About

Bio

I am a California product having been at UC Berkeley as an undergrad; UC Irvine for medical school; and UC Davis for my residency. My training is in Rehabilitation Medicine with subspecialty in Pain. I also have extensive occupational medicine experience. I have had practices in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Probably: during pregnancy the placenta releases Relaxin that loosens ligaments in preparation for delivery. You likely have mild osteitis pubis. Be sure to talk to your OB but it will likely improve post partum.

Sounds like spams: If you don't have numbness, weakness, or bowel or bladder trouble then it should get better with time. Ice every 2 hours and taking ibuprofen and or naprosyn (naproxen) can help. If not better after a week seek a doctor to assess your situation. Try to walk as much as you can and avoid sitting as it can be hard on a sore back,.
