trench-work lineman

Looking to improve your skills in the trenches? OPS Trench Work is the answer. 
 
Our coaches will not only address general principles off offensive and defensive line, but also zero in on the particulars that make the difference – including quick first step, hand placement and the ability to win individual battles with an opposing lineman. 
 
When it comes to making plays on both sides of the field, the attention often goes to the skill positions. But the key is up front. 
 
This is Trench Work.

OPS Chiropractic care and therapy

Dr. Goins and Dr. Russell’s goal is to get to the root cause of your pain or movement impairment.  Using a combination of muscle testing, functional and orthopedic testing, and gait analysis, they work to more clearly identify what is driving the dysfunction.  Then a personalized game plan is put together, including at-home exercises aimed at isolating and building up the proper areas.  Whether it’s getting out of pain or boosting performance, they can give you the tools to get you there.

Call (260) 479-2752 to schedule an appointment. 

Offices are located in the new OPS Fitness Club located off of Dupont Rd.
