Manipulation Under Anesthesia
Manipulation Under Anesthesia is a conservative treatment alternative for chronic pain patients. Spinal manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure that primarily originated with the osteopathic profession and has been utilized for the treatment of spinal pain since the late 1930’s. Spinal manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure that is intended for patients that suffer from sometimes acute but mostly chronic musculoskeletal disorders. The procedure is extremely beneficial for the patient that has muscle spasm accompanied with pain and joint range of motion loss. The individuals have also been unresponsive to conservative care. Ones pain may be from a disc bulge / herniation, chronic sprain / strain, failed back surgery, and other musculoskeletal issues. These types of patients typically respond well to chiropractic manipulation / physical therapy / exercise, but the relief may only be temporary ( days – weeks). Manipulation under anesthesia consists of many of the same techniques utilized in a typical chiropractic office but with the advantage of having the patient fully relaxed. The procedure typically takes a total of 20 min. Inquire if you feel you are a candidate.
