Prognosis: Poor – Dr. Carol A. Kauffman, an expert on fungal diseases at the University of Michigan, said “in these instances, all that can be done is administration of more antifungal drugs and hope for the best.”

The best of the best fungal specialists are running out of cures for this contamination.

Back Pain Injections Are Temporary

Back Surgery for Sciatica is Temporary

Chiropractic Safer and More Cost Effective

To quote the Medical Researchers, “After controlling for severity and demographics, no health maintenance care is generally as good as chiropractor care.” (Spinal Care) – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21407100

An actuarial review of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee’s general health plans claims between October 1, 2004 and September 30, 2006 was undertaken and records revealed –  “Paid costs for episodes of care initiated with a DC were almost 40% less than episodes initiated with an MD.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21109053
