What is Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA)? MUA is a non-invasive procedure used to treat acute and chronic conditions. Most commonly neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions, and long term pain syndromes. Using light sedation, slight painful adjustments and movements are accomplished quickly and pain-free to greatly improve or restore range of motion. MUA is great for patients who are not responding to traditional care or have failed to improve after surgery.
