What our patients are saying:
*So, my people, my loved ones, listen... I was hurting to tears on Friday with back pain. After two weeks of doing self care, icing, stretching, massage etc it wasn't getting better. I jut had Kris Justesen do an injection & I'm PAIN FREE!!! Like I'm a little girl dancing free!! Haaaa ha happy !! N.R.
