According to Dr. Doperak, “Here at Arizona Orthotics we’ve always been proud of our ability to customize our care specific to the needs of the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare and the CSPS credential proves my desire to understand the needs of special populations in order to provide them with the most effective solutions possible. I’m extremely honored to be a part of this elite group of certified professionals.”

As a leader in strength and conditioning development for over three decades, the NSCA aims to reward motivated professionals for extending their expertise, learning new specializations to provide comprehensive healthcare to all individuals- no matter their circumstances or challenges.
