POSITIONAL RELEASE THERAPY

These are techniques that use precise body positioning and use of a monitor point to release pain and tension in hyper-sensitive muscle tissues; easily and quickly. Similar to Orthobionomy,
Strain/ Counter Strain, and Neuromuscular Re-education. It is directed to the dysfunction and uses the body's self-corrective reflexes. It is a non-invasive, gentle and safe method for easing muscular contraction, tension and spasms and restoring function to fascia, muscles, bones, and joints.

Some techniques used:

  • Passively place patient in a position where using light to medium finger pressure on the tender area causes the patient to no longer experience pain, hold that position for about 90 seconds and sometimes more to obtain normalization of muscle and fascial tensions. After this time, patient is slowly returned to a neutral position, and re-examined using range of motion techniques, and general palpation to test for any improvement.
  • Trap muscle with fingertips, bend into painful muscle to create slack and eliminate pain. After muscle releases, stretch area thoroughly, but gently.
