MET primarily reduces the tone in a hypertonic "tight" muscle, re-establishing its normal resting length or "balance." Shortened and hypertonic muscles frequently are the reason for restricted motion of a joint or a group of joints. MET is used to help mobilize restricted joints by stretching hypertonic muscles, capsules, ligaments, and fascia and gently re-educate the hypertonic muscle to its original range and function. This leads to improved postural alignment and the restoration of proper joint biomechanics and functional movement. This treatment is also excellent for post pregnancy moms to balance the hips and low back after the birth process.
