Miracle Man: Oh My Aching Back!

Miracle Man: Oh My Aching Back!
I would not be standing (literally) if it wasn’t for Dr. Sender Deutsch at Shape health & Wellness. Plagued with a really bad back my whole life, there have been months on end when I have had to put my life on hold while I painfully and slowly recuperate.  However, two years ago, when it seemed as though I was destined for major back surgery, I visited Sender at the advice of a friend.  To say that he changed my life would be an understatement.
