"I got my life back because of
This is a powerful testimonial about a woman who was a dental assistant for 33 years and suffered from debilitating pain, as a result. Multiple doctors turned her away and told her there was no hope.

Dr Millar at Alabama Laser Spine and the Laser Pain Center Huntsville uses the Cutting Edge MLS M6 Robotic Laser. There are four classes of lasers approved by the FDA. Dr. Millar went on to say, "I personally think that the top of the line is the Class IV, Cutting Edge MLS M6 Robotic Laser with up to 25watts of peak power. This Laser appeared to be light years (pardon the pun) ahead of all the others. It had to do with the Multi Laser System where they lock or sinc multi lasers simultaneously at multiple frequencies with pulsed and continuous beams all at once. The research was remarkable on this MLS Robotic M6 Laser.
"I was so impressed with the Cutting Edge MLS M6 Robotic Laser treating pain, that I brought two of them and brought them to Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley. The best part NO DRUGS OR SURGERY. So what can we treat? We treat PAIN and INFLAMMATION. We treat Chronic Pain & Acute Pain with symptoms like sharp and dull, shooting, stabbing, and achy. We treat nerve pain with symptoms like tingling, burning, numbness, pins & needles, electric like and pressure."

Personal History: Dr Millar was born and raised in Cullman Alabama. There he attended elementary and middle school. In the 8th grade, he won the Alabama State Science Fair and a scholarship to Georgia Military Academy in Atlanta Georgia. That school changed its name and he graduated "college prep school" from Woodward Academy. During, Dr Millar's last two years at Woodward Academy, he was dual enrolled at Ga Institute of Technology (Ga Tech). He graduated from Elkins Institute at that time part of Georgia Tech where he studied Electrical Engineering. After receiving his FCC 1st Class Radio/TV Engineers' license, he joined the family business as Chief Engineer over 5 radio stations and 1 TV station. He continued his education and finished his Bachelors at Barry University in Miami, Fl.
After a construction accident, Dr Millar had back surgery. That event changed his life. A year later he had a second back surgery. A year after that he had back surgery #3. He stated that "he was in constant pain 24 hours a day every day." Trying to get out of pain, Dr Millar studied bio-mechanical trauma and kinesiology, "that helped some." His brother suggested Chiropractic; but, Dr. Millar remembers saying, "I need a real Doctor, not a Chiropractor. I've had back surgery and NO Chiropractor is going to crack my back." Dr Millar expressed that 35 years ago Chiropractors weren't accepted like today. He further stated "At the time, he was scared of Chiropractors. He really didn't personally know what they did or didn't do. He was just scared of the unknown." He went on to say, "they were talking about another surgery at the time and my surgeon said "No Way" to Chiropractic." Dr Millar stated, "I got to the point that I had no other options. I had tried everything else and was still in pain. Medicine had failed me. I had nothing else to loose, so I tried Chiropractic." "Within six weeks my pain had dropped 50%. I was able to start getting off some of the pain meds. I had been in pain every day for the past two years and what finally got me out of pain was Chiropractic." For this reason, Dr Millar shared that he became passionate about sharing Chiropractic with others.
"I told my family that I was going to Chiropractic School," they laughed. They told me I was nearly 40 and too old. He moved to Atlanta and started over again in college taking courses at two colleges to get the science courses he needed to get into Chiropractic school. He then attended Life University, College of Chiropractic where he was President of his Class, and President of the Student Body and graduated with honors. In post graduate training he studied extremity adjusting (hips, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, elbows, wrist. hands, TMJ and ribs) and earned his Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner, CCEP designation. He has passed all four parts of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well as the Alabama State Board of Chiropractic Examination. He has completed additional post graduate study in Neurology, Orthopedics, Physiological Therapeutics, Auto Accidents, Trauma, and Non Surgical Disc Treatments (Decompression Traction) for Bulging and Herniated Disc problems.
For several years, as a professor, Dr Millar taught Anatomy and Physiology at several local colleges (Wallace State & Calhoun College). Dr. Millar in 2001 was approached by WAAY TV Channel 31 the ABC affiliate in Huntsville about developing a 30 minute live medical call in talk show. The Show "MedLine" was born in 2002 with medical doctors and chiropractors openly discussing their similarities and differences in treating various conditions. The show quickly gained a loyal following and was one of the top medical talk shows in Alabama with thousands watching each week. Many local area internist, orthopedist, neurologist, cardiologist, radiologist, and many others have joined Dr Millar on the show.
In 2003 Dr Millar opened the Millar Disc Treatment Center now Alabama Laser Spine & Decompression and worked closely with UAB Dept of Neurosurgery, Dr Mark Hadley MD helping to develop the UAB Dept of Neurosurgery Chiropractic Care Team. The idea was that to further train Chiropractors to integrate with Medical Doctors and specifically Neurosurgeons to provide conservative care to patients before surgery and rehabilitative care post surgery. The program has been a great success.
