Visiting the Chiropractor in Seoul: a review of Create Wellness Chiropractic Sports Medicine Center in Itaewon

   

Create Wellness has coupons on their website.
     Finding a good chiropractor in Seoul can be stressful. If the doctor hasn't had good training they could seriously injure your body. Luckily, I was relieved when I discovered that Dr. James Lee at Create Wellness in Itaewon studied at Palmer College which is well known in the U.S. as the Harvard of Chiropractor Schools. Dr. Lee has quite a sense of humor and enjoyed fixing up my back, maybe even a little more than I did.
     When I walked into the office I was quite nervous to go to a foreign chiropractor. Especially, because chiropractors are traditionally associated with Western medicine and most Asians are very skeptical about their practices. My English students warned me about going to the chiropractor and told me that I should visit an acupuncture doctor instead. However, with my severe and cronic neck pain I knew that the chiripractor was exactly what I needed. Dr. Lee did a great job with my adjustment and I was very pleased with his care.
     Unfortunately, Korean insurance does not cover Chiropractic care. The fee's at are quite high at Create Wellness are about 50,000 won per adjustment unless you get a 10-12 pack of adjustments which lowers the prices about 30%. However, the price worth it because you can trust them to do their job well. Visit the Korea4Expats website about Create Wellness Chiropractic Center for directions in Korean for an easy taxi ride to the office. The location in Itaewon is very easy to find from the station or by cab.

Everyone is entitled to believe what they choose. For some people, a chiropractor Dandenong pinched nerve session can do wonders though.

I experienced a lot of back pains before. I took medicines to alleviate pain. It did work, but pain kept on coming back. So, I decided to look for an alternative treatment. Someone referred me to a Chiropractor. Chiropractic medicine really worked for me. Now, I am doing light exercises everyday to prevent back pains from coming back.

As much as possible, Asians would resort to alternative medicine than to consult with contemporary western health options. This is even very common here in Melbourne regardless if they speak good English. I think it's something innate in their culture.

Korea's medicine is really advanced. They have great herbal as well as contemporary medicine.

I've been resorting to this kind of alternative treatment whenever pains strike for quite some time now. I can say that this is indeed a very effective way to alleviate pain such as back pain and neck pain. I'm glad I have found a good chiropractor in SUBURB who always gives me pain relief.

I wonder what technique are they using or are they using the techniques that Chiropractor Drummoyne does?

I was at this clinic about 3 years ago. It's a very shady place ridden with office politics used against patient care. As recommended by many at US Army base, I clearly asked for Dr. William Choi, but the receptionist deceived me and took me to Dr. James Lee instead. The two did not tell me the truth until I finally figured out on my own that I was not being treated by the doctor I asked for. Obviously, there had been some office politics trying to remove Dr. Choi from the clinic. Anyways, Dr. James is friendly but not knowledgeable. The Filipino receptionist was very dishonest and an aggressive 'seller'. I wouldn't recommend this clinic to anyone.
