Web-based Referral and Sampling Program drives new patients and clients to clinics.

Akron, Ohio – November 18, 2013 – Biofreeze, the #1 clinically used and recommended topical pain reliever, is now available for consumer trial and through the ease of online ordering.

“We are very excited to introduce the newest element of our Biofreeze sampling program, the extremely successful program that supports clinicians in bringing new patients and clients through their door,” stated Ethan Pochman, Vice President, US Clinical, Performance Health. “We wanted to take the Biofreeze sampling program to the next level and believe that social media is the best way to do that. With our new online sampling application, we accept consumer requests for free Biofreeze samples and provide those requests to practitioners in the consumer’s area. This creates an opportunity for the practitioner to introduce both Biofreeze and their practice to someone looking for pain relief; someone who may likely become a new patient or client.”

To participate in the program, practitioners need to enroll in the Biofreeze Where-to-Buy Referral Service at and order a supply of free Biofreeze samples. With the introduction of this new online request application, the Where-to-Buy program now supports two channels of access for Biofreeze Pain Reliever, which is not available at retail. Consumers looking for immediate purchase can use the Where-to-Buy online locator to identify local practitioners who sell Biofreeze. Consumers looking to first trial Biofreeze can request a sample at

Registered Where-to-Buy practitioners wanting to participate in this new program can order free product samples at 800-BIOFREEZE (800-246-3733). Many practitioners have been using Biofreeze samples as a highly effective marketing tool for years. The sample is an information card customized with the practitioner’s contact information and a Biofreeze packet attached. Performance Health provides these samples to practitioners in whatever quantity they need for patient trial or for events in their communities.

With this newest Biofreeze sample request application, registered practitioners can inexpensively yet efficiently expand their marketing efforts. The practitioner is provided with the consumer’s name, phone number, mailing address and e-mail address. They put together a simple envelope with the free sample that has been customized for their practice and some great information about their practice. Now

they have a very low cost, yet very targeted marketing piece and have started a conversation with a potential patient or client, someone who has already indicated a need for pain relief by requesting a sample.

“As the number one topical analgesic, we receive the kind of web traffic that can create from ten to many hundreds of leads a week for a single practitioner,” concluded Pochman. “We know practitioners are excited about new patients so we encourage them to call 800-Biofreeze. We will explain everything they need so that they can start to take advantage of this program and bring potential new patients to their door.”

For over 20 years, Biofreeze Pain Reliever has been helping people reduce their pain and manage discomfort. This market leading topical analgesic provides relief for millions of individuals suffering from sore or strained muscles, shoulder and arm discomfort, neck, back, hip and leg pain, painful joints, ankle and foot pain, and pain associated with bruising or arthritis. Research proves what these users already know…it works. No other topical analgesic in the marketplace is backed by as much research.

Biofreeze is 100% paraben-free, propylene glycol free and available in original green and colorless dye-free formulas. Its botanical blend includes ilex, arnica, aloe, boswellia, calendula, green tea, burdock root and lemon balm.

Advanced Management for Chiropractors, AMC announces Free CE Academy
Press Release

Monday, 20 January 2014 15:14
Tom Owen, President of AMC says “Our members kept asking for us to design a relevant, engaging applicable CE course, so in 2014 we are pleased to introduce the AMC Free CE Academy”

January 2014- Why is AMC doing a free CE course? AMC is committed to preserving the true philosophy of chiropractic and improving the image of the profession. After working with tens of thousands of chiropractors over the years AMC decided to answer a need in the industry, designing and executing a Continuing Education course that would give doctors relevant content in an engaging presentation that could then immediately be applied to their practices. How did AMC accomplish this? The course was designed by chiropractors, for chiropractors to be used in chiropractic practices.

Dr. Bill Kriva, AMC Midwest Director and one of the course designers and instructors said “after years and years of attending CE courses so dry and boring that it felt like I was getting my teeth drilled with no Novocain, I knew there had to be another way. We all have to get the hours in but, after sitting through a weekend of courses, if there is nothing I can apply in the office on Monday morning what good was the time spent in class?” AMC had heard this countless times through the years and at the urging of Dr. Kriva and others AMC decided that 2014 would be the year they would offer a class.

The course is titled “Chiropractic Management of Visceral Conditions” it will help eliminate a general lack of understanding within the chiropractic profession regarding the scientific evidence, as well as the clinical protocols, that support chiropractic as an option for the management of visceral conditions. This course is designed to increase both the competence and the confidence of the chiropractor with respect to managing the visceral conditions of their patients. The course will be offered 11 times in 2014 in cities all across the country. AMC receives no payment for the 12 CE’s. AMC is providing them free to the profession. The weekend also includes a special explosive marketing event on how to get 100 New Patients in 100 Days and more importantly how to keep them while unlocking your practice’s full potential. Get a complete listing of cities by logging on now to

The mission of AMC Free CE Academy is to empower chiropractors through research, education, and unparalleled presentations to improve the lives of their patients and the health of their communities. All course credits are approved in host states and are accredited by Sherman College.

2013 Logan University Graduate Wins The Graduate Package, $12,000 Worth of Cutting-Edge Chiropractic Essentials for the New Practitioner

LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Dr. Mark Elam, a 2013 graduate of Logan University, was selected from a drawing of thousands of fellow recent Chiropractic graduates and students to receive The Graduate Package, $12,000 Worth of Cutting-Edge Chiropractic essentials from four industry leaders: Foot Levelers, Inc., Lloyd Table Company, Activator Methods® International Ltd., and Multi Radiance Medical® LaserLongevity™.  Dr. Elam’s exciting stroke of luck was announced at Parker Seminars Las Vegas’ annual awards ceremony today by Co-founder and CEO of Activator Methods, Dr. Arlan Fuhr.
The Graduate Package provides new Chiropractic graduates the tools needed to get their practices off to a successful start. It includes:
  • Foot Levelers 3D BodyView™
  • Activator Methods Activator V
  • MR4™ Super Pulsed Laser
  • Foot Levelers Tri-Flex® One Unit-Whole Body Rehab
  • Lloyd 400AH Adjusting Bench
  • Foot Levelers Pillo-Pedic® (2)
  • Foot Levelers MyFit® Custom Pillow
Just as adjustment, support, and rehab equipment are the essentials in any practice, continuing education plays an equally important role.  To further benefit new graduates, Activator Methods® and Foot Levelers have included two (2) free seminars as part of the Graduate Package.  

“It’s pretty incredible,” says Dr. Mark Zeigler, Vice President of Education for Foot Levelers, who along with Greenawalt conceived of the Graduate Pack earlier last year.  “Here we’ve got these four leaders—Activator with 47 years in business, Lloyd with 50, Multi Radiance who just celebrated their 20th anniversary, and Foot Levelers with a 61-year legacy—putting aside concern for the ‘bottom line’ to give back to the profession, to support the next generation.” 
Dr. Elam, today’s winner of a free Graduate Pack, is elated. “I'm humbled and honored to receive this gift from these four great companies. It takes some of the fear out of going into the 'real world.' With these four companies offering their guidance, I feel a lot more secure,” he says.

Dr. Elam isn’t the only “winner”. Although the combined cost for these essentials is upward of $12,000, the Graduate Package is available for any new Chiropractor to purchase at just $5,995 (the unprecedented collaborative promotion was first made available in November of 2013).  That’s because the participating companies agreed to donate their state-of-the-art equipment “at cost.” “We wanted to recognize the accomplishment of graduating from Chiropractic college and to also offer these recent graduates the tools [they need to start a practice] cost effectively,” says Kent Greenawalt, Foot Levelers’ Chairman and CEO.  “These young clinicians are the future of our profession. It’s important to support them.”

The four partners also decided to absorb all shipping and packaging costs, saving a new doctor another estimated $200-$500. Financing has been made available for as low as $130 a month.  That means a new doctor can be up and practicing within days of ordering, and for a little more than $4 a day.
