If you are struggling with back or neck pain, consider a comprehensive diagnostic before you jump into medications or operations. Through a thorough review of your pain points, posture, medical history and exercise regimin, I can help to identify the causes of pain and explain your condition in simple language. My recommendations are based on more than 15 years' experience as a physician, research of pain, and my own personal experience overcoming acute and chronic back pain.
I am a Doctor of Medicine with 30 years' experience in diagnostics of complicated medical cases, therapy of comorbid conditions, author and practitioner of integrated non-surgical treatment of spine problems (neck and lower-back pain). My focus is on educating patients in understandable terms regarding conditions, treatment options and ergonomics. I am a multidisciplinary practitioner in internal diseases, anesthesiology, acupuncture, physiotherapy and disaster medicine.
I apply an Integrated Pain Management Approach that combines Western, evidence-based medicine with Asian traditional therapies. I aim for comprehensive health and well-being with my patients. That is, I don't only focus on the pain-point, but I explore with each patient his or her physical, mental and spiritual health as a path toward better living.
