Abstract

The sacral foramen tender points are newly identified, specific indicators of somatic dysfunction. The use of counterstrain to release these tender points and relieve the associated somatic dysfunction is a safe, specific, and nontraumatic means of treating any patient even in the presence of illness or acute trauma. These new tender points and their releases provide a means of treating sacral torsions with counterstrain.
