    I've had back and hip pain for almost a year after having my second child. There seemed to be no end in sight and no solution to help. Within 10 seconds of coming in my exam room Dr. Frantz knew what was wrong and how to treat it. He explained it to me so I could understand and even took the time to show me on a spine exactly what was happening. The relief I felt just from someone knowing what they were doing and how to solve the problem was amazing. Thank you!
