Your Chiropractor and Chiropractic Wellness
Dr. Tim Kelemen has a new office location in the new building along the backside of the parking lot over looking his old office location. The move, which occurred on March 24, 2014, creates a more spacious and sunlit environment, not to mention the all new interior design. We are still involved in putting the final touches on the office interior, but we will soon be done and back to our normal operations.
The new office address is:
11480 South Street
Cerritos, California 90703
The office phone number is still the same: 562-865-0504.
You can park in the front, back, or side of the new, two-story building. Enter the building in the West-side entrance from the North- or South side of the building. The North-side entrance has a silver geometric sculpture in front of it. The front entrance is under the clock on the second story façade. There is also an entrance at the rear of the building, if you decide to park in the rear of the building. After entering the building take the elevator to the second floor and exit to the left or you can take the stairs and exit to the right. Walk straight past the first hallway and our door is on the left just before the second hallway. See diagram below.
To our past and current patients, we want to thank all of you for being supportive and understanding during the long transition from our old office location to the new office location.
Dr. Kelemen is pleased to welcome you to our new website. Since 1983, Dr. Kelemen has been serving the Cerritos, Artesia, and the surrounding areas by “caring for your health” through his chiropractic practice.
We just started developing our website and still have a lot of work to do. Please be patient with us as we continue to populate our website with content that will be of interest to you. We are adding new material slowly but surely, so come back and visit our site often. This website is being developed with information for your benefit. We encourage you to visit this site and make an appointment whenever you have a concern related to your chiropractic health.

It is that time of year when people dust the corners and break out the ladder for spring cleaning. But many people are unaware of the potential risk of injury that may occur as the result of spring cleaning. Thousands of injuries occur with the use of gardening tools every year. Many more injuries occur as the result of handling a ladder improperly. Often the key to avoid spring cleaning injuries is to know your limits. It’s easy and tempting to take on more spring cleaning chores than your body can accommodate. So be sure to take breaks throughout. Another important idea is to stretch before spring cleaning. A little stretching can go a long way to prevent pulling a muscle. To learn more, continue reading to avoid spring cleaning injuries.

A Careful Climb
(From State Farm Good Neighbor Magazine December 2010)
Whether it’s cleaning gutters or hanging holiday decorations, your ladder gets a lot of use in the fall and winter. Here’s how you can maintain safety while working on it.
If your ladder has been in storage, look for loose, damaged or missing hardware before using it.
If it’s a wood ladder also check for cracks and rot. Always place the ladder’s base on even ground and use a 4:1 ratio when determining ladder placement.
For every 4 feet of the ladder’s vertical height, the base of the ladder should be an additional foot away from the wall. Ladders come in aluminum, wood and fiberglass. Each has its benefits and drawbacks, but if you are working near electricity, avoid aluminum as it is a conductor.

Potential Problems for Your Back
The main thing you want to avoid is wrapping a present while sitting on the floor. Wrapping presents requires a good deal of space and the floor is usually one of the first things to avoid. Avoid it at all costs!
Kneeling or sitting on the same plane the wrapping is taking place on causes you to bend a lot. And you typically have to stretch and hold the bent position for extended periods of time. This puts a great deal of stress on the neck and low back.

It’s summertime and the days are warmer and longer. Hopefully, this motivates you to get out and get some additional exercise – softball, baseball, football, basketball, tennis, golf, volleyball, surfing, swimming, or another one of your favorite sports.
Whatever sport you participate in, preventing summertime sports injuries depends upon being in good condition, or at the least, performing proper stretching/warm-up before participating. It’s a good idea to develop and maintain a year-round workout routine that includes the stretching and strengthening of your muscles to keep your body and back ready for action. When your body is not in condition and cannot move easily and safely with adequate range of motion, your back becomes more vulnerable.
Here are some reminders and suggestions for preventing sports injuries.
