Positional release technique (PRT), also called strain and counter-strain, is a technique known for being a gentle, pain-free approach to treating an area of pain. Positional release technique utilizes passive body positioning of muscle spasms and dysfunctional joints toward positions of comfort that compress or shorten the offending structure. The movement toward shortening is proposed to relax aberrant reflexes that produce the muscle spasm. Positional release techniques treat a variety of sports injuries and other pain conditions, such as chronic or acute muscle spasms.
