About Our Practice
Dr. Shin is an extremely compassionate physician who fully understands the importance of function (or lack of) and quality of life. She believes a detailed and thorough history and examination is essential in treating issues, as well as preventing recurrence of issues once they are resolved. Each person is treated specifically according to the individual findings of the detailed history and examination, rather than giving every back or neck pain patient the same treatment. This enables Dr. Shin to have success with patients even after having failed physical therapy, epidurals, surgery, and even after patients have tried treatment over many years with multiple physicians including other physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, pain management, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and rheumatologists. Dr. Shin also takes the time to explain the diagnoses and biomechanics of the issues and treatment plan in order for the patient to understand how s/he can improve the issues or avoid exacerbations. This is essential for the patient's success in treatment and the patient is also expected to play an active role in his/her care. Follow-up and re-evaluation is necessary in order to problem solve issues or enhance treatment as the symptoms evolve from the care given or the activities of the patient.
