The Doctor’s Perspective

Dr. Sampson explained, “You’re progressing well right now. You still have all the pathology in your lower back, L-405. And you know, I think that with our progression go into pushing it to the limit, but taking it sequentially ’” so going week to week to week, we push a little bit more. If we hit a roadblock, we back it up a step. But I think you know over the next four to six weeks, we’ll see how it’s going.
