Spine-tingling performance

The pain management doctor offered me more additional conservative treatment, which I declined, and then recommended I see Dr. Haroun. For a reference, I called the sports medicine doctor that had operated on my tennis elbow and replaced my wife’s knee. He recommended Dr. Haroun. I then contacted my physical therapist, who also recommended Dr.… Read more “Spine-tingling performance”
