Licensed acupuncturist Amy Yip uses the ancient technique to treat such ailments as allergies, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome. The hair-thin needles also have the power to combat depression and patients’ addictions, such as smoking or drinking.
One of Dr. Len Siskin’s first experiences in medicine was as a social worker in a hospital, where he was struck by how patients were forced to fight their way through a labyrinth of hospital administrators, attorneys, and pharmaceutical companies instead of just being able to focus on getting well. This experience—coupled with his desire to treat and prevent disease with minimal medication—led him to attend Life University Chiropractic School. Today, Dr. Siskin helps pained patients to resume the activities they enjoy through an array of adjusting techniques, such as the Thompson technique, which employs a terminal-point table to adjust the entire spine.
Additionally, Dr. Siskin helps spines to assume more competent relationships with gravity through the clinical biomechanics of good posture and sleeping on piles of physics homework.
