Roger Rabbit Medical Mishaps

Minutes hang like hours in a doctor’s waiting room. Worse yet is when our anticipation is met with a hurried exam. Isn’t it frustrating to leave with important questions unanswered?
Walt Disney productions created a parody on medical care titled “Tummy Trouble”. It featured Roger Rabbit who was boosted to stardom in the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” An infant whom roger is babysitting accidentally swallows one of his rattles. The child is taken to the hospital, but Roger is misdiagnosed as having ‘tummy trouble’! The abandoned baby roams the hallways while Roger is rushed to surgery. Roger’s operation is halted by the lunch whistle, but he is not out of danger because the infant crawls into the operating room and unwittingly activates an atom smasher! Roger saves himself and the infant by eluding the deadly ray and surviving other life threatening incidences. No doubt, the cartoon addresses some of the shortcomings of today’s health care system.

Performing Arts Experiences

Practicing next to a dinner theater for eighteen years has allowed me to develop skills in treating performing artists and their specific injuries, i.e., singers’ jaws, necks and throats, dancers’ backs and legs, etc.
Among many other experiences, I have been invited to speak and advise dancers of the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow and the cast of the 1996-97 New York musical Victor Victoria. I toured Europe in 1991 with the David Parsons Dance Company, a modern dance ensemble that appears biannually at the Annenberg Center in Philadelphia. These outside-of-the-office performing arts highlights have been most rewarding. Not only have these activities gotten me involved with some of the most talented and appreciative people, but they have allowed me to give back to a community which has so generously given to me. All of the performing and fine arts in America struggle to survive because they compete with television, movies, sports and popular music.

Dr. Saracino’s Path to Chiropractic Neurology and the Performing Arts

 (In September 2008 the American Chiropractic Association interviewed Dr. Saracino and published a shorter version (seen at the “Doctor’s Media” navigational link) in the Journal of the ACA.

 Chiropractic Neurologist relies on education and professionalism.   A curiosity about nutrition as a youngster and sports participation as a teen put Mark Saracino, DC, DACAN of King of Prussia, Pa., on the path to becoming a chiropractic neurologist. As a child, he noticed the difference that eating healthy food, back-rub exchanges with an older brother and regular sports activities made in the way he felt. This influenced his use of massage and exercise therapies in practice. Before pursuing machine technology and the beginnings of mechanical engineering he discovered the benefits of taking large dosages of vitamin C to treat and prevent colds.

Curbing Health Costs – No Fault to Holistic Doctors!

Most know that medical bills are escalating faster than the cost-of-living and inflation, but few know that our tax dollars are contributing to the upward spiral. Government subsidies (free money) and low-interest loans continue to be given for inflationary purchases of costly diagnostic/therapeutic equipment, redundant research projects and unnecessary expansion of health care facilities. Recent studies have found that most communities are oversupplied with MRI and radiation therapy equipment, as an example. Research grants are often distributed without a coordination plan, causing repetition of elaborate and invasive procedures. Holistic and preventative ones are usually not emphasized. Since most of our health care dollars are spent after age 65, because of chronic degenerative diseases, more research on “how we live here and now” should be awarded to reduce costs in the long run. Although the numbers of patient stays in hospitals are decreasing, beds continue to be built.
