Strain-Counterstrain Techniques and treatment standards

Strain and Counterstrain a manual therapy technique, meaning the clinician use only their hands, to treat muscle and joint pain and dysfunction.

Created by Lawrence Jones

Taking into account the work of Irvin Korr, Ph.D. “Proprioceptors and Somatic Dysfunction. Korr said: “To a physiologist, it appears to be substantially more sensible that the restriction and imperviousness to movement of a joint that portrays an osteopathic sore don’t emerge inside the joint, however, are forced by one or a greater amount of the muscles that navigate and move the joint.”

Definition of Strain Counterstrain

A detached positional strategy that places the body in a position of most noteworthy solace, along these lines mitigating torment by decrease and capture of unseemly proprioceptor movement that keeps up physical brokenness.

This strategy was initially called unconstrained discharge by situating and has likewise been called positional discharge treatment (as often as possible by physical advisors).

 

Standards of Treatment

Find the critical delicate point. Place the patient in a position of ideal comfort.(mild overstretching connected in a course inverse to the false and proceeding with a message of strain) The objective for torment decrease ought to be no less than 70%. Keep up the position of solace for 90 seconds (120 seconds for ribs). Gradually give back the patient to the beginning position. Recheck the delicate point.

Delicate POINTS

More than 200 particular delicate focuses.Appearances of physical brokenness.

What is a delicate point?

Little zone of strained, delicate edematous muscle and fascial tissue.1 cm in measurement.Tactile sign of neuromuscular or musculoskeletal brokenness.

Strategy

Find a delicate point

Discover position of solace or portable point, no less than 70% reduction in delicacy. Screen delicate point as hold position of solace 90 seconds.

 

Method

Come back to unbiased gradually.Recheck delicate point-no less than 70% lessening indelicacy.

 

GENERAL RULES

Hold treatment position for 90 seconds. Come back to unbiased gradually. Front delicate focuses are generally treated in flexi0n. Back delicate focuses are generally treated in an expansion. Delicate focuses on or close midline are treated with more flexion and expansion.

 

GENERAL RULES

Delicate focuses horizontal to midline are generally treated with more revolution and side twisting. With numerous focuses, treat the most extreme first. It delicate focuses are in succession, treat the one in the center first. Delicate focuses in the furthest points are more often than not on the inverse side of torment.

 

GENERAL RULES

Caution understanding they might be sore after the treatment. Just contraindication is (+) vertebral corridor test for some cervical medicines.
