End of the Year Reminders...

Along with my responsibility to be a great, caring, and loving chiropractor (which I am!, not to mention handsome also) one of my other responsibilities is to remind you all that our bodies need certain preventative tests done to make sure everything is working properly. This is because if the body is working properly outwardly, it doesn't mean that inwardly everything is fine.

Therefore these are your end of the year reminders:
1- If you are of age to have a mammogram and it has been more than 2 years, please set one up for the New Year
2- If you are over 50 years old and haven't had one yet, please set yourself up for a colonoscopy
3- Many people forget how important our skin is. If it has been more than 2 years make an appointment for your dermatologist
4- If you are a guy, get that prostate checked!
5- If you are a gal, go for that OBGYN check up if it has been more than a few years
6- Go for a complete blood check up (including sugar levels)

We get so used to our bodies just doing what it does, we sometimes forget we need to check certain things. Please keep this in mind. 

I want to wish you all a blessed New Years- safe and sound and healthy. Have fun, enjoy and if you need us for anything don't hesitate to call.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Poor Olde Santa's Bones

I was just thinking how abused Santa's body must feel this time of year. Think about it: he's checking lists twice, he's walking up and down the toy factories in the North Pole making sure all is on schedule, he is going up and down chimneys squeezing through all shapes and sizes, and he has to ride around in that uncomfortable sleigh for hours and hours at a time- its exhausting I'm sure.

Imagine how he feels- his tight rigid muscles clamoring for the chiropractor. Aching legs needing to be kneaded.

But no...He doesn't go get adjusted because he is too busy taking care of "everyone else." 

If that is not something I've heard a million times: everyone is so busy doing everything else for everyone else they forget to tend to their needs and end up living with their problems.

So lets all try not to be like Santa and find the time to take care of our chronic spinal issues. The point is that most of the time you don't have to end up living with it if you just give chiropractic a chance. 

Have a safe and glorious holiday with your family and friends. 

Yours in good health,

The Beauty of the Blog

So my son has been helping me with my social media since I am 98% computer "dense." He recently reminded me that this, the blog you are reading now, is our 100th blog entry! I felt really good about that, let me tell you why...

The reason is because what is blogging really? It is a chance for me to talk about different topics and what that really is, is education!

If you are a good, competent caring doctor educating your patients should always be part of your treatment. Teaching your patients about how their bodies work and other health related issues should always be part of what a good doctor does. So blogging has become a wonderful part of my office. I certainly hope that you all have enjoyed reading the blogs. We try to make it informative in a light hearted way and I believe we have succeeded in doing so. 

It gives me lots of pleasure to blog, and with my sons help it looks terrific and is a wonderful way to communicate. Keep on reading, keep on learning and here's to another 100!

We are here for you all the time, its always a pleasure!

 Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Consciousness Raising Thoughts

Just a quick blog to remind everybody that it is the every day ridiculous things we do and the repetition of those things that contribute to most of our spinal problems. So:

1- For all of you stay at home moms and dads- make sure you remember to bend properly to help with the 10,000 times you pick up your children every day
2- Not to pick on the females, but check your pocket books/bags and take out a lot of the stuff you don't need in them. I've seen women's bags as heavy as luggage which can lead to heavy stress on the shoulder/upper back area...
3- You macho men out their...When you are out doing fall chores make sure you do it in moderation. No need to do 15 hours of leaf blowing in one sitting
4- The multitudes of all of you who sit at desks all day at work, GET OFF YOUR TUSHES MORE and move around during the day. Sitting hours at a time is spinal hell
5- Parents, please check your kids back packs. Their is often un-needed weight in them and can contribute to beginnings of spinal/mechanical problems. 

I've told a million patients over the years if we lived on the Moon I'd have to find a new profession since gravity contributes to our spinal issues. Another example of how every day life contributes to our dysfunctional spinal problems. 

So heed these words and take care of yourselves. We are here for you whenever you need us. 

Yours in good health,

Chiro-A Great Treat

Chiropractic is really one of the greatest treats out there. It is available to you all year but I am just reminding you today since Halloween is coming up. The "trick" that continues to be promulgated out there is that you all are made to believe that you have to live with many of your aches, pains, headaches, leg and arm pains, etc etc. The trick that continues to be sold to you is that it is "normal" to have all of these symptoms, so take all this medication for your chronic issues. That is in fact the trick...

Again, the treat is chiropractic! I am not saying that it is the answer to all of human ills. I am saying that the treat of chiropractic is with a little adjusting, watching posture, raising consciousness, watching ergonomics, doing stretching and some resistance training you can incredibly change your life in many ways. That is the treat of chiropractic and we are here for you to open your eyes to that. 

Have a safe Halloween for your and your children!

Yours in good health,

24 and so much more...

When I was just a lad my favorite baseball player was Willie Mays. His number just happens to be 24 so 24 has always been my lucky number. Now, 24 brings so much more meaning at this point in my life.

It goes without saying that time goes by too quickly and we all need to recognize how blessed we are. I feel totally in awe that I have had the special privilege to lay my hands on Chester County residents for 24 years. It seems like only yesterday I opened up my office and didn't know any person in Chester County other than my wife and my almost 3 year old little boy. 

But here we are going into my 25th year- still enthused about helping and changing peoples lives, still humbled how a little bit of chiropractic and a little bit of tender loving care can change peoples lives. 

My new office location is working out great: easy to get to and actually more visible than my old office. So I continue to do what I've done for almost 30 years. I want to thank all of my patients from the early days through today. I never take for granted their business and I will always continue to be the best I can! Thanks again for this glorious opportunity. 

Yours in good health,

Concerning the Pope's Visit...

Very exciting time ahead for Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs as the Pope's visit is upon us. It's been amazing seeing the planning that has been going on lo these past months; traffic planning, bridge planning, transportation issues, etc. These plans have needed to be put in place due to the massive amount of people that want to be apart of this amazing event. 

These masses will be coming to Philadelphia to take advantage of this opportunity to see, or be near, and to hear this holy man and what he has to say to assist in helping this Earth be a better place. 

And so it made me think, sadly though, of the masses of people with chronic pain in their body who do not take advantage of chiropractic care and the help it can give to change a persons life and to add to the quality of that life. 

Their are literally millions of people who live with their chronic pain that take massive amounts of over the counter or prescribed medication as well as have no concept of the potential of chiropractic.

So, I urge the masses, call up the office. Make it a point to sit down and talk about what ails you and give your body a chance to get rid of the pain you have lived with for many years. You owe that to yourself and Resnick Chiropractic is always here to help.

God Bless everyone. Yours in good health,

Our Labours Effect our Bodies...

First of all, I can't possibly believe Labor Day weekend is upon us. Is the summer really over or am I dreaming? I hope the summer was fun and safe for you and all of your families. 

Just to remind ya'll that as I've said in the past, our daily activities/things we do repeatedly day after day are the number one causes of our spinal difficulties. It has been that way for 1,000's of years. So just to remind you:

1- If your job is sitting at a desk all day, check your ergonomics- make sure you sit up straight, make sure your work station is properly set up for maximizing posture, don't sit for more then 45 minutes, get up and stretch, etc.
2- If you are a laborer and work in construction/contracting/etc. make sure you wear knee pads when working with equipment, use a step stool for less strain on the back.
3- If you are a business man/woman and travel a lot- stop and stretch when you can, bring a pillow on flights to cause less strain on your neck.
4- If you are a housewife/house husband, remember to use your knees when bending no matter how much something weighs. If you are cleaning your house make sure you break it up to not do one thing for too long of a time.

This is just a friendly reminder to re-iterate to think of these things during our daily work. Our work and the repetition of it is a major factor for spinal issues. Again, have a joyous and safe Labor Day and best of luck with going back to school for everyone. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Blogging's a Blast!!!

Just a short communique to thank ya'll for spending your time and reading the incredible intellectual, informative, and sometimes silly information that we try to convey to you. 

We have been blogging for the last few years and the response has been quite gratifying and satisfying. A huge part of being a good doctor is educating, taking the time out to explain things so patients learn about their bodies and pass that on to their family, friends, and co-workers. 

Blogging allows us to send out information in a brief yet impactful way and of course I always try to put a smile on our readers faces. 

I would also like to take the time to thank my son Alan who is my social media guru and helps with all of our blogging/Facebook/etc. etc. He is doing a great job and he is a heck of a guy. 

Always remember and never forget that we are always here for you to help, to answer questions, to direct you where you need to go for your health needs, and to be helpful in any other way. 

Make the last few weeks of your Summer (unbelievable to say that!) fun filled and joyful.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Grandma is Visiting Again...

So, Grandma (my mother) is visiting us again in glorious Chester County. As I told you in an earlier blog from this year, she turned 90 in April. It takes her roughly a half hour to walk from our kitchen to the TV room. It takes her about 10-15 tries to get up from sitting on the dining room chairs. When she watches TV, you can hear it from across the street (when she leaves all our ears ring for days). I have to repeat myself so often I get bi-lateral TMJ pain that lasts for days.

Please don't take this the wrong way- of course I feel blessed she is here. However, when I observe her it is just amazing to think of all the organs and muscles and bones that have been working so hard lo these many years. An incredible testament to the durability of the human frame.

I implore you all don't take for granted your frame. Do the things you need to do to help it along. I don't want it to take you guys 45 minutes to walk from the kitchen to the TV area to watch TV (although that is not such a horrible thing).

Stretch, exercise, get adjusted, watch your posture, and be healthy. If you do all those things then you can help your body deal with living on earth.

Here is to all the GRANDMA'S out there. God Bless Them All!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Follow Up to our Independence Day Blog...

I felt this was important enough to reiterate this information.

In the June 15th, 2015 Time Magazine, the cover story concerns the powerful pain killers that are being taken and creating a horrible addiction crisis in America- in fact they say the worst addiction crisis America has ever seen.

In this article, it states that an estimated 100 Million Americans suffer from chronic pain and a quarter of them say it is severe enough to limit their quality of life according to the Institutes of Medicine.

In an article that I found online last week from Health Day News dated Monday, July 13th 2015 it urged caution to popular pain killers. This was after a warning from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The article states that people who regularly reach for widely used pain killers like Ibuprofen and Naproxen may need to think carefully before they pop those pills, hard experts say. The article continues to say that their is mounting evidence that chronic use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can raise a persons risk of heart attack and stroke.

Believe me, I am not saying chiropractic is the answer to all of these 100 million Americans in pain. I am saying that with all of the new evidence of addiction and heart/stroke issues, if you do have chronic pain please call your local chiropractor, get to the office, and lets talk about it. Their are certainly lots of neuro-muscular skeletal pain that getting adjusted can potentially lessen and help.

I implore all of you whether it is you, your family, friends, or co-workers to think about this. It is important and Resnick Chiropractic is here to help.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Your Independence- It's Up to You

Last week my daughter had some funky skin issue, she is all better now! I had to go to a few different pharmacies to pick up some topical goop for her. I had to go to 3 different pharmacies. It was unbelievable, but I've seen it before, how overfilled all of the bins were from A-Z with prescribed medication. Don't get me wrong, some of them are lifesaving- but it is time to grab your independence from the pharmaceutical industry and not just except what the medical community tells you often. What they tell you is "You have to live with you aches, pains, headaches, back pain, etc., etc."

Fortunately, so much of our chronic problems can be helped with chiropractic. The makers of Advil certainly don't want to promote chiropractic because their will be less chronic pain. Grab on to your independence from constantly taking pain medication for things that quite possibly and very often can be helped with a combination of posture education, exercising, better ergonomics at work, getting adjusted, yoga, massaging, good nutrition and positive mental attitudes. 

As Independence Day approaches, lets all just raise our consciousness about this and let our bodies do the healing with a little help from chiropractic and other conservative approaches that are easily available. IT'S UP TO YOU!

Always remember and never forget- "If you have a fifth on the fourth, you may not be able to go fourth on the fifth"

Rejuvenation and Mother Nature

I walked outside of my house a few days ago and I was looking at our Pachysandra and it stopped me in my tracks. I was remembering how pathetic they looked as this past winter wore on. They really looked like they were dead and just never going to come back. But, their is this incredible force that we don't see and whether it's a universal being or mother nature- the Pachysandra came back and looked great. UNBELIEVABLE. 

And yet, their they are. In full bloom and looking grand. This invisible force that I am talking about also keeps our bodies going- non stop heart beating, new cells formed every few months, kidneys and liver working...they just keep on rejuvenating themselves to a degree. The innate wisdom of the body is mind boggling. 

As a chiropractor we always are in tune with this wisdom of the body: adjusting the spine and helping the bio-mechanics helps the innate wisdom of the body to function at a higher level. This is something that all of us take for granted but this miracle is a daily phenomenon in all of Gods creatures. 

So, take a few minutes today to contemplate the wonders of your human body. Please allow chiropractic to assist in the wonder. It is a blessing to deliver this to you all. Keep on enjoying the summer!

Yours in good health,

A Schlepping We Will Go...

When Mr. Caveman came back from a day of hunting Brontosauruses, he handed the meat to the Mrs. and then said to her " I need the heating pad, my back is killing me." When Mrs. Claudius finished doing the laundry for the family, she had to sit down for a half hour because her upper back was throbbing with pain. When Johnny comes home from school today and takes off his school bag/backpack that weighs 85 pounds, he needs to lie down for a few minutes because his mid-shoulder blade region is talking to him.

As you can see through the 1,000s of years that we have roamed the earth, fortunately the major percentage of human spinal suffering is caused by the day to day normal activities we do and the schlepping that we have in our lives all the time. 

This recurring schlepping causes muscle, mechanical, and functional inflammation as well as irritation, etc. etc. etc. 

So run, don't walk, to your chiropractor and allow him or her to rid your body from the "schlepping syndrome." With a little bit of effort, a little bit of repetition, and a little bit of education chiropractic can be a life changer.

Always remember, Never forget

Is it really Memorial Day 2015 approaching or am I dreaming? Well, it really is here and it makes me think of the meaning of the holiday. There is no question that many of us take for granted what this holiday stands for- which is being appreciative and thanking those who allowed us to live with the freedoms in this country that we have. The blessings that we have and the freedoms that govern this country are due to the sacrifices of the men and women that fought the wars to give us the great country we live in today and all the wonderful things that are awarded to us. 

This mentality is something that we overlook and it makes me think of how much we all take for granted how our bodies continue to work- the heart beats, the cells replicate, the brain continues to function, and we move forward in this constant "Homeostasis." Meaning- we go about our daily lives and for most of us thankfully our bodies function on a very high level without us even thinking about it. 

So I am asking all of you to always remember and never forget to count your blessings, appreciate those that serve and have served our country, and appreciate the innate wisdom that serves our bodies to keep us moving forward and to live the lives that we have imagined.

Happy Memorial Day!

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

You Just Never Know...

I just recently heard the news about the fire in Downingtown, PA that is just a few minutes from my home. We all certainly pray that no one was hurt and that all of the businesses return to being open as soon as possible. 

In this crazy life of ours you just never know when bad will happen or tragedy will strike or even bad health will occur. That is why it's so important to enjoy and be grateful for each day. To relate this to getting adjusted you can feel fine and not have any outward problems but you just never know when your spine or your disks or your muscles or your joints will "freak out" and start talking to you. 

So I urge all of you to be proactive with your health on all levels and certainly with your neuromuscular skeletal system. Get in and get checked, because you just never know...

Again, lets all send our love and thoughts out to the businesses and people that were affected by the Downingtown fire. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff

Dr. Rays Mom Turns 90!!!

It is amazing to think that my mother just turned 90 on April 28th. Its also amazing to think what it entails to do what needs to be done to get to that age.

...And yet some people need to do a lot of things to sustain themselves to get to that age, and other people are just born with incredible genes and they live to old age without to much fanfare.

I implore you all- don't lean back on your genes, because we don't really know how those alone will sustain us. So, do these things to increase the odds of living to 90 with dignity and optimal function:
-Exercise regularly
- Eat a well rounded, colorful diet
- Keep moving
- GET ADJUSTED- my favorite!
- Keep being social
- Promote good mental attitude about life

It is amazing that she is 90. I feel blessed to still have her here. I feel blessed to have all of you so I can continue delivering loving chiropractic.

God bless all of you!

Unfortunately the pounding of everyday life, the ups and downs, the falls, the repetition, the shlepping, the shoveling, the raking, etc. - is a real pain in the ass...LITERALLY! But, alas it is also a real joint changer. The longer we exist on this crazy earth of ours the more Arthur-itis, or really arthritis...or proper term- osteo-arthritis, our joints obtain. It is a natural cause of living on earth for many humans. Can't really prevent it but loads to do to assist it.

By far the number one thing we can do to combat these joint degenerative changes is to (keep them moving)- stretching, strengthening, and exercising. Hmmm..their is something else. Oh right, GET ADJUSTED! The essence behind the delivery of the adjustment is mechanical motion which is the number one help for arthritic joints. 

So come one, come all with your arthritic needs. Tell yours friends and family. Lets get those joints adjusted.

Thank GOD spring is here!

The "NERVE" of Chiropractic

The premise behind manipulative care is that the everyday repetition of our lives- sitting, bending, lifting, sneezing, etc.- creates mechanical problems between the vertebrae and the disks, tendons, ligaments and everything else. That is why getting adjusted is so wonderful (in my humble opinion, as well as many others). The % of patients that improve with chiropractic is incredible- that is documented and is a reality. 

But, one often disregarded part of chiropractic is that we have 31 pairs of spinal nerves. These nerves exit from the spinal cord in between the vertebrae and then meander to every part of our body. Therefore, their is an absolute correlation between getting adjusted and nerve health. I can't tell you how much nerve health happens from getting adjusted because its hard to quantify. Because of the proximity of these nerve fibers to the vertebrae, their has to be a severe relationship. That is also a big part of getting adjusted. 

So get your gluteals in to the office and get adjusted. Your body needs it for multiple reasons. 

Happy Passover & Easter...

Yours in good health,

One of the most amazing structures in the human body among so many others is the Spinal Disk. The vertebral disk in the spine is a unique and interesting structure. By far the most important purpose of the disk is to act as shock absorbers between the adjacent vertebrae. They also act as ligaments to hold the vertebrae of the spine together while acting as joints to allow for slight mobility of the spine. 

Their is a total of 23 disks- from the time we start walking they become overworked and underpaid. 

Think about it: the pounding, the stresses, the repetitive forces of daily life that act upon these disks is incredible to think of. Because of the daily abuse our disks overtime get dehydrated and thinner which can cause problems with a decent % of human beings.

So what can we do to help these amazing structures? The best thing to do is keep mobile, keep exercising, get adjusted, be conscious of posture, watch your ergonomics at work, drink enough water daily to hydrate the disks, etc. 

Please keep this in mind- our disks are important to our health. 
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the office.

Spring Time Warriors...

We all know the expression "weekend warriors," this refers to all the people that aren't super active generally speaking but on the weekends play three rounds of golf, work in the garden for hours, play tennis for 8 sets, etc. Than Sunday evening rolls around and they can't walk, they can't talk, and they are in pain from something they strained. We all know that is silly to do, but we all do it because we are all silly human beings. 

"Spring time warriors "really refer to the same thing. We have been sedentary, most of us, during the crazy winter months and now that the weather is slowing starting to be normal, we are raring to go! So, we start off with too much. We don't slowly ease into it. Almost like New Year resolutions- it really does feel like newness which is what Spring time really is. 

I implore all of you when it comes to starting up again whether its exercising, walking, outdoor cleanup, planting, sports, etc, to TAKE IT SLOW. Don't overdue it in the beginning. I have seen too many people over all these years with their zeal to get out and enjoy the non frigid weather and they do too much too quick. 

Please keep this in mind. Enjoy the last few weeks of this "Polar Vortex Winter." Be safe out their.

Any questions don't hesitate to call the office.

Keep Moving, Stay Healthy

Spinal manipulative therapy has been around for 1,000's of years. In chiropractic we call it an "adjustment." The whole premise behind the adjustment is to assist the body in functioning and the adjustment helps the body move. Most human beings that have neuro muscular skeletal conditions acquire those conditions from the repetition of daily life. The bending, lifting, sneezing, carrying, sitting, mowing, etc. etc.- these are the causes of our spinal difficulties.
Very small % of spinal difficulties are caused by disease or pathology, thankfully.

What I am saying is that I need all of you to keep moving because movement is what keeps the body healthy. Whether it is stretching, exercising, working out, running, etc. All of these things have multiple benefits but the biggest benefit is when you move the body has a better chance of being healthy for all of its systems. Getting adjusted is just one of the ways to assist the body in functioning correctly.

Please try to remember to stretch in the morning like all of God's creatures do. Any animal that has a spinal column should do some stretching in the morning. If you have a pet at home, the first thing the pet does in the morning is stretch!

As Valentine's Day approaches, one of the best things you can do for your loved ones is preach- KEEP MOVING! We are here for your spinal needs anytime. Please have a loving Valentine's Day.

Yours in good health,

What's Super for your Arthritic Problems? CHIRO...

Happy Super Bowl Everyone. This fun entertainment spectacle brings lifting of your wings to your mouths and sitting watching the game, drinking your cans of beer with your head back into extension, even tossing the old pig skin around kicking up old shoulder pain. All of these things can be connected too- Osteoarthritis. 

Their are different forms of arthritis- Osteo being by far the most common. Unfortunately, over time and repetitive usage our joints become less fluid. The joint spaces decrease, the disks get thinner, the bone spurs grow, the cartilage lessens, etc. etc. (This is not to bum you out, this is to put a smile on your face). 

Not that chiropractic is the answer to take away Arthritis, but the number one thing to do to lessen the effect of these arthritic changes- is "Keep them moving." 

Stretching, exercising, walking, moving- this is what is best for the arthritic joint. So, it goes without saying but I will say it anyways, chiropractic should be included in any ones treatment for their arthritic symptoms because the essence behind chiropractic is helping with function and movement. 

Please call the office if you or anyone you know or work with is battling with arthritic symptoms and is not sure what to do. We are here to help.

Yours in good health,

Walk Softly and Carefully

Thankfully so far this winter has not been anything like the last winter from HELL! You never know what can happen, so I just want to remind everybody:

Please continue to walk with care and watch your steps. Unfortunately I know a patient who stepped out of his car, a little ice patch was right below, and he slipped and tore a ligament in his knee. So please when getting in and out of the cars- be careful, have sound footing and pay attention. When you walk out of your homes, check the sidewalk to make sure that it is not iced up.

I can't tell you how many patients I've seen over the years that have hurt themselves from winter weather and needed either my care, emergency care, or orthopedic care from injuries.

So, please walk softly and carefully.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff
