I have been an outpatient orthopaedic manual therapist since 2009. I have practiced in Washington, DC, Maui (Kihei), HI, Austin, TX and now the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I first discovered Fascial Counterstrain in 2016 upon moving to Illinois and meeting the people at ARC Physical Therapy. Once I saw and felt the power of this technique I knew it was what I had been missing. So many times I had seen someone who wasn’t improving or had plateaud no matter what other technique I tried. This was the missing piece.
Since then I have made Fascial Counterstrain my main practice and have devoted myself to learning as much as I can about it. This is a skill that requires a lot of practice and constant continuing education. Some of the conditions I have found this technique to be really instrumental in helping are:
Cervicalgia (neck pain)
Thoracic spine pain
Scoliosis in adolescents/children
Lumbago (low back pain)
Sacroiliac (SI) dysfunction
And many other conditions.
If you have tried to address a problem with other types of therapy and are not satisfied with the results maybe it’s time to try treating your fascia.
