MET can be performed using Smart Probes or AS-Trode electrodes. Prior to performing any method of MET for pain management, it is important to analyze the pain and assess the following:
- Where are all pains/problems located?
- What position(s) exacerbate them?
- How bad are they on a 0 – 10 scale right now?
- Note any obvious signs
- Note range of motion
- Think holistically, note any related problems
- Note all scars and old injuries
Now, let’s review the MET treatment protocols.
