Migraines, sinus pain and all forms of headaches are maladies that Dr. Johnny Truong likes to treat. After all, that’s how he found his wife.
Dr. Truong is a chiropractor in the mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, Koreatown, focusing on Upper Cervical chiropractic care, a specialty that reduces pressure on the brain stem.
The brain stem allows healing signals to flow from the brain to the rest of the body as described in this post on DoctorTruong.com. The brain stem is “a region that is extremely sensitive to pressure. . . .The top three bones that make up this structure are the C1, C2, C3. Misalignment to these bones can happen from sleeping with a pillow that strains the neck or leaning forward and staring at a computer screen for hours.”
Upper Cervical chiropractic is a gentle technique and does not involve twisting or popping of the neck as performed by traditional chiropractors.
When Dr. Truong was a student studying the technique, he met the woman who was to become his wife. She had severe headaches since age 9 but couldn’t find relief through drugs or homemade remedies.
Some doctors told her the pain she experienced was a psychological problem and that it didn’t’ actually exist,.
After a series of gentle adjustments, Dr. Truong cleared up her headaches and they went on to get married.
He treats patients of all ages and backgrounds for a variety of pains that are found on his website.
Treating the brainstem is the root cause of the problem, he says, and pharmaceuticals only treat the symptoms temporarily and not the real cause of the problem.
