He specializes in the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and athletic injuries, as well as spine related disorders. Dr. Gapinski has a passion for diagnostic ultrasound, he reviews real time imaging in the office with patients and helps find the root cause of your pain to implement the correct treatment plan.
