Our clinic has therapists that are specifically trained in this technique to counteract acute pain. Strain Counterstrain is a passive positional procedure that places the body in a position of greatest comfort, thereby relieving pain and dysfunction. Our therapists are trained to identify small zones of tense, tender and swollen muscle and fascial tissue and apply the appropriate technique in order to relieve your pain. When the muscle is shortened to its maximum capability, there is a neurological release that immediately reduces pain and relaxes the muscle tissue. There are no restrictions to this treatment, regardless of age or your diagnosis.
