JCS2 covers a system based approach to dysfunction in the lumbar spine and lower extremities through treatment techniques developed by Dr. Jones that positively affect the sympathetic nervous system, the somatic nervous system, peripheral vascular flow, and the musculoskeletal systems. This course offers a thorough introduction to various dysfunctions that contribute to somatic pain originating from L1 and below, making it the perfect starting point for beginners and a comprehensive lower quarter review for advanced Counterstrainers.
Lecture and extensive lab time are spent on the lumbar spine, sacrum, pelvis, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Emphasis is placed on developing palpatory and hands-on treatment skills to enhance the student’s effectiveness with the techniques. Upon completion of the course participants will understand the neurophysiologic basis for Counterstrain, be able to perform the general Counterstrain procedure, and gain a comfort level with the more than 85 Strain Counterstrain techniques that are taught. Each participant will receive a course syllabus and technique charts.
