How effective is MUA?
“As a pain management physician I have seen firsthand the significant improvements provided by appropriate, multidisciplinary treatment. Manipulation under anesthesia can often make the difference in rehabilitation efforts when office-based treatments fail.”
Dr. Adam Weitzman, M.D., Board Certified Pain Management & Anesthesiology
“It’s now been 2 months since the procedure, and I feel great! I haven’t felt like this in over 20 years. I can walk with no pain and do stretches that I wasn’t able to attempt before the MUA. I would denitely recommend the MUA procedure to others who live in pain. If you are looking for long lasting and effective ways to cure your symptoms, MUA is the way to go. The sooner you do it, the better you will feel.”
Nick O Connor, Patient
