Patient Success Stories
  • I have worked as a Registered Nurse for about 15 years now and am extremely aware of how important body mechanics are when performing as a nurse. However, no matter how cautious you are, 15 years of nursing does cause some wear and tear on the body. He in the past year has given me back a sense of control.
