– Jones Strain/Counterstrain –

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.

– Vertigo –

Vertigo is a feeling that you or your surroundings are moving when there is no actual movement. You may feel as though you are spinning, whirling, falling, or tilting. The most effective treatment is a procedure called, “Epley Maneuver,” which can move the small calcium crystals that are floating inside your inner ear. A Physical Therapist can reposition the particles by adjusting positions in the neck and reduce and or alleviate symptoms of vertigo.
