Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Fibormyalgia Relief
Manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure I do to help people with chronic pain conditions in their joints. It has a very high success rate and basically we put the patient to sleep for 30 minutes or so and go through a range of stretches and adjustments that normally they wouldn’t be able to cope with if they were awake due to the amount of pain they are in. Manipulation under anesthesia for fibromyalgia relief works in much the same way. We’re looking to break up adhesions and fibrous tissues while trying to improve range of motion and function. As the patient is asleep, they are in a very relaxed state which enables the treatments to happen with minimal resistance. The effect of one manipulation under anesthesia is equivalent to twelve regular therapy sessions.
