Testimonials for Holistic Pain Treatment and Pelvic Care
'I have a big problem with my back, therefore I went to doctors, MRI, physiotherapy, and gym with no results. My walking was very bad and I could not climb even one stair. I was desperate, and then my daughter told me to go to Dr. Chang.
Dr. Chang did for me trigger point therapy and also gave me home work to do. I did everything I was told to do and in a short time I started to walk better, longer time and climb the stairs.
Today I have no pain and I am so happy! Dr. Chang has HEALING HANDS and I recommended her to all my friends. All my respect for you Dr. Chang. Thank you very much.'- Nicola G
'Dr. Chang has helped me tremendously with pelvic (primarily bladder) issues stemming from the birth of my daughter. Unlike other physical therapists, she does not require three appointments a week. When I first started with Dr. Chang in August, I went about every three weeks. Around the New Year I started going about once a month. Soon after I began therapy, I noticed great improvements.
She spends a good amount of time assessing, treating, and explaining any issues. I have learned so much from her about the connections between organs, muscles, and ligaments as well as the effects of emotional stress on the body. I have learned how to pay attention to my body's visceral reactions and protect myself from stress. Near the end of each session, she explains any "homework" in detail, and sends a detailed email with the home regimen. This work includes breathing exercises, visualization, and gentle exercises.
Dr. Chang has a great way with people. She is gentle mannered, patient, and understanding. She gives you her full attention and the whole experience is very relaxing! You'll enjoy the relaxing music (zen station on Pandora) and the aromatherapy diffuser! Thanks to Dr. Chang my issues have dramatically improved. I'm able to run and bike again without any concerns.
In addition, I have fewer headaches and less back pain. I highly recommend her to every woman who has given birth, regardless of if you did it vaginally or through a c-section. I would definitely visit Dr. Chang before opting for bladder or other pelvic surgery. Her treatment is not scary or invasive and she will help you improve your health.'- Ann
'My experience with Dr. Chang has exceeded my expectations.
I have had IBS symptoms for about 25 years. Over the past 15-20 years, I have experienced fecal incontinence. I sought help from various professionals; everyone from a nutritionist to a gastrointestinal doctor to a hypnotherapist to mental health professionals. Dietary changes provided some relief, but I continued to experience incontinence, especially during high impact exercise. I had become extremely frustrated and was feeling hopeless about finding a solution.
While listening to a podcast about pelvic floor physical therapy, the guest mentioned how incontinence could be linked to pelvic floor issues. I sought help from Dr. Chang following the birth of my child. I was interested in making sure my pelvic floor was healthy enough for me to return to exercise, but also asked about my incontinence issue.
My experience with Dr. Chang has been empowering and life changing. She has an incredible amount of knowledge about the human body. Her ability to view the body as a whole with interconnecting parts is an asset to her patients. Dr. Chang is patient, she is kind, she is empathic and nonjudgmental, and she is extremely knowledgeable. She has created a custom treatment plan with exercises specific to my needs and adjusts it, as needed.
Above all, she has empowered me to make positive changes and she has given me hope. For the first time, I have seen a significant reduction in my symptoms. I have learned much more about myself than expected, physically and emotionally (and how the two components are intertwined). While my treatment with Dr. Chang is not yet over, I will forever be grateful to her and I would highly recommend her.' - Joann
'I have had pelvic pain for years due to endometriosis. I have seen physical therapists who helped to a degree. More recently, the pain along with associated nerve pain around my body, intensified to the point where each day was a battle. Dr. Chang truly listened to my story and my body. She has an entirely different approach that step by step dealt with peripheral issues until finding and addressing the issue at the source - adhesions. The treatment is gentle and homework mandatory, yet tailored and easy to follow. Dr. Chang is responsive, supportive and realistic. I have gone from being unable to walk without pain to exercising comfortably and regularly. Treatment here has been worth every minute and every cent!!' - Amber H
'Whole Body Wellness and Dr. Chang are a blessing!! I travel over an hour to my sessions with Dr. Chang and know they are completely worth it! Dr. Chang’s unique approach has helped me tremendously. Over the course of six months, Dr. Chang has helped ease not only the physical aspects of my chronic pain but also the psychological, which has been a HUGE part in my healing process. I can say wholeheartedly that I will continue routine check in’s with Dr. Chang throughout my life! Thank you so much, Dr. Chang!' - BF
'Dr. Chang's technique was highly effective yet gentle in healing my pelvic floor weakness. She was also able to release other pain and pressure in other parts of my back and body. She really understands how the body works and gives easy to follow exercises to do at home. I highly recommend her!'- Natasha
'Whole Body Wellness is such an accurate name for this business. Dr. Yuchin Chang has so much knowledge about how all the parts of our body work together. Her gentle, non invasive technique helped me to overcome a chronic problem that I had tried many unsuccessful treatments to cure.' - Lisa
''With a five minute physical, Yuchin was able to give me explanations for all my symptoms. She even told me about the symptoms I hadn’t discussed with her. Her certifications and credentials show in her work. It was huge for me psychologically to understand where my problems were coming from.
After two months of working with Yuchin, my condition has significantly improved. My confidence in being able to do normal, everyday things without pain is coming back.' - A
'I am a physical therapist who has struggled with pelvic pain for over 5 years. After minimally successful treatment by myself and other physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists I was referred to Dr Chang.
I have been very impressed with her knowledge and expertise and also her listening skills and kind manner. Over the course of 3-4 treatments my pain and symptoms were significantly reduced and my quality of life and ability for self-care significantly increased. I highly recommend!' - Rob C
'I was blessed to have received good follow up news after chemotherapy and pelvic radiation, but for almost three years I tried just about everything to find relief from the collateral damage of the treatment. I spent a small fortune bouncing from one doctor to another looking for understanding and a recommendation, and I spent hours researching on my own.
As you can imagine, I began to loose hope and I started to believe that I would need to accept a lifelong chronic condition. I have only been a patient at Whole Body Wellness for 6 weeks and already I have experienced improvement and maybe even more importantly, I have hope.' - Patricia
'I began to see Yuchin a little over a year after my son's birth to address pelvic floor issues that had made me very uncomfortable and interfered with my daily life. From the first visit I could tell how incredibly knowledgable and talented she was and began to see improvement within a few visits.
She continued to work with me over a period of 8 months where she helped me heal through a combination of office visits and exercises to do at home on my own. Each visit she checked in with me about progress and adjusted her work accordingly.
I cannot recommend Yuchin enough and am so grateful I found her!' - Amy
'As an MS patient I see many physicians and have been to many physical therapists over the years. Yuchin is one of the most dedicated and caring medical providers I have ever worked with. She listens to my issues and asks questions to ensure she fully appreciates the problems.
Her treatment is creative, thoughtful and individualized. Instead of just treating symptoms, she takes the whole body into consideration and looks for the cause of the problems to focus her treatment. She asks for feedback on how the treatment is going and modifies her approach as needed to ensure optimized results. She is gentle and very effective.
Yuchin is very professional and works to expand her skill sets by frequently attending classes and continuing her education to ensure she does the best for her patients. I would not go to any other physical therapist.
I highly recommend her to anyone with chronic pain or pelvic floor issues. You will not find anyone who is better trained or more effective than Yuchin.' - Catherine
'In the course of three years, I’d been to six physical therapists specializing in pelvic pain but found no long-term relief. Having been an athlete all of my life, becoming sedentary was an awful feeling, both physically and mentally.
Thankfully, a PT I’d been seeing suggested I see Yuchin and I went for an evaluation. She immediately put me at ease, and throughout the course of her evaluation made me feel confident that she could help for the long-term.
She listened to my goal of getting back on my bike and formulated a plan which includes an at-home program that has been very helpful.
Yuchin took my entire body into consideration and used dry needling and other techniques that no other therapists had offered. I could tell from the start that she is passionate about getting to the root of the problem and she has not let me down.
She’s also addressed some orthopedic injuries I have and is very knowledgeable about different techniques. I’m so pleased with my results that I brought my father to see her.
If you’re looking for a knowledgeable and caring physical therapist, I highly recommend Yuchin Chang.'- Hillary
'Dr. Yuchin Chang has such an amazing bedside manner which is of utmost importance when you're dealing with physical therapy. Her specialized treatment is not just in the area of your pain but correcting other areas that affect your issue. She is an expert on whole body and how it interacts and after sessions with her and following her recommendations of work at home, changes are very evident.
I was new to physical therapy and this experience is unlike many I've heard from others. There is an aura of comfort and relaxation and she truly cares and loves what she does.
The improvement has been such that I feel normal again. She offers needling which I was new to but found extremely helpful. I have not a negative thing to say about my time with Whole Body Wellness Physical Therapy.' - Dianne V
'I have longstanding complicated health issues including Parkinson’s, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. I have been fortunate to have worked with MANY health practitioners over the past 15 years. I rank Yuchin as one of the most effective practitioners I have ever worked with in helping me manage my issues.
Yuchin is unsurpassed in her willingness to partner with me as a patient. Noone knows my body and its ever evolving issues as well as I do. At every appointment, Yuchin meets me where I am at in the moment and figures out a way to meet my needs in a way that puts me on a path to improvement.
Her demeanor and approach is always gentle yet EXTREMELY effective. Yuchin has successfully released internal adhesions from surgeries and radiation damage. She is able to remove obstacles in my system that are in the way of my body’s healing, and she is very adept at instructing me on how I can help myself at home between visits.
Yuchin takes a whole body approach. A pain in one body part may have a surprising root cause elsewhere. She is a talented medical detective and a healer.' - Susie B
'I met Yuchin approximately 1 year ago while receiving PT for an exacerbation of chronic neck and back pain from starting an exercise program.
For more than 25 years, I have suffered from with neck and back pain. From day one, it was evident to me that Yuchin’s skill level far exceeds the credentials she holds.
She is truly gifted in assessing her patients holistically and defining the root cause of their pain. I have highly recommended her to friends and family. She is a great listener and offers many treatment options. Thanks to Yuchin I continue to improve, and have more good days than ever before.
If you are suffering from any type of chronic pain, call her today! It will be the best
decision you could ever make to regain your health.' - Grace
'I have been with Yuchin for a year and a half.
She has guided me through the pelvic PT experience which can be daunting having no prior understanding about it. Her knowledge and willingness to educate herself to help her patients is exceptional! Her expertise has really helped me heal and I am forever thankful for her help!' - Kristy M
'I came to see Dr. Chang for chronic back pain that had been treated many times by other physical therapists and physicians.
Her treatment has brought me long term relief that previously eluded me.
Dr. Chang looks at and treats your whole body- taking the time to find the underlying cause(s) of the pain and applying her vast knowledge and experience to treatment.
She is compassionate, knowledgeable and highly skilled.' - Pam
