How Dr. Tafler does Manipulations Under Anesthesia?

Dr. Tafler is a highly skilled chiropractor who has gained a reputation for performing manipulations under anesthesia (MUA). MUA is a specialized procedure that involves manipulating the joints and spine while the patient is under general anesthesia. This procedure is used to relieve chronic pain and restore mobility for patients who have failed to respond to other traditional chiropractic treatments.

MUA is typically used for patients with conditions such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and arthritis. The procedure is performed in a hospital setting and involves the use of general anesthesia to ensure the patient is completely relaxed and unable to feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Dr. Tafler’s expertise in performing MUA stems from his extensive training and experience in the field of chiropractic care. He understands the importance of providing a comprehensive approach to treating chronic pain and has developed a reputation for delivering successful outcomes for his patients.

The procedure itself involves Dr. Tafler carefully manipulating the affected joints and spine to loosen any tight muscles and restore mobility. He uses gentle, controlled movements to avoid any further damage to the affected area. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Tafler continuously monitors the patient’s vital signs to ensure their safety and comfort.

The results of MUA are often immediate and dramatic. Patients typically experience a significant reduction in pain and an improvement in mobility following the procedure. Additionally, the effects of MUA can last for several months or even years, providing patients with long-term relief from their chronic pain.

In conclusion, Dr. Tafler’s expertise in performing manipulations under anesthesia has made him a trusted chiropractor in the community. He has a deep understanding of the complexities of chronic pain and provides a comprehensive approach to help patients achieve a better quality of life. If you are suffering from chronic pain and have failed to respond to other traditional treatments, consider contacting Dr. Tafler to schedule a consultation and explore the benefits of MUA.

  • Chronic, painful disc ailments
  • Failed back surgery syndrome

How is the Treatment Performed?

First, your medical provider must determine that sedated manipulation is a viable treatment for your case. When it is, your osteopath will work with a team to perform the procedure. An anesthesiologist will administer and monitor the sedation, while the osteopath uses a variety of manipulation techniques to achieve the desired outcome. Those technique may include stretching, adjusting, and other movements to realign and mobilize the affected area of the body.

In most cases, the entire procedure takes only about 10-15 minutes, after which the patient is awakened and kept in a recovery area for further monitoring. Patients often report marked improvement in symptoms like pain after just one treatment session.

Dr. Tafler took me in for a weekend to receive manipulation under anesthesia. Two weeks later I was able to walk without pain. I have been pain free since that moment until today, many years after initial treatment. Without his treatment I do not know if I would have been able to walk at all.
