Strain and Counterstrain

Strain and Counterstrain:

Strain and Counterstrain is a positional release technique used to reduce muscle spasm and pain.  The positions allow muscle tissue to unwind and relax eliminating muscle spasm, in both skeletal muscle and smooth muscle, and allowing for increased range of motion and decreased pain.  It also creates a new muscle memory for the cells in the muscle tissue to retain its new length and lasting pain relief.
