after struggling with chiropracters, massage and physical therapy for close to two years i went to see Dr. Dedo. he had my back and spinal problem figured out in no time, and then did some confirming tests. he explained the problem and gave me a plan to deal with it. a plan he pointed out that MIGHT work, but if it didn't these would be the other options. the LAST option being surgery. his advice was in direct conflict with my chiro. i took his advice and within two months i was back on a tennis court and within 8 months the back was essentially healed. this is what you get by dealing with a guy who's a pro and reality-based. and i should add, a guy who seems pretty fit himself and see that value of that when dealing with your back.
