Simply, counterstrain is the form of manual manipulative therapy that uses an indirect means of passively positioning a painful or restricted joint or muscle to relieve pain and mechanical dysfunction.
As its name implies, it counters the results of the initial strain on the body. Strain/Counterstrain is one of the most gentle and powerful manual techniques currently employed in the field of rehabilitation.
The technique is reliable and effective and is applicable to a large range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions. It is used for the effective alleviation of chronic muscular spasm and related pain.
Spasm reduction and normalisation of muscle-tone is achieved by the placement of the client's extremity or trunk into positions of greatest comfort. Each position is specific to the treated muscle. The position is maintained for a short period of time to inhibit the hyperactive nervous system activity producing the painful muscle-spasm.
