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 two high school football programs.
Dr. Olivacz specializes in family chiropractic care as well as the treatment of athletes. He also holds degrees in Human Biology from Logan College of Chiropractic and Adult Health and Wellness from Bloomsburg University.
