Thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting this Tracy. I printed off a copy to take to my rheumatologist. I've had chronic back/neck pain for 20+ years. Surgery is too risky and taking pain meds. every day is hard on the liver. Chronic spine-related pain is one of the most common and debilitating health problems. This could help millions of people.
