Dr. Philip O’Brien arrived from Providence, Rhode Island and settled in the Lehigh Valley since 2008, after receiving his doctoral degree from New York Chiropractic College with an emphasis in management of sports injuries and spinal pain. Prior to his relocation, Dr. O’Brien spent his residency at the Levittown Health Center in Wantagh, New York, and then was accepted into a specialized residency at the prestigious Rhode Island Spine Center with world renowned physician, Dr. Donald R. Murphy.
During his residency, when not examining patients, he spent most of his time at the Rhode Island Hospital with fellow residents from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Training included neurosurgery, orthopedics and chronic pain management. His education also includes specialized training with professionals in the field of athletics such as the team chiropractors for the Pittsburg Steelers and New York Jets, Syracuse University Football therapists, and the Lake Placid U.S. Olympic Training Center for winter sports.
Dr. O’Brien is also extensively trained in the examination, diagnosis and treatment of spinal disorders and spinal pain as well as sports injury management and decompression treatment (an efficient, non-surgical approach to treat disk disorders in a conservative approach prior to surgical intervention). Dr. O’Brien runs a multifunctional clinic with a highly trained support staff allowing the office to treat a multitude of musculoskeletal complaints from chronic pain to family practice including wellness programs, pediatrics, and sports injuries.
Dr. Philip O’Brien operates a sport, spine and progressive rehabilitation clinic. Our goal is to 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.
Incredible results in just a few sessions. Dr. Phil was able to assess my struggle and put a plan into action that has been extremely fruitful.
