I would like to make members aware of the procedure:

Manipulation Under Anesthesia or MUA is a very slow form of manipulation and stretching of the affected area while the patient is sedated. The procedure takes about 25 minutes and is traditionally performed over a series of three days. MUA has been effective in treating various conditions like neck, mid and low back pain, muscle spasm, chronic fibrous adhesions, disc bulges, disc herniations, failed back surgery and other pain syndromes.


  • I saw a video on MUA. Looks painful. Scarey too. Not sure I want someone I hardly know doing those sorts of things to my body....

    But, hey - to each his own. If SOMEONE (ANYONE) gets relief from this, I'm happy for them!

  • I know that it looks pretty scary. I actually perform the procedure myself at a surgery center, and they think it is extreme. To me, it is well within my comfort zone. We don't go beyond anatomical range of motion, and it is slow.
    I saw an old MUA video when I was in school,along time ago, and it was very different from the current methodology. Just keep an open mind.
  • Lets see $20,000.00 for three treaments,that sounds kind of expensive to me..(No one knows for certain how often the procedure is used. But workers' comp carriers face bills of as much as $20,000 to pay for three successive days of MUA treatments, said Steve Jimenez, an attorney who has often found himself opposing chiropractors in workers' compensation cases)
  • that is rather excessive. The amount that is paid depends on the state. Worker's comp in NY for 3 treatments a Dr. can expect to get paid much less,usually around $800 per session.
