Muscle Energy Techniques with DVD-ROM

This comprehensive text describes the basis and practice of Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), a widely recognized approach to treating musculoskeletal dysfunction. It describes those manipulative techniques in which a patient, on request, actively uses his or her muscles from a controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counterforce applied by the practitioner. These techniques are combined from methods used in physical therapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and manual medicine. A companion DVD-ROM includes video clips demonstrating the application of techniques.

All Manual therapists ie osteopaths, chiropractors, manipulative physical therapists – students and practitioners for all groups. Orthopaedic medicine practitioners. Massage therapists. All those working in sports training and rehab.
