Muscle Energy Technique (MET) Treatment of Thoracic Segmental Hypomobility

In this video, I demonstrate the application of Muscle Energy Technique (MET) to address movement restriction associated with thoracic segmental hypomobility. The objective narrative involves establishing the range of motion (ROM) status of joints and identifying the painless resistance barrier (R1).

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is defined by Leon Chaitow as a form of soft tissue technique 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 therapist-applied counterforce.
