Over the years I have seen many patients with difficult chronic injuries such as “Frozen Shoulder Syndrome”, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Plantar fasciitis using many adjusting and physiotherapy techniques.

Recently I have introduced “Cold Laser Therapy” which is safe and non-invasive. Cold Laser Therapy can help to decrease the inflammation of soft tissues and decrease pain. It has been shown to be effective in many chronic sports types injuries but also chronic conditions such as Trigeminal Neuralgia and Plantar Fasciitis, Chronic spinal pain and musculoskeletal headaches just to name a few.

Additionally I have worked as a community volunteer with many organizations in the Bay Area including Meals on Wheels, Contra Costa Food Bank , DARE Program and recently with Medshare which is a wonderful Bay Area organization that collects medical equipment and supplies and ships them to countries in need.

Educating through public speaking on various health issues and conditions especially “Obesity and Diabetes” and “Aging and healthcare”, “Environmental health” as well as many other topics is a passion of mine."
