If You're Wrapping, Heed These Words...

I'm not trying to be funny (though I can be a funny guy) and I'm not trying to be silly (but my kids always tell me I'm ridiculously silly), BUT…

Always remember and never forget that sitting on the floor while wrapping your holiday gifts is really tough and not nice to your spine- especially your low back. Over the years I remind everybody to wrap the gifts sitting at a table with correct posture. I know it sounds funny but I have seen a bunch of patients over the years right after the holidays complaining and kvetching about increased spinal pain because they sat on the floor for hours and forgot to listen to the words of wisdom from Doctor Ray. 

The season has its own stresses to begin with, why add to them by not treating your body healthfully. 

I know its fun sitting on the floor with the kids wrapping the gifts near the tree or Hanukkah bush, but please heed these words. 

Have a joyous holiday season and give extra hugs to all of your loved ones.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Thanks for the Memories...

It is unbelievable to me when I think of how I have been delivering chiropractic care to Chester County for going on 25 years. The time has gone by so quickly and it really has been a privilege to take care of all of you this past almost quarter century. 

I am thankful for you all to have allowed me to, through chiropractic, help you and raise the quality of your lives. For that truly is what chiropractic is all about. Assisting the body in its natural desire to heal itself is my number one goal. Having the body work properly and allow all humans to live the lives they have imagined is also what fulfills me. 

Once again, thanks a-bunch. Please have a glorious Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones, drive carefully wherever you are going, and always remember and never forget that Dr. Ray is here to help. 

Happy Turkey Day!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Extremely Important Extremity Info...

Just wanted to restate the obvious although many of us don't realize how important spinal health is to the function of our arms and legs. Their are times when certain problems in the arms and legs have to do with a circulatory deficiency or a blood sugar problem or some physiological dysfunction. 

Fortunately, the major percentage of the time when people complain of arm or leg problems is absolutely due to spinal involvement. This is because the spinal nerves begin at the vertebrae and branch off into the arms and legs among other areas. 

Therefore I want to remind ya'll if you are having tingling, numbness, or weakness in your arms, legs, hands, or feet the most conservative place to start and common place to help would be calling your local chiropractor. 

Speak to you before Thanksgiving!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Treat or Treat

As October 31st approaches, I believe it is a good time to remind everybody to treat or bodies nicely and to treat our bodies to the tests that we should do for preventative care. Therefore I say:

1- Make sure you get to the dentist at least once a year for checkup and exam (twice a year cleaning is smartest, its worth the $)
2- Colonoscopy- with no family history and no problems, please have it done by 50 years of age. Any history in the family, don't wait and get to a doctor
3- Men please treat yourself to a prostate exam: very important and smart to do
4- Gals treat yourself to a mammogram: you'd be surprised how many women never have had an exam or it has been years since they had an exam
5- Everyone: treat yourself to getting your blood taken- check cholesterol, liver, sugar, etc. etc. 
6- And of course it goes without saying....Treat yourself to a terrific chiropractic adjustment and assessment- our spines need to be maintained

So have a safe Halloween, take care of the kids, and have a Baby Ruth on me (my favorite candy). 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Headaches & Chiro

Unfortunately chronic headaches affect too many people. Often, changing seasons can contribute to exacerbations in headache frequency. Certainly contributing factors to headaches can be: increased stress, strain from daily activities, kids not listening to you, traffic, and cranky spouses. 

There is also one amazing contributing factor to repeating headaches that most people that suffer from headaches don't even consider. The upper cervical or (neck) vertebrae and the muscles that mechanically help function in that area support the base of our skull and the constant abuse of that area from everyday movement is a major contributing factor to recurring headaches.

During the course of my 25 years in practice in Chester County, helping headaches has been a consistent and wonderful part of my practice. I urge you all to refer anyone you know that does have headache problems to our office. Of course, any questions that people may have please remind them to call the office so we can answer them. 

Happy Fall...and Happy (Jewish) New Year to all!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

The musculo-skeletal, mechanical and functional benefit of chiropractic or spinal manipulative therapy has been well documented for centuries. The benefit that human beings have received from this hands on approach has been consistent and evident for many years. The relationship between our joints and the soft tissue that helps the joints function is GOD given and chiropractic uses that innate wisdom our bodies have to help it work better to a optimal level. 

The neurological component of chiropractic is really quite simple- we have 31 pairs of spinal nerves that exit off the spinal chord through little spaces that are created between the vertebrae in our spinal column. These spaces are called foramina- our spinal nerves exit through these and branch off to send nerve signals to every part of our body including our extremities, organs, skin, and everything else in between.

So, each time you receive an adjustment you are receiving benefit to the neuor-musculo-skeletal function of your body. That is the power of a chiropractic adjustment!
A person may not feel their nervous system improving from each adjustment, since what drives most people in to see me is some kind of symptom or pain. 

But, TRUST ME- the transmission of your nervous system incredibly benefits each time I lay my hands on your bodies. 

It truly is a blessing and I feel fortunate to be your chiropractor.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Our Children Have Spines, Also.

First of all, is it really September or am I dreaming. Didn't the "winter from hell" just end, and they are calling for a worse winter? Well, we will all have to help each other as we always do. 

We sometimes forget that our children have spines also that are neglected, overworked, abused, and repetitively strained. 

As school begins, or began already, I implore you all to bring in your children for a complimentary spinal exam. It is easy to forget that there spines are overloaded. The amount of problems I have seen in the past 10 years due to "the book bags from hell"is astounding. Fortunately, some schools have gotten double books so kids don't have to constantly bring home their books. Still, it is a problem. It affects the posture and therefore function of mechanics of the vertebrae which can lead to further problems as our children get older. 

Please bring them in, my pleasure to check them. I implore all my patients that are parents to check their kids book bags and make sure they are not bringing home more then they need. Easy to do and important to follow up with. 

See you soon in the office.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Summer is Almost Gone...

Is it really August 16th today or am I dreaming? 
Didn't the "winter from hell" just end or am I dreaming?
It is amazing- time just has a way of whizzing by. It's so easy to lose focus on all the blessings we have. Certainly please always remember and never forget the blessing we all have with our amazing human bodies. It just keeps on working, the cells keep on rejuvenating, the skin/hair/heart/organs keep on working- it's GOD's plan or at least universal intelligence, mother nature and innate wisdom of our bodies. DO WE TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED OR WHAT!

Please appreciate the wonders of our bodies and continue to always help it along with good diet, exercise, chiropractic, timely Doctor checkups, fooling around, and other activities. 

Have a joyous rest of the summer. Please remember the office has moved to Fairfield Shopping Center in Exton, PA. We continue to look forward to seeing ya'll in our new office!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Forever "Not So" Young

I direct the following words of wisdom to my children's generation. My son is 26 and my daughter is 23. They are referred to as the Millennials or Generation Y (Why Generation Y- I have no idea). It is not my intention to bum you guys out but it is my responsibility to remind all you Millennials that between time, gravity, and repetition of our daily lives- your bodies will eventually start to "talk back to you." 

I just want to send this out to the Generation Y-ers to raise your consciousness about preventative thinking for your bodies. Make sure you do a decent amount of stretching before you work out hard. If you do hurt yourself, get yourself checked out to make sure nothing is really wrong. Don't wait until you have spinal issues, give your chiropractor a call to get checked out- get your posture checked. Make sure you are eating a varied nutritional diet. 

I totally understand these are things that you guys wouldn't think about because your young still. When you get to be in your 30's, the body starts to change and I want you guys to be ready for that. 

Please don't hesitate to call. We could talk about this and I could give you exercise and postural stretches to do. Learn about chiropractic and adjustments even if you are feeling ok.
These are important things and it is my responsibility to remind you about this as I do with my own children.

Continue to have a wonderful and safe summer. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Keep Safe During the Summer

With all the summer activities comes potential injuries, so just a short shout out to everyone to please take care of yourself and your loved ones when your out and about: swimming, doing ocean activities, and everything else that can hurt us. 

Always remember and never forget a little forethought and some common sense can really help in preventing some mishaps. 

So go forth and enjoy your summer!

Yours in good health,

CH-CH-CH-CH Changes!

Changing has always been difficult for most human beings, even when we know it is the right thing to do. I want to reiterate my big change that I have done recently which is a combination of moving my office (within Exton) and downsizing a bit also. It feels good to be all comfy and cozy in my new place. Please come in and say hello, I would enjoy that!

Here are some ch-changes I recommend for y'all:
1- If you are taking too much daily medication for your chronic symptoms, it's time to change.
2- If your not listening to your body from your "weekend warrior abuse", it's time to change.
3- If your doing outside house chores for too many hours and not spreading out the work, it's time to change. 
4- If your not hugging and kissing your spouse and children enough, it's time to change. 

I'm thrilled to still be in Exton, PA and blessed to continue to give you wonderful chiropractic care. 

Thanks again!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Headaches and Chiro

One of the most frustrating aspects of being a chiropractor is so many people don't realize how much it can change their lives for the better!!!

A prime example of this is chiropractic and headaches. There are literally millions of people that suffer with headaches for most of their lives and normal medical approach does nothing to eradicate the cause of the headaches. 

Most people will take some form of medication to help lessen a headache but not to assist in getting to the cause!!!

Our first vertebrae is located just below the base of the skull. The combination of using our arms a million times a day/turing our heads in all directions a millions times a day/and the neck muscles coustonatly supporting our skull creates this massive combination of neuromuscular skeletal dysfunction that is by far the most COMMON CAUSE FOR OUR HEADACHE PROBLEMS. 

I implore you all if you have headache problems or if you know a friend/family/worker that does, you must tell them to call the office so we can have a chance to change their lives. Getting adjusted, learning about posture, and watching ergonomics will all change the function of our body and help immeasurably with our headaches. (The headaches you may get from your husband/wife/kids- Sorry, I can't help you with that!)

Have a great Easter and Passover...

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

PS- Don't forget, your kids have little spines also. Make sure they bend their knees properly to pick up all of those Easter Eggs!

I finally had a chance to look at my property around my house post the ridiculous ice storm of 2014. It is incredible how much debris is strewn about. Now comes the cleanup (which I am not looking forward too).

So, I just want to communicate to everyone how important it is to be careful when you are dealing with your property and all the work that goes into it. Please lift properly with your legs, if you do use a chainsaw to cut down falling trees be extra careful (I am scared to use a chainsaw), and please evaluate properly: if you can drag some things fine, but if it is too heavy please seek help.

Everybody has more then usual cleanup to do, I just want you all to be careful. If you have questions about anything, don't hesitate to give the office a call. I am here for you all the time.

Yours in good health,

OH!--Those Aching Hands and Feet

It goes without saying how incredibly amazing, and super-fantastic chiropractic is for our spinal problems. That's because the major majority of neck/back/pelvic issues are caused by every day life (activities of daily living). So, manipulative therapy (chiropractic) is great for those problems! 

Our hands and feet are made up of (like the spine) many bones which create many joints. In everyday life these hands and feet get abused and many of the aches and pains we get in our hands and feet are caused by mechanical dysfunction. 

Therefore I say to those of you who have chronic or acute pain- run to the chiropractor. Give us a call or email. Using gentle extremity techniques, chiropractic really does an incredible job on hand and foot problems. I have seen over the years so many people benefit from the hands on approach to hand and foot pain. 

As usual, we are here to help. Enjoy the last few weeks of winter- THANK GOD!!!

Yours in good health,

A Stressful Winter

These past few months with all the scraping, shoveling, crazy driving, and walking on snow takes its toll on our bodies by increasing stress which produces chemicals that can be irritant to our joints and tissues. So, another reason (there are so many) to get adjusted is to help our joints function from the effects of stress on our body. Getting adjusted helps to flush out chemicals that are created by stress that irritate our body. 
So please give the office a call, get in, and lets take care of these effects of this crazy, ridiculous winter we have experienced. 
It goes without saying, but please be careful walking on snow, shoveling, and lifting snow. Keep your heads up: SPRING IS COMING SOON!

Yours in good health, 

Dr. Ray and Staff

The Winter of our Discontent

This winter of 2014 continues to be a pain in the A--! Just received power in my house-I hope you all get back your power as soon as possible. Walking around can be so dangerous! I implore all of you to watch your step, walk carefully, even get out of your cars slowly. (One of our patients stepped out of his car, slipped, and tore his ACL from twisting the knee so badly) Be Careful!

Every step needs to be done with caution. Of course, if you twist or strain anything please give us a call so we can check it out. If it is an injury that I think needs an orthopedic opinion, I will give you names of great doctors in the area.

Safety is so important. Please drive carefully and slowly (I keep on telling my son to keep good distance between cars).

It really is very dangerous and I want everyone to stay healthy.

We will talk to you soon!

Yours in good health,

Chiropractic: A Wellness Model

After being blessed to be able to practice chiropractic for the last 28 years, I've seen it all!!!

Fortunately, 99.9999% of pain and spinal problems is not caused by pathology or something out of the ordinary. Fortunately, it almost all the time is caused by "activities of daily living"- meaning bending, lifting, coughing, fooling around, picking up the kids, baking , vacuuming, etc, etc. Because of the fact, chiropractic continues to be an amazing help for human beings. These activities of daily living may not manifest its symptoms all the time- there can be underlying irritations that are under the surface. Because of this; chiropractic wellness care/maintenance care/preventative care is as beneficial as chiropractic acute care. 

Therefore I implore you all to not just wait until you are in the grips of death pain, for there are so many more benefits of chiropractic then just that. 

Start the year off right and get your spine checked: trust me, you'll be glad that you did.

Yours in good health, 

Dr. Ray and Staff
