Leon Chaitow 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. Details the background to soft tissue dysfunction and explains the chain reactions which occur as part of such dysfunctions. Provides precise assessment and diagnosis guidelines. Gives many variations on the safe use of MET in acute, chronic, and rehabilitation settings. Explains the use of MET for whole muscle problems, local dysfunction, and joint restrictions.
Suggests patient self-application methods. Information is expanded on some of the techniques included in previous edition. Content is updated throughout, with reference to the latest published research.
