Our goal at The Strategic Chiropractor is simple: we want to help DC’s work SMARTER in their business AND in getting OUT of practice. That’s been the mission of our founder, Dr. Tom Necela for over a decade and that’s at the heart of everything we do.

On the working smarter IN practice side, that means we teach chiropractors (& their staff) smart billing, coding, documentation and business strategies to help them increase their income, improve their practice efficiency and protect their business.  We do this via our coaching programs, our products, our live events and blog articles.  If things go wrong, we also provide chiropractic audit help and/or expert witness services to chiropractors and their attorneys.
On the other side of the fence, we also help chiropractors work smarter getting OUT of practice by assisting docs to maximize the value of their practice sale or transition through our chiropractic transitions services, events, products and blog articles.

Either way, Dr. Necela and our team are focused on helping you find the smartest way to succeed! We don’t believe in tired old tactics, cookie cutter solutions or doing things because that’s the way it’s always done.  We’re busy discarding what doesn’t work, disrupting our profession for the better and determined to help you succeed on your own terms!

Over 20,000 blog subscribers agree and we hope to count you as a member of our community of chiropractors looking to do things smarter.  If you’re not already a subscriber, click HERE and start working smarter, not harder — today!

Dr. Necela’s Background

Dr. Necela is the first chiropractor to ever to achieve Certified Professional Medical Auditor (CPMA) status, which combined with his background as a former insurance claims analyst and his certifications as a professional coder (CPC) and professional compliance officer (CCP-P), give him a unique perspective on many of the insurance-based challenges chiropractors face today.

For nearly two decades, Dr. Necela’s wit and wisdom has been featured in the biggest chiropractic publications such as Dynamic Chiropractic, DC Practice Insights, Chiropractic Economics and Today’s Chiropractic Lifestyle. He’s also been a contributing editor to the ChiroCodeDeskbook and ChiroCode’s Hot Topics Newsletter as well as author of numerous books and audio products that serve the chiropractic profession.

He is a frequented speaker at state chiropractic association meetings and webinars for industry leading groups such as ChiroHealthUSA, ChiroCode and more. Click here to inquire about Dr. Necela speaking at your next live or virtual event.

Testimonial 2

Dr. Necela takes a very hands on and proactive approach – integrating himself and his keen knowledge – within the clinic or organization with which he is working. His expertise is taught to key staff and the clinic’s current standard operating procedures are closely examined and audited in order to produce a most effective outcome. Specifically, Dr. Necela bettered our understanding of our working and billable relationship by and between health insurance providers which also increased revenue. I give Dr. Necela my highest accolades and would consider him a valued asset to with whom he works.

When I hired you, I was worried about compliance and the quality of my documentation with all the talk of audits going around. I didn’t think my notes were that good. In the process of fixing that, you helped me discover that I was also missing out on income by not billing for things properly and by not utilizing efficient procedures in my office. Your systematic approach has made it easier for me to sleep at night and to create a more profitable practice. Already we have seen significant results of increased income after only a few months of working with you! Thanks Tom!
