Dr. Younghoon Kim, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS
Dr. Younghoon Kim's career began as a Physical Therapist in 1998 after graduating from Sahmyook University in Korea, soon moved to the United States of America, finished his Master’s Degree at Loma Linda University in 2001, and earned his Doctorate Degree at Western University in 2007.
Dr. Kim is a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist in Physical Therapy from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) since 2005. He took various manual therapy courses and felt the need to develop more techniques to improve patient care. He developed the Angular Joint Mobilization®(AJM) technique from working with frozen shoulder patients who responded better with his new technique, and developed the Angular Soft Tissue Mobilization® (ASTM) technique from patient’s better response to different directions of soft tissue mobilization with movement. He also developed the Angular Tension Release® (ATR) technique to release tensional tight soft tissue in the upper trapezius which didn't respond to soft tissue mobilization.
Dr. Kim is the owner of Young Physical Therapy, Inc. Specialty Center in Lancaster, California, USA, which he began in 2008.
Dr. Kim and his wife Michelle are very blessed with two energetic young sons, Nathan and Aidan.
