  • Shoulder problem after Martial Arts

    Male patient, 18 years old, martial arts black belt, had excruciating pain in his shoulder. When I checked his condition by palpation (touching and checking the pain area by hand), I noticed that his clavicle was misaligned. After adjustment, his shoulder was much better.

  • Ankle Sprain

    Male patient, early thirties, works at LAX, sprained his ankle while playing basketball. With one ankle adjustment, acupuncture and physical therapy, he recovered. Acute ankle sprain is simple treatment. The bone moves in only one direction: you don’t need to worry whether the bone moved front, back or to the side. With one adjustment, it can be resolved. This is the beauty of Chiropractic. Since I am also an acupuncturist, after the chiropractic adjustment, I treat the ankle with acupuncture and physical therapy to increase circulation for faster recovery.

  • 100% success rate in Stop Smoking Treatment?

    The Stop Smoking Program is an easy and successful treatment compared to the other addition treatments. People want to smoke when they are stressed because the nicotine induces a hormone called dopamin that releases stress. By auricular therapy, the brain produces dopamin. The patient will not need the dopamin any more, and won't need to smoke. I give a bottle of aroma therapy oil that will keep the patient from smoking. I also give the patient a bottle of herbal pills for a half month supply, along with ear acupuncture therapy. For all these treatments I charge only $200 as a sale price until you can stop smoking. (Original cost: $400)

  • Lump on hand / Sputum

    Female patient, in her forties, complained of phlegm and sputum. She also had a large lump on her hand, which was half the size of a golf ball. When I pushed it, it was soft like jelly. Internal dampness (“dam” in Oriental medicine) produces phlegm and sputum. It may also create lumps in different parts of the body. I asked her if she always felt tired and she said yes. I gave her a one month supply of herbal decoction (liquid herb medicine) to treat the internal dampness (dam). She came back three months later and was very happy to tell me that she did not have phlegm and sputum anymore, and her lump was gone as well. She brought her daughter who is a college student and who had the same symptoms as her mother, I also gave her a one month supply of herbal decoction for treatment.

  • Neck pain – neck slanted by 20 degrees

    A female patient had a condition, medically called torticollis, with a twisted neck where the head is tipped to one side, while the chin is turned to the other. It is usually caused by neck bone misalignment. Such a condition would decrease blood supply or affect nerve connections to the neck muscle. This would cause visible shortening of the neck muscles due to neck muscle spasm. Aroma therapy, stretching the muscles, physical therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic adjustment made her neck straight after the first treatment. Nonetheless, she came several times to make sure that the muscle was sufficiently lengthened and the spine sufficiently straightened so that it will not further cause tortilcollis. Although I provide physical therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments at the same time, I only charge patients either for chiropractic treatment or acupuncture treatment because you are seeing only one doctor, me. In some car accident cases, I charge separately for each treatment because accident patients typically require twice the time for treatment than normal patients. They have multiple pain areas which require more time for treatment.

  • Hey it really works!!!

    Acne pills, acne soap, acne skin, acne lotion: Hey it really works!!! I had really bad acne issue and have struggled on and off for a long time now. Along with my amazing acupuncture treatments, Dr. Choi recommended a new skin regimen. She recommended her herbal acne bar of soap, toner and lotion. I was desperate, so I took it all. I went on vacation and my skin began to clear up and glow! When I returned a week later for my regular acupuncture appointment, Dr. Choi recommended the acne herbal pills. I had been coming for some time, so I trusted her, and made the investment… it was worth it!! All my healing acne scars simply peeled away! I have been continuing with her face wash, toner, lotion and acne herbal pills and will continue in the future. I just bought a new bar of soap. I now can enjoy the rest of my summer on the beach and be out by the pool with confidence and clear skin!! I don't even have to wear makeup anymore.

  • Ankle Sprain/Strain

    Male patient, Palos Verdes High School student, school team tennis player, sprained his ankle while playing tennis. He was examined by another doctor and received treatments. He fixed his ankle with an ankle splint; however he used a crutch because he could not walk without it. After I adjusted his ankle, he gingerly put his foot on the floor, and he was able to walk, although slowly at first, without a crutch. He was astounded. His mother was happy, but complaining that she needlessly spent $200 for the crutches. I am an expert in sprained ankle treatment. Ankle sprains go in one direction. You don’t have to worry whether the bone is misaligned to either anterior, posterior, or sides. With only one adjustment, the problem can be solved. If you leave the ankle unadjusted, it can become chronic, and can cause significant physical pain that will prevent normal daily activities for the rest of ones life. The medical cost of treating a chronic pain will be high as well.

  • Scoliosis

    Female patient, 12 years old, had neck, mid and low back pain. When I checked her spine, I found that she had scoliosis. Scoliosis (from the Greek word meaning “crooked”) is a medical condition in which a person’s spine is curved from side to side. I told her mother that the treatments to correct her spine would take three to five months. She only came two months due to her financial situation. Her neck, mid band low back pain was almost gone, but her scoliosis was not completely cured. Scoliosis takes long time to correct. Teens can have scoliosis when they have bad posture and habits. They might crane their neck forward while they are using their computer or they read books lying down on their stomachs. Also, teens grow rapidly (their growth hormone secretion is higher than normal) and they might experience knee pain. The bone grows very fast and the body does not have enough time to adjust to that, which may result in scoliosis. In order to get their spine straight, I recommend them to come to the clinic once a week for adjustment.

  • Success story on ‘Quitting Smoking’

    Male patient, mid fifties, who works for the newspaper, smoked one pack (20 cigarettes) per day. He knew that smoking was bad for his health. He could not stop smoking because he had to smoke when his clients gave him stress. He tried all kinds of methods to stop smoking, but nothing worked for him. During his treatment, he kept saying that he could not believe that he could stop smoking after one visit to the clinic and getting supplements for home treatment. He started the ‘Quit Smoking’ treatment on October 2011. He had smoked 20 cigarettes /day before the treatment started. In November 2011: He was down to smoking 5 cigarettes/day. Starting on January 15, 2012: He smoked 1 or 2 cigarettes a WEEK, and only when he met his friend. This is because in Asian culture it is not polite to reject his friends’ offer when they give him a cigarette. But he has no craving to smoke on his own, and does not want to smoke more after an incidental cigarette has been offered.

  • Neck pain and stiffness

    Female patient, in her fifties, who runs two restaurants: one in Torrance and the other in L.A. She was very tired from having to travel frequently between her two stores. She woke up one morning and could not move her neck to the left or right. She could not drive because she could not see the side mirror and could not turn her head to look back. Therefore she was driven to the clinic by her friend. The patient came into the clinic crying in pain and frustration. She stated that she her neck pain started a month ago. She had gone to another acupuncture clinic, where she received acupuncture treatments and took herbal medicine for one month. Unfortunately, her condition had not improved, so she decided to come to my clinic. Treatment: Her neck bone was misaligned, so I applied physical therapy plus chiropractic adjustments. Her condition improved after two days: she could move her neck freely. She fully recovered after five treatments. While acupuncture and herbal remedies can be quite powerful, sometimes the required treatment is a chiropractic adjustment. It is therefore important for the treating doctor to be able to use whatever is the most effective treatment, whether it is adjustment, acupuncture of herbal remedies.
