MUA is an extremely rewarding procedure for patients undergoing a painful time in their lives.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Preferred Pain Center, the most comprehensive pain management center in the Southwest, offers manipulation under anesthesia for its patients.
Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that is increasingly being offered for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Joint Pain
- Fibrous Adhesions
The Manipulation Under Anesthesia procedure is widely considered to be a safe treatment, but not completely risk free. The procedures are performed by licensed physicians with specialized training and certification specifically for MUA. The treatments are performed at Preferred Pain Center’s outpatient surgery center under light IV sedation, which is a “twilight” type of anesthesia. A team approach with 2 physician/chiropractors is used to break up the patient’s scar tissue and fibrous adhesions. To ensure the best possible long term outcome, the procedure is performed over multiple sessions.
The manipulation under anesthesia procedure has been in existence for over 60 years with the effects of breaking up scar tissue, decreasing muscle spams, overcoming super sensitivity of injured areas such as pain from a herniated or degenerated intervertebral disc.
Preferred Pain Center often sees patients with the following diagnoses who qualify for the procedure:
- Chronic headaches
- Chronic back pain or neck pain of all varieties
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
- Sciatica or Degenerative Disc Disease
- Failed back surgery
MUA is an extremely rewarding procedure for patients. The Phoenix chiropractic doctor manipulates the affected joints and soft tissue with out any resistance from the patient and therefore achieves significantly more range of motion of tissues that otherwise would remain stiff.
The patient benefits from the procedure by increasing the range of motion without feeling the manipulation. Another great attribute to having (MUA) Manipulation under Anesthesia is that there is minimal pain and very little recovery.
Numerous high profile athletes have undergone Manipulation Under Anesthesia with an MUA Doctor successfully, including the likes of 4 time Heavyweight Boxing Champion Evander Holyfield and Baseball Hall of Famer Gary Carter.
“Preferred Pain Center not only has the Best Chiropractor in Phoenix 2010 certified and performing MUA’s, Dr. Sky Moore, the Center also provides a state of the art facility for other chiropractors to become certified in MUA and bring their patients. It’s 10,000 square feet, modern, and focused on patients. You will not find a more competent doctor or premier licensed facility than what our Center provides,” said CEO David Greene.
So if you don't quite move the way you used to and have had some previous Chiropractic care or Physical therapy you probably are a good candidate for MUA. MUA is a covered health expense by most insurance carriers.
