The Dr. Sanet Lecture Series - Muscle Energy Technique September 21-24, 2018
Elements of MET have been described and documented for many years. Fred Mitchell Sr. D.O., F.A.A.O. is generally given credit for developing the MET system in its modern day form.
Muscle Energy offers a complete approach to diagnosis and treating somatic dysfunction with an arsenal of both direct and indirect techniques.
With MET, the patient performs an isometric contraction wherein the following physiologic changes occur:
Golgi tendon organ activation results in direct inhibition of agonist muscles.1- A reflexive reciprocal inhibition occurs with respect to the antagonistic muscles.
In this course you will be introduced to history, application, theory and technique of Muscle Energy. The application will be demonstrated and applied in class to all areas of the body. You will be taught proper technique and then guided through practical application with a high teacher to student ratio to promote the full understanding of the material in action.
