WHAT IS MUA?
Manipulation Under Anesthesia is exactly what it sounds like. 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 are easily, painlessly and quickly accomplished.
For more and more chiropractic patients who are not finding relief through conventional treatments and other invasive procedures such as surgery, MUA combined with consistent but simple post-procedure treatment and exercise can eliminate or greatly reduce pain and restore or greatly improve range of motion. Plus, MUA procedures are cost-effective - thousands of dollars less than traditional surgery and other more invasive treatments - and usually qualify for insurance coverage.
In addition, return-to-work is much faster, allowing MUA patients to get back to work and the pleasure of living much sooner than expected.
