You can't start jogging by running a marathon

Dr Tawney was the most courteous, caring and helpful doctor I have ever seen. He answered all my questions, gave me advice on how to help my back pain, and laughed with me to help ease the situation. I would recommend Dr Tawney to anyone needing help with back injuries. Like he told me, "You can't start jogging by running a marathon". Thanks for the advice Doc!
