to take a long-range point
              of view — to determine your basic
              position and then stick with it.

              Owning a position in the mind is list
              owning a valuable piece of real estate.
              Once you give it up, you might find it’s
              impossible to get it back again.
5 Steps to Success


      Do We Have Enough Money?

             It takes money to:
                – Build a share of mind
                – Establish a position
                – Hold a position once you’ve established it
