A Tool I Wish I Had…

If there is one tool I would love to have, it would be a video machine that could show patients how they would look, function, and feel, years down the road with, and without, living the wellness lifestyle. Imagine if I could show you a couple of quick video clips of you ten, twenty, thirty,…
