Muscle Energy Techniques

Sometimes the nervous system has set the muscle in the wrong place in a position of constant tension. This means that joint moved by that muscle has a reduced ranged of motion.

Muscle Energy Techniques or MET is used to reset the muscle to the right tension by engaging and stretching that muscle until the muscle is more relaxed and movement is returned. It is a gentle treatment which has many successful uses.

It is usually used in combination with Articulation and together they are very effective at mobilising restricted joints.

MET can also be used to strengthen weaker muscle groups as well as stretch out muscle groups that are too tight.
