I've had mild back and shoulder pain since 2005 (12 years) due to a bad car accident. When my environment is cold, stressful, or strenuous, my muscles will stiffen up and hurt a lot. I've been to chiropractors, physical therapy, and normal doctors and for YEARS (since I was 17) they would usually hand me pain pills and muscle relaxers. I recently had an episode where my neck, shoulder and upper back was stiff and I experienced a lot of pain so to avoid the pain-pushing physicians, I decided to try traditional eastern medicine and found Dr. Kyung. He was very helpful and he listened to all my needs.
He accepts health insurance and cash clients. I didn't meet my insurance plan's minimal deductible amount so I went as a cash client. Cash fee: His consultation fee is $100 and $60 for the acupuncture session. Only one consultation is required. His office is very clean and professional and they have a healthy stock of korean candy too .
I had two acupuncture sessions which entailed herbal pills for increased blood circulation, acupuncture (it doesn't hurt), electrotherapy or whatever it's called, and some herbal cream for muscle pain. Two sessions was enough to get me feeling back to normal and honestly it's the best Doctors visit I've had in a LOOOONG time.
Personally I don't agree with doctors pushing pills so after reading about this crazy opioid crisis, I decided I'm going to seek natural remedies. If you haven't tried eastern medicine, I strongly recommend it.
