I seriously thought that I was through playing golf. It got to the point where I couldn’t even pick up a coffee cup. Everything has changed…I have total mobility…no pain in any direction. It’s as if I am 30 years old again! I can’t say enough about Dr. Tait. He’s the only person I would recommend. He’s the only person I would go back to should I ever injure myself again.–Jerry Shapiro, Patient
