Course Description

From Allied Health Education, “So many people suffer with painful muscle trigger points as the result of stress, tension, and injury. Functional impairments and participation restrictions result from the pain and motion limitations associated with trigger points (TPs). In this program, learn to manage painful TPs and muscle spasm, and the neurophysiological reflexes that modulate muscle tension. The use of gentle positioning to relax and release abnormal muscle tension is described. Specific positions are demonstrated, based on the strain-counterstrain principles first described by Dr. Lawrence Jones, DO, to reduce painful TPs and improve mobility and function. Research review indicates the efficacy of using gentle positioning to improve flexibility, strength, reduce pain and improve performance. Imagine being able to reduce painful TPs in just 90 seconds!”
