What stupid thing(s) did you do this summer?


We are all getting back into the daily grind. It’s time to undo all the stupid things you did this summer. Here are mine. (Obviously this edition is brought to you not by Dr. Lee, because he doesn’t do anything stupid…)

#1  I rode roller coasters.

When you are a child this is meant to be fun and in the case of my children they ride them over and over… But as adult, while roller coasters may still be fun they can have repercussions. A roller coaster is nothing more than a semi-controlled car accident. It sounds shocking, but if you actually watch a roller coaster and see what happens to your body, you’ll understand. In my case I have a mini case of whiplash. So I am on a modified treatment plan designed by Dr Lam. He recommends adjustments 2-3 times per week for the next 2-3 weeks to “whip” my neck back in shape. Now you are asking was I in pain?  No, but my neck was tight and I did not have full range of motion when I moved to look over my shoulder it was “uncomfortable;” what many would call a ‘small injury’. However, like Laundry Mountains, small injuries if ignored have a way of growing to where they can get out of control. Like laundry, if we’d just do it then, it wouldn’t take long at all; but if we wait, it takes a while to get it under control.

#2  I ate way too much yummy stuff!

Over the summer my diet of 90% lean meats and vegetables 10% discretionary flipped the other way. I know not a great plan but I had a yummy summer. But now I need to get back on track; however I am really craving brownies right now! My solution is I will do a NovoLife cleanse. I have done these before, but it great to repeat them when you have done something dumb like me and eaten your way through the summer. Once my cleanse is complete, I will really watch what I eat and supplement with protein shakes until I have shed those unwanted pounds. Then I will go back to eating good foods 90% of the time.

#3  I stopped exercising.

Easy to do but I was really lazy most of the summer. Spent a lot of time at the pool turning pages, but nary a lap was swum.  Now that kids are back at school and in rec, I am back on track 3-4 times per week. I even signed up for a 5k to motivate me.

So if you are like me and have done some stupid things this summer or just had way too much fun, please give us a call. We can help with major injuries, small pains, and a few extra pounds.



Testimonials

I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.
