Medical College, brings relief to these millions of sufferers (including himself) who literally ache for help. Based on the latest scientific data, Dr. Stern developed a five-step approach with a multidisciplinary,

• Step Four: Embrace various pathways to healing, because there maybe more than one way to treat your pain
• Step Five: Live a life that supports a strong, healthy back, because you don’t want your back pain to become a chronic problem
