Physical Therapy Pain Management and Fascial Counterstrain

Physical Therapy

  • Does pain restrict your movements?
  • Have you suffered an injury that is keeping you from doing what you love?
  • Do you have chronic pain that nothing seems to help?

Physical therapy pain management can help you recover more quickly.

We treat the source of the pain, bringing more profound and long-lasting relief and recovery.

You have a diagnosis, but it is not the source of your pain. At Montgomery Somatics, we offer physical therapy services that incorporate advanced thinking and evidence-based solutions and interventions. The body’s connective tissue or fascia is under the nervous system’s control. This means that minor, severe, or multiple injuries, as well as inefficient movement patterns, can seriously affect our overall health and functioning.

If you are tired of being in pain, please contact us today so we can discuss your physical therapy pain management needs and come up with a treatment plan to get you moving again.

Fascial Counterstrain

Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a therapeutic method designed to address the source of pain-trapped inflammation—the underlying cause of persistent pain, discomfort, and inefficient movement patterns.

Every tissue (nerve, muscle, ligament, tendon, and fascia), vessel (artery, vein, and lymphatic), and organ in the human body has the potential to produce an active spasm and pain as a natural and protective response to injury or the threat of injury.

Chronic and unresolved areas of trapped inflammation result in persistent and widespread tender points reflecting the held spasm in the injured tissue. Over time, this reflexive spasm eventually alters our movement patterns creating inefficient movement, pain, and dysfunction.

FCS aims to produce therapeutic release to address persistent pain and discomfort through hands-on techniques, including body positioning and gentle compression of strained structures within the body.

As the name implies, Fascial Counterstrain applies pressure against strained structures to quickly relax or inhibit the reflex, thereby allowing the trapped inflammatory chemical to move, restoring the natural lymphatic flow within the affected tissues.
