Thank you to our Sponsor of today’s show:Ally Spine Center

What sets our office apart from other offices is our focus and expertise in treating degenerative spinal conditions including disc disease, bulging/herniated discs, spinal stenosis, neuropathy, sciatica, pain, tingling and numbness in the arms/hands or legs/feet as well as severe and chronic neck pain and headaches. We specialize in corrective care, not just the treatment of symptoms with physical medicine modalities. In many cases, pre and post-images are used to help determine the structural improvement of the spine. If you’re someone who has been suffering from neck or back pain, spinal stenosis, sciatica, or other pain conditions, and you haven’t experienced chiropractic in an integrative, corrective care office, please call us and we will make an immediate appointment for you to see if we can get you back to living at your best. You can reach Ally Spine Center at 480-809-4700 and be sure to visit us online https://www.allyspinecenter.com
