One thing is for sure… we know that BJ Palmer, the Developer of Chiropractic, had a sincere love for the CIRCUS.  It was reflected in many areas of his life — from the job of his youth to his collection of memorabilia; from his relationships with friends and patients to the decorating motiff of his vacation home in Sarasota, Florida (the headquarters of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus).

So in that spirit, the chiropracTORs of the Portland-based EPOC, Legacy, put on a little show

…a 1st Annual Show that SpinalColumnRadio was honored to attend… to not only capture the essence of this “High Flying Event,” but to interview their great line up of speakers: Fred Schofield, Ron Oberstein, David Jackson, Paul Reed, Russ Rosen, Lyle Koca, Matt Hubbard, and Randy Baze… all under the Big Top!  It was chiropracTIC old-school-style.

Find out more information on upcoming events: check out their website at BigTopLegacyGathering.com, or email Dr. Nima Samiee at nima_samiee AT hotmail DOT com.

UPDATE: Big Top Legacy is now known as Chiro Fest.  Visit their website at ChiroFest.org.

In August 2012, Logan and I were invited back to Dr. Paul Reed’s “Premier ChiropracTIC Event in the Northwest.”  This time instead of being held in a circus tent on the back 40, it was moved indoors to the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA — a venue that screams Northwest — and rebranded as ChiroFEST.  We had an awesome time reconnecting with many chiropracTORS that have graced our mics in the past, grabbing some fresh interviews with those that haven’t, and meeting up with some long-time listeners.

In September 2013, Dr. Paul Reed’s ChiroFEST shot to a new level.  The event was moved north to Seattle and was expanded to 2-days.  This year’s theme: Mission ImPossible with ChiropracTIC.  And so, Logan and Dr. Lamar took up their assignment as Special Agents and went “TOR on the Street” to cover this Epic Event that drew 17 speakers and an audience of 500.  Tune in to hear Dr. Lamar ask one central question to every speaker that graced the stage:

What is POSSIBLE with ChiropracTIC?
