Postisometric Relaxation (PIR) is a positional technique, using muscular facilitation and inhibition. As it obviously acts on muscles with increased tension, it is advantageous for muscle relaxation, if there is muscle spasm and particularly if there are Trigger points. The good results can be significantly enhanced by combining PIR with methods that affect the postural musculature as whole, such as eye movements, inhalation and exhalation. The effect of treatment can be ascertained not only in the muscle treated, but also in the pain points, situated most frequently where the tendon is attached to the bone. At times, those pain points are more likely to be result of referred pain, in which case RIP is as effective as local anesthesia or needling. This demonstrates very clearly the close interrelation between tension and pain, and relaxation and anesthesia.
