The back is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body. You rely on it so heavily — whether it is to shoulder your emotional stresses or to physically lift something that you need to carry with you. Your back is constantly at risk. It is at risk when you drive, being one of the body parts likely to take the biggest impact in case of an accident. It is at risk when you are safely at home on your couch or at the office, where you are likely scrunched over and not caring one bit about your posture. It is at risk when you run, when you play sports, and even when you find yourself sick and are coughing so heavily that your back begins to hurt. It is no wonder that so many people experience back injuries every year. What is a big wonder is that so many people choose to ignore their back injuries year after year! When you break an arm or get a cut on your leg, you are likely to do something about it right away. The sight of blood leaving your body or the realization that a bone isn’t sitting right is something that not many people are going to deal with for too long before seeking medical attention. Yet when pain begins in the back, it is almost normal to ignore it. Everyone develops back pain, time to time, right? There is no reason to stress about it or overreact, right? Absolutely wrong!

I started back in December just before the holidays, and after each visit, I was amazed how not only good my back felt, but my body overall! I left for my 23rd annual golf week to Florida in February, which, after 7 visits with Nick I felt very good. My rotation was lengthened, my swing didn’t “hurt” me at all, and I went the ENTIRE week (18 holes of golf for 6 straight days) without ingesting one pain reliever! I won the tournament! In the past few years on this trip, I would easily take 20 – 30 Advil. The program has surely worked for me, and I could not be happier. I’ve already told about a dozen people that they should just GO! Have that initial consultation–there’s a good chance you won’t be sorry!”
