Manipulation Under Anesthesia with Fibrosis Release Procedures (MUA-FRP)
Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA-FRP) is a non-invasive procedure that has been utilized for over 70 years. It is increasingly offered for acute and chronic unresolved conditions such as: neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions, and long term pain syndromes. The procedure consists of the patient being sedated with anesthesia (pre-op Versed or Fentanyl) and during the MUA may include the anesthesiologist’s choice of Propofol (Diprivan), Midazolam (Versed), Sufentanyl, and, occasionally, Succinylcholine, through a secured IV. The MUA-FRP is performed by a specially trained MD, DO or DC in a local surgical center.
Patient selection criteria is very specific, if you have suffered with chronic back pain, shoulder pain, hip or knee pain with restricted range of motion, you may be a candidate.
