OPP is a clinic on a mission.
The first part of that mission is to serve cyclists, runners, and active individuals in San Antonio. We do this by providing the highest quality treatments, delivered in one-on-one sessions. As a cyclist or runner, you have unique demands on your body. You put in crazy amounts of hours training each week, work a full-time job, and juggle family responsibilities. When you are injured and not performing at your peak, your life feels out of sync. We know this because we are cyclists too :). Our mission is to allow all cyclists and runners in the San Antonio area to be able to compete pain free! Read more about our treatment techniques here.
The second part of our mission is to provide college students with real world learning opportunities. College students often face barriers when trying to gain experience. Our goal is to eliminate these barriers by providing students with opportunities to apply their skills and knowledge in a real business. Almost all parts of our business have been impacted by college students. From our web designer, to our media editor, and our clinical interns, we strive to create positions for students of all backgrounds.
