Patient Comments (1)
in Bakersfield, CA |
I'm a 55 year old female, I have worked all my adult life. In Oct. 2015 I was placed on disability due to neck pain, I had never encountered this before, I had neck pain pretty much forever but it would come and go, however this neck pain was not going away, it was getting worse. I was referred to Dr. Armstrong by my Chiropractor and I am so happy I was. We had to go through many doors (insurance), but I finally had a 3-fusion and am on the road to recovery.
