5 Year Anniversary Montage Video


On Saturday, June 13th, The Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers celebrated 5 years in business by throwing a huge party for the community.  Scott Shawver from Buckeye Country 94.3 broadcasted live from the event from 11 to 1.  Over 250 visitors came by to see what all of the hype was about.  All of the children had a blast in a big bouncy gym, on pony rides, playing with puppies from the humane society and much more.  Adults were pampered with free food, massages, and reflexology.

Dr Scot gave adjustments to his current patients as another doctor performed 17 free exams, consultations, and x-rays to help those with back and neck pain.  Reflexology by Relaxus gave free foot massage reflexology, while Teri Hamilton performed chair massages for all of those signed up (this line didn’t stop all day long!).

While all of this was going on Craig Krenzel (quarterback for OSU for the latest national championship season) and Jim Karsatos (quarterback for OSU during the 85’-86’ seasons) gave out free autographs, and free picture opportunities for all of those who attended.  Many prizes were handed out that day but the big prize, 2 tickets to the OSU/USC game this year in the shoe, were won by local resident, Sue Millisor.

Dr Scot Gray’s 5 year anniversary extravaganza was a so amazing that several people have asked if they could still take advantage of the FREE exam.  Although we had several hundred people come see us at the extravaganza, there were still some people who missed the opportunity to take advantage of the free exam and x-rays due to our full schedule.  If you missed your chance for a FREE exam you can go to or contact us at 740-386-6580.

Our 5 Year Anniversary is Fast Approaching…


A very exiting party is going to be happening right here on June 13th!

On Monday, June 21st, 2004 The Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers opened for business here in Marion, OH with the mission to educate and adjust as many families as possible with drug-free, non-surgical treatments.  Five years later, we are fulfilling that goal each and every day and we want to show our thanks to the community.

“My brother and I started a chiropractic business in 2004 in the Marion area,” said Dr Scot Gray, D.C., Owner and Director of The Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers.  “We thought that we could help more families eliminate pain and become healthy if we opened our own practice that focused on superior patient care and health care experience.  We had never opened any business of our own before, so it was probably our naivete that helped us to be successful.  We created an extensive array of options to eliminate neck and back pain at a good value. In June of 2008 Dr Seth Gray, D.C. moved on to get further neurological certifications in North Carolina, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.  I now operate the practice as the sole doctor, but I am looking for an associate doctor to hire due to our growth over the last year.”

Dr Scot Gray said, “I am very excited that we are celebrating our 5 year anniversary and I went all out this year for a great celebration as a thank you to the entire community.”  On June 13th, 2009 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at The Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers there will be fun and games galore…including the opportunity to win 2 tickets to the Ohio State/USC football game this year.

The entire community is invited to come out to The Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers on June 13th for FREE Pony rides, FREE BBQ Food, FREE Bouncy Gym fun, Music and DJ, FREE prize giveaways every 10 minutes, FREE massages, FREE Reflexology, Face Painting, FREE neck and back pain examinations and x-rays, and much, much more!

P.S.  Don’t miss out on meeting former Ohio State quarterback’s Craig Krenzel (from national championship team) and Jim Karsatos (team captain in 1986) from 12-2 PM.  Get pictures and autographs for FREE!

Mona Vie Drink with Acai Berry

I am currently researching this new “superfood” and would like any comments or references to good research on this drink.  I am especially interested in the drink containing the glucosamine which is called the “active” Mona Vie.

Please leave comments about your experiences with Mona Vie and Acai!

Quick and Easy Breakfast…


Many people ask me about what to eat each and every day.  I have many suggestions and things to say about nutrition, but what better way to tell you than to let you know what I eat every morning.  So here it is…


I start off with a fruit-shake that has in it:
1. 1 cup of spring water
2. 1/2 Banana
3. 4 Strawberries
4. ½ cup of blueberries
5. 2 heaping spoonfuls of SP Complete (NOT 10 as I accidentally said in the video!)
6. 2 heaping spoonfuls of SP Whey Protein

How To Put It All Together:

Here is how I make my shake.  I pour in the 1 cup of water first.  Then add half of a banana (broken up into 2 pieces), the strawberries, and the blueberries.  Start the blender.  Blend all of the fruit and water up until it is mixed, then add (as the blender is still mixing) through the top, the 4 heaping spoonfuls of SP products.  Let this mix in for about 10 seconds and you are good to go!

Super Easy…Super Healthy

This is a very quick and easy breakfast.  You will have more energy after a powerful breakfast such as this than you know what to do with.  Also, if you are trying to lose weight, make sure you are eating breakfast so that your metabolism starts up early in the morning to start burning those calories.

Now For My Vitamins:

I will let you know what vitamins I take each day to stay healthy.  I don’t have enough room here to go into why I take each one, but every one I take is for a specific reason (you can read more about Vitamin D in this newsletter).  I take whole food vitamins as opposed to the ones you can buy in the store because they work much better and you don’t have to take as many of them.  So here is what I take:
1. Cataplex ACP (Vitamins A, C, and P for permeability into the cells)
2. Cataplex B (B vitamins for energy mainly)
3. Cataplex D (Vitamin D for calcium balance, immunity, and MUCH more)
4. 1 Teaspoon of Carlson’s Lemon Flavored Cod Liver Oil (this is for Vitamin D, Vitamin A, and Omega 3 Fatty Acid’s.  I hate the taste of fish…this has NO fish taste whatsoever.)
5. 1 Tablespoon of Clark’s Essential Minerals (If you don’t have all of the essential minerals…your vitamins will NOT work as they are supposed to)
6. Symplex M (for male hormones.  There is Symplex F for females).
7. Catalyn (this is my multivitamin for a good all around balance)
8. Cataplex G
9. Tuna Omega 3 Fish Oil
10. Black Current Seed Oil (for specific fatty acids)
11. Wheat Germ Oil (for naturally occurring Vitamin E)

So, as you can see I take quite a few things…but I don’t have to take much of each one.  The reason I am able to have so much energy and to stay so healthy is due to this daily regiment.  There have been times when I have not done this and I notice a distinct difference.  In such a physically demanding job as being a chiropractor, I must do this to be at the top of my game each and every day.

The Lies of Nutrition, Weight Loss, and Health

This is a great article by Gary Taubes.  I have been reading a book written by Taubes entitled: GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES.  This article is a good summary of what is in the book.

P.S. This article will most likely shatter everything you have ever learned about eating healthy.

Balancing Female Hormones…The Natural Way!

I am discovering each and every day in my practice that pretty much all of the healthiest people are obsessed with the relentless pursuit of knowing “More”.  This is why so many More health clubs, nutrition clubs, weight loss programs, and healthy restaurants have been birthed here, in the U.S., than anywhere else—because, more than any other nation on earth, we have been completely obsessed recently with the belief in the philosophy of knowing ‘more’ to take your health and lifestyle to the next level.


These days, there’s a lot of foolish criticism of that, a lot from ridiculous hypocrites—people who live a healthy lifestyle, enjoying all the benefits telling you to just take medicine to get rid of your weight, pain, depression, etc.  This is the easy way for them, to not tell you the whole truth.  They act like somehow that they don’t have time to tell you how to really attain the health you deserve.  You want to ignore all of this mis-education and feel proud to be a pursuer of More.  The more ‘More’ you pursue and get, the more good you can automatically do for others, and the more good you can deliberately do as well.  So, to celebrate “Knowing More” in October we are teaching women how to “Balance Female Hormones The Natural Way”. 


How to balance female hormones is a lot of different things.  But IN THIS WORKSHOP you will learn:

  • Get The Groundwork of How Hormones Work In Your Body So You KNOW What You Can Do To Feel Normal Again
  • Learn How To Control: Mood Swings, Anxiety, Weight Loss, Depression, Fatigue, Food Cravings…and more
  • The Effect Your Diet Has on Hormones and What You Must Stay Away From
  • How To Determine What Treatment is Right For You
  • The Truth About Hormone Replacement Therapy and Some Alternatives That Give You Instant Results
  • Q & A Session With Doctor Scot
  • And much more


Call the 24 hour FREE recorded message at 1-800-753-3422 To Reserve Your Seat To This Workshop on Tuesday, October 21st at 6:30 p.m.  Seating limited to first 10 callers due to size of room.
