Acupuncture

Accupunture PT Acupuncture is a Chinese healing art that has been used for over 5,000 years. It works on the energy system “Qi” (pronounced Chee) through the insertion of hair thin sterilized stainless steel disposable needles. Acupuncture works with the body’s own energy currents which are measurable as electomagnetic forces. This magnetic force, or “river of energy”, follows predictable patterns in the body. Andrea Murphy owns and operates an acupuncture treatment center within Oceanside Physical Therapy. For more information: www.acupuncturebyandrea.com.

Osteopathic Manual Therapy Techniques

Osteopathic Manual Therapy Techniques Osteopathy originated as a 19th century alternative medical approach emphasizing the physical manipulation of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Osteopathic practitioners devote their efforts throughout the musculoskeletal system, including soft tissues and joints outside the spine. There are several specific osteopathic techniques in wide use. Some of these techniques used at Oceanside Physical Therapy include:

Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
MET can be employed to reposition a dysfunctional joint and treat the affected musculature. Indications include, but are not limited to: muscular shortening, low back pain, pelvic imbalance, edema, limited range of motion, somatic dysfunction, respiratory dysfunction, cervicogenic headaches, and many others.

Strain and Counterstrain
Within manual therapy, Strain-Counterstrain is a type of “passive positional release” created in the early 1960s by Lawrence Jones, D.O. It is a hands-on treatment that alleviates muscle and connective tissue tightness by the use of very specific treatment positions held for 90 seconds. During the procedure, the involved tissue is “slackened” causing a relaxation of the “spasm” which, in turn, allows local areas of inflammation, trapped within the painful tissue to dissipate. This gentle and painless technique is a very effective treatment for a wide variety of orthopedic conditions such as headaches, fibromyalgia, sciatica, tendinitis, chronic neck pain, and post-surgical conditions.

Cranio-sacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.

Custom Bike Fitting

Custom Bike Fitting

Easily the most important aspect of selecting a new bike is achieving the right fit. Variances in body sizes and proportions, in levels of fitness and flexibility, in technique and style, all affect a cyclist’s best position on the bike and can prevent injuries. Your body has its own unique proportions and it fits your bike uniquely. The length of your torso, the positioning of your back, neck and knees, the way you bend when you ride, all need to be considered to maximize performance. Let Oceanside Physical Therapy help you ride more comfortably and efficiently by performing a customized bike fitting.

  • Accurate inseam measurement
  • Determine proper frame size
  • Proper saddle height
  • Ideal leg and knee extension positioning
  • Establishing a comfortable handlebar reach
