TRAVEL TRIGGER POINT & STRAINCOUNTERSTRAIN – AN OSTEOPATHIC APPROACH LECTURE VIDEO

Class Video $325.00

Dr. Travell defined a Trigger Point as “a hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band. The spot is tender when pressed and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, motor dysfunction, and autonomic phenomena.

Counterstain is a system of diagnosis and treatment that considers the dysfunction to be a continuing, inappropriate strain reflex, which is inhibited by applying a position of mild strain in the direction exactly opposite to that of the reflex; this is accomplished by specific directed positioning about the point of tenderness to achieve the desired therapeutic response.

This class will tie together the two different systems into a complimentary system of assessment and treatment through the Osteopathic concepts and philosophy.
