Seeing Dr Rainville is a great experience. He listens for what is going on with his patients, and recommends treatments accordingly. His focus is on getting your body working properly by figuring out what is happening with any and all spine-related issues, Not simply focusing on dealing with people one symptom at a time. One symptom at a time, often doesn't help with spine issues, and it often can make things far worse. This is the guy to see.
He reviewed an MRI of my spine as a second opinion. Surgery had been recommended. After a thorough examination, Rainville concluded that surgery was not the answer at that time. It's been six or seven years. I'm just fine. I absolutely trust his judgment.
