"A light at the end of a tunnel." That’s how Curtis "Bud" T. of Tacoma, a recent patient of our Tacoma chiropractic clinic, described his immediate relief after suffering from a burning sensation in his upper back and down his arm for months. He visited our clinic after trying over-the-counter pain pills, medical care, and physical therapy without relief. Now, Curtis is experiencing a wonderful new world of relief thanks to the care he received at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic."
