After two operations in back without getting desired results, I was convinced that I had to deal with this unceasing back pain for the rest of my life. Then I got in touch with Dr. Ritu and she said she can help me without going through any operations. I was skeptical initially, but now I am marveled by the results, it's as if I never had pain. Thanks a ton!

Due to back pain I had to take frequent leaves from work and that had severe consequences on my career. I was just 30 years old then and such circumstances made me highly depressed. I don't know how to thank Family Care Clinic for treating me with their herbal remedies.
