Meet Drs. Marshall

Everyone comes from somewhere, and everyone has a story… Here’s ours :)!

On August 28, 1989 we met at Marshall University. Since it was Dr. Ray’s birthday he decided to skip class. A mutual friend of ours knew we were in the same Physics class and decided to play match-maker. I had gone to class and Doc needed the homework assignment. Well, to make a long story short, our friend’s set-up “worked” and we became study partners (for the next 3 years). It was literally a working relationship from the very start. Doc did my Organic Chemistry (trust me, this was safer for everyone!) and I wrote his papers. After graduation, we were married on June 6, 1992 and enrolled in Palmer College of Chiropractic.

We graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic (with Magnum Cum Laude honors) in February of 1996 and moved to Oklahoma. In 1997, our first son was born with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Helping him overcome his injuries put us on a unique path that led us to develop what is now known as Brainstem Care.  We practiced what is now known as Brainstem Care in Tulsa until 2012 and in 2013 we moved the practice to Owasso. (This location allows us to be closer to home and have more time with our four boys!

We enjoy being full time Chiropractic Physicians as well as full time mom and dad! When you come to the office you’ll occasionally see one of the boys helping us. They enjoy helping around the office, being outdoors, building, creating and gaming. They have all taken after Doc. They are extremely smart, handsome and very sweet! Besides our formal education, being the parents of these four boys has been one of our best teachers. (They have helped us become better people and doctors (and are helping us to this day become very, very, very

patient!)) They have also helped us realize how important it is for all of us to stay healthy, strong, equipped and focused for our whole lifetime.

It would be our greatest joy to share the gift of Brainstem Care with you. We hope to meet you soon… And we look forward to being a part of your story on your way to health, happiness and fulfillment!

We wish you all the Best!

Fellow Patients,

My father’s lower back pains were almost unbearable. As long as I can remember, my dad lived with lower back pain. For the last five years, his condition had worsened considerably. He often awoke during the night due to intense pain, finally forcing him to sleep in a recliner if he was to get any rest at all. These rough nights made for long days at work, especially when required to sit at a desk all day. Dad was tired, hurt and dissatisfied with treatment options. Drugs, traction, M.D.’s, and D.O.’s were all ineffective, expensive methods of temporary symptom relief. Performing routine tasks such as mowing the yard proved to be difficult because of energy loss, sensory deprivation, and back discomfort. All of the treatments he received focused on his symptoms. Their purpose was to relieve his pain, but what they failed to accomplish was to treat the cause of his pain. This is where upper cervical care differed.
Through a family friend who had seen a remarkable improvement in her life after visiting Drs. Ray & Mary Marshall, Dad decided he would give these doctors a chance. It worked! The doctors corrected dad’s mis-alignment, and since that time nearly five months ago, he has lived a progressively pain free life. He is not yet functioning at 100%, but. little by little, with a corrected spine, his body is healing and strengthening itself every day. Dad works more comfortably, sleeps in peace, and basically just enjoys life more fully. I learned, by witnessing my father’s health improve, that by going to a Brainstem Care Care doctor I could really help the people I love live a better life.
