One Man's Mission to Improve Our Healthcare System and Resolve Chronic Pain
Date:6/24/2009

NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Many Americans feel that today's healthcare system is failing them. Increased costs resulting in higher insurance premiums have made it more difficult to afford health insurance.

Typically, an x-ray or MRI is executed and a structural abnormality such as a herniated disc or arthritis is identified. This becomes the basis for a diagnosis and subsequent treatment. The problem, Yass explains, is that none of the steps generally taken -- from diagnostic testing, to the prescription of medicine to the implementation of pain-minimizing th
