Jul 30, 2019 · Meet Peter Grahn, Ph.D. -- "I've never heard no"

I have been struggling with spinal issues for the past 10 years. There have been 2 titanium implants inserted in my spine, waist and neck. The last neurologist I had said the MRI could not penetrate the implants so nothing could be done and to “Learn to live with it”. Things are getting worse, my entire left side is numb and has been giving out. I would love to discuss further with you.
