Course Description

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is an evidence-based manual therapy intervention for correcting often painful mobility impairments and activity restrictions related to the lumbopelvic region.  Restore proper biomechanics and functional movement for the low back and pelvis, without forceful manipulation. Precise muscle contractions and positions are used to normalize muscle tension and restore functional mobility. This course includes integration of MET with soft tissue techniques and exercise to manage pain and improve functional outcomes.

Teaching methods: Lecture, slide presentation, video demos and e-mail for Q&A for home study.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the role of proprioceptive reflexes and the muscle spindle in mediating neuromotor facilitation and inhibition.

  2. Define common types of somatic dysfunction/ mobility impairment for the lumbosacral spine and pelvis.

  3. Perform a structural examination to identify mobility impairment using palpation and specific joint motion testing of the lumbosacral spine and pelvis.

  4. Explain the role of muscle energy technique (MET) to manage somatic dysfunction/ mobility impairment of the lumbosacral spine and pelvis.

  5. Apply MET intervention and manual therapy as part of a plan of care to correct somatic dysfunction mobility impairment / of the lumbosacral spine and pelvis.
