Have you thought of acupuncture to keep healthy?
Micheal Julien provides acupuncture for pain and injuries. He specializes in the treatment of orthopedic pain and disorders as well as sports injuries. He helps active people and athletes of all levels. This includes retirees, weekend warriors to professional athletes. He has had regular success for 10 years healing injuries associated with golf, tennis, running, surfing, swimming and more.
A Certified Sports Medicine Acupuncturist, he employs a specific assessment protocol to identify the underlying cause of the issue and heal the patient quickly. Michael's personal experience as an aging athlete and his experience recovering from chronic pain helps him in his daily practice. In addition to operating his private practice Michael has been an Intern Supervisor and UCSDs Athletic Training Facility.
Micheal became an acupuncturist because of his own pain. In the 90’s he ended up with an un-diagnosable condition and had a long period of chronic knee pain. Someone introduced him to acupuncture. After 3 treatments the pain went away and never came back. He wanted to share that with people, and his love for his work translates into a thorough, calm and caring approach to patient treatment.
