Watch your Sitting...

We may have chatted about this before (my blog memory is not as good as it used to be!) but it certainly is important enough to reiterate...

If you have a chance go online and look up some articles concerning "Sitting is the new Smoking."
There have been reports and studies that have proven that the amount we sit these days is detrimental to our health on many levels, not just a stiff back or achy legs.

Here is a list of some of the negative aspects of too much sitting:
1- Greater risk of cancer
2- Increase in obesity
3- Increase in diabetes
4- Susceptible to muscle issues
5- Higher risk of depression
6- Higher risk of circulatory issues

I know this sounds scary since between work, TV watching, etc. we all sit a lot. Please be conscious of this and work on moving more to offset the negative effects of sitting. Of course, getting adjusted with chiropractic care is another thing to incorporate to help the body move better.

We are always here to answer your questions. Happy Father's Day to one and all.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Thank you from the bottom of my heart...

I am finally done with my eye surgeries, that is because I only have 2 eyes. If I had more eyes I would probably need more cataract surgery. Any who, I sincerely want to thank all who sent out good thoughts via email or messages to me. I really do appreciate it.

We all have to continue to be their for each other in this crazy, nonstop world we live in. If you have any eye problems, please don't hesitate to call the office and I can refer you to the facility I went to as they were really great. 

Keep on taking care of yourselves. We are always here for you when you need chiropractic care. Keep on spreading the healing powers of chiropractic to friends, family and co-workers. And of course, to all you "Mother's"-have a blessed, peaceful and loving Mother's Day.

Yours in good health, 

Dr. Ray and Staff

The NCAA Tournament and Our Lives

As many of you know, we are in the midst and the tail end of the college basketball championship tournament. When the tournament begins, their is 68 teams that make the tournament and then using different parameters the teams are seeded- for example the #1 seed plays the #16 season, the #1 seed team being a very good team and the #16 seeded team being usually not as good. Usually the #1 seeds win and move on through the tournament, sorry Virginia...

The premise of the whole tournament is driven by a hierarchy of seeding. As I was watching the games this year, I was thinking that many of us without really contemplating it have a hierarchy of physical and mental health issues that we need to deal with. Unfortunately many of us push down what we need for mental health and physical health to accommodate the other important parts of our life that we need to deal with. Therefore- we end up being less healthy in both a mental and physical way.

I can't tell you how many times patients come into the office who haven't been in for longer then they should and they say "I just got so busy with work, family, etc. that I put my health on the lower level of importance.."

I implore everyone to please keep this in mind. Appropo to the NCAA tournament we have to seed our priorities in life. If we don't work on what we really need to do for our mental and physical health, it will be easy to slip into poor choices and bad health. Please, if that is happening to you or your loved ones, address it and change this. We are here to help you with that, it is very important.

Give us a call if you need anything and GO NOVA!!!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and staff

Ya Just Never Know...

So here we are yesterday minding our business, being nice to people, kissing babies, walking old lady's across the street, trying to do nice things and minding our business and not bothering a soul. Then...we were told that we have to deal with a Nor'easter again and power outages again, and inconveniences again. What the hell is going on?..

So as I was snowed in today (because I had to cancel patients), I was thinking that our health is the same kind of dubiousness. We can be minding our own business and trying to be nice while feeling healthy and then the next day we are diagnosed with some life threatening disease or some painful condition, when two days ago we were feeling fine.

This is the precariousness of our existence. So therefore lets all please try to be as healthy as we can and have our preventative tests done and be mindful of our blessings. 

Stay warm!
Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

The Championship Eagles

Watching the game this past Sunday was super fantastic. To see the joy that the fans showed when the game was over was just outstanding. It is amazing the depth of emotion that gets affected by fans who have been long standing Eagle worshipers, Generation after generation of Eagles fans that were starved for a championship.

To witness it was a joyous experience. It reminded me how connected our mental health is to our physical function. There is an absolute connection between the mind and the body and often Doctors forget to include that in their healthcare of patients. I can almost guarantee you that their are going to be thousands of Philadelphians who are going to recognize that they feel better physically since the birds won the title. They won't connect the two or perhaps some will but the connection is absolute and has been part of humanity for thousands of years. 

So, I submit to all of you to continue to work on your mental health as it will directly affect in a positive way your physical health.
Enjoy the post game elation. No one can ever take this away from us as we enjoy basking in the sunlight of a championship. Be careful and enjoy celebrating.


Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
