Universal City Medical Wellness Group

We are a medical group specializing in physical medicine, with uniquely trained and talented chiropractors on staff.

Our doctors and chiropractors have successfully treated a variety of conditions including those of professional dancers, musicians and athletes, and including hand/wrist problems such as carpal tunnel, shoulder problems, sciatica, and the whole catalog of musceloskeletal complaints.

Additionally, Thai massage therapy is available next door, provided by a Thai masseuse that some of our patients report is quite good (though she is unaffiliated with our group). Her name is Jasmine and her practice is "Jasmine Thai Massage".

We serve the Hollywood & North Hollywood areas and those surrounding them, near the 101 freeway (pictured at right) including Toluca Lake, Burbank, Studio City, and the Valley. We are also fairly convenient to Los Angeles and West Hollywood since we are located just up from the Hollywood Bowl.

Often we treat people from other parts of the country and around the world through word of mouth referrals, which gives us great pride, treating patients who may have heard of our uniquely specialized work or who prefer a succesful complimentary alternative medical pracice with extensive experience using non-invasive healing modalities.   [Hollywood Freeway Image Thanks To R.

You may be new to the area, or just be unsure about travel times, traffic and other logistical matters regarding your term of care.

The 101 Freeway a.k.a. "The Hollywood Freeway" (displayed in R. Duran's Flickr photo above) and the 134 and 170 freeways, offer convenient access to our facility. You can exit at Universal Center Driver (near Universal Studios), Barham Blvd., or Lankersham Blvd.

Also Please note; Ventura Blvd. (Boulevard) becomes Cahuenga Blvd. (Boulevard) West on its way southward into Hollywood. SO travelling south on Ventura Blvd. you will be headed in our direction. A good landmark is the NISSAN dealership right across the boulevard from us. (the biggest NISSAN dealership in the world?).

here is a map so you can estimate travel.

Additionally, since we do understand that you may want to receive the best medical, physical therapy, or chiropractic services without travelling so far that you might exacerbate your condition the following is a list of zip codes and cities and towns very near to us. If you are not located in these areas, we may provide a referral to another doctor in your area known to us.

If you are not familar with the Los Angeles area (as I wasn't) the following municipalities and zip code areas are roughly within 30 minutes of our facility in normal traffic:
Pasadena CA 91106, 91103 & 91104
Altadena CA 91101

More About Universal City Medical Wellness Group.

Universal City Medical Wellness Group is a multi-disciplinary medical practice with a focus on family medicine, physical medicine, sports medicine, rehab and holistic medicine.

We treat a variety of family health concerns including sore throats, ear aches, bronchitis, etc., and approach many medical problems, acute and chronic, using a complementary holistic approach when appropriate with vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, herbs, amino acids, essential oils, probiotics, enzymes, extracts, fiber, and plant sterols.

For our patients with physical complaints our treatment includes moist heat, infrared heat, electro-stimulation, cold laser, manual therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilization, neuromuscular re-education, therapeutic exercises and activities, traction (intersegmental traction, manual traction, automated traction on our leander table, as well as flexion-distraction.) In so doing we approach these complaints at their root cause rather than treating only the symptom itself.   [Autism Poster Image Thanks To sunsets_for_you at Flickr.com.]

Our practice has over twenty years of experience and success stories and we have worked with many celebrities in Hollywood, professional musicians as well as profexxional athletes, dancers, and vocalists.

We are constantly improving our medical acumen with continuous scientific research in related areas, and feel that in the future when practices such as ours that use a holistic, preventive approach become the norm, we will fix our broken healthcare system.

If you or anyone you know should have a medical concern, we invite you to call us for a free consultation at your earliest convenience. It is our greatest hope and pleasure to assist you with your medical needs.

Best in Health,

David M. Rekar, M.D.
