Dr Mike Kang
Dr. Mike Kang is a Chiropractor who specialises in correcting painful, nagging, chronic problems of the spine. Known for his very ‘hands-on’ and practical approach to patient care, Dr. Mike helps a broad range of people from parents and office workers to athletes who suffer headaches, limb pain and back pain/ stiffness that doesn’t seem to go away with time and other therapies.
Dr. Mike believes that accurate analysis and precise treatment is the key to successful outcomes for his patients.
Originally from Seoul, South Korea and having grown up in Sydney, Dr. Mike’s Chiropractic journey began as a teenager suffering from chronic low back pain and stiffness which lasted many years into his 20’s. He found himself unable to stand up longer than 20 minutes at a time due to the pain – and year by year he felt that the low back muscles got weaker. Sports became difficult, work became a chore and the only relief came from lying in bed.
He went on a mission to find the solution to the problem, seeing many different types of therapists – which yielded temporary results. He found that even daily muscle stretching and exercise routines gave only short lived relief and quite often worsened the low back pain afterwards.
It wasn’t until he went under the care of a well-reputed Chiropractor in his local area that things improved dramatically – in just a few treatments, the pain had disappeared, the flexibility of the lower spine returned and the muscles felt strong again. He was finally able to stand and be active as he was before the injury.
Amazed by the result, he began to work for the Chiropractor as his apprentice whilst studying Chiropractic at Macquarie University. Under the Chiropractor’s tutelage, he was rigorously trained to create rapid results for a wide variety of patients.
After graduating Macquarie university in 2012, he served patients in Sydney utilising a range of techniques including manual joint adjusting, muscle release, posture correction, dry needling and rehabilitation exercises.
