Dr. Anne practices a holistic, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment to quickly alleviate chronic and/or acute pain and muscle tension. She graduated from California State, Long Beach and obtained her doctorate in chiropractic medicine in 1993 from Southern California University of Health Sciences or formerly known as Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. She has been a practicing chiropractor for 20+ years and opened the Pacific Spine & Sports Wellness Center in 1998.
Dr. Anne uses gentle and safe adjustment techniques centered on the individual’s specific needs. Her comprehensive understanding of exercise kinesiology and the musculoskeletal and nervous system is what makes her method unique. She is able to relieve most sports injuries and correct even the most compressed or misaligned spine with her broad diagnostic skills in biomechanics, postural analysis and soothing soft tissue work.
Dr. Anne is truly compassionate and caring for each and every one of her patients and is committed to helping families live a healthy, balanced and pain-free lifestyle. She currently resides with her husband and two daughters in Tustin and enjoys being actively involved with both daughters’ volleyball programs at the beach and in the gym.
Dr. Tran’s passion for helping others comes from a deeply personal place. “From a young age,” she tells us, “I struggled with not being able to have a regular menstrual cycle. My mother took me to several doctors. They all told me the same thing; it was not normal for a girl my age to go without menstruating for months at a time. My mother then took me to an eastern medicine doctor. Soon after starting my herbal medicine and Acupuncture treatments, I began to have a normal, monthly menstrual cycle. From that point on, I began a passionate pursuit into the study of eastern medicine. This passion has followed me as I have entered my graduate program. I am extremely proud of my ability to help others achieve optimum wellness by using a non-invasive, holistic approach. I am very excited to be working with Dr. Anne and everyone on the Pacific Spine & Sports team.”
Dr. Kim’s signature treatment includes the combination of medical acupuncture, meditation and essential oils. Other Ancient Chinese Medical techniques such as Cupping, Moxibustion or Tuina may also be used.
Dr. Kim embraces the concept of integration of both Eastern and Western medicine to find the best means of treatment for her patients. Her treatment philosophy is treating the whole person, addressing various aspects of her patient’s lives. Collectively working with the team at Pacific Spine and Sport and her patients she is able to help patient’s achieve balance in many areas of their lives through lifestyle modifications.
