Robert Bolinger is a
Physical Therapist with over thirty years of experience. He is a graduate of
the University of Southern California Physical Therapy School. For the last
twelve years Mr. Bolinger has focused on a technique called Strain and
Counterstrain.The Jones Institute certified him in this technique in 2003.
Strain and Counterstrain
is an Osteopathic system developed by Dr. Lawrence Jones D.O., F.A.A.O. for
the treatment of musculoskeletal and myofascial pain. The technique is one
of the most gentle of any of the manual therapies and has a broad
application for many physical dysfunctions.
Counterstrain can be used
for acute injuries such as motor vehicle accidents or sports injuries. It is
also very effective for chronic pain problems such as headaches, back and
neck pain. People treated with this technique are always surprised just how
gentle and effective it is.
A treatment session of
Strain and Counterstrain involves a palpation examination to asses the areas
of dysfunction. A physical therapy examination for motion, strength and
posture is included. The development of an exercise or stretching program is
included as needed to remain free of pain. A session lasts about one hour
and three to six sessions are often enough for most problems.
