Over 30 years ago, I herniated two discs in my lumbar area. Since then, chronic back pain and sciatica has been my constant companion. Spinal surgery seemed like my last resort. I had known about Dr. Ptak but was skeptical and resistant to the initial requirement of daily visits through acute care. Within only two months, I became, for the first time in years, pain free. I have improved beyond anythng I could have imagined and it just gets better an better.
