Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Neck Pain
Manipulation Under Anesthesia of the cervical spine (neck) is one of the most gentle procedures that we offer our patients. If you suffer from Migraines, cluster headaches, painful movement from automobile accidents, then MUA is the treatment of choice for you. As stated in the Low Back section, gentle movement is accomplished to relieve muscle spasm and the motion that has been decreased from trauma, or chronic recurrent types of headaches. MUA is gentle, and the force that is used to move the spinal segments is less than half the force that is used in the office environment. This allows the treating doctor to judge the motion and movement necessary to return your neck to its normal mobile state without hurting you in the process like some types of therapy might cause. MUA of the neck is one of more successful types of MUA.
