Gentle Acupuncture & Chiropractic Care

Acupuncture and chiropractic are covered therapies in the California workers compensation system.

Our experienced team of doctors provide care with compassion. To us our patients are people who are hurting, not another “Worker’s Comp case”.   We serve West Covina, Baldwin Park, La Puente, and surrounding Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley areas.

We chart patients progress, work with orthopedic doctors, attorneys, insurance adjusters, and Medical Provider Networks (MPN). We make sure referrals are processed promptly so patients receive treatments in a timely manner.

Our safe, evidence-based treatment combinations improve healing outcomes so our patients can improve aspects of daily living, reduce the need for pain medication, and start enjoying a better quality of life sooner.

New Patient Referral Process

The patient, physician’s or attorneys office, or claims adjuster should provide the following information for New Patient referrals to our clinic:

  1. A Referral Authorization from the doctor/insurance carrier specifying (a) The referring physician (b) Date Of Injury (c) Accepted body parts.
  2. Patient demographics: (a) Phone number (b) Address

Acupuncture facilitates tissue healing, obtains myofascial release for tight muscles, reduces inflammation in injured areas, and naturally controls pain. When medically necessary, our doctors include additional modalities such as cupping and infrared heat to optimize healing results.

Chiropractic is a non-invasive and holistic approach to healthcare that aims to correct musculoskeletal disorders and improve overall health and wellness. Our clinic offers a range of chiropractic treatments that can help alleviate pain, restore function, and enhance your quality of life. Ask you doctor about chiropractic care. 

Far Infrared Heat
Far Infrared heat is used to open up capillaries to promote local blood circulation (blood has platelets and plateles have growth factors – part of the repair process), relax tight muscles, and to help facilitate pain relief.

Cupping reduces pain and tension, provides myofascial release, and can help lower inflammation. The patient feels pressure.  We constantly check with the patient on their comfort level during a cupping session. 

Gua Sha, aka Rolfing, Coining, or Grastan technique
Soft tissue manipulation technique to obtain myofascial release, break up scar tissue, promote local blood flow, and alleviate tense muscles.
