Description

Positional Release Technique (PRT) helps to reduce painful trigger points, correct abnormal neuromuscular tension patterns, and improve mobility. With PRT, clinicians use specific joint positioning to inhibit excessive tone and relieve trigger points. Evidence shows that PRT reduces pain, improves range of motion, and may increase strength and function.

PRT may be readily applied in a variety of clinical situations in which there is limited mobility and pain due to abnormal muscle tension. These techniques are gentle enough to be applied across the lifespan for clients with orthopedic or neuromuscular dysfunction. You will learn how to take advantage of proprioceptive reflexes to optimize functional results in clinical practice.
