Spine specialist, Dr. Timothy Gagan shares a success story using Cox Technic on a landscaper who has low back pain with pain down his leg and into his foot.
Dr. Tim's interest in chiropractic began with high-school sports. He was a wrestler and football player which caused him spinal injury.

He takes great joy in treating working men, like his father, and getting them back to work. In his spare time, he enjoys playing music. His mother is a piano teacher who instilled a love of music in him. You can hear his music on YouTube on his channel, "The musical chiropractor".
