Manipulation Under Anesthesia Q & A
How Does It Work?
Manipulation Under anesthesia is a manual therapy treatment technique which is used to improve articular and soft tissue movement using specifically controlled release, myofascial manipulation, and mobilization techniques while the patient is under light IV sedation using monitored anesthesia care (MAC). After medical clearance, the patient is lightly anesthetized to achieve total relaxation, then adjustments and stretching movements which would normally be too painful to even consider performing in the office are easily, painlessly and quickly accomplished.
