One Doctor's Viewpoint on the Effectiveness of Exercise and Medication in the Treatment of Dystonia

Dr. Joseph Chung is a movement disorder specialist, an osteopath and a cranial-sacral specialist from Los Angeles. He worked at Kaiser in Los Angeles for 21 years before leaving to go into private practice last January. He founded the DBS program at Kaiser in 1999. He is now working with athletes, boxers and Mixed Martial artists. A number of his patients have had recoveries and others are requiring lower doses of botulinum neurotoxin. He uses a unique exercise regimen that teaches the body to reflexively return to normal. His father and wife are doctors in Oriental Medicine, so he is familiar with alternative therapies as well. 

This should be a fascinating and very interactive meeting. Lunch will be provided thanks to Jessica Sorenson from Allergan. 

RSVP's are greatly appreciated to Martha at mmurphy582@gmail.com or 619-582-1961.
