Dr. Michael Otoupalik, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Aliso Viejo

Dr. Michael Otoupalik, D.C. first became inspired with chiropractic care after he endured a rotator cuff injury in college. At the time, Dr. Otoupalik was a competitive swimmer and was facing having to undergo exploratory surgery. Instead, Dr. Otoupalik opted for treatment from a local sports chiropractor, and within weeks most of his pain was gone with routine maintenance care and rehabilitation.

After his personal experiences with chiropractic he saw what a valuable treatment tool chiropractic care is and it’s holistic and natural benefits. This inspired Dr. Otoupalik to attend chiropractic college at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in Whittier, CA, where he obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After graduation, Dr. Otoupalik worked in private practice for 27 years before joining The Joint Chiropractic in Encinitas, CA in March 2017.

Dr. Otoupalik believes the best thing about being a chiropractor is that it provides spinal and extremity manipulation, and believes no other profession is as proficient at delivering this type of personalized care. Over the course of his chiropractic career, Dr. Otoupalik has had the opportunity to treat a range of patients with a variety of cases including sciatica pain, neck pain, arthritis pain, lower back pain, pregnant women and sports injuries.

Dr. Otoupalik finds his passion in educating his Encinitas community on the many benefits of this holistic, natural and drug-free form of healthcare, and hopes to continue doing so through The Joint Chiropractic.

When he is not working, Dr. Otoupalik enjoys exploring the picturesque hills of Aliso Viejo and Laguna Niguel with his wife, Ana.
