What is MUA?
Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) is an insurance-reimbursable and non-invasive procedure. It is is used to treat acute and chronic conditions that may not be treatable by standard massage and chiropractic adjustments due to long-standing pain.
Some of these include: chronic back pain, neck pain, muscle spasms, arthritic conditions, persistently shortened muscles and long-term pain syndromes. Using a light sedation, our doctors perform adjustments and movements that were once too painful to be applied.
This allows us to get adequate motion in a once static joint. Most patients feel pain-free and have a great improvement in their range of motion post-procedure. This is a viable alternative for patients that are not responding well to traditional conservative care, or failed attempts with surgeries to correct the pain.
