Before I came to Dr Schlesinger I was unable to go shopping, walking, and play with my grandchildren. After my surgery I have my life back! I would HIGHLY recommend this practice to anyone that is having back problems.

The nerve pain in my arm was immediately relieved following surgery. First time even to wake up from surgery and be basically pain free.
