I have been excited about Counterstrain since I first met Lawrence Jones, D.O. at a course in Portland in 1991.
He fixed a problem for me that I had suffered with for 18 months prior to meeting him, and I had seen all the "best" Physical Therapists, Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, Naprapaths, and Orthopedic physicians in Chicago, with no relief.
I have been hooked ever since. Brian Tuckey, PT, OCS, JSCCI has taken Counterstrain to a whole new level with the development of Fascial Counterstrain.
Fascial Counterstrain is, by far, the most significant evaluation and treatment discovery for painful conditions that the physical therapy profession has ever known. In the future, it will revolutionize not only the practice of physical therapy, but the entire health care industry as well. Counterstrain is already the most effective non-invasive approach for relieving chronic intractable pain, period. When Counterstrain is more widely used, it will play a key role in preventing many of the chronic conditions that currently plague aging individuals, such as stooped posture and premature joint degeneration. Perhaps the greatest benefit, however, is the potential that Counterstrain has for improving brain health through improved arterial flow and lymphatic/venous drainage. The applications for Counterstrain seem endless. The future is here, and it is both bright and exciting!
