After many years of pain medication and doctors visits, I was unfortunately resigned to the conclusion that I would have to live with this pain for the rest of my life. After 8 sessions I could no longer feel any pain down my leg, and after 12 sessions the lower back pain was completely gone. E Golds
Over the 10 week period my pain levels decreased by around 80%. I no longer experience any pain, and with the series of exercises prescribed by Relinque Sports & Spinal Group. C. Parry
I have recommended Relinque Sports & Spinal Group to many people and they all have experienced amazing results – I would unreservedly recommend Relinque to anyone who values living with energy, vitality and happiness.
