Meet Dr. Kang
Background & Education
In 1978, Dr. Kang was born in Seoul, South Korea, and has lived in Southern California since 1990. He received his B.S. in Pre-Vet Science from Cal Poly Pomona and moved on to the neuroscience research assistant program at the David Baltimore lab at Caltech. During that time, instead of working at the lab, he found an interest in helping people hands-on instead. He received his chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences (2013) and had internships at the Veteran’s Administration (VA) Sepulveda Ambulatory Medical Center, and as a treating chiropractor for Engemann health center at the University of Southern California (USC) main campus. He currently practices in the city of Duarte, California.
Unique Perspective / Distinctive Treatment!
Dr. Kang understands that every patient is very unique, with different injury levels and specific treatment needs. Through his training in the Veteran’s Administration Hospital and seeing many patients with trauma, Dr. Kang is experienced in determining the best course of action for each patient, individually. His treatments are based on addressing the soft tissue adjunct to spinal manipulation, which is the key to healing many musculoskeletal problems.
Dr. Kang believes in compassionate and personalized touches in his work and uses various tools such as cold-laser, Kinesio-taping method, Active Release Technique (ART), and others. He also implements therapeutic exercises to prevent future relapse of physiological problems.
More About Dr. Kang
On a more personal level, he volunteers as a treating chiropractor for USA beach volleyball team events, USA fencing, and local high school football programs. When Dr. Kang is not helping people with their chiropractic needs, he enjoys coaching for city youth basketball programs, playing classical piano music, and spending time with his wife, teenage sons, and his dog-daughter named Snowy.
