Happy New Year


By now, we’ve done given up on at least 50% of our resolutions and trying to figure out what the heck we’re going to do with leftover black eye peas (not the dude Fergie and will.i.am ghosted, but the legume you eat once a year because grandma said so). New Year New Me? Nope, still the same ruggedly handsome son-of-a-gun I’ve always been. There was something new. In 20 years of practice, I’ve never taken more than 1 or at most 2 sick days in a row (there was a…

Happy Holidays


Just wanted to drop a quick note wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season & New Year. As usual, it got here before we knew it or were ready (even though it happens at the exact same time every year for at least the last 2000 +/- years). Susquehanna Spine & Rehab news: If you haven’t been in, we are missing a wall! Our lost equipment, I was promised, for the umpteenth time, will be arriving this week. For real this time. Hope you all get a chance to…

Daily Dose of Fish Oil


October 2021. The US Preventative Services Task Force (the official name of ‘them’ and ‘they’) are saying put that daily aspirin away. A daily regimen of low-dose aspirin to most people at high risk of a first heart attack or stroke had been considered a first-line defense. Now though there’s mounting evidence that the risk of serious side effects far outweighs the benefit.  They are also reversing recommendations to take baby aspirin for the prevention of colorectal cancer. This guidance came from the fact that aspirin is an anti-inflammatory and…

School is Back


School’s back. So is the McRib, and masks. Hopefully, 2 of those 3 are only temporary. Though my kids and I have a differing opinions on what #1 should be. Yet we all know who #2 works for don’t we Mr. Powers? You are NOT required to wear a mask here, but feel free if you so choose.  While only about one-tenth of one percent (< 0.12% per official State stats as of the moment I type this) of new positives are among the fully vaccinated; healthcare providers though were asked…

Mask Mandate Ends July 1st


All things must come to an end. Eventually even Fast and Furious sequels will cease. As I’m sure we’ve all heard by now, so is Maryland’s State of Emergency. Among many things, the mask mandate and exemptions will soon expire. In the meantime; I have been told, in no uncertain terms by the State Board of Health, until July 1st masks will still be mandatory in health care facilities. I ask that you please comply with this directive. The last thing I need is guys and gals with badges showing…

Why do I have body pain post vaccine?


So far this week, three different people have walked into the office with new, mysterious pain in the shoulders, neck, and chest post-vaccine.  These symptoms have lasted for days to weeks even months, much longer and intense than the typical side effects.  All three had been to the hospital and had full cardio and respiratory workups and have no organic disease. To include NO BLOOD CLOTS. So, what is it then? Well, I’ll tell you.  Inflammation; and that’s a good thing, well kind of. Here is the science lesson, vaccines…

Dry Needling


History of Dry Needling Back in the 1930s a professor at Cornell Medical school read new research on the theory of trigger points and referred pain. She began experimenting with injecting varying substances into her shoulder to treat her persistent arm pain. It was found that relief did not come from WHAT was injected, but the needle itself that provided relief. After a few years of going around repeatedly stabbing folks with hypodermics causing infections and creating scars; some dude in Canada proposed the following. Instead of using large gauge, large-bore…

Dr. Lee Gets Vaccinated


DR LEE GETS VACCINATED There is a lot being said about the safety of the vaccine, and I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little worried. I don’t know if this helps anyone make their decision or not, but I used to work in vaccine research. Not the guy who’d take mystery pills for skateboard money; but a lab coat wearing scientist. There’s risk in all treatment options. There’s risk in everything. Heck, you can even die from drinking too much water. So why am I doing it? There’s nothing…
