The Legion of Chiropractic
We’re in this together
The Legion of Chiropractic is a fellowship of chiropractors dedicated to personal and professional growth where established leaders and rising stars share their ideas, talents and resources for the common good of the chiropractic profession.

To create a harmonious community, it is imperative that we adhere to certain agreements as a framework of operations. As a member of The Legion of Chiropractic I agree to the following:
- Subluxation is the cornerstone of chiropractic – The Legion of Chiropractic is committed to the science, art and philosophy of chiropractic. We recognize the VSC is an impediment to the full expression of human potential, health and vitality. We hold firm that chiropractic remain drug free and the correction of subluxation is the sole domain of chiropractic. We support the role of education in living in harmony with natural laws.
- To nurture a positive and supportive environment – As a fellowship we recognize that while methodologies may differ, we share a passion for serving humanity through chiropractic and the correction of the VSC. I respect and honor my fellow colleagues and their chiropractic journey. I will engage in dialogue and activities of a positive and supportive nature.
- To contribute – It is the responsibility of each member to commit themselves to their own personal and professional growth and development as well as the success of their colleagues by willingly exchanging ideas, talents and resources. Our philosophy is a givers gain approach. The more everyone contributes to the resource center the more everyone benefits for the common good of chiropractic and those we serve. We expect that everyone give credit where credit is due and respect to those who contribute to the resource center.
Dr. Jeffrey Slocum is a 4th generation Chiropractor, the 11th member of his family to practice. He graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1993. His passion to serve in Chiropractic and for Chiropractic is the accumulation of his sense of history in chiropractic with his family and his dedication to his colleagues and humanity.
Dr. Slocum has worked for 21 years in private practice, and partnering with some of the top Chiropractors around the globe to bring chiropractic to the communities abroad. He’s worked with Dr. Rok Morin and Dr. David Moore to build the Legion of Chiropractic, and they’re very proud of what they’ve done. They’re specifically intending to bring tools and resources and build a community that helps individual chiropractors serve one another and grow in their capacity to serve their communities. So, chiropractic is a group of individuals with such passion and such purpose that Dr. Slocum and his partners at the Legion want to applaud that, support that, and watch that grow.
Dr. Rok A. Morin
Dr. Rok A. Morin graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2001 and returned to his home state of Maine to start his chiropractic career. After a year in solo practice he joined the practice of Dr. Jeffrey Slocum, which has developed into a successful business partnership and even more successful friendship. Together, Dr. Morin and Dr. Slocum grew a highly successful practice which has blossomed into a conglomerate of 4 practices with 5 doctors called The Maine Vitality Centers. However, they have never been content to stay within the confines of their own community.
They heard the call of their mentors that challenged them to step up as leaders in the profession and developed their Learning Curves curriculum. Due to the demand of their members they added other materials to their library of resources for other chiropractors to use in their practices and communities. Eventually, they took on a third partner, Dr. David Moore, and re-launched as The Legion of Chiropractic. Dr. Morin continues to look for ways to serve his community through his practice and to serve chiropractors through The Legion of Chiropractic.

However, if you want phenomenal effective supplements that your patients can actually afford, you need to check us out at www.chirothin.com.
What We’re About… Real Food, Real People, Real Results
ChiroThin is not some “fad diet”. The Doctor Supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss program is a comprehensive, Chiropractic-based approach to both weight loss and weight management that is based on and developed around the 4 “gold standards” of weight loss: dietary and behavioral modification, nutritional supplementation, and exercise (when appropriate).
Patients eat real food that they purchase at the local grocery store which teaches them how to shop and eat in a manner that promotes health and well-being not disease and illness.
Our nutritional support formula is designed to work hand in hand with specific blends, ratios, and amounts of low glycemic/anti-inflammatory food. Additionally, is it designed and formulated to aid your body with blood sugar stabilization, hunger and craving suppression, provide a mild detoxification to the body, and aid in accelerated fatty acid metabolism (without the use of stimulants).

Successful and Safe Weight Loss Is Our Main Concern! Here are just a few of our safety parameters…
- ChiroThin is a doctor supervised program and all ChiroThin participants are pre-screened for complicating factor, poor prognostic indicators, and contraindication.
- ChiroThin is not a “protein only” program. We include complex carbohydrates to help
improve muscular endurance, as well as prevent excessive ketosis, hyperuricemia, diuresis, electrolyte loss, and re-feeding edema.
- ChiroThin is not a “low carb” program. In fact, the average person consumes approximately 200gm of healthy complex carbohydrates per day while on ChiroThin. This is more than 2 times the amount of carbohydrates allowed for a program to be considered “low carb”. Also, this is well above the minimum requirement of 130gm of carbohydrates required by Type-1 diabetics.
- ChiroThin provides a “re-feeding component” where the ChiroThin patient is transitioned back to a normal healthy diet.
- All ChiroThin patients are provided with detailed instructions, guidelines, strategies, and tools to help increase the likelihood of long term weight loss success.
What We’ve Accomplished…
In the last 6 years, the Chiropractor Supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program has helped Americans lose over 1,352,000 pounds and has added over $31,250,000.00 in CASH, weight loss-based revenue ALONE to Chiropractic offices in North America! This does not include the revenue associated with the large number new chiropractic patients that ChiroThin brings into your office.
Having over 50,000 people complete the program, and nearly 3,000 Chiropractor complete the program allowed us to perform a large, blinded meta-analysis which showed that the average patient lost 26 pounds and 22 body inches in just 6 weeks.

Helping Chiropractors Do The Right Thing
John Davila, D.C., received his degree in 1994 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Upon graduation he established three successful practices in the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area which he operated for 13 years.
Since 2000, Dr. Davila has been training doctors and staff on federal and state level insurance compliance, and has consulted for several major medical carriers. In 2001, he re-wrote the Medicare policy for chiropractic reimbursement for Palmetto GBA and served on their Physician Carrier Advisory Committee.
He is a frequent speaker for colleges, state organizations, and practice management groups. The up-close familiarity of working with review nurses and policy-makers aided Dr. Davila to create insight that only a limited number of speakers can draw upon to help doctors implement these complex regulations. He is able to make this happen with a mix of true stories, referenced government policies and a sense of humor that bring attendees a feeling of empowerment over the subject matter instead of fear.
In 2011, Dr. Davila launched Custom ChiroSolutions, a consulting company offering chiropractors individualized service and training on the same topics he has become known as a profession expert on, such as documentation requirements, coding, reimbursement strategy, billing procedures, Medicare compliance, treatment programs, OIG compliant marketing, and other strategic custom solutions to help them run a successful practice. The company also provides auditing and oversight services for Doctors of Chiropractic who are required to obtain professional monitoring by their state board.
Custom ChiroSolutions currently has over 500 EMR customizations in the field across 15 different software systems.

In order to introduce you to the LEGION of CHIROPRACTIC, we have decided to define each word and then share our ultimate mission and vision with the profession.
We define a legion as a group of like-minded people, who have a common mission, and are willing to unite in order to make a lasting difference in the world.
When we work together, we become stronger as individuals and an unstoppable force that results in a mass movement of support and mentorship.
Chiropractic has three dimensions that must be defined…
|Chiropractic when applied in its artistic form connects the union of force, tone and matter to allow the creative intelligence of the universe to express itself in perfect harmony, balance, and ease within the body known as innate.|
|Chiropractic is the science of detection and correction of interference in the expression of innate intelligence, a Vertebral Subluxation. The vertebral subluxation decreases the full expression of optimal health, adaptation to stress and ultimately leads to a dis-eased state of homeostasis. The Vertebral Subluxation can be detected by many means and methods by both physical, instrument, and technological methods.|
|Chiropractic is defined philosophically by its 33 principles which define universal and innate laws effecting the experience and expression of vital health in a living organism.|
Our founding fathers fought for us and were even placed in jail because of the beliefs and philosophies which have created the profession that all of us love so dearly.
These original leaders were actually warriors who had a vision and were unwilling to compromise what they were looking to achieve in this world. The same holds true for the Legion of Chiropractic because once you join this movement, you will become a PIONEER in your community who has the vision of bringing chiropractic to the masses.
Nothing will stop you because you will have the support of the LEGION as you will never be alone ever again.
Our Vision is to…
Bring chiropractic and chiropractors together in a defined and unified force to support and promote global wellness in a vitalistic chiropractic model.
