Positional Release Therapy: An Evidence Based Update

In this online introductory course, participants will be introduced to the evidence and theory supporting the use of positional release therapy (PRT) for a wide-variety of medical conditions. Positional Release Therapy (PRT) also known by its parent term, Strain Counterstrain, is a form manual therapy that resolves pain and somatic dysfunction. Through positioning the body and tissues in positions of comfort, the neurological system can be manipulated to interrupt the pain spasm cycle and over time, to reset the resting length of tissue in a "normal" range, which promotes a reduction in pain, increase in strength, range of motion, performance and function. Essentially, PRT is the opposite of stretching. Much like unkinking a knot from a chain necklace, PRT works in the same fashion; tissues are pushed together, twisted, compressed and manipulated to take tension off vessels and nerves. The therapy is pain-free and is suited for all ages and most painful conditions and only requires the hands. The primary goal of PRT is to promote a positive healing environment by correcting musculoskeletal and neurological imbalances to facilitate tissue regeneration, growth, and repair in order for the body to self-correct itself.
