Planning Your List Of Wholesale Chiropractic Supplies
In planning your wholesale chiropractic supplies shopping list, we suggest that you give priority to those supplies that are reusable or that can be used in more than one type of procedure. These types of supplies will have greater revenue generating potential than single use items or those that are specific to a single procedure.
You will also find it beneficial to make a list of the pricing mark ups you will be charging for each major procedure as well as the supplies you need for that procedure. Then give the highest priority to the supplies needed for the procedures with the highest markup. These supplies should then be given the highest priority for inclusion on your whole chiropractic supplies shopping list.

TENS, NMES & IFC5 ProductsOur TENS, NMES & IFC units will provide a range of therapeutic or rehabilitation benefits based on the type of electrical signal the unit produces and how you use it:
- The chief objective of Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is temporary relief from the pain of sore or aching muscles or from chronic pain. It provides limited functionality compared to the other modalities described below, but at a more economical cost;
- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has the objective of relaxing muscle spams, preventing muscle atrophy and increasing blood circulation and joint range of motion. It is similar to electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) but is more focused on rehabilitation instead of athletic training.
- Interferential Current (IFC) Stimulation focuses on symptomatic relief of pain, whether this is chronic, acute, post traumatic or post surgical. It is similar to TENS but more effective, powerful and costly.
Massage Creams & Ointments4 ProductsCreams & ointments meet many needs in a typical physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic or other clinical practice involving manual therapy. The ideal massage cream needs to provide the glide property of an oil in order to give the therapist the freedom to apply deeper modalities when this is the appropriate choice. This would be important, for example, for a massage therapist performing longitudinal gliding therapy on a patient. At other times, the cream or ointment needs to possess the frictional property of a lotion. An example of this would be the application of transverse friction to tendon or ligament injuries in order to break down thickened scar tissue that may be causing pain to the patient. The selection of creams & ointments in this section will provide various choices as to the mix between glide and friction. The optimal choice will depend on the mix of techniques you prefer to apply in your practice.
Braces and Supports221 ProductsAt Dunbar Medical, we can offer you a comprehensive selection of orthopedic braces and supports. Orthopedic braces and supports provide protection for injured joints or soft tissues. They will also help to realign and correct the relative positions of bones and/or soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, muscles, etc) during the recovery period. This ensures a complete return to full health and normal use of the injured body part. In general, braces can be classified based on their fit, purpose and the body part for which they are designed. Where fit is concerned, a brace may be either off the shelf or custom made. Off the shelf supports come in predetermined sizes (small, medium, etc), are ready to use right after purchase and are generally less expensive than custom made designs. The braces and supports on this site are all of the off the shelf variety. Custom made braces are designed for specific individuals. Before construction of the brace, a manufacturer representative or orthopedic technician will carry out a fitting procedure on the patient. Orthopedic braces and supports may be designed for prophylactic, functional or rehabilitative purposes. Prophylactic braces are designed to prevent injury and so are used primarily by healthy individuals. Rehabilitative braces are designed for use following a surgical procedure and will immobilize the injured body part to promote proper healing. Functional supports provide support and protection for existing injuries. Finally, braces and supports are each designed for a specific body part such as the knee, elbow, ankle, wrist, back, shoulder, etc. The bone and soft tissue structures in each area of the body are very different and the braces and supports for each area need to be designed to address the support and stabilization needs of each specific body part. Pregnant women also experience specific stresses in the hips and pelvic area, and maternity braces and supports are designed to address the specific needs that may arise during maternity.
Analgesics13 ProductsPain relief from analgesics will be valuable to patients after undergoing intense sessions of manual therapy. The key benefit will be the ability of the patient to undergo more frequent sessions and to gain additional therapeutic benefits. However, analgesics will also be of benefit to patients who are experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness after exercise or intense physical activity.Patients experiencing repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or lower back pain will also appreciate the pain relief these products provide. There are also several medical conditions like arthritis that result in chronic pain. Patients suffering from these ailments will derive considerable quality of life improvements from the pain relief offered by the products in this section. Analgesics that are plant based and for topical use only also present less health risks than other over the counter medications. This applies to most of the products in this section.
Medical Examination Gloves6 ProductsMedical Examination Gloves are important supplies for your clinic in helping to protect both your staff and your patients from communicable illnesses. To help you make your selection in this section, we have included some pointers below:
- Which material should I choose? - Latex, nitrile & vinyl are the most popular choices. However, they each have strengths and drawbacks of which you should be aware. Latex gloves offer good barrier protection and are also close fitting and flexible. However, the prevalence of latex allergies has seen a decrease in the popularity of this material in recent years. Nitrile, a synthetic rubber like material, has become increasingly popular as it offers almost the same strength and flexibility as latex without the allergic risks. Vinyl is an economic choice but offers less sensitivity and protection than either latex or nitrile.
- How thick should the gloves be? Gloves that are 3-4 thousandths of an inch thick are adequate for most medical and dental situations. Thicker gloves provide better protection, but at the cost of sensitivity and dexterity.
- How important is it to choose powdered medical examination gloves? Traditionally, powdered gloves were easier to put on. However, modern designs include a feature known as chlorination that facilitates putting the gloves on without need for powdering. There is little or no need for powdered gloves these days.
Examination Table Paper1 ProductExamination table paper supplies are an important way for you to reduce the spread of communicable illnesses among patients visiting your medical facility. The paper should act as a barrier to prevent the spread of infection. Some of the features that you should probably look for in choosing your table paper are:
- The paper should be made from a high quality pulp. This will ensure its strength and reduce the risk of tears appearing as the patient changes position on the table.
- The design of the paper should be such as to increase its strength, absorbency, softness (for patient comfort) and quietness.
- The design of the paper should be such as to resist water or fluids soaking through. This will ensure added protection for patients.
Disinfectants & Cleaners13 ProductsDisinfectants & Cleaners are an important line of defense against the spread of disease in your clinic. Together with table examination paper and medical examination gloves, they help to control the risk of spread between patients or from patients to your staff. The three main factors to bear in mind when choosing disinfectants & cleaners for your healthcare facility are:
- What is the contact time of the disinfectant? Hopefully, the disinfectant will hopefully stay wet and in contact with any pathogens that may be present for a sufficiently long period to eliminate them. However, some disinfectants can dry before the pathogens are eliminated, leaving surfaces not fully disinfected. Hence, the shorter the contact time of the disinfectant, the better.
- Will it be damaging to the equipment present in your clinic? The aim here will be to avoid a disinfectant that may damage the surfaces of your equipment.
- How compatible will it be with the cleaning tools you use? Some cleaning tools can actually reduce the effectiveness of a disinfectant. For example, cottons and microfibers can bind with certain types of disinfectants and inhibit their release onto the surface that you are cleaning.
