    BACK SURGERY ALTERNATIVES

    May I be totally honest? All of us in the back care business are trying to make a living, and there's little altuism in back care. We're all after your dollar! Because of the complications of surgery it's worth considering the alternatives first. Not a day passes when every chiropractor is treating a patient, usually several, who are on the verge of surgery. You'd be surprised at our results... but Rome wasn't built in a day. Give us a fair chance, and don't expect your chiropractor to do a miracle in a week. He won't most likely though my mother, a chiropractor, used to say:


    "Miracles we do at once. The impossible takes a little longer..."
