Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA)

Overview
This is a form of therapy that allows doctors to
move your body without causing you any discomfort
or pain. It's a technique used by specially-trained
physicians and chiropractors, and it can be helpful
for a variety of patients. During the procedure, you
are given medicine that relaxes you or puts you to
sleep. Then, your care team moves and stretches
your body into specific positions based on your
needs. As part of the procedure, some patients may
be given injections that will help relieve pain.


How It's Used
MUA can be used to help care for many types of
pain. This includes pain from injuries and pain from
chronic conditions. It's often used to care for
problems with the spine or with specific joints.


MUA Examples
With MUA, a doctor can target painful scar tissue
inside the body. For example, after a surgical
procedure, you may be at risk for soft tissue
adhesions. That's when soft tissues become stuck
together. MUA can help prevent adhesions from
forming, or it can help break them apart. And, MUA
can also free a joint that has become frozen in
place.


Safe Care
MUA is a safe form of care that is helpful for many
patients. Your healthcare provider can create a plan
that's right for you.
