Muscle Energy Technique

Muscle Energy Technique

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a manual therapy approach used by healthcare professionals, including physical therapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths, to address musculoskeletal issues and improve joint mobility. MET is characterized by its active involvement of the client, who is asked to actively contract and then relax specific muscles while the therapist provides resistance or guidance. This technique is particularly useful for improving joint function, increasing range of motion, and reducing muscle imbalances and pain.

During a MET session, the therapist first assesses the client’s range of motion and identifies areas of restriction or discomfort. Then, the client is asked to perform specific muscle contractions in a controlled and precise manner, often against the therapist’s resistance. These contractions are typically held for a few seconds before the client relaxes, allowing the therapist to guide the joint or muscle into a new position.

MET is a versatile technique that can be used to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, from joint stiffness and muscle tightness to postural problems and even certain types of joint misalignments. It is often employed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, alongside other manual therapy modalities and exercise programs, to optimize functional outcomes.

One of the key advantages of MET is its patient involvement, which allows clients to actively participate in their own recovery and rehabilitation. It is considered safe and effective when performed by skilled and trained therapists and can contribute to improved joint mobility, reduced pain, and enhanced overall musculoskeletal health.
