Looking for Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)?
This grouping of movement-oriented active therapies combines active, direct techniques that promote muscle relaxation by activating nerve cells embedded in the muscle belly and/or tendon. There are several distinct techniques, which may be called Muscle Energy Techniques including Reciprocal Inhibition (RI), Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Their purpose is to gain motion that is limited by restrictions of neuromuscular structures.
