Scottsdale Vibes Podcast: Getting to Know Hope Clinic
February 11, 2022 by Kezia
This day and age, we all suffer from some kind of pain, whether it is from injury, illness, or something alike. Yet, we tend to not take good care of ourselves. Dr. Oei of Hope Clinic is here to help, and he specializes in healing the pain from the inside out, not with injections, but with a permanent healing process. The name says it all—Hope Clinic truly gives us hope.
As a medical doctor, Dr. Okky Oei started off in the ‘70s. One thing that sparked his interest in the area of pain management was his own experience he had in medical school. He injured his back, and when he sought treatment for it, all he got was drug prescriptions. Soon enough, he realized that his body reacted sensitively toward prescriptions and could not handle too much of it.
This led him to think that there had to be a better way to manage pain without using drugs. Medicines and injections are helpful, but most of the time, they do not fix the root cause of chronic pain. He studied medicine and pain management using different modalities for over eleven years. People with chronic pain began coming to him, and in many cases, pain really affected their quality of life. Dr. Oei dove deeper into studying the human body and the way it works, and eventually, came up with non-invasive and non-opioid treatment methods using advanced technology, including microcurrent electrical stimulation modality.
In this podcast, Alicia Haygood shares her experience with Hope Clinic after dislocating her shoulder due to snowboarding. She sought treatment elsewhere, and although it did not hurt as much anymore, her shoulder still felt weak. Her brain blocked the pain, but her mobility was not improved. Eventually, she came to Hope Clinic and got treated using microcurrent electrical therapy. Afterwards, she felt a lot better—and she stated that, “My mobility had turned a complete 180 since I came to see you [Dr. Oei].”
Dr. Oei explains a little more about how the human body works, and the way these non-invasive modalities help the body to heal itself. Aside from microcurrent electrical stimulation, Hope Clinic also offers a balancing treatment to help people with insomnia and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
