Six resources you must have if you suffer from back pain.

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Sep 23, 2014 @ 04:44 PM

When I suffered with back pain I learned thousands of lessons.  Many of these lessons were learned when I was "the patient". It was easy for me; I learned what helped and what didn't because I had the pain.  I have also, over the years, learned from all my patients. We have had over 20,000 patients in our 20 years of being in business, and each patient teaches us something new. I have learned from other doctors and learned from my staff, and I continue to learn more every day.

Fire and Ice

“Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.
