And again, I have to say, thank you so much, Gary, I have no doubt at all that a lot of this is due to your help.

Even when facing the prospect of surgery for a chronic injury, such as to the back, the benefits of holistic therapy can still be huge - in this case, massage, exercise and nutrition - all specific to the individual.
In some cases the need for surgery disappears. If surgery is finally opted for, then the patient will be in a better position to handle the procedure and recovery will proceed briskly with less risk of complication.
If you are under the care of a health professional, you are still advised to discuss any changes in your treatment plan before doing so.
