Muscle energy technique for joint mobilisation

This article outlines the benefits of muscle energy technique (MET) in the clinical setting and its diverse use in a variety of clinical presentations as well as its versatility in terms of its application (isometric, isotonic, isolytic, pulsed variations, etc.). The application of MET techniques to a number of tissues and joints is described, with explanation of how the technique is carried out, clinical reasoning and a kinetic chain comment. The reader will better understand how METs can be applied in a wider setting of joint mobilisation, where joint manipulation techniques are contraindicated or not available to the practitioner, or where METs can be integrated into the manipulative therapists' repertoire. This article includes a certificated elearning assessment.
