I'm telling you... write to Jolie Bookspan... http://www.scuba-doc.com/joliecv.html
Shes a good friend, and she's the one who stopped me from getting my spine fused, and had me moving without pain in just a few weeks... and all by e-mail! I didn't get to meet her in person until a year later! You can contact her http://www.drbookspan.com/index.html
and she is more than happy to help. She wouldn't even accept payment from me, so I make dinner for her and her husband every time we get together...

I think it's more the case that most doctors don't even realize that the exercises will make things better. Except in the case of surgeons. They only get paid if the operate. That's their tool. And if your only tool is a hammer, you try to fix every problem with a nail.
