Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) address the neurological control the brain exerts over muscles and movement coordination. All movement and tension in the body is regulated by the nervous system and MET helps to reset the system, reduce painful feedback, and re-educate movement patterns. Highly specific movement and resistance exercises engage and disengage muscles and nerve signals to create the desired effects. MET almost always reduces pain and/or tension and sometimes melts the problem away like magic.
MET is used to reduce pain, improve healing through circulation and nutrient delivery, retraining proper movement, breaking down adhesions, improving strength, reducing trigger points, resetting muscle tension, and improving range of motion… just to name a few!
