Elective Rotation: Counterstrain Course (Jones Institute)
Contact: Katya Adachi
I attended Strain-Counterstrain conferences through the Jones Institute. These are 3 day weekend courses (20 hours) during which we are taught the theory and techniques of Strain-Counterstain and given opportunity to practice them with other participants. Most of the attendees are physical therapist who have stronger palpatory skills than I did as an MD. As an OMT wannabe, these courses were a nice way to learn palpatory skills, strength my exam and anatomy skills, and start to become familiar with a manual therapy that I hope to use with patients in the future.
