About MSR

Motion Specific Release (MSR)

Motion Specific Release is a powerful approach that re-establishes the neuromuscular stability of the body though the use of hands-on procedures that increate a patients optimal function and performance.

MSR eliminates pain, restores function, and places control back into the hands of your patients. The MSR approach provides you with cutting-edge procedures that you can immediately integrate into your clinical practice.

The MSR Approach is all about achieving optimum results by helping you tap into your clinical creativity. Clinical Creativity is a concept that has taken many practitioners to a whole new level of clinical excellence and amazing results.


M is Motion. A combination of patient and practitioner motion. Motion is used to identify both the areas of restriction and the path to releasing those restriction. This concept has been used in Tai Chi (pushing hands) for hundreds of years and we use it to train practitioners to become more aware of their patients’ physical restrictions.


S is Specific restrictions that develop with each injury. These are unique to each patient. We are taught that patients with similar diagnosis will have similar restrictions. However, this is rarely true, especially with chronic conditions that involve multiple structures that range across a larger kinetic chain. Being specific to the individual is often the key to getting a full resolution of a condition.


R is Release. Our primary objective is to release the restrictions that inhibit our patients from achieving being fully functional.

What is Motion Specific Release?

Using Motion Specific Release can be life-changing for your patients with its innovative approach to treating a musculoskeletal issue.

Motion Specific Release is a hands-on, evidence-based technique that achieves remarkable results when treating a wide range of musculoskeletal condition within a short period of time.

MSR’s open platform allows you to integrate your techniques and methods into its powerful vocabulary of procedures. MRS’s powerful framework lets you grow your already existing practices by achieving better, more sustainable results.

MSR is based on both clinical experience and scientific research in the fields of:

  • Functional Anatomy
  • Neurology
  • Biomechanics
  • Orthopedics
  • Fascial Research
  • Kinetic Chain Relationships
  • Multi-disciplinary Perspectives
  • Functional Exercise Programs
  • Scientific Methodology

How Was Motion Specific Release Developed

Motion Specific Release was developed by internationally best-selling author, instructor, and Clinical Director of Kinetic Health, Dr. Brian Abelson DC. Dr. Abelson used both his extensive clinical experience and deep academic knowledge to develop this innovative and effective technique.

Dr. Abelson is a prolific author on the subject of soft-tissue injuries, exercise, and a wide array of related health and wellness subjects. He has authored seven books and over 30 articles during his career. He is currently working on his next project, a book specifically about the benefits of Motion Specific Release. In addition to writing, Dr. Abelson has served as an instructor for over 20 years, teaching musculoskeletal techniques, exercise programs, and various health-related seminars.
