Dr. Olivacz is trained in using the Graston Technique® which allows him to better detect and treat these areas because it uses a stainless steel instrument that glides along a patient's muscle, tendons or ligaments and acts like a "scar tissue" stethoscope. When knots or bands of scar tissue are encountered, both the doctor and the patient sense a restriction or a granular feeling. The instrument can then be used to "break up" this restriction or adhesion. Stretching exercises are then used to promote re-alignment of the fibers so that they behave more like normal, healthy tissue.

Dr. Olivacz is also a team chiropractor for a local high school football program.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "'ve been in chronic pain with my neck and shoulder for over a year. I had several months of physical therapy, which gave me some improvement. But after one session with Dr. Campanella I started seeing improvement and even was able to sleep. After 4 sessions he said I was done for now; I can always come back for a tune-up; which I've done for my sciatica over the last few years."

  • "Fantastic experience every time. No wait time once you are checked in- YES- at a doctor's office! All office staff personable and responsive. The office itself is clean and comfortable. Cannot rave highly enough about Dr. Joe and the various treatments I have received through the years to relieve the muscle pain resulting from spinal fusion surgery. He is also an advocate of massage therapy in conjunction with adjustments which has always been the hallmark of a great chiropractic doctor for me. Adjustments are not always needed, and all treatments/therapies release my pain and symptoms."
