Objectives
  • Discuss the theoretical basis and evidence-based research for positional release/counterstrain (PRT) and muscle energy therapy (MET/PNF)
  • Describe basic neuromuscular reflexes, the function of the muscle spindle, Golgi tendon organs and proprioceptors and their effect on muscle tone and function
  • Assess the musculoskeletal system using palpation to identify indicator trigger points (TPs)
  • Identify positions that reduce the pain and sensitivity of TPs to allow spontaneous release of abnormal neuromuscular tone
  • Apply principles of MET/PNF to position a joint to effectively stretch a muscular restriction or strengthen an inhibited muscle (to correct a somatic dysfunction)
  • Implement a treatment program using positional release and muscle energy therapy to improve range of motion, flexibility, strength, and to reduce spasm and pain for a variety of clinical conditions
