Get it Checked!!!

Recently one of the Philadelphia 76ers was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. This is a condition when ones arm may be weak or tingling or numb while not working properly as well which can be due to nerves that are being irritated in front of the shoulder underneath our chest muscles and other muscles. Fortunately, with good therapy and treatment odds are he will be much improved. We certainly all wish the best for him.

You never know when your feeling something whether its in fact an issue or maybe nothing at all. My best advice is to have it checked so you can rule out if its something. Being properly informed, taking action and being proactive are all ways to stay ahead of the game. Because again, you just never know...

Really want to wish everyone a joyous holiday season. Be safe, enjoy your loved ones and have a Happy Holidays. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Chiro Fear

Yesterday I had an experience in my office that unfortunately I have had many, many times since 1991 since I opened my practice up in Exton. The experience I am referring too is a new patient making an appointment, coming in and expressing fear toward their first chiropractic visit. It's not an infrequent thing as I have said. This fear that people encounter is often from their family doctor saying "Don't go to the chiropractor" but with no reasoning behind it. 

The other big time fear is  generated by pharmaceutical companies that advertise all the time about the aches and pains we have being normal from life, stress and the like. They implore us to continue taking 10 million Advil or other meds per year to help with the pain.

Believe me when I tell you this-so many of these patients like the recent patient I had after a little bit of chiropractic and tender love and care say, and I have heard this 10 million times also, "Boy, I feel so much better after my adjustment. I wish I would of come years ago." Of course the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to come because chiropractic always tries to take away the cause of a problem, and if the cause is taken away then the need to medicate is also taken away. 

I can go on and on with this nauseous conversation because it angers me. Please always remember and never forget that we are here for you to explain and deliver wonderful chiropractic care that most of the time changes people's lives. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Get your Tush Right!

Their have been many articles written in the recent years about how detrimental to our health sitting can be if done millions of hours a week. Unfortunately for many jobs we have in the workforce these days as well as laziness, the amount of time we sit has increased incredibly. If you go online and look up articles that are titled "Sitting is the new smoking" you will find lots of info concerning that and it is unsettling to read about how unhealthy sitting is.

So I just wanted to go through the best position to sit in that will decrease how negative sitting can be for the human body.

So here goes: If you imagine that we all have tails like lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) what you want to do is sit so your tail is behind your body and not crunched up under your tush. When we sit if you have your legs about 12 inches apart and then push your tush back so it is behind your spine not curled under - this is the most absolute healthy way of sitting. 

So again, push your tush when sitting down-slide it behind your spine as if your tail is hanging down the back of the chair...

This is by far the most healthy way of sitting and best for spinal health. If you have any "push your tush sitting method questions" please do not hesitate to call the office as we are always here for you.
Keep on having a safe summer (what is left of it).

Yours in good health,
