Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Adrianne Beck. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your musculoskeletal needs. I
I was born in San Diego, California. I enjoy doing hands-on treatment so initially got my bachelor's degree in physical therapy. After working as a physical therapist for a few years, I decided to go on to medical school to become a physiatrist, which is a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation. I am married and have a young daughter. I enjoy exercising and reading.
About my practice
I practice physical medicine at the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center. I make use of a multidimensional approach to deal with your pain problems and musculoskeletal issues, which may include the prescription of heat, ice, cold, electrical stimulation, acupuncture or chiropractic, and exercise. I order tests such as MRIs and X-rays to detect such problems as herniated discs and scoliosis. I perform electromyograms and nerve conduction tests to diagnose nerve problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome. I am knowledgeable about alternative and complementary medicine and do trigger point and joint injections and myofascial release.
How I thrive
I stay well by laughing and doing volunteer work. I enjoy walking, running and swimming. I have a positive outlook on life, which includes being grateful and having a strong faith in God.
