pain Most people experience significant pain at some time in their lives, whether from injury, illness, or an unknown cause. Pain is a warning signal, an alarm that goes off when your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong and out balance.

Relief of pain is the biggest reason people seek acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture and related therapies are a time-tested, safe, effective, natural and drug-free way for treating acute and chronic pain. There are no side effects. It can help relieve the symptoms associated with arthritis, carpal tunnel, back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and fibromyalgia and sports injuries. It helps by re-establishing the healthy flow of energy and blood to the affected area thus reducing inflammation and soreness, while helping the body to repair itself.

I started treatment with Dr. Kang 4 weeks ago for severe headaches and constant pain in my head, right shoulder and neck due to a severe impingement in my cervical spine. Prior to seeing Dr. Kang, I suffered with this condition for approximately 6 months. I tried different pain medications and physical therapy which did not help. The pain was so severe that I had to stop working. There were nights I could not even put my head down on a pillow. I could not perform my daily functions. I could see a slight improvement upon my initial acupuncture treatment. I have now had 8 treatments, I no longer take any pain medication and I am currently pain free.

I first visited Dr. Kang's office after being advised by my primary care physician to search for alternative treatments for my 30 years of progressively severe back and neck pain. I have serious degenerative disc disease and arthritic joints. When I investigated acupuncture and Chinese medicine as a potential treatment I was skeptical that it could help me but I was desperate for some relief from years of pain. I researched and found Dr. Kang. When I made the appointment with Dr. Kang my neck was in a state of severe inflammation with constant pain in my neck and down my arms. I also had lumbar back pain with radiating pain in my sciatic, down my right leg,and in my right hip. I had been through 4 major surgeries for these problems. I began acupuncture treatments initially concentrating on my neck problems. After my first three closely spaced treatments there was a noticeable reduction in my neck pain. After a couple of weeks of treatments my pain was almost completely reduced and I was able to manage my pain for the first time in many years. I was especially blessed to get some relatively pain free sleep for the first time in many years. Eventually, all my other pain issues were addressed by Dr. Kang's treatments. I reached a point where only one weekly visit was required to maintain a manageable level of pain. Dr. Kang's treatment also aided in healing my incisions and generally helped to speed up my overall recoveries from the surgeries. I was able to stop taking strong prescription pain mediciation.
Dr. Kang is a very gifted doctor. She has a special gift that can be felt through her touch. She has great skill and has a clear understanding of the complexities of the profession and art of the practice of Chinese Medicine. I have no reservations and I highly recommend Dr. Kang. She gave me back my life and I will always be grateful to her.

“I had treated with a neurologist, he was sure it was vestibular migraines. I treated with an ENT Specialist and he was sure is Meniere’s disease. My OBGYN was sure it was hormones. I’ve had CAT scans, MRI’s, heart work up and down, and no one could help me. All of my doctors prescribed drugs. None of which worked. I even resorted to energy healing alternatives like Reiki. My daughter saw Dr. Kang for pain management; insisted I come in for my problems. I have seen Dr. Kang consistently for a few weeks and am already feeling so much better. I haven’t had one vertigo episode, I am sleeping better, and I am back to exercising and living life again. Thank you Dr. Kang for giving me hope and letting me feel like I can live life again.” - J.C.
