There is no doubt that Dr. Gruft & his team are the best in the country. I've battled chronic back pain for decades & more recently had spinal surgery. I was fortunate to attend Dr. Gruft's 'kick-start to wellness' program earlier this year. A full month working with physical therapists, nutritionists & nursing all aimed at understanding pain management, strengthening my body & learning about the mind-body connections. I am so grateful to Dr. Gruft and his team!!
