Muscle Energy Techniques

Muscle energy techniques use a client’s voluntary muscle action from a precisely controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counterforce provided by the therapist. This type of treatment is used for muscle relaxation, pain relief and joint mobilizations to bring about improved range of motion and joint alignment. It was first described by Fred Mitchell Sr, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
