Beyond Painkillers: Dr. Kihyon Sohn’s Gentle Healing for Whiplash in Beaverton with Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine
Whiplash Treatment in Beaverton: A Holistic Approach
Whiplash, a sudden neck jerk from a car accident or other trauma, can leave you with lingering pain, stiffness, and headaches. While conventional medicine often relies on pain relievers and muscle relaxants, these can come with unwanted side effects. Dr. Kihyon Sohn offers a gentle and effective alternative in Beaverton, Oregon: Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM).
TAM encompasses a vast array of healing practices rooted in ancient Asian wisdom. Drawing from acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other modalities, Dr. Sohn tailors a personalized treatment plan to address the root cause of your whiplash, not just the symptoms.
Acupuncture for Pain Relief and Tissue Healing
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves inserting hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. These points connect to energy pathways called meridians, which influence the flow of Qi (vital energy). By stimulating these points, Dr. Sohn can:
- Reduce pain and inflammation: Acupuncture releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers, and helps modulate inflammatory responses.
- Improve blood circulation: Enhanced blood flow promotes healing by delivering oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues.
- Promote tissue repair: Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, facilitating faster recovery.
“After my car accident, my neck was constantly stiff and painful. I was hesitant about acupuncture, but Dr. Sohn’s calm demeanor and gentle approach put me at ease. After just a few sessions, I noticed a significant improvement in my pain and range of motion. I’m so grateful for Dr. Sohn’s help in getting my life back on track.” – Sarah L., Beaverton
Herbal Medicine for Internal Balance and Recovery
Dr. Sohn’s TAM approach goes beyond needles. He utilizes the wisdom of traditional herbal medicine to create personalized herbal formulas that address your specific needs. These formulas may include:
- Pain-relieving herbs: Herbs like turmeric and white willow bark possess natural analgesic properties.
- Anti-inflammatory herbs: Thunder god vine and Boswellia can help reduce inflammation and swelling.
- Muscle relaxants: Herbs like valerian root and skullcap can ease muscle tension and promote relaxation.
The Power of Personalized Care
Unlike a one-size-fits-all approach, Dr. Sohn takes the time to understand your unique situation and tailor your treatment accordingly. He considers factors such as your whiplash’s severity, overall health, and any existing medical conditions. This personalized approach ensures you receive the most effective care possible.
“I was skeptical about TAM, but Dr. Sohn’s thorough consult and personalized herbal formula convinced me to try it. The herbs helped ease my headaches and improve my sleep, reducing my neck pain. I’m impressed with Dr. Sohn’s knowledge and commitment to my well-being.” – Michael C., Beaverton
