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,

Dr. Ray and Staffa

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
