Counterstrain Technique Services in Toronto & North York

Our Osteopaths at Motion Care Clinic utilize this technique to remove painful, reflexive tissue contractions from the body via a gentle hands-on process of slackening or decompressing the involved structures. It is a system of diagnosis and treatment that uses tender points, which are produced by trauma, inflammation, postural strain, or disease, to identify structures to manipulate.

Our Osteopaths at Motion Care Clinic use passive body positioning of hypertonic (spasmed) muscles and dysfunctional joints toward positions of comfort or tissue ease that compress or shorten the offending muscle. Strain Counterstrain is an effective, but extremely gentle, technique because its action for treatment moves the patient’s body away from the painful, restricted directions of motion.
