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,

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
