A chiropractor is helping patients with acute, chronic and even treatment-resistant pain.

In that article Levine says, "The feedback I have received from some former pro athletes is that this treatment may be somewhat unique in the country. If that is remotely accurate, it could be advantageous to NASCAR drivers who would like to avail themselves of a potentially revolutionary treatment. The treatment can not only help to reduce pain and discomfort, increase agility and range of motion, but ultimately may lead to an improvement in a driver's overall performance." In a sport where competitors routinely play through pain and races are won by thousandths of a second, Levine's healing touch could make a world of difference.

Levine pointed out to me that "with any approach to healing, results are contingent on the condition being treated, its severity, and duration." That being said, the vast majority of his patients report an overall reduction in pain, improvement in function, and an enhanced quality of life.

Whether it's the world of sports, treating veterans or those less fortunate, David Levine is using his special skills and talents to make the world a better place for those suffering from pain.
