Strain Counterstrain (SCS)
SCS is one of the gentlest hands-on techniques used to effectively treat muscle and joint pain. SCS relieves pain by moving the body away from the painful or restricted directions of motion and towards positions of comfort and ease. This allows the joints influenced by the releaxed muscle to function at their best, increasing range of motion and easing muscle pain.
SCS can be used for very actute traumas like sports injuries, ankle sprains, motor vehicle accidents and post-surgeries. It can also be used to treat more chronic conditions such as fibromyalga, TMJ pain, headaches, and arthritis. If you are experiencing sharp or intense pain, SCS can be especially beneficial for you.
