In addition to preventive & rehab care. "PNPR™ techniques https://www.reliefforyou.com/page7.html safely accelerated my rehab" PGA Master Pro Craig Waryan ...and reduced pain.

PGA Professional/Club Manager/MN - Rick Sitek

I have a fused vertebrae (lower back) and a partially fused vertebrae in my neck. I was a test subject in a seminar on "The Mind-Body Approach to Enhanced Golfer Performance/Playing Pain Free."

In a very short time using PNPR™ also called Talking Away Pain™ (TAP™) my neck mobility improved 20%, without pain.

Having dealt with this problem for years and to have it improve drastically, almost immediately, was incredible.

Everyday I use Dr. Petras' simple steps and I continue to play pain free.
I highly recommend!!
