Our Experts

We began helping chiropractors by forming PM&A in 1988 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Our ultimate goal with each doctor is to bring about Practice Freedom. That is, creating a business that runs itself separate from the personality of the owner, allowing him or her to be free to live a balanced and prosperous life.Ed-Dave-2012

Our objective was then, as it is now, to help chiropractors develop and manage their businesses by providing personal consulting, coaching and teaching – all customized for each doctor.

We have worked with all types of health care facilities, from dentists, dermatologists, podiatrists, D.O.’s, medical doctors, but have specialized in the chiropractic profession. We both believe in and practice the natural approach to health care and the chiropractic life style.
