Medical Exercise Therapy or MET is a concept used worldwide to organize exercises in a powerful treatment protocol for patients with musculoskeletal and locomotor dysfunctions. It is not only used for the treatment of patients, but also in the prevention of overuse lesions in workers and athletes.
Medical Exercise Therapy is an active rehabilitation system based on more than 30 years of clinical experience and research. Through active exercise, patients can be put directly into an exercise program aimed at treating pain and decreased motion, increasing endurance and strength, as well as improving activities of daily living. The system accommodates for treating athletes and patients with acute or chronic pain. Emphasis is on increasing tolerance and normalizing muscle imbalance and coordination.
MET can address orthopedic dysfunctions from conditions such as supraspinatus tendinitis, sciatica, hip arthritis, and patellofemoral pain.
The Medical Exercise Therapy approach has its own defined criteria, including minimum time and repetitions, which differ depending on the patient’s diagnosis and age and physical ability. Your therapist will create plan which is intended to address your specific concerns and pain. The high number of repetitions are aimed at treating the pain experience and to increase range of motion.
