Strain CounterStrain

Fascial Strain Counterstrain is a gentle effective method of reducing and eliminating dysfunction in the body. Dysfunction in the body–meaning when your body or parts of your body are not working correctly. This could be showing up in your body as chronic pain, loss of range of motion, stiffness, GERD, incontinence, pain in joints, swelling, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), headaches, neck pain, low back pain, and many other symptoms. For each and every problem area there is at least one if not more tender points which must be treated out with Fascial Strain Counterstrain to resolve dysfunction.

Simply put, the way Fascial Strain Counterstrain works is that it resets natural protective responses which were created in conjunction usually with a past injury. The problem arises when the past injury is healed up, but the protective response is still stuck in an “ON” position well after the injury healed up, the protective response never reset to a “Normal State”. This results in creation of tender points. The natural protective responses are out of control and stuck in a “ON” position. Natural protective responses stuck in the “ON” position can influence the nerves, muscles, arteries, veins, and organs of the body. A person can go through life accumulating unresolved protective responses stuck in the “ON” position. And as a result, these protective responses which were originally a helpful/good thing, continue in the “ON” position well after the original problem has been resolved and will spread dysfunction and flare up problems throughout the body.

These protective responses can occur in any tissue in the body, arteries, veins, nerves, ligaments, tendons, muscles, lymphatics, bone, fascia and the organs. And when these protective responses are locked down causing dysfunction Fascial Strain Counterstrain is the solution.

Fascial Strain Counterstrain was created by Brian Tuckey PT and his work was based on the original work of Lawrence Jones D.O., creator of classic Strain Counterstrain. Dr. Jones work originally focused on neuromuscular and muscle-skeletal disorders. For more information, Contact Wise Physical Therapy at (907) 562-2118.
