    Question
    I had an unusual back injury and couldn't heal it through
    chiropractors, etc....I read about TMS and went to a TMS
    Therapist, which was helpful.

    He suggested I have an Orthopedic Doctor trained in TMS
    look at my X-rays and MRI....Then have a short phone
    Conversation to get the Doctor's opinion.

    Does Dr Hoffman do such things?....I would greatly
    appreciate it if he did...I live in New Jersey and can
    mail him a CD of my spine X-ray and MRI.

    Whatever fee he suggests will probably work for me.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,
    Vince Shea

    Answer
    This is a question that we get quite often. Working with a TMS physician is an important component of recovery.

    There's a very thorough list on the TMS Wiki providing a list of TMS physicians state by state (and country by country). Here's a link to that list:

    If you happen to live in a state without a TMS physician, it's often worth the trip to go see one. Nothing is more effective at eradicating doubt than getting solid confirmation from a physician that you have TMS.
