My first ever physical therapy to treat soreness in hips and pelvic area. Closest thing to magic I’ve ever experienced. Amy used techniques to identify the sources of pain problem areas and gently worked them out. Much more comfortable than I had expected. Problems haven’t returned since last visit a few months ago, but I sure know where to go if they do.
As practicing physical therapist since 1985, Marty O’Shea was first exposed to Counterstrain when he attended a seminar which was given by Lawrence Jones D.O. (the originator of the Counterstrain technique.)
He quickly realized that Counterstrain was a powerful tool that enabled him to address some of the more recalcitrant problems that his more complex patients presented with which he had previously been unable to effectively treat. After that initial course, he went on to be certified in the Counterstrain in 2003 through the Jones Institute.
The next big revelation with his Counterstrain experience was when he attended his first seminar with Brian Tuckey in 2008 where he was introduced to the concept in which Brian applied the Counterstrain concept to the fascial system. This has enabled him to use Counterstrain to treat his patients with conditions that that he never imagined would be treatable within the world of physical therapy. He has since attended all the new fascial seminars as Brian has released them and has consistently trained through the Counterstrain academy to help perfect his mastery of fascial Counterstrain. He works closely with all the physical therapists at ARC Physical Therapy to provide the best treatment possible to help relieve pain and meet his patients’ goals.
