Lawrence H. Jones, D. He discovered that placing the body into positions of comfort and returning from them slowly could permanently reduce musculoskeletal pain. Relief of rheumatic pain by placing the joint in its position of greatest comfort. Relief of false messages of continuing strain arising in dysfunctioning proprioceptor reflexes, by applying a gentle stretch in the direction opposite that of the false messages of strain. This is accomplished by shortening the muscle containing the inappropriate tension or strain message so much that it stops reporting strain. The body in normal positions can suffer this pain for years yet have it stopped in ninety seconds of the opposite strain. Fascia is the connective tissue network that holds our cells together. Because of its interconnection with our nerves, organs, muscles, vascular system etc. Hence, an effective assessment and treatment of the fascia can help with a wide variety of conditions pertaining to different body systems. Tuckey established a system-specific approach that allows the therapist to target the very cause of your dysfunction via a unique cranial scan.

This "new edition" of strain-counterstrain includes better discussions on the scientific rationale of soft tissue dysfunction and an appendix of strain-counterstrain terms and how they correspond to positional release therapy terminology. The technique illustrations which comprise the majority of both books are improved in both detail and layout in PRT. There is a short chapter and an appendix devoted to a record-keeping system that is rather bulky and will probably be ignored by the majority of practitioners who purchase the text.

PRT or strain-counterstrain is a technique of reducing tender points in the soft tissues by passively placing the patient in a position where light digital pressure on the tender point is no longer painful, and then holding that position for approximately 90 seconds. The authors have similar stories which sparked their interest in strain-counterstrain.

Jones Strain Counterstrain

Kerry D'Ambrogio suffered from chronic groin, hip flexor, and knee pain caused by athletic injuries and attended a seminar by Lawrence Jones. After one treatment by Dr.

Jones, his improvement was so substantial that he eventually began working with Jones, teaching strain-counterstrain in seminars. George Roth suffered from intermittent upper back pain caused by a childhood automobile accident and was in the midst of a three-month flare-up, which was also unresponsive to multiple types of treatment.

What is positional release therapy?

His condition resolved after one treatment with the strain-counterstrain by a student of Dr. The human body must have a method of sensing and rapidly responding to strain applied to our fragile internal structures.

Changes in joint resting position due to increased skeletal or smooth muscle tone. Changes in proprioception due to changes in joint resting position Weakness due to pain inhibition, neural compression or skeletal muscle reciprocal inhibition.

Loss of function due to any of the above physiological effects. I had just returned from a visceral manipulation course and began to apply the visceral stretching techniques I had just learned to my chronic pain population. I maintained the position for 90 seconds and after re-assessment noted a complete correction of the visceral restriction.

From that point on I began a laborious, multiple year process of identifying visceral tender points and the specific organ manipulation that would correct each restriction. By that time, through deduction, I had come to the conclusion that I was impacting and manipulating visceral ligaments.

This, however, did nothing to explain the effect of indirect techniques on these non-contractile structures, which would be necessary if I were to attempt to teach this material to anyone outside of my immediate friends and colleagues.

Nowhere in the literature could I find any references with regards to contractile fibers in fascia or ligaments.

Jones Strain-Counterstrain

From there it was only a matter of time before I was able to develop a whole new theory regarding Counterstrain. The theory was simple, If Counterstrain worked in the visceral fascia and all fascia in the body is histologically similar, then vascular, neural and ligamentous tender points should also exist. Vascular: Fascial SCS will also have an immediate impact on local inflammatory metabolites like substance P.
