I have been dealing with, at times, excruciating pain in my lumbar spine and nerve damage due to an RTA, Derek has done an AMAZING job and
I just want to express my gratitude. He is a true gentleman, he made me feel incredibly comfortable in an environment I was not used to, and sceptical of at first. He answered every question I had and most of all, he has helped me get over my injury in just 5 sessions (1 session still remaining).
