Patient Comments (2)
in Ogden UT |
After being in pain with a neck injury for 4years Dr. Shepherd fixed the problem. He gave me a trigger point injunction. He also showed me how to move to not aggravate the problem. This reduced the pain levels so that I was able to begin an exercise program that strengthened my muscles to support the spine. That in turn, cleared up my neck, back problems completely.
