"The AO Treatment is the best and has worked for me after first time treating!! Been having pain since 2011 due to auto accident and seen so many specialist and has been no results in improving. First time meeting with Dr.Pragle and I can say his knowledge and treatment is the best in Tallahassee and I felt a difference!! I am so happy i found him!!
