The Muscle Energy Technique (MET) was developed by several clinicians, but most often is credited to Fred Mitchell, DO. MET is used to help correct asymmetry and hypomobility within joint structures without the high-velocity, “thrusting” types of manipulation often used by chiropractors. These techniques can correct many types of orthopedic problems and are highly effective when used in conjunction with other “hands-on” techniques. MET uses the muscle’s own contractive ability to recalibrate the joint position and return the muscle to proper length, tone and function.
At Inner Circle, we utilize MET within our comprehensive treatment approach to assist patients in returning to their active lifestyles.
Our hands-on approach, utilizing manual therapy and exercise, has helped even the most difficult diagnoses (including fibromyalgia, herniated discs, arthritis, orthopedic injuries and other chronic pain syndromes) to change and heal.
Inner Circle’s hope for the future is to continue to grow, support and provide the optimal physical therapy service in our community.
At Inner Circle, our focus is on you and not your diagnosis. Our hands on approach is non-invasive and gentle, but effective. You are in control of your health, we are here to help! Fill out the form below or reach out to one of our locations today to schedule an appointment!
