Muscle Energy Technique (MET)

Muscle Energy Technique (MET)

Enhance your therapeutic experience with Muscle Energy Technique (MET), a specialized modality offered by our expertly trained therapists as an addition to your treatment. This form of osteopathic manual therapy utilizes very precise muscle contractions against the therapist's counter force in order to reduce tension in the musculature - improving joint mobility.

MET is known to be  highly effective in treating a many conditions such as muscle strains, spasms, a loss in range of motion, pelvis and sacrum misalignment, cervical dysfunctions and much more. The principles of MET are based on utilizing muscle in a way that they directly impact the position and movement of bones, thus, precise muscle contractions are used to correct imbalances resulting in improved joint mobility. This modality is not commonly found among therapists with a deep understanding and expertise in it.

During an MET session, your therapist will first assess the range of motion and flexibility of the affected joint. They will then use a series of specific muscle contractions to stretch and align the muscles and tissues surrounding the joint. The therapist may also use other techniques such as ice, heat, and stretching to further enhance the treatment.

MET is a non-invasive and quick addition to your therapy and has been shown to be highly effective in relieving pain and improving function in many individuals.

Overall, Muscle Energy Technique is a valuable tool for many manual therapists and can be a highly effective treatment option for those suffering from muscle and tissue injuries or chronic pain.
