Counterstrain

Counterstrain is the form of manual manipulative therapy that uses an indirect means of passively positioning a painful or restricted joint or muscle to relieve pain and mechanical dysfunction.

As its name implies, it counters the results of the initial strain on the body. It is a very gentle technique that requires that the client does nothing but relax while the therapist slowly moves some part of that patient's body, depending on where his/her pain is.
