Dystonia Support & Advocacy Group Of San Diego County Meeting

Join the Dystonia Support & Advocacy Group of San Diego County as we celebrate the group’s 30 year anniversary and hear a very informative presentation from Dr. Joseph Chung who is a movement disorder specialist, an osteopath and a cranial-sacral specialist. The title of his presentation is “One Doctor’s Viewpoint on the Effectiveness of Medication & Exercise in the Treatment of Dystonia.” Dr. Chung worked in the Dept. of Neurology at Kaiser-Permanente in Los Angeles for 21 years before leaving to go into private practice last January. He uses a unique exercise regimen that teaches the body to reflexively return to normal. Both his wife and his father are Oriental Medicine doctors so he is familiar with alternative types of therapies as well. Lunch is generously provided by Jessica Sorenson of ALLERGAN. No cost to attend, but RSVP’s are greatly appreciated to Martha Murphy at mmurphy582@gmail.com or 619-582-1961. Website: www.dystoniaofsandiego.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/dystoniaofsandiego
