Encinitas is a beautiful place. And a wonderful place to live and work. I know all of us who live here are grateful every day for the richness and diversity of things to do and places to go in the 92024. From the La Paloma theater to Queen Eileen’s, and from enjoying some golf at Encinitas Ranch to hanging out at Dog Park, Encinitas has endless opportunities for enjoyment. It also has some interesting architecture, a myriad of neighborhood design concepts, a world class library, the Self Realization Fellowship, the San Diego Botanical Gardens, and our magnificent beaches.
Runners, swimmers, and cycling enthusiasts flock to our perfect weather and endless variety of workout venues: beaches, pools, stairs, streets, trails, parks and gyms abound for both recreational and professional athletes alike. And eateries are everywhere, healthy and otherwise. But mostly healthy!
So you live here, work here or are visiting Encinitas, and unfortunately you hurt yourself. If you are in a great deal of pain, if it is really an emergency, please visit Scripps Encinitas Hospital. If you have a sprain, strain, backache, neck pain or other non-emergency problem, then you have choices. Start with your primary care physician. They are a great choice to evaluate you as they already know you and your history. If you do not have a primary care doctor there are many of them to choose from depending on your insurance situation. Try a resource like Encinitas Pain Resources to choose a primary care doctor or specialist. If you’ve seen a doctor and they have recommended some type of physical therapy to help you relieve your pain, your choices are endless. Because this is Encinitas, alternative therapies are huge and growing in popularity every day. We have chiropractic and acupuncture, massage and wheat grass shots. But maybe you’re looking for something else?
Encinitas also has the only Medical Doctor in Southern California certified by the Feldenkrais Guild of North America to practice the Feldenkrais Method, Lori L. Malkoff, MD, MPH. If you have been looking for an effective alternative pain treatment and pain relief center, the Feldenkrais Center of San Diego, located in Encinitas, may be a great choice. The Feldenkrais Method is a modern approach to acute and chronic pain relief without drugs, surgery, or injection. The results can be remarkable. Feldenkrais uses a series of lessons and gentle manipulations tailored to the individual. This process “reorganizes” the way the parts of your body work together to enable free and easy movement without pain.
Once you’re back on your feet, you can continue to explore the endless opportunities for fun that is Encinitas, California: one of the most beautiful places in the world!
