Fun Facts

In his spare time, John is also a professional disc jockey and has performed in venues across the country as well as on cruise ships. He loves to get people moving both in the clinic and the dance floor. He still does private parties and weddings from time to time! Check out his alter ego here:


Engaged, listened to me, didn't assume anything, clear and focused questions about my history; explained possible causes of my symptoms; explained what he was going to do, why he was going to do it, what the outcome should be or could be. Nice all around guy in general. It was my first time using Movement-X and I will definitely call on John again if I get myself all up in a tizzy again. Thank you to my son Eddie Ernst, PTA in KS/MO area who found him for me.

I went to Dr. Huang for an issue with my knee, and he gave me a number of exercises over the course of several months that were very helpful! I also did some general wellness sessions with him as my knee improved. I felt that he listened to my concerns, and understood my fitness needs as climber. He is knowledgeable and personable, and I highly recommend his services!

Rachel, Feb 28

I was very relieved to find a physical therapist who is attuned to climbers. I have used physical therapy through my network, but they're not really set up to do sustained therapy. And, even though clinically sound, my in network people had difficulty understanding the unique needs of our sport. John was a game-changer. I saw significant progress in treating my nagging injuries for the first time in years. It was totally worth it. John knows how to ask the right questions and then tailor a program specifically for you. When I felt stalled, he adjusted the program and the results were immediate. I can't really say enough. He is a superb clinician and an outstanding person.

Robert, Mar 10

John has been helping rehab from a broken leg and I feel much stronger since I have been working with him! He really listens to my complaints, and communicates with me to help me better understand what's going on with my body, and how to improve it. One of the most valuable aspects of the service he provides is that he caters my exercises to my activities, which are climbing and hiking. It's really important to me to have a PT that understands these activities and gives me the tools to improve my movement with this in mind.

Heather, Mar 21

As a recreational athlete and fitness instructor, I was VERY impressed with Dr. John's patient care. He is extremely detailed in his movement evaluations AND covers the entire body (something I believe is missing from many rehab settings). I left with a better understanding of my current movement patterns, dysfunctions, and past injuries and a RX for exercises and movements to integrate into my routine to keep my body safe, strong, and healthy; ultimately helping me prevent future injuries so I can continue living the active lifestyle I love the most! I have sent many clients to Dr. John and plan to continue sending them to him for both rehabilitation and movement evaluations! Thank you Dr. John! You're the best!

Jillian, Apr 09

John has done a fantastic job rehabbing my elbow tendonitis. I went from being completely unable to climb to feeling stronger than ever in my climbing in just a few weeks. John provides a wide array of exercises and stretches that focus on rehabbing my specific injury while training all the neighboring muscles and tendons in a full body approach. Definitely would recommend seeing John!

James, Apr 18

Dr. John was a big help when I fractured my ankle. I needed a PT that understood the demands of rock climbing. Dr. John set me up with appropriate exercises through all the phases of PT. He was encouraging and friendly. This made our sessions something to look forward to each week. John also helped me with my wrist. I had chronic pain in my wrist whenever I would climb. The exercises that John gave me fixed the problem. It felt like a miracle and I was able to do things I hadn't been able to in years. Dr. John was also very informative and told you why to do certain exercises and how they would help. This helped me stay motivated and bought in through the healing process.

Dan, Apr 18

As I fitness professional I can say with confidence that Dr. John really does have a firm grasp on how to help me recover from my back injury and other mobility issues. I'm glad I went to see him.

Ahmed, Apr 27

John really knows his stuff. His breadth of knowledge in orthopedics in general as well as climbing specific PT & training is extensive. He’s helped me immensely not only with staying injury free, but also with maximizing my climbing training. His passion for what he does, his commitment to excellence, and his dedication to his clients is plain to see. He is always happy to answer any questions I have and to give me advice, and is extremely thorough. I look forward to continuing to work with him and would highly recommend him!

Stacey, Apr 28

I found John through the local climbing community and came to him with two goals in mind: 1) fix long-ignored plantar fasciitis so that I can run and 2) bring a sprained ankle back up to the peak performance that climbing requires. Regarding #1: I had been fighting PF for multiple years but never saw a professional because I had been trying the exercises recommended on the internet to no avail. I finally got fed up with my lack of improvement, started seeing John, and he very quickly was able to figure out what was causing my PF (immobility, lack of strength, and poor movement patterns) and we have been working on getting me back to running pain-free again. Regarding #2: I sprained my ankle half a year ago, saw an in-network provider who was able to help me get back to normal life, but I had remaining discomfort and weakness that was limiting my climbing (and approach hikes!). John's exercises have been very successful at getting me back to where I was before the injury, if not stronger than I"ve ever been. Thanks for your detailed and focused attention on me! I'm amazed at how much our sessions have helped! (And amazed at how you can always find new exercises to challenge me with).

Jennifer, Apr 30

Dr John is awesome. His knowledge of my injury and how to rehab from it was incredible. I told him exactly how my body was feeling, what hurt, what didn’t, and he created a program for me that allowed me to resume my usual workouts and activities much sooner than I anticipated, including preventative measures. Not only that, he was super nice, understanding, flexible with scheduling and attentive. I would go back to him in a heartbeat for any future rehab and would 100% recommend him.

Shaan, Jun 27

John is great! He was really able to pinpoint certain areas we needed to focus on without me having to tell him. He was able to diagnose certain issues just from an assessment. I was really impressed with the progress I saw in the short time that I saw him. He gave me exercises to work on at home as well to supplement my visits. I like his approach to focus on the root cause and develop a strong foundation for injury prevention. He has really been a pleasure to work with and I got great results!

Marcus, Jun 27

I have played competitive sports my whole life and thus have been in and out of physical therapy for years and years. Dr. John has offered the most comprehensive treatment of anyone I've ever worked with. He takes his time to diagnosis the problem and provide a custom rehab plan to address the issues. Most importantly, he reviewed progress with each appointment and adjusted the plan accordingly. There were several appointments where I felt he was reading my mind because the adjustments he made were perfectly aligned with my thoughts and wishes. I highly recommend Dr. John to anyone that needs professional help to regain their health and movement.

Michael, Jul 07

Ahh finally some relief! I have been struggling with hip pain the past couple of years. So grateful that the universe blessed me with Dr. John. I have had a stellar experience with him right from the start. He was very thorough during the initial evaluation, was empathetic in understanding my experiences and concerns, and collaboratively we developed a treatment plan to address my core issues so that I could meet my goal of being able to run and hike again without any pain + discomfort. His professionalism and expertise are bar none, he is a down to earth person, is wise beyond his years (really learned a lot by spending time with him!). Also, the entire time, it was clear that he was genuinely invested in my health and getting me closer and closer to my goals. If you’re looking for a doctor of physical therapy to help you heal and start moving again free of pain, then contact Dr. John for a consultation. I promise you won’t regret it!

Jerry, Jul 16

I’m an avid runner who had a history of hamstring injuries… until I met Dr. John. After a diagnostic session with him, he was able to pinpoint the cause of my injury and described effective exercises to combat my physical issues. In the 3 months I worked with him, he continuously evaluated how my body responded to different movements and recognized habits that could predispose me to injuries. In addition to prescribing rehab workouts, he also guided me to do mobility work and foam rolling, which sped up the recovery process and improve my posture and balance. I have successfully run 3 races pain-free after seeing him. He is knowledgeable, kind and attentive. He’s the ultimate movement expert who takes physical therapy to the next level of care! I highly recommend Dr. John.

Gloria, Aug 06

After suffering some discomfort during training for triathlons, I reached out to some close Physical Therapist friends of mine to ask who they recommend, almost instantly they recommended John Huang, as they thought John’s approach would be best for me. From the beginning inquiry and throughout my physical therapy sessions with John, he has always been quick to respond to emails or text messages and always had a positive attitude when discussing my pains, questions, and general concerns. John’s hands on approach was something I had not quite experienced from a PT before, John’s approach was not just about fixing the issue, but also providing me the education, knowledge, and exercises that I could do on my own to stay healthy. I signed up for eight sessions with John, but following his instructions I saw vast improvements in my pain within a short time, even completing my IRONMAN Triathlon just six sessions in. Equally as important as treating my physical pains, John also put my mind at ease, giving me confidence that I could continue with my training while still focusing on my injury and injury prevention.

Steven, Aug 08

My several sessions with Dr. John were invaluable. I've learned information that I couldn't learn elsewhere (the Mobo board, using the maxi ball to roll out the foot, ways to strengthen to anterior tibialis, etc.). He really listens and helps you find solutions to maximize your rehabilitation.

Dong Hui, Aug 22

John has been awesome in helping me rehabilitate from a nasty ankle sprain. Before meeting with him I felt completely in the dark about what was going on in my body and why my mobility didn't seem to be improving much months after my injury occured. He's been great about helping me better understand not only my injury but other muscle groups that had been weakened while I was in my initial recovery, and working with me towards more holistic strengthening. Every exercise he gives, he explains clearly what it's targeting, and he really takes time to ensure you're comfortable and able to do the exercises effectively at home. He's knowledgeable, responsive, and clearly loves what he does, and I've improved tremendously since meeting with him. Would highly recommend John!

Faith, Sep 01

I have worked with Dr Huang for 3-4 months in attempts to heal a nagging finger injury and shoulder tendinitis. Dr Huang assessed my injuries and came up with a plan of attack to rehab the issues. The exercises at first didn't seem to do much, but after a while, I could tell that my posture had improved, and my fingers were slowly starting to feel a lot better. I had trusted the process, and now I don't even feel the issues that I had when I initially sought him out. Prior to seeing Dr Huang, I had gone to an orthopedist, and was prescribed PT with Coury and Buehler. I had done a few sessions with what seemed like the PT assistant who was also going between myself and a few other patients. The nice thing with Dr Huang's practice is that he dedicates the entire session to you and your rehabbing needs rather than switching around between patients and not fully understanding what is happening with you. I felt a lot more confident in his ability to treat my injuries than I did with Coury and Buehler simply because he was present, and he explained the cause of the issues in a scientific, concise and easy to understand manner. Additionally, Dr Huang was available for text and calls throughout the process outside of PT in case I had some questions regarding the assigned rehab exercises, or if I just needed some reassurance that the process was indeed working as planned. I am no longer seeing Dr Huang for PT because he has given me the knowledge and ability to better listen to my own body and be more aware of my limitations. Whenever I sustain another injury, or start to feel like something is about to get worse, I think of what he has taught me and it has yet to fail me. I am currently climbing better than I was prior to my injury and I'd like to think it is thanks to what Dr Huang has shown me.

Marc, Nov 08

I shattered my calcaneus bouldering at Stoney Point back in Aug 2020. After months of subpar PT twice a week for 20 minutes, I was making little progress where I was receiving care previously. Frustrated, I stopped going and tried to resume climbing even though I was still in pain. A year later, I decided to do 8 sessions with Dr. John, and now I have minimal pain! I really appreciated not just the quality treatment, but being taught how to help myself so that my progress would be sustained after treatment. It's helped me take care of my body to prevent future injury because I know what to pay attention to now. Most importantly, I'm climbing better even after my injury! Thanks Dr. John!

Serena, Dec 12

I finally found "The One"! Dr. John Huang is my 3rd physical therapist and the best by far. I struggled with getting results during my previous attempts at physical therapy. I'd see my insurance assigned therapist for 5-10minutes then be left under the supervision of an assistant who was also helping 4 other clients while I did my exercises. My problems were not as straight forward as a torn muscle or a whiplash injury, I ended up in physical therapy after my doctors had exhausted all other options to explain my strange constellation of symptoms. I had chronic issues that had stacked up on top of each other and were hard to make sense of. This means that building a program for me takes a lot of constant adjustment as each interconnected muscle issue is discovered. This was not something my network PTs could do. After having given up on PT for about a year, in August 2021 I decided to try to find a PT service that could give me the attention of a personal trainer, and I found John on the first try. I get his undivided attention for the entire session every time. While my other therapists would either rush me or cut me off in the middle of an explanation of my symptoms that week, John actually hears me out and has never once made me feel stupid for doing my best to explain what's going on. And I know some of it is strange! He takes the info he needs and we get to work on exercises that build on the work we've been doing. He is extremely knowledgeable and approaches his work knowing that the whole body is connected. He gives detailed and easy to understand explanations on how your body moves, which muscles are involved, and how one area can affect movement in another. He's even reintroduced some of the exercises that my other PTs had assigned to me, but because of the close attention he is able to give, he really corrects my form and makes sure I'm getting all the benefits of the movements he's giving me by checking in on how the exercise feels. So for the first time, I'm doing these exercises correctly and making real progress. He's been able to do all of this over video chat through MovementX which really impressed me. I was sure it was going to be a subpar experience since he wasn't in the same room with me, but it doesn't hold him back at all! He's consistently done better work than anyone I've seen in person. He's even been able to guide me to do a little bit of soft tissue work on myself when I need it. I now know I have a serious muscle imbalance between my left and right obliques that has basically been twisting me up like a tornado. We've corrected enough of the coordination between my lower abs and glutes that we're now able to work directly on the obliques with ease. My digestion is steadily improving and my pelvic pain is almost totally gone. We still have a long way to go, but Dr. John is making it happen!

Audrey, Feb 22

When I first came to John, I had been struggling for years with recurring pain and spasm in my neck and upper back, and now, with his help, I have a much more resilient neck than I thought was possible. My pain was keeping me from doing jiu jitsu for weeks or months at a time, and I wanted to get to a point where I could rely on my body to do the sport I love. I had tried massage and chiropractors for temporary relief, and even went to a different PT who provided little help. It seemed like people could only help with acute injury and that there was no way out of this chronic pain and instability. Then a friend suggested I try John, and it was revolutionary for me. He created a plan for me that incorporated simple exercises and helped me correct postural habits I was unaware of. He took my pain seriously, even on weeks it only showed up in small twinges. He really tailored it to me personally and took interest in my sport and the way I move. With what John taught me, my neck is stronger and I am able to recover more quickly from strain instead of falling into my old patterns.

Jessica, Mar 22

After a recent trip to DC, I returned home with an injured achilles (all the walking!) I figured it was something that would go away on its own with a little elevation and ice. Two weeks of painfully walking, hobbling up stairs, and missed workouts, I finally scheduled a telehealth session with John. I wish would've done it sooner! I'm pretty big advocate for physical therapy but was skeptical about telehealth. Turns out if you find the right physical therapist, the outcome will be phenomenal regardless of method of delivery. I felt relief immediately and was back to full function within two days. John is obviously an expert at his craft but is also extremely skilled at patient education and communication. My first patient experience with Dr. Huang and MovementX was absolute magic!

Mandy, Apr 13

Dr. John was incredibly helpful for my pulled muscle rehab over the last few weeks! He has clear explanations, straightforward exercises and kept me motivated through my workout routine. I appreciated how well he answered my questions and took the time to explain what the issues were through a software visualization tool. I would highly recommend Dr. John to anyone and will continue to see him if I run into any more challenges.

Samuel, May 03

John was great. We had a good session to review my vertigo symptoms and go over some techniques to minimize repeat episodes. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and also provided some workstation suggestions for better physical comfort and posture. Highly recommended!

Damon, May 13

Working with John has been a game changer for me. Recently I have been dealing with lower back pain to the point that I had to stop doing the sports I love, motorcycles, mountain biking and running and hiking. John listened and then spent the time needed to identify what was going on and then educated me what I needed to do to strengthen the right groups of muscles and break the cycle of reinjuring. For me this is a daily routine of the right stretching and exercises. Now I am back to doing the sports I love. Thank You John.

Steve, May 24

I am someone who has chronic back pain that adversely affects my everyday activities. I've tried a Chiropractor, acupuncture, and have even gotten multiple epidurals and could not find a long lasting solution. I didn't know where to go for help so my Pilates instructor, Jillian, recommended that I try physical therapy and refered me to Dr. Huang. It started with a simple telehealth call in which I described my symptoms and issues. He asked targeted questions and in very little time, Dr. Huang was able to understand what might be wrong with my back and was even able to offer up potential solutions and game plans. This interaction reassured me that he was knowledgeable and really wanted to help. Since I had been doing Pilates for a while, Dr. Huang was able to collaborate with my instructor to obtain more complex details on my back issues. We did our first physical evaluation in conjunction with one of my Pilates classes and our first in home session was one week later. Dr. Huang has been very accommodating to my busy schedule and has given me a weekly exercise routine that has improved my overall back health. He has even given me special pointers that include adjusting my work space to be more ergonomically friendly and showing me how I can use the items/spaces in my home to help with my daily exercises. My experience with Dr. Huang has been life changing. At the end of each session I am left feeling more and more confident about my back strength. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there are still some tough days. But the tools that Dr. Huang has given me make those harder days a bit easier and has given me confidence that I am on the road to being pain free.

Lindsey, Jun 01

I needed help for back pain after giving birth to my daughter. As a working mom I wasn’t sure how I was going to accommodate PT but Dr. John was able to come to my house for treatment. He was able to assess nuances of my movement I didn’t even realize were so detrimental for my back. We discussed the remodeling of not only the body but the brain after pregnancy which was eye opening for me. We worked on a few exercises live which was so helpful to know what to do and then he also gave me a program to follow up on my own. Dr. John listens and he knows what he’s doing to help you achieve whatever movement goals you have. I highly recommend him now to all my local friends in OC for PT!

Joanna, Jul 20

I started seeing Dr. John after about 2 months seeing a general physical therapist. I sustained a partial dislocation in my shoulder while climbing and wanted to see how far a general PT could take me as it was covered by insurance. After not seeing to much improvement as I started to get back on the rock wall I started seeing Dr. John. He's taught me so much about shoulder stability and how to move better that his Therapy sessions were beyond worth it for my future as a climber and now living with what I believe to be a partial labral tear. I've been able to work back up to the grades I was climbing a few months ago all while keeping in mind the things he's taught me. Ultimately I can say that this injury and his help has made me a better climber. I highly recommend giving Dr. John a chance for any sports specific needs as he's willing to work with you 1 on 1

Matthew, Aug 14

I really appreciate what you’ve done for me, Dr. John, especially when I was in so much knee and leg pain. I was afraid to move my knee around and was walking in a hunched manner. There was stiffness in my calves from underuse. I couldn’t get an appointment to see an orthopedic for a month. My trainer suggested making an appointment with you. It made all the difference. With your help, I was able to rehabilitate a lot faster eliminating atrophy. I appreciate that you kept me moving from the start. I could walk with good posture and the exercises built my surrounding muscles. Thank you so very much!

Rita, Aug 24

I have nothing but amazing things to say about John. He takes a very holistic approach to physical therapy and continues to work with you towards your goals even after your session is complete. He helped train my body to use and engage different muscles to alleviate the problem area pain. On top of being a great PT, John is a great person overall and I am happy to recommend him to everyone I know!

Brandon, Sep 13

I've attended multiple PT facilities due to prior injuries, and Dr. John Huang's practice is easily miles above all others I have been to. His knowledge of anatomy and how the body should move to prevent injury and maximize performance is vast. I first came to Dr. John a few months ago with a lower back injury from squatting. Within the first session, he was able to identify the core issues that contributed to my injury. He gave me the first few exercises that I needed to get my body to adapt to functioning in a way that is more optimal and relieve the stress I was putting on my lower back. Over the next few months, we met a few more times and each session I learned more about how I can adapt my training to prevent injury and optimize performance. At other PT facilities, it is common for them to take a one-size-fit-all approach which led to me not seeing results and feeling frustrated. From the beginning, Dr. John was serious about understanding my goals, developing a plan to meet those goals, and ensuring that I'm well informed along the way. I highly recommend Dr. John as he helped immensely with my fitness journey.

Cole, Oct 02

I first came to Dr. John for some finger pain due to climbing. He was able to easily diagnose the issue and put me on a finger rehab plan. After a couple weeks, fingers were good and I was back to climbing. Since then I've been back to Dr. John for knee pain, wrist pain and anything that pops up. I highly recommend Dr. John.

Clint, Oct 23

Dr. Huang is a wonderful and very knowledgeable physical therapist. He helped me with multiple injuries that I sustained from climbing competitively and I would never have recovered so quickly without his help.

Felix, Nov 06

John has been helping me recover from a back injury. Diagnosis was quick and easy and we got to work on healing then strengthening the affected area. Once I had mostly recovered, John helped get my body used to loading more onto my hips and get my body in order. Now I fly at the hips when throwing punches and have better core control when rock climbing.

Anhquan, Dec 06

It was great working with Dr John! Every session was always very informative and I felt like I could noticeable see and feel the progress each session! He was very easy to work with and talk to which made sessions more valuable to me. I had come looking for answers to rock climbing specific issues that had been impossible to figure out through all the free resources on the web and thankfully he was able to help me narrow it down and help me understand the root issue. I am now greatly, if not fully, improved and my confidence is back to near 100%! I’m excited to continue to use what I’ve learned to keep improving and live pain free! I highly recommend Dr John!

Andrew, Dec 07

I highly recommend Dr. John. He is a great listener and gives practical advice that is easy to follow. I recently took my step dad, Jack, in for a visit with Dr. John. Jack was worried about his knees. They were weak and he was afraid that exercising them would make it worse. To compensate he was walking hunched over and dragging his feet. Dr. John really listened to Jack's concerns (I was there eavesdropping =) Then, he had Jack walk for him the way he normally does. Dr. John saw the problem and gave Jack a very through explanation of what was happening and why. He had him walk using his heal first and practice it a few times, which made a huge difference. Then, he gave Jack exercises to do at home to strengthen his knees. Jack came home feeling so confident about what to do to get better and was no longer afraid of doing the wrong thing. I was THRILLED to see him walking heal first and standing up strait. This will be a game changer for his posture and mobility in the future. Thank you so much Dr. John!!

Jenna, Dec 17

John is the best PT I've ever had, and I will strongly recommend him to anyone dealing with sports injuries of any type. After 2 years of living an extremely sedentary life during the pandemic, I tried returning to rec sports 3-4 times a week, and ended up plagued by hamstring strains and pulls. These continued for 4 months while I saw other physical therapists. When I started seeing John, I was immediately impressed by his wholistic approach, and within 2 months I was back on the field feeling like my old self. Now it's 6 months later and I still haven't had any issues with my hamstring. John has also helped me see progress with mobility issues that I've dealt with for the last decade, and I truly believe that he can help me with any sports-related injury I may get in the future.

Kieran, Jan 19

Dr. Huang has helped tremendously getting me feeling better. I had been having lower back (herniated disc) and sciatic issues when I was referred to him by my chiropractor. John was able to help identify the root cause of my issues and through lots of hard work on strengthening my core, I am back to playing golf and enjoying a much better quality of life. I would highly recommend Dr. Huang!

John, Mar 16

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing some absolutely phenomenal physical therapy sessions, and I cannot stop raving about how incredible it was to my climbing friends. From start to finish, everything about the session was exceptional, and I am so grateful for the personalized care and attention that I received. What struck me immediately was how attentive and personalized was. He listened to my concerns and took the time to understand my unique problems and goals of the therapy, ensuring that every aspect of the session was tailored to my specific situation. This level of personalized care was truly remarkable and made me feel incredibly valued as a patient. Throughout the session, Dr John was incredibly knowledgeable and skilled. He walked me through each exercise and technique in a way that was easy to understand and follow, and they were always there to provide guidance and support as needed. I never felt rushed or overlooked, and the entire experience was completely focused on my well-being. As a result of this personalized care and attention, I left each session with the knowledge and sense of empowerment to improve my condition, giving me the confidence in my ability to overcome my physical challenges. I truly cannot recommend this physical therapy practice enough.

I have worked with John on a couple of occasions. He does very good work. This time, I went to him with a shoulder problem. I have now been performing the exercises he recommended for several weeks. The pain has decreased significantly and I am getting to where I can finally workout and study my martial arts like I usually do. He does very good work.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️♾️ Short Version: If you are suffering from any type of physical pain or limitation this is the place you need to go to! I was considering having a second back surgery, but with Dr. Huang's help that is no longer the case. The Long Version: I've been working with Dr. Huang for about 4 months now. When I came to him I was considering having a second back surgery (fusion at the L4-L5) I was in severe pain from the longest flare up I've had since back surgery which at that point had lasted about 3 months. I lived on the sofa with pillows propping my legs up. I could hardly move and I was miserable hence considering the second back surgery which I had been fighting since 2019. Up to the point before I had this big flare up I was active as much as my back allowed, but my body compensates as I have a dropfoot. After the flare up I could barely find my way to the kitchen & restroom. Working with him made me realize that there are parts of my body that lack the strength needed to support my body, and that my routine way of movement was exacerbating this. Mind you, I have had this injury since 2016 and had seen countless of "physical therapist" none who have ever been this detailed and taught me as much as he has. Also I'd like to point out that those physical therapist were all through workers comp and that Dr. Huang works for himself, but this is the reality of our health care system, when you visit those places you are just another patient and there is no individualize program. Which is why they failed for me. And yes, I am not recovered 100% obviously I've had one back surgery and have a dropfoot, but with his help I am back on my feet and getting stronger with my individualize program. And I trust that with his expertise I can have a better quality life in time. Due to the positive outcome I had with him in my first month, I brought my mom to see him as she had been suffering from foot and calf pain for over a year. She saw many doctors, and no one was able to help. After working with Dr. Huang for 1 month my mom's pain greatly reduce, and now she is feeling much better. I cannot express enough my gratitude for the commitment Dr. Huang has toward his patients. I wish we had more practices that shared his values. Thank you so much for all you do Dr. Huang.

I was looking for an MSI specialist but couldn't find one in my area. I traveled from Northern California just to see Dr. John Huang and I'm glad I did! I have on and off back pain from a herniated disc. Though I've been doing well I wanted someone who can give me the foundational knowledge and exercises that will put me on the path of a lifetime of strength and stability. We first did a virtual Zoom session as the initial visit. He was able to assess quite a bit virtually and give me exercises to work on. When I had our two hour in-person session a few weeks later he and I built on what we had started. Being able to see him in person helped him better observe how I move and notice subtle things about my posture and stiffness that lead to occasional back pain flare ups that I get. I've been doing the exercises he recommended and have noticed the benefits quickly after consistently doing the exercises. I also shared with him issues with cramping in my foot that I have had for as long as I can remember. He did some myofascial release work on the foot and then showed me M.E.L.T. exercises I can do to help alleviate the cramping. I purchased the M.E.L.T. balls and have been doing the exercises. Now my foot cramps happen less often! I believe it's important to work with a physical therapist not only for injuries but for continued improvement and correction of body movements. I look forward to traveling to see Dr. Huang regularly so I maintain a lifelong standard of functional strength.

Dr. John has been such a blessing! I've made tremendous progress working with him and have greatly enjoyed our sessions together. Physical therapy can be an uncomfortable process, but his ability to answer questions, provide feedback, and tailor a program that is individualized to my needs have made the process a breeze. He's personable and clearly has a genuine passion for helping people feel their best. If you have the opportunity to work with him, you won't regret it!

Dr. John is the best doctor I worked with throughout dealing with my injury. He is a great hang and extremely knowledgeable to the point that I was 100% confident in the rehab he prescribed for me. He got me back to climbing significantly faster than I expected after a severe ankle injury. He even opened up a line of communication for me to ask questions throughout the process, which made me feel cared for and not like just another patient. Go see him, you won’t regret it.
