Strain-Counterstrain & Positional Release Techniques for Painful Muscle Tension and Trigger Points

CE Hours 2

About this live event

This is a live interactive webinar on Strain-Counterstrain and Positional Release Therapy (PRT), techniques that have been shown to be highly effective for reducing painful trigger points (TPs) and chronic musculoskeletal (MSK) pain. Did you know that between 20-33% of people around the world suffer from MSK pain, with low back, neck, knee, and shoulder pain being the most prevalent conditions? Unfortunately, the rising costs of medical treatment have led to overuse of imaging studies, dangerous opioid drugs, and surgery, resulting in time lost from work and a diminished quality of life. You will discover how gentle positioning techniques, based on the Strain-Counterstrain principles developed by Dr. Lawrence Jones, DO, can help you identify and address chronic MSK pain associated with TPs. By exploring the neurophysiological reflexes that modulate muscle tension and using those reflexes to release tension and pain with little effort, you can reduce painful TPs and improve mobility and function. Best of all, the techniques you'll learn can often alleviate pain in less than two minutes. You will learn specific positional releases and reflexes that modulate muscle tension, allowing you to rapidly relieve painful TPs and tension. By the end of this webinar, you will be able to integrate PRT into your plan of care, delighting your clients with your newfound expertise while saving your hands in the process. So, let's get started and explore the world of PRT together!

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the etiology and assessment of myofascial trigger points.
  • Identify trigger points (TPs) and areas of abnormal musculoskeletal tension to document their effect on mobility and function.
  • Evaluate the neurophysiological basis and evidence-based research for positional release technique (PRT)/ Strain-counterstrain (SCS).
  • Apply specific positioning interventions to rapidly reduce the painful sensitivity of TPs, release abnormal neuromuscular tension and improve functional mobility.

Learning Levels

  • Beginner to Intermediate
