Some Movements In Manipulation Under Anesthesia Procedure

1 Gentle axial traction is used in several places in the cervical spine(neck) before manipulation of the vertebral segments.
2 Straight leg raises using progressive linear force allows for gentle stretching of tight hamstring muscles.
3 Single knee/hip stretches single out tightened pelvic muscles that help with return of lower back flexibility.
4 Lower back stretches help alter accumulated adhesions around the discs, joints, joint capsules and surrounding soft tissues (muscles).
5 Manipulative therapy is much easier to perform when adhesions that cause chronic joint fixations are altered using stretching while the patient is in restful twilight sleep (conscious sedation).
