Muscle Energy Technique:

Muscle Energy Technique is one of the most effective and valuable manual techniques for the identification and correction of somatic asymmetry and hypomobility. Fred Mitchell Sr. D.O. who is considered one of the patriarchs of Muscle Energy Technique, was a pioneer in forward thinking as he searched to develop an alternative to manipulative therapies. These techniques have been refined over the years and are even more accurate, efficient and effective than in their original form. These techniques can be used immediately to find and correct the causes of all types of pain. These are not cover up procedures, but rather, techniques that cure the problem with dramatic results.

Muscle Energy is based on EVIDENCE BASED NEURO-PHYSIOLOGY that the joints are held out of place by muscles which have too much tone.  The technique positions the joint in the direction of restriction of motion and recalibrates the precise muscle spindles which are holding the bone in a less than optimal position.  The muscle returns to normal resting length, tone and excitability thus allowing the joint to return to the normal position.  By re-calibrating the spindle and correcting the cause of the dysfunction, the techniques will correct all types of biomechanical / orthopedic problems.  Each two-day course involves a mix of theory, demonstration and hands on practice. Actual evaluation and treatments will be performed by each participant using the methods learned.  Plenty of time is allotted for hands on practice as well as questions and discussion.
