Facilitated positional release.

PMID:  2407698     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The facilitated positional release techniques described here introduce motion into the direction of freedom of movement. Achievement of neutral position is made easier by modifying sagittal posture, and a facilitating force is then applied. The treatment is directed at normalizing tissue texture changes but can be modified to influence the deep muscles involved in joint mobility. This modality is easily applied, nontraumatic, and efficient.
