MUA is a technique used by Doctors of Osteopathy to return range of motion and decrease pain in patients with severely limited joint movement.
The treatment improves articular and soft tissue movement while the patient is sedated under monitorized anesthesia care.

How does Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) help?

Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) is used by trained osteopathic doctor to break up adhesions and scar tissue causing pain and lack of movement.
The shoulder manipulation under anesthesia is particularly effective since most of the pain caused by frozen shoulder is eliminated when adhesions in the shoulder joint are broken down.
By using anesthesia, the patient is able to relax and the scar tissue and stiffness in the shoulder joint can be broken up more easily.
