Lawrence Jones, DO’s accidental discovery
Dr. Lawrence Jones, an osteopath from the small town of Ontario, Oregon. He received his osteopathic degree in 1936, discovered by accident, how to release osteopathic lesions (aka subluxations) in 1955 and taught until his death in the 1996. Counterstrain was the culmination of 20 years of independent clinical tinkering in Jones’s rural clinical practice. He encouraged his students to further develop their own techniques.4
