“For anyone who works out or trains in martial arts, I would highly recommend Dr. Bui”
I am a mixed martial artist with focus in areas such as: Boxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). My visit to Renu Chiropractic
happened when my neck was tweaked in BJJ — I could hardly sit up in bed as my neck muscles that allows your chin to bend towards your chest was completely stiff.
The mobility was very limited and I had a hard time turning it left and right. I almost booked a trip to urgent care because of this but knew they would offer me muscle relaxers which would make me sleepy and unproductive.
Instead, I found Renu Chiropractic was only a few miles from my house and based on the google reviews I decided to give it a shot.
The outside of the establishment looked a bit run down and old but surprisingly the interior was tastefully decorated. The staff was very polite and the environment, calming.
I expressed my concerns to Dr. Bui and informed him I did not want a direct neck adjustment in fear of agitating the area further. He instead worked on areas of my back which I had no idea were misaligned and swollen. All those left jabs I’ve thrown had inflamed the area under my left scapula. The pressure and massage that he provided really tenderized the area and gave a “hurts so good” kind of feeling.
He worked around my shoulders and base of my neck where my muscles were compensating for the stiff neck. The adjustments to the base of the neck relieved a lot of tension I had holding my neck up. The longer he worked the more my confidence grew in his abilities and I eventually let him adjust my neck. He only used small movements but they made some good popping sounds.
By the end of the session my neck mobility had gone from 30% to 70% — The day after my neck was about 85% on its own.
Not only does he have a good understanding of the human body but he also has a lot of awareness of body mechanics in sports. I plan on coming back for maintenance work on my back.
Thank you Dr. Bui,
