"Adrian's approach to treating my shoulder injury impressed me from the start. He approached the issue from multiple disciplines, providing injections to handle the existing injury, and exercises to prevent it from happening again." - Jessie Z

"I started having pain in my left shoulder during my second month of pregnancy that continued to worsen. Initially I was seeing a chiropractor once a week and after 3 months of treatment, I was making no progress and the pain was actually getting more severe. I started seeing Adrian for acupuncture and now after 4 sessions I am virtually pain free. He was able to quickly diagnosis what was causing the pain and the combination of acupuncture and taping he used has been highly effective. I'm so thankful for his expertise in treating shoulders and highly recommend him!"-Liz K
