Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA)
NOTICE: Manipulation Under Anesthesia is considered by many reputable heath organizations and insurance companies to be medically necessary for some conditions. However, due to insurance restrictions, Sauganash Wellness Center is not currently offering this service. Please contact our office for updates.
A highly specialized, non-invasive chiropractic stretching technique, Manipulation Under Anesthesia or MUA, helps chronic pain patients who are no longer responding to regular conservative care. MUA works by altering adhesions and scar tissues to restore range of motion and mobility while the patient is in a safe, temporary "twilight sleep." As an alternative therapy to surgery and medication, MUA consistently generates life-changing results for carefully selected patients.
MUA: The Procedure that Gives You Your Life Back
Adjustments that would normally be too painful to consider are easily, painlessly and quickly accomplished in just a few sessions. Typically, MUA is done for about three sessions over three consecutive days, along with additional check-ins with your chiropractic physician. Post-procedure therapy includes stretches, cryotherapy or electrical stimulation to eliminate or reduce any soreness.
This multi-disciplinary approach occurs in a surgical facility and is attended by your chiropractic physician, medical doctors, RNs, anesthesiologists and physical therapists. The adjustments during MUA are the same you would receive during regular chiropractic visits. But they require less force simply because of the relaxed state.
