4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence from Pain
“My back for no apparent reason was so painful. I couldn’t move. After two days in bed a friend recommended I see Dr. Rosenfeld. I could barely drive or sit when I came in. This had happened several times in the past. A medical doctor had given me muscle relaxers only. They weren’t all that helpful. I experienced miraculous results after visiting Dr. Rosenfeld. I am able to do more than before in movement and strength with no pain. My whole outlook each day is more positive and I feel more energized.” GM
