Dr. Liu truly has the gift of healing.
After 5 years of manageable but uncomfortable pain, I was diagnosed with a hip labral tear by my ortho specialist. I was devastated - mainly because the thought of surgery, let alone in my hip area - was mind-numbing. And with a wedding in 2 months + a 20-hour flight to Thailand, I didn't know which was worse: the thought of having surgery around this time or being in pain during my flight to Asia.
I was told a hip labral tear is basically tearing of cartilage, in which the only true way to 'fix' the tear is with surgery. I was told that people can live with this tear without surgery, but with modifications in their life.
My physical therapist recommended I check out his acupuncturist to 'manage' the pain in the meantime before my wedding.
I've now seen Dr. Liu for only 6 visits, and it's truly a miracle how much I have healed. He explained to me that he's healed others before with labral tear, as acupuncture promotes microcirculation, with others not needing surgery.
My hip area fills stronger. There is little to no pain, and I know this will only get better with a few more visits.
I truly believe I'm in the process of healing from this 5-year injury and will not need surgery.
Dr. Liu also worked on other areas that were slightly bothering me (my right hand from beginning flares of tendonitis, my neck area being tight) and it just took one visit for these areas to feel back to normal.
Dr. Liu is extremely knowledgeable, very kind and patience. His staff and facilities are beyond excellent.
