Massaging an injured knee — Pain Management in Fort lauderdale, FL

Fort Lauderdale Pain Management for Over 26 Years

With over 26 years in private practice, Dr. Bobker has led the effort to permanently help thousands of patients achieve a pain-free lifestyle. DCOC is a leader in the use of natural and cutting edge treatments and technology.

Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, the mission of DCOC is to provide patients with the tools necessary to achieve a pain-free lifestyle. AT the DCOC we are dedicated to a comprehensive approach to pain management.

We integrate hands-on techniques such as chiropractic manipulation, therapeutic massage, therapeutic exercise, custom foot orthotics and chiropractic physiotherapies to achieve our mission.



The cause of most musculoskeletal pain syndromes can be traced to the effect of gravity, effort and excessive strain on the human body.
At the DCOC, we recognize the importance of the human frame (skeleton), as it relates to health and how we feel. The fact is, the body is always working for us, and how we carry ourselves has much to do with how we feel. Over time, the cumulative stresses of fighting gravity and muscle overexertion result in asymmetry of the body. These misalignments irritate, fester, and pinch nerves culminating in pain and joint dysfunction (subluxation).

Meet The Massage Therapist

Massage Therapist—Chiropractic Care in Fort Lauderdale, FL
At the DCOC we recognize that optimal health and integrity of the soft tissue supporting structures (muscles, tendons, fascia and ligaments) play an important role in how we feel and perform. It is for this reason that we are fortunate to have the expertly skilled massage therapist Joseph A. Gajnos.
While Joe is highly trained to integrate into his practice an array of multidisciplinary therapeutic massage techniques (i.e., Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue, Myoskeletal Alignment, Sports Massage) his main focus is the safe and effective Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). Virtually everyone of all ages and lifestyles can benefit from the improved wellness and performance gained by AIS's ability to gently release restricted muscles and the surrounding connective tissue called fascia.
