What is APT?

Muscle Energy Technique. MET

Muscle Energy Technique is a type of osteopathic manipulative treatment used in osteopathic medicine, physical therapy, massage therapists and occupational therapy.[1] It is a form of osteopathic manipulative diagnosis and treatment in which the patient's muscles are actively used on request, from a precisely controlled position, in a specific direction, and against a distinctly executed physician counterforce. It was first described in 1948 by Fred Mitchell, Sr, D.O.[2] Muscle energy techniques are used to treat somatic dysfunction, especially decreased range of motion, muscular hypertonicity, and pain.

Treatment Method

Using muscle relaxation after an isometric contraction, the muscle will break down the barriers of pathological movement.
Joint operation by using the reverse of the muscle contraction joint to find the original location of the joints.

Using the modality for pain control

Transcutaneous nerve stimulation therapy (TENS), Interference current treatment(ICT), Deep Heat Treatment(Ultra sound for treatment)

Ultra sound

Causing friction with the fluctuations of the molecular organization of ultrasonic absorption effects induced thermal effects and promote healing

Electric therapy

  • Interference current by lowering the resistance of the skin, causing pain control comfortably.
  • TENS-The treatment of pain caused by a variety of causes peripheral sensory nerves of the skin.

Surface heat treatment

Promote or block the circulation of the surface by applying heat or cold for pain control.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy

  • Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy or ESWT is a method of treatment for multiple tendonopathies, derived from lithotripsy.
  • Pseudoarthrosis, fracture, delayed union, lime in tenosynovitis Mars, plantar fasciitis, calcaneal spur, internal injuries, trauma, epicondylitis (tennis elbow, golf elbow) is useful for diseases such as pain by inducing the synthesis of new components or changes in the chemical composition of the lesiondecrease. By increasing the blood supply to the lesion, reducing inflammation and pain by stimulating nerve fibers transient gateway moderating effect depending on the patient's pain threshold increases the analgesic effects induced.

multi spine(maidas)

  • Moving platform in three-dimensional rotational movement forward locomotion strengthen the muscles around the area to the square of the deep bone muscle the existing linear reciprocating movement of the features do not meet.
  • Treatment of all spinal disorders and helps to correct deformed joints and spine twisted up.
  • Good part of maintaining a state of weightlessness and a wide variety of uses for solid railing, pain treatment, rehabilitation and orthodontic treatment.

Deep stimulation electromagnetic therapy

  • Pain, treatment can be difficult to treat areas without the side effects of conventional device.
  • Stimulate deep within the human body more than 10cm.
  • Stimulation System combines the world's first complex of medical electromagnetic generator, and medical laser irradiation.
  • Indications: Musculoskeletal disorders, spinal disorders, neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease, IMS procedures, procedures, and other TPI.
