After much research, I discovered that only a very few doctors take health insurance for spinal decompression. I found myself suddenly in a painful situation with my lower back and leg pain and the bills were adding up quickly. Each doctor had their own approach as to how and help me. I did the epidurals several times with some relief, but it didn't last and surgery wasn't an option. No one told me about spinal decompression. I had to hear about it from a friend and that's when the research started. I met with Dr. Karr and he reviewed my exam and MRI with me in detail. It mode complete sense as it related to the pin I was having, that being a nerve in my lower back being pinched and how everyone has a different idea of how to treat it. I decided to do treatment with Dr. Karr and I started noticing a difference rather quick. He explained that most people don't notice relief that quickly and Dr. Karr changed my treatment plan and started me on strengthening exercises. I believe he is the only office offering Medx with decompression. The cost was a fraction of what other offices wanted me to pay out of pocket and I must say I can imagine getting any better treatment elsewhere. I like to DRX9000 as oppose to the other machines I looked into. I am pain free and much more confident in my daily activities. I suggest seeing Dr. Karr before considering anything else.

East Meets West Testimonial by Mara I first started receiving treatment from Polina Bowler in 2001 after a major car accident. While my bones had healed quickly, I was still plagued by a residual numbness in my left foot. Each night I’d feel a worrisome “pins and needles “ sensation that made sleeping difficult. Chiropractic visits weren’t helping and I didn’t know what else to do. Upon the suggestion of a family member, I sought out an acupuncturist. I put my trust in Polina’s wisdom. I saw her once a week and took the Chinese herbs she prescribed. The turnaround on my foot problems was amazing. Within six weeks my symptoms were gone and I was feeling back to normal. Since that time, Polina has helped me with a long list of ailments: stomachaches, digestion problems, anxiety and muscle tension. I even come to her for advice for on how to placate my sugar cravings or drop 5 or ten pounds. The results speak for themselves. Polina’s soothing presence and vast knowledge make her a confident and true healer. Lying on the table for a treatment, with the smell of incense in the air and the candlelight dancing on the wall, I feel I am truly in a space where East meets West.
Polina's acupuncture gave me my life back. Migraines and chronic daily headaches had taken complete control of my life. I could not work, and even the simplest of activities had become extremely difficult. The anxiety that plagued me as a result of the stress of feeling miserable all the time became incapacitating. I had been to various doctors including a neurologist and had been prescribed a variety of prescription drugs--all of which did little to help me and had multiple undesirable side effects. Out of desperation I decided to try acupuncture. I have been Polina Bowler's patient for two months now and the results have been very positive. My chronic daily headaches are virtually non-existent and my migraines have lessened both in intensity and frequency. Acupuncture has helped me tremendously. I am able to start participating in my life again without fear that every action will cause a migraine. Polina Bowler is both professional and sympathetic. She treats not only the specific issue but the WHOLE PERSON. Her acupuncture treatments bring the body and mind back into balance. –Erika, Los Angeles
I suffered from weakness from working to hard, sinus and lung issues related to allergies and asthma - my pulse was acting oddly and was a great concern for myself - The cardiologist and regular Doctors I used could not give me counsel or aid that would begin to resolve these health issues. But then, the Lord brought Hwan Seon Jang into my life who is a highly anointed healer! Hwan Seon while using is specialized acupuncture techniques and his amazing cutting edge and foundational herbal blends has nearly healed 100% within in only three visits to him, I want to make this more clear. . .after almost a year of trying to become healed with western medicine, Hwan Seon's anointed abilities have nearly healed me in only three visits and I can tell that by the time I finish out his prescribed hand made special blends of herbs that he made for me, that this combination of his acupuncture and herbal prescription, that I will be 100% healed. It, to me, is a miracle! "Book Your Appointment Today," to be sure that you get healed by this amazing modern day healer!
First off I would like to say thank you to Dr.Karr and his team for the wonderful service they provided me the moment I walked in the door. I came in as a walk-in and was treated like family. The whole team was kind, informative and helpful. So I finally decided to see a specialist after months of pain in my rib area. I am so glad I saw Dr.Karr as my Chiropractor. With Dr. Karr's expertise, he was able to diagnose the problem and use his magic hands to readjust my back and ribs. I feel fantastic after my first visit and kick myself for not coming earlier. It was also surprisingly affordable. It was so great to see Dr.Karr actually cared for his patients. He was all ears when I spoke and his face time was invaluable. I have already recommended him to others and will continue to use West Los Angeles Chiropractic office for all my chiropractic needs. I hope other patients will be able to experience what a wonderful practice you have. Best wishes. Anton
Been thinkin bout submitting myself for Acupuncture for alternative medications for my chronic pain caused by off and on SCIATICA which bothers me for more than over 10 years. I had treatment from my doctors and the pain is actively recurring and yes its my first time and choose IMB ACUPUNCTURE in top of my research list. And i got myself treated for the first session yesterday 6/23/14 with a warm welcoming heart of DAVID CHUNG and with his modern art technology ELECTROACUPUNCTURE combined formula medication approach in treating the areas where sciatic pinch nerve causes me a lot of discomfort after more or less an hour of treatment ... an instant relief and feeling of pain free was truly achieved with not much needle inserted with the help of ELECTROACUPUNTURE....i am fully satisfied and would highly recommend you to try IMB and you get your moneys worth more than anythingelse..with a truly fullfilling effect.
My experiences with Dr. Bowler have been overwhelmingly positive. I first came to see her after a serious lower back injury. Since I had never had acupuncture before, I had some reservations about the "needling" process, but was immediately reassured by her calm and professional manner. The office was peaceful & relaxing, the needles were applied with a very gentle touch, & my injury was treated and cured within 2 sessions. I then came to see Dr. Bowler when I was having trouble conceiving (I was in my mid-30s, had had miscarriages, and thought perhaps I wouldn't be able to carry a child to term). She carefully reviewed my health history and then prescribed a course of vitamins, herbs - specifically combined for me - and acupuncture. I am happy to say that I have since given birth to a beautiful, abundantly healthy little boy. I can't thank her enough! Pros: Highly skilled, Honest, Caring Megan, Los Angeles
Bing, bing! You guys know the lifesavers they use in Star Wars, he treated me with that. Hahaha, I'm just kidding. Anyways, back to Acupuncture. Whenever I had a cold with fever, I would go to Dr. Jang. He would treat me with needles. I can tell it had worked after I had been treated because when I had a fever, my fever would go down and when I had a cold, I would stop coughing. Before I was treated, my whole body had ached, but after I was treated it felt very refreshing and nice. After the treatment, he told me rest and after a day my aching and fever was relieved. The soreness and aching had gone away! I would recommend this to people who have sores, fevers, and pains.
Did you know acupuncture treats more than just back pain? Acupuncture helps with many conditions and is wonderful to reduce stress. Too much stress creates a hormonal imbalance which can lead to other health problems like allergies, digestive problems, infertility, menstrual irregularities and PMS, migraines, and lowered immunity resulting in frequent colds, flu, and sinus problems. Chronic stress is effectively relieved through the Integrative Acupuncture treatments WellStream Acupuncture offers, which includes Aromatherapy, Ear Acupressure and Sound Therapy. Get relief today from the compassionate, comprehensive care at WellStream.
Regardless of what others say, they do take insurance for decompression therapy and I have the EOB's from the insurance company to prove it. Mind you they told me NOT all insurance companies cover this treatment. I had a terrific experience working with this office. I fould them all very thorough, professional and low key. It's all high tech and I did follow up assessments on my iPad for them to follow my progress. Thanks Dr. O for all the attention. I believe in this and for me I am out of pain now. As an alternative, why wouldn't someone try this before surgery and or medications and or injections of steroids? It makes sense.
