What is Manipulation Under Anesthesia?
Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) is a non -invasive procedure which combines manual manipulation or movement of muscles and joints of extremities or the spine with an anesthetic. Individuals who are unable to tolerate manual procedures due to pain, spasm, muscle contractures, or guarding may benefit from the use of an anesthetic agent prior to manipulation. Others who are stiff and tight experience great benefits from MUAs.
Propofol is the anesthetic and is easy to handle and allows for deep sleep. Dr. Anderson is able to move the body with ease, allowing for maximum benefits to the tendons, ligaments and joints.

I lifted with no or very minor pain in my left shoulder. Mobility in the thoracic is incredible. I’m pretty impressed with what one MUA treatment did and look forward to another treatment.
