“Shenandoah Valley Performance Clinic is unlike any sports performance clinic in the area. Dr. Ray’s unique approach to rehab is straightforward and honest. He makes your return to activity his top priority. I would highly recommend SVPC for your rehabilitation needs!”



– Alicia

“I walked into the office at Shenandoah Valley Performance Clinic slightly broken and a little worse for wear after a lower back injury 2 years prior. At that point I had tried a few different rehab approaches, which seemed to offer temporary relief, but ultimately left me feeling like this is now the new normal. Get used to it. Dr. Ray helped me realize that we can work through the injury by diligently coming up with a training regimen backed by knowledge and experience, and slowly progress past bad habits and poor movement patterns. I now have the confidence to not just function better at my job, but to get back to the active lifestyle I had been accustomed to pre injury. Would highly recommend.”



– Mike

“The programming that Michael does for rehabilitative purposes is both fun and exciting yet challenging. Trying to recover my speed and bounce from my Achilles injury he has literally been there every step of the way to let me know what I’m doing right and wrong. He is all about progression and strengthening!”


– Shawn

“Knowledgeable. Meticulous. Driven. Persistent. Resourceful. These are all adjectives used to describe Dr. Michael Ray. However, I could just as easily use patient, kind, understanding, ethical and confident to describe Dr. Ray. I am not a person that goes to the doctor very often, in fact, I usually avoid seeking medical treatment like the plague. When I scheduled my first appointment it was with a great deal of skepticism, but after the initial consultation I knew I had made the right decision. If you are experiencing pain (back, neck, shoulder, etc) or just want to improve your mobility or enhance your athletic performance PLEASE give Dr. Michael Ray a call today – I promise you will not regret making that call!!”


– Susan

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Ray as a colleague. He is dedicated to the advancement of of the performance of the human body through scientific based care. He not only dedicated I continuously learning from the resources around him; but contributing to those sources to help make advances in the community. I would never hesitate to send someone I know to him for care as I know they would be in great hands.”


– Eric

“Michael kept me healthy through out the CrossFit season and also helped me improve efficiency in all of my movements! Could not have asked for a better chiropractor!”


– Asa

“Dr. Michael Ray is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to every movement of the body. He will take the time to help you meet your goals with your health. I highly recommend him for both a chiropractor and a coach. If you want to improve your life he’s your doctor!”


– Jessica

I attend SVPC’s group functional fitness classes and have been a patient with Dr. Ray. Both services have been exceptional. I’ve been to gyms where the coaches are there mainly to supervise, but don’t actually coach. That’s not the case at SVPC. All of the coaches are attentive, thoroughly explain movements, and offer tips and modifications to make sure we’re getting in a good workout and being safe while doing it.


– Madison

Great experience and great people. Dr. Ray was very professional yet personable. He works directly with athletes one on one and is extremely knowledgeable about all types of sports injuries. I would highly recommend Shenandoah Valley Performance Clinic to anyone needing therapy after an injury. Front desk(Josh McNolty) was exceptional with all the insurance questions and also works great with athletes of all ages with crossfit training.


– Amy

Fantastic place with great people. Dr. Ray listens to your needs and will prescribe what is necessary to get you back to your sport or life as soon as possible. I have also utilized their programming options for powerlifting and competed in my first USAPL powerlifting meet under their direction. Very happy with my results as both a patient and athlete!
