Dr. Yoo’s Roots in Combining Traditional with Non-traditional Medicine
Growing up as a medical doctor’s son, Dr. Phillip Yoo D.C. was instilled with an inquisitive nature to look beyond obvious symptoms to uncover the root cause of problems. In addition to studying pre-med at Michigan State University, Chiropractic at the National University of Health Sciences in Chicago, and completing continuing education seminars at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Yoo D.C. spent over 20 years conducting hands-on research around the world. In doing so, he discovered how to combine traditional and alternative medicines to treat chronic pain.
While working as a medical missionary in Central America, he experimented in combining prolotherapy with acupuncture with decent results. He then ran 2 pain clinics in Korea, where he treated 4-star U.S. Army, Air Force and Special Forces Generals. He traveled to Europe to further study chiropractic sports medicine and was invited to treat athletes at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. During that time, he teamed up with other sports doctors to combine Eastern and Western medicines. Results were great.
After Dr. Yoo’s research, which spanned 4 continents, he concluded that although the combination of allopathic and alternative therapies benefited most people, there were still stubborn cases that didn’t respond to anything—drugs, injections, surgery, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, etc. He knew there had to be something to help folks suffering from chronic pain.
Dr. Yoo’s “Eureka!” Moment
Dr. Yoo D.C. discovered Chiropractic and Laser Medicine by accident—literally. Upon returning home to America, he injured his back. The pain was intense. Life as he knew it changed in an instant. He couldn’t play sports. He couldn’t concentrate. He couldn’t lift up his young son and daughter. He couldn’t even drive his car without sharp, electrical-like pain shooting down his leg.
That’s when he discovered chiropractic and Hi-powered Laser Therapy. He noticed a difference after 1 treatment. What a relief! Within a few weeks the sciatic pain disappeared and he regained his full health. Incidentally, he later suffered a bad case of shingles which caused peripheral neuropathy pain. He developed neuropathic numbness and tingling in his foot and ankle. Again, it was Laser Therapy which saved the day.
After years of searching, Dr. Yoo D.C. had finally discovered the Holy Grail of non-invasive pain management. That’s when he founded LaserMed to help other people who were living life on the sidelines due to chronic pain.
