Michael Julien, LAc, MS, cSMA, Acupuncturist in Encinitas
I primarily treat patients with orthopedic disorders and sports injuries. I'm proficient in treating many types of issues of the neck, shoulders, wrists, spine, hips, knees and ankles. Many of my patients are elite athletes but most are weekend warriors who want to enjoy pain-free activity and learn how to prevent further injuries. Another passion is helping people recover and prevent upper respiratory illnesses. This is a nice compliment to orthopedics and sports because so many active people suffer from allergies, sinus problems, coughs and asthma.
I'm passionate about orthopedics, sports injuries and overall well-being. My patients benefit from initial reduction in pain, increased function, alignment correction and preventive exercise instruction. I'm constantly studying and updating my knowledge in this subject matter so patients receive the most valid treatment and guidance.
Patients receive my full attention in a private, comfortable, peaceful atmosphere where they can relax and heal.
