Course
Strain Counterstrain I - For the Spine
WHAT THE COURSE OFFERS
Strain Counterstrain I (SCSI) for the spine treats over 95 dysfunctions of the vertebral column from the cervical to the pelvis. It is the most important course in Counterstrain, and is the one that will be used the most for musculoskeletal dysfunction of the whole body. In fact, if on the one hand it is the first module that is dealt with in the Jones training and then you’ll learn a completely new working method. On the other hand, clinical reasoning is also learned, aimed at studying any patient in all musculoskeletal areas. Moreover, at the same time, besides the rachialgias of various kinds, it also allows to treat indirectly the problems of the appendicular skeleton; since being a complete neurological technique, and since the various nerve plexuses directed at the 4 extremities, originating from the vertebral column, it is very common that the priority dysfunction originates from the column its’ self, and not only locally from the limbs. The same applies to the headaches of myo-tension origin, starting from the cervical nerves. So it is very common to get immediate benefits for: cervicobrachial pain syndromes, lumob-cruralgia and sciatica symptoms with this first and fundamental course. We also remember that many visceral disturbances will disappear or improve considerably thanks to the restoration of the normal function of the visceral-somatic arch that the technique is going to restore.
Lecture and extensive lab time are spent on:
Neurophysiology & basis for somatic dysfunction
Rational for SCS
General rules for SCS
Cervical evaluation and treatment lab
Thoracic and Ribs evaluation and treatment lab  
Lumbar evaluation and treatment lab
Pelvis and sacrum evaluation and treatment lab
Design a home program using SCS philosophy

Understand how the technique is performed, download the file:
  • Emphasis is placed on developing palpatory skills to enhance the students' effectiveness with the techniques.
  • Will be explained how to evaluate all the major postural dysfunction of the rachis and treat the specific area so to release pain and achieve the lost mobility.
  • Will be explained the connection among the various spine area and the relation with the extremities. As well as ortho and parasympathetic relation among common pain syndromes. Will be taught how to evaluate and treat several ribs dysfunctions.
