CHRONIC PAIN? INJURY? RESTRICTED MOVEMENT? 

Our doctors help athletes, hard workers, and everyday people who experience discomfort or lost function to excel at the sport of life. We are sport therapists who keep you living and performing at your best. 

Could not recommend these guys more for muscle-related pain. I’ve seen both Dr. Mulhall and Dr. Hapka for various (different) issues that have crept up over the last 4 years, and they have always been able to correctly diagnose the problem and treat it - usually in one visit.

The staff was friendly. My session started on time. I was able to complete the majority of required new patient information on-line prior to my visit. Dr. Hill did an excellent job of diagnosing my core issue(s) and applying a variety of approaches to start me on the path to recovery.

A NOVEL APPROACH TO PATIENT CARE

Our doctors take their time to talk to you and learn about your problem, analyze your movements and uncover the root cause of each individual complaint. Once the source of discomfort is detected, we will use the most appropriate treatment(s) from our unique tool box quickly resolving symptoms while keeping you active.

We spend time teaching you about your condition and how to treat it yourself at home which speeds your recovery and reduces or eliminates your need for recurring visits. If we're not seeing progress after a couple treatments, we will provide you with the proper referral. We don't care who gets you results as long as you get them!

“I’d been to four other doctors (my PCP, chiropractor, and two acupuncturists) no one could relieve my constant shoulder & arm pain. During my first visit with Dr Hapka he spent an hour listening to me, muscle testing and gentle exploration in search of the mystery source of my pain. He found the problem and gave me 3 simple exercises. Within just a few days my pain has gone from constant to occasional and from an 8 to a 3.”

We treat you as a whole

Pain, discomfort, and loss of mobility manifest in different ways from all over the body. If something doesn't feel right or something is affecting the way you move, come on in - we'll trace down the cause, teach you about what we find and get to work quickly cleaning up your condition. Many times the pain you feel is the result of altered movement/motion in a different part of your body. We love solving these puzzles, giving you lasting results by treating the root cause instead of just the symptom.

If you have been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal condition, we will approach it with new eyes to assess where your symptoms are coming from and use non-invasive, hands-on therapies to bring resolution to your discomfort. Even if you've been living with a condition for years, often times our doctors can provide relief by identifying and reducing tissue adhesion, and pinpointing movement imbalances or muscle weaknesses that have developed as a result of long-term over-compensation or low level muscle tension.
