As the weekend holiday looms the hospitals, emergency rooms and local clinics are all getting ready for the onslaught. We humans have a tendency to do silly things on this holiday, and often silly things lead to an array of injuries. Whether it's from fireworks, surfing, wave running, beach activities, boardwalking, etc. etc. the 4th of July weekend is always filled with mishaps.
So I urge you all to be smart, keep thinking about what you do, listen to your bodies and if you feel that something is aggravating your body stop doing it.
I also want to take this time to wish everyone a safe and glorious holiday weekend. Wear your masks if where you go asks you too. For those that have not been vaccinated, consider this weekend a good time to do so if you wish. Enjoy and be careful.
Remember we are here for you in office when you need us. And of course...
Always remember and never forget- "If you have a fifth on the fourth, you may not be able to go forth on the fifth."
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
