Dr King first treated me in early 2020 for intense chronic pain due to a repetitive knee injury from sports and serious over-use. His sports medicine knowledge helped me to make an informed decision regarding how best to treat my knee without another surgery. His skill and technique in effecting treatment was painless and its self-healing properties lasted over two years. May have lasted longer if I hadn't continually abused it again. Recently, Dr King accurately evaluated my condition, painlessly relieved excessive knee fluid that was causing moderate pain and very limited mobility, then set me up for a repeat treatment based on the previous treatment series and its high success. I am pain-free in the meantime. Thank you, Dr King!
