    Anyone who has been told they need surgery but wishes to avoid it, anyone who has been told there is nothing more available to help, anyone who failed to significantly respond to conservative options (medications, physio therapy, injections, chiropractic, acupuncture), or anyone who still has pain but wishes to obtain the type of care they want.
