That is really good. We were told to steer clear of that place though. We ended up with a surgeon we really liked.
One thing we were told by both the surgeon and the chiropractor who saw Mike was that they should see the MRI before deciding treatment. Depending on the issue and the severity if it is a bulged disc the adjustments can make it worse. Mike wouldn't do chiropractic again, it couldnt and didnt help him, but it is also bad for his specific condition.
