Spinal Adjustment Service
The Strain/Counterstrain Technique is used to manually make adjustments to the body in order to alleviate muscle spasms and partial joint dislocations.
This method is not used to treat damaged or injured tissues. It is rather used to relieve muscle spasms due to malfunctioning neuromuscular reflexes.
In many cases of injury such as a tear, the muscle will go into spasm initially. The tear within the muscle also disrupts the nerve that supplies the muscle which triggers the spasm.
