Muscle energy technique is a form of manual therapy in which the muscle's own energy is used to induce relaxation and promote pain relief. This technique is especially useful when the cause of pain and stiffness are muscles. It achieves pain relief and relaxation in muscles using a specialized structure in the muscles called the Golgi tendon organ.
At Washington Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation established in Kirkland, WA, our efficient physical therapists are trained to used muscle energy techniques along with other physical therapy methods. During the treatment session, you will be asked to actively participate in facilitating and relaxing muscle groups. Under the direction of the therapist, you will learn to lengthen the shortened muscle, relieve muscle spasm and reduce tone in spastic muscles.
