"Working in t he Bay Area for over 20 years has allowed me to see how the spines of the people in the Silicon Valley have been altered and damaged. This is why I specialize in challenging and chronic back pain patients. The medical profession isn't quite sure what to do with back pain until it reaches a point of disease. Additionally, Most people take back pain too lightly so they simple mask the pain with drugs, ignore it, or they receive the wrong treatment. My primary focus is the spine and how to restore it to normalcy."
