Dr. Philip A OBrien DC
Heel Pain, Ankle Sprain
Our treatment philosophy is to take a comprehensive approach towards your return to optimal health. With the multitudes of different conditions we treat on a daily basis, experience dictates that although there are many similarities to treating similar conditions, there is no set protocol that can apply to everyone. Different patients have different problems with different needs, which mean different treatment options must be implemented specifically to you. For this reason, every treatment protocol is a custom treatment plan designed specifically for your needs to facilitate your return to a healthier, pain-free lifestyle.
We feel that a holistic approach is the best approach. In order to render the best treatment possible to return our patients to healthier lifestyle, one has to address the joint motion and function, the attachments to muscles, tendons and ligaments, and how they work synergistically to control normal motion. Overall, any one of these can result in the overall dysfunction in the body resulting in altered biomechanics and ultimately injury.
Dr. O’Brien is an avid proponents of a functional rehabilitation programs for every patient. Treating a dysfunctional joint complex or muscular dysfunction and not strengthening the weakened area, or changing the dysfunctional patterns to prevent further damage, will increase your incidence or recurrence. Most of our patients receive an in office or at home rehabilitation program.
At the office of Dr. Philip O’Brien, we function as a sport, spine and progressive rehabilitation clinic. Our goal is to not only alleviate pain, but more importantly, inspire and educate our patients to become active participants in their own well being.
Our approach is to not only focus on your pain, but also to treat the source of pain as compared to the symptoms. Through this comprehensive and structured approach of joint health, exercise and rehabilitation, we are better able to help patients achieve optimal levels of health and wellness.
We are a patient centered practice where your pain is our first priority.
