Jones Strain and Counterstrain is a manual therapy technique, meaning the clinician only uses their hands to treat muscle and joint dysfunction, which often presents with pain. It uses passive body positioning of spasmed muscles and dysfunctional joints toward positions of comfort, easing the tissues that are compressing or shortening the structure causing discomfort. The purpose of shortening is to relax aberrant reflexes that produce the muscle spasm forcing immediate reduction in tightness back to normal levels. This allows the joint influenced by the involved muscle, ligament or tendon, to function optimally, increasing its range of motion and easing pain. Strain and Counterstrain is an effective and extremely gentle technique that moves the patient’s body away from the painful, restricted motion, into a more comfortable, less painful movement.
We also offer onsite Massage Therapy through our partners at Puget Sound Massage.
South Hill Physical Therapy Accepts Tri-Care! We enjoy working with active duty and non-active duty military personnel and their families.
