I would like to express my sincere thanks for sorting out my back problems over the past few weeks.
Your will no doubt remember that when I first walked into your office I was in continual pain and was unable to bend over or sit down without severe discomfort. Now, after 6 short visits to you, at a very reasonable cost, I seem fully recovered. I had previously been skeptical of chiropractic –well no longer! I would not hesitate to recommend friends to your practice." -Patricia R,
At my first visit to Dr. Ray Ganem I told him he had to fix me immediately as my husband was schedule for a bone marrow transplant in the coming months and I had to be in tip top shape. It turned out to be a tall order as my spine was a mess. I had a herniated disc, and my body was a toxic waste dump.
Within 30 days of chiropractic adjustments with deep tissue massages, my back was corrected and the pain was gone; my muscles were beginning to have a degree of flexibility; I was doing my prescribed exercises, and eating better as recommended by Dr. Ray
My husband was at UCI medical center and was due to return home shortly after his surgery and Thanks to Dr. Ray and the BodyPro! Team I was in perfect condition to fully care for him. They do outstanding work!! -Lenore O.
"Dear Dr. Ganem
How could I ever begin to thank you for the miracle you did on my back? I suffered for 10 years in pain everyday! I had to limit my physical activity to a minimum. Even walking I had to ice my back. Three different chiropractors made no difference and had no home. They told me it would be years of treatments. Then I saw you. In a few months time I felt a difference and one day I realized I was totally pain thanks to Dr. Ray and the Massage Therapists.
I would have never believed I could have been totally pain free and now I am able to do any activities I want thanks to your treatments. Thank you ever so much. -Jan D
"I had herniated 3 discs in my low back in the military, and had tried everything from pain medications to steroid injections in my low back to reduce the pain, but nothing worked. By the time I came to see Dr. Ganem, my pain was so intense that it just hurt to move. Most importantly, I could not play with my little girl.
With the chiropractic adjustment performed by Dr. Ganem, combined with massage and physical therapy, the pain has totally disappeared. I am able to do a lot of the things I wasn’t able to do in the past.
I just want to thank the people who have helped relieve my pain, and in the process showed me the proper way to maintain the level of wellness that I have reached." -James M.
"I had a nasty fall recently and, at my age, broken bone are a worry. X-rays showed no broken bones but badly bruised muscles and joints that make it difficult to move without pain.
Normal chiropractic did not help much. I decided to try BodyPro! Chiropractic who treats injuries like these. After 7 treatments I was walking around without my walker.
What else can I say? Dr. Raymond Ganem did the job to get me going. I will surely recommend him to everyone!" -George M.
"About two months ago, I noticed that the upper part of my right leg was numb during and after practices (I row on the UCI women’s crew team). I saw the trainer and a physician on campus who told me that there was nothing they could do for me- that my body was simply built in a way that putting pressure on a nerve was causing my pain. If I stopped rowing it would eventually go away. Dr. Ray examined me, found the problem, and after a couple of weeks of treatment, he had corrected it, With his help, I’ve gained the feeling back in my leg and have continued rowing Thanks!" - Erin L.
"Two months ago I had very bad back pain, and I couldn’t sleep or even walk well. I had to use a cane to walk. I began seeing Dr. Ray. He saw me everyday and told me my back was bad, but that he would try chiropractic on it. He wasn’t sure of the results, but, fortunately, after four or five treatments I am much better. Dr. Ray is so happy with the results, and so am I.
Thank You, Dr. Ray."
"With the summer approaching and my desire to get back into weight lifting and other athletic activities, we began an aggressive rehabilitation program consisting of three visits a week. With each visit, Dr. Ray would adjust the cone back into place, assist me with shoulder rehabilitation exercises and have Matt break up the scar tissue with massage therapy. After one month, we noticed considerable improvement and were able to reduce the visits to once per week.
At this time, Dr. Ray instructed me to return to the gym and begin a complete body weight lifting program. With continued visits to Dr. Ray and Matt I was able to increase and intensify the amount of weight in the workouts. In a few months my shoulder had completely healed and I was able to workout and rotate the shoulder to the same extent that I could prior to the injury."
"Dr. Ray diagnosed that I had a spinal disease called “A.S.” ankylosing spondolitis about two years ago. This disease fuses areas of my spine, limiting movement. Medical doctors told me that there wasn’t much they could do. It may stay the same or get worse. Dr. Ray has been adjusting me for over 2 years.Other chiropractors said they couldn’t do anything for me. Ray has disproved everyone. Not only was he able to adjust me the “fused” area, he has increased my mobility and flexibility greatly. Dr. Ray literally worked miracles in how I now feel.
I will never let anyone adjust me but Dr. Ray. Thanks for a new life, Dr. Ray."
- Andy Z.
Dr. Ray Ganem is the consummate professional and gentleman, with a reassuring and warm personality, no less. In approximately 10 sessions, starting with X-rays and a nerve test, Ray has managed to restore mobility and vastly improved range of motion to my neck.
I have a degenerative disc condition at several sites in my cervical vertebrae. Prior to visiting Ray, previous chiropractors would adjust ALL the sites in my neck, a site in my mid-back, and my lower back every time and not always pain free. Ray gained an understanding of my symptoms and started me on succinct program, to eliminate the chronic numbness that plagued my left hand. Initially, he adjusted several sites and all three areas on my spine that may require adjustment; but from the third session on, Dr. Ray focused on one site in my neck, “the culprit”. Each subsequent session he would question me on the numbness; and each time I could report that the numbness occurred less frequently. In a month and a half I am symptom free. Ray has cut me back to once a month maintenance visits, and reenforces his treatments with advice on how to keep my arthritic-prone neck mobile for the rest of my life. I feel great. BodyPro! If the best investment I’ve made in the last three years." -Deb R.
"My life experienced a turning point with my first chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Ray. For several months prior to receiving help from Dr. Ray, I had been feeling numbness in my hands periodically everyday. The problem has been completely eliminated through adjustments on the upper spine.
The entire staff at BodyPro! creates a sense of healing through their blending personalities, expert professional skills, excellent work ethics, and genuine care for each client.
Thank You, Dr. Ray. Thanks also to your Physical Therapist and Massage Therapist for helping my body to become pain-free. Keep up your good work! I am most grateful." -Dawn Q.
I came to Dr. Ray with the modest expectation of a little relief from acute hip discomfort and scoliosis, compounded by foot surgery. Dr. Ray’s experienced "whole-body" examination allowed him to quickly zero in on the causes of my discomfort. He offered a treatment regiment within a short time frame along with his commitment to alleviate my discomfort. I am surprised and happy that the pain vanished after four sessions, which certainly exceeds my modest expectations. I particularly like the structure and attention to detail which appeals to my engineer's mind. I also like the fact that Dr. Ray has taken the time to educate me about my posture and other well-body ideas. How do I show my love for my doctor? I'll hopefully never visit. I will send flowers and cards, though."
"Dear Dr. Ray
Having tried chiropractic care before with no results, I was skeptical when referred to you. But with many months of increasing pain, I was willing to try anything. After my initial visit I felt 90% improvement. Your professionalism, integrity and caring approach are unmatched, thank you so much." -Sonja H.
I have been a patient of Dr. Ray’s for a few months now. I have received tremendous benefits from his care, and I would highly recommend his treatment to anyone and everyone!
In fact, I have told numerous friends, family and coworkers about his thus far. I am not one to refer people to certain services, unless I truly believe in their high quality of work/care- and Dr. Ray has certainly won my approval. I am in the health care field myself, and work at two medical centers, with health care practitioners. I have a high standard of expectation for quality care, both in the services I provide and in what I expect from others; I consider myself hard to please! From the moment I walked into Dr. Rays office I perceived a very professional atmosphere and competent doctor who was providing a high quality of care for his patients. Dr. Ray did a thorough and extensive initial evaluation. This included X-rays and other diagnostic measures. He then identified my problem in a very efficient manner, and treatment began that very same day! My relief began immediately. This was a long anticipated event! To provide you with a brief background, I was in a serious car accident in august of 1993 in which I sustained multiple injuries from head to toe, including bad whiplash. I had physical therapy for quite some time, and it provided little to no relief. The doctors then sent me to a pain anesthesiologist, who attempted to alleviate my muscle spasms in my neck and back with shots. This along with other valiant attempts provided me with short-lived results. I have lived in constant pain since my accident, now nine years later after 2 other chiropractic doctors were unable to identify and treat my problems, I am so happy to have found Dr. Ray and receive the long awaited help! I have received treatment from him for a few months, and my improvements are remarkable, and pain reduced dramatically. Thank You Dr. Ray! I believe you too will be very pleased with the results. You’ll see –You’re in great hands." -Sarah E.
"I am an aging, decrepit ex-jock with numerous aches and pains. I suffered a severe hip flexor strain that kept me from running for a year and a half. I could not walk up a flight of stairs without severe pain.
Dr. Ray adjusted my hip and back. His Massage Therapist massaged and totally beat on my buttock, back and hip. Within weeks I was playing basketball, running and engaged in all types of physical activity without pain!
Dr. Ray is the best qualified person I know to cure what ails you and get you back in the fast lane." -Drew R
"I was experiencing severe pain in my left shoulder whenever I rotated it upward or backward. After six months of complete rest and no improvement, I decided to visit Dr. Ray. He diagnosed the problem as being the left humorous strain from a previous weight lifting injury." -Mike S.
"Muscle relaxers and pain pills were not working, and my back and left leg were in misery. My husband's leukemia doctor advised me to see a chiropractor or get a massage (WOW). I had always had reservations about chiropractors but I let my “fingers do the walking” to find one. I knew there was a chiropractor on Barranca, near my home in Woodbridge. The BodyPro! The Ad appealed to me because it addressed both things the doctor recommended. This letter is to acknowledge BodyPro! Chiropractic for the fine treatment I received. As a result of a car accident, my lower back was aching and stuff. I found it difficult to walk and especially painful to get in and out of my car. Dr. Ganem was keenly aware of the cause of my pain and my needs; he always modified his treatments accordingly.
Thanks to Dr. Ganem’s sensible use of adjustments, deep heat, exercise programs, and massage I was able to resume my daily activities much sooner than expected." -Sherry L.
I was involved three different accidents in the past five years. (the last one being my fault). I am a very good driver.
The cumulative effects of these accidents left me with severe lower back pain, no lateral movement in my neck (not being able to turn my head left or right). After the first two accidents I spent several months in physical rehab. During that time period, I saw several orthopedic surgeons. I followed their advice to the letter. I tried yoga and different methods of physical therapy. Before I came to the office, I was told that a chiropractor would not be able to help me. In fact I was actually warned that chiropractic treatment would very possibly intensify my injuries I had incurred. Then I happened to run into his friends (not in my car), who took me to see Dr. Ray. Now I have full range of motion in my neck and my back is totally subsided six short visits to Dr. Ray and I am now a new woman. -Beth R.
"For two months, I had a respiratory problem which made it extremely difficult to get a deep full breath. I put off my exam until I realized I was only getting worse. Dr. Ray, examined me and immediately found the source of the problem. After a few treatments and a change in my diet, I can finally breathe easy again." -Steve G.
"I came into the office suffering stiffness from my neck to my lower beck. With chiropractic treatment and massage, I was pain free in less than one month. Dr. Ray also gave me tips about stretching, and good posture. I am grateful to the friendly staff of BodyPro!" -Victoria P.
"I had trouble driving due to stiff neck. I had to turn my entire body in order to back up the car. That, in addition to “spinal quakes” and dizzy episodes, brought my active life to a near standstill.
Although Dr. Ray’s office appears to be “sports medicine”, there are many senior citizens such as I who go to him.
Combined with the magic fingers of the Massage Therapist, whose red-hot hands stimulate the repair of muscle fibers and get the body ready for a topnotch adjustment, Dr. Ray combines hard science and modern training techniques with the intuitive inner wisdom to make a gentle adjustment of the body that corrects even long-standing and “hopeless” conditions.
Dr. Ray expertly interpreted the X-rays, which revealed a genetic defect above the tailbone. With that knowledge, he was able to make surprising progress. I am grateful for restored hope, in addition to returning vitality." -Dotty J.
"The main reason I called Dr. Ray was because I had severe pain in my right leg and lower back, plus carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists which I have had for many years due to word processing. I was constantly in pain and I knew that chiropractic had worked for me previously so I decided to try this method to see if it would help me. There was nothing to lose except the pain!! Boy did it WORK!! - Susan G.
After the initial X-rays and consultation, Dr. Ray adjusted JUST the parts that needed it. That was the difference for me since I was used to the “bone cruncher” type of chiropractor and didn’t realize that that wasn’t in my best interests. I felt immediate relief and was so full of energy that my co-workers were amazed at the change. I continued treatment for 3 times a week for a couple of weeks, then 2 times per week for a couple weeks, and now I am down to 1-2 times per month for a check-up.
Dr. Ray is truly professional, courteous, has a wonderful smile and sense of humor and I am glad to call him my friend as well. I met him before he moved into his new office and have referred many of my friends as well as co-workers to him for treatment. Every person has thanked me for introducing them to Dr. Ray and with good reason -
they feel better and so do I.
I will continue to see Dr. Ray for check-ups and encourage everyone to refer their friends and family (he gives you a discount for each referral).
Thank You so much, Dr. Ray. I’ll see you soon and thanks for helping me maintain this level of health and well-being." - Sharyln N,
"Dear Dr. Raymond Ganem,
Some years ago, an orthopedic physician diagnosed me as having severe scoliosis (curvature of the spine), and warned me that as the years progressed, I would be forced to be less and less active. In truth, by the time I had come to see Dr. Ray my neck had stiffened considerably and often my back would lock which made it impossible to walk. Now, thanks to Dr. Ray’s chiropractic treatments, I no longer experience this stiffness in my neck and back. -Linda A
"It was the right decision to seek help from the BodyPro! Team for my jaw and back problems." -Carmen P.
