My chiropractor would never suggest surgery.
IN MY OPINION, if you can stand on your own 2 feet, then you can save your self.
I suggest seeing a good chiropractor 1-2x weekly if needed.
leg shaker (chi machine) 15 minutes morning and night.
slant board is good.
herbal spray IIIxxx good.
Herbal Ointment HOT, applied direct on the entire spine after Spray III xxx was sprayed would be a must do if you were truely after a self-cure.
BF&C capsules or liquid internally for years to come as an aid of "repair".
NO DOPE, remove the dental metals, stop the bad habits and take this as a serious wake - up call, that now is the time to start taking care of your bones....lymes along with bad acidic diet eats your bones away.
