DIY therapy & The Oakford Group

Founded by licensed physical therapists, The Oakford Group, LLC, has created the Invertabelt, a home exercise product designed to provide quality manual therapy treatment techniques that were once only available in the clinic.

We are focused on providing quality treatment strategies to common musculoskeletal dysfunctions through innovative treatment tools and strategies. Clear, concise exercise instructions and rationales are provided, helping to bridge the knowledge gap that exists between the clinician and patient.

Our process is derived directly from our physical therapy evaluation focusing on symptom and pattern recognition that help clients identify and eliminate painful stimulants and activities.  with over 40 years of clinical experience we streamlined the treatment process allowing clients to self treat and manage the majority of musculoskeletal pain.  

DIY Self-Treament Books

The DIY Treatment Book Series was developed to provide readers a thorough understanding of their pain associated with each body part.  The books are created as self treatment guides that provide step by step instructions, graphs ,and tools to help self assess and treat and manage pain independently.  Currently, there have been 3 book written focused on general pain, neck pain and low back pain.  Visits our book section today to purchase your book!

The Invertabelt

The Invertabelt helps provide low-back treatment that mirrors many manual therapy techniques performed in a professional clinic. Essentially, when performing back exercises that move the spine into a back bent or extended position, the Invertabelt isolates and extends the exact segment of the spine to reduce spasm and pain. As a result, you are able to perform exercises to a fuller range of motion which helps to optimize the effectiveness of the exercise
