EXPERIENCE WHAT OTHERS SAY.







"... SETS HIM APART FROM OTHERS IN HIS FIELD."

"It is rare today to work with an individual who possesses Victor's combination of knowledge, innovation, and deep care for his patients. In my experience, his ability to think outside of the box in his approach towards treating injuries is what sets him apart from others in his field."

"IT'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE ... I AM STILL PLAYING HEALTHY"

“Four years ago, I gave up pursuing professional tennis and quit the game almost completely due to numerous injuries. In 2013, I decided to pursue my dream but this time I knew my health was my top priority. At this point I saw Victor for the first time and noticed immediately that his treatment was different from any other physical therapy - it's a completely different experience. My sessions are longer, more focused and individualized. It's one-on-one treatment from beginning to end where Victor's determination to get you healthy is always at the forefront. Before I saw him, I have had a career ending elbow injury, a shoulder injury, hip, lower back and wrist injuries. We have worked through all of them and I am still playing healthy a year later. With my line of work I know this is only possible through treatment done with an open mind, versatility, and sincerity. Victor directly influenced my career, way of life and love for the game. Thank-you!”

"I FELT GREAT AND INJURY-FREE FOR THE FIRST TIME ..."

"I was losing my battle with a chronic calf injury and nagging shoulder pain. Then I found Dr. Chang.  In one visit he addressed my muscle injury with Trigger Point Dry Needling, identified and corrected a movement imbalance in my pelvis, and showed me a few shoulder exercises to increase my mobility.  After my treatment I felt great and was injury-free for the first time in a long while.  I had a breakout season with PRs at two different triathlon distances and completed another Ironman. Thanks Dr. Chang!"

"DR. CHANG IS THE REASON I AM PAIN FREE ..."

"I would like to thank Dr. Chang for the positive experience and extraordinary care that he provided me. I was living with immense pain for 8½ months due to a herniated disc and fractured spine and I wasn’t improving after several treatments from my original physical therapist. Dr. Chang provided me thorough explanations for everything; he was kind and attentive, and most of all, provided superb medical treatment.

The difference between my original therapist and Dr. Chang was that Dr. Chang took time to work with me. Each session was an hour in length and on occasion, even more. Most physical therapists are bound by insurance companies to work with clients for only 20 minutes.

Most importantly, Dr. Chang also educated me on my injury and made sure I understood my own anatomy. He used 3-Dimensional skeletons to teach me how various movements affect my body and he taught me the proper stretches and exercises required to alleviate my pain. In addition, he taught me proper posture techniques for putting less pressure on my back. He explained thoroughly what “core” is all about. Dr. Chang was patient with me and had ways of explaining things in layman’s terms that helped me understand my injury. If I had any question at all, I was instructed to email him directly.

Dr. Chang is the reason I am pain free.  He made me a stronger athlete and more knowledgeable about my body and injury. I know now which preventions to take.  I am now aware of the right and wrong way of exercising. In summary, Dr. Chang is an excellent doctor who has really changed my life."

"THE RESULTS HAVE AMAZED ME ..."

"I had a hip replacement about 10 months ago and developed a few issues with trigger points or muscle knots. The hip replacement was working great but my personal situation required a boost. 

I began to see Dr. Victor Chang at Movement Balance & Sports Performance. Dr. Chang is very professional in his manner and his specialized training is especially helpful to me.  With his individual practice he is able to employ a technique that has helped me immensely.  That is, Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN), which uses thin, solid filament needles to deactivate and desensitize trigger points and knots in muscles.  

I have seen him twice over a two week period and he is able to devote the entire hour for each appointment to my situation. The results have amazed me. I have leap frogged my previous condition that wasn’t improving after nine visits over a one month period in the traditional physical therapy office format.  It’s so good in fact that I’m pushing out my next visit to a 3-6 week timeframe.  Dr. Chang is very flexible in scheduling his time and quite responsive to emails. Thanks Victor!"
