I have been treating both professional athletes and weekend warriors for years. I continuously take advanced doctoral level courses in Sports Medicine Acupuncture. This on-going training in the latest techniques for treating sports injuries sets me apart from the majority of acupuncturists in New York City. My years in the ring fighting as a full combat Muay Thai kick-boxer has given me firsthand experience in breaks, fractures, tears, strains, dislocations and other sports injuries – be it my own or those I have treated over the years.
As I have said to both my pros and amateurs, “there is nothing I am doing to you that I haven’t done to myself or have had done on me (always said with a laugh and a smile).” I offer my patients a complete treatment program from evaluation of x-rays and MRI reports to physical assessment, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, manual modalities and muscle retraining and reorientation in addition to acupuncture, low level laser and cupping.
Integrative Approach and Treatment
I work closely with many orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, neurologists, physical therapists and osteopaths here in New York City to create an integrative approach and treatment program to ensure a complete resolution to your medical condition, which will help you to train more efficiently and effectively to optimize performance, decrease risk of injury, and accelerate your recovery time.
