Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA)

Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) is a non-surgical procedure where a patient is put under anesthesia, then Dr. Elder manually provides stretching, traction and mobilization movements.  Patients are under general anesthesia or moderately sedated.

What is MUA? 

The practice of MUA is designed to break up scar tissue, fibrous tissue and adhesions that are limiting movement. Anesthesia is needed to keep the patient comfortable and to keep the muscles from flexing or spasming as a result of the movements performed.

Why? 

This approach is a non-invasive alternative to other methods and is considered safe.  It has been used by medical professionals for over 60 years.
