Muscle Energy Technique is one of the most effective and valuable manual techniques for the identification and correction of somatic asymmetry and hypomobility. Fred Mitchell Sr. D.O., who is considered the patriarch of Muscle Energy Technique, was a pioneer in forward thinking as he searched to develop an alternative to manipulative therapies. These techniques have been refined over the years and are even more accurate, efficient and effective than in their original form. These techniques can be used immediately to find and correct the causes of all types of pain. These are not cover up procedures, but rather techniques that cure the problem with dramatic results.

Unlike manipulative therapies, which presume joints are stuck out of place by some physiologic glue, Muscle Energy is based on evidence-based neuro-physiological principles that the joints are held out of place by muscles which have too much tone.

 NCBTMB-Approved-Provider LogoTom Ockler P.T. has extensive teaching experience throughout the United States, Canada, England and Australia. As a teacher, Tom has earned the nickname “The Patch Adams of Physical Therapy” due to his unique style of injecting humor into complicated subjects. He has developed teaching methods that explain very complicated subjects in easily understandable formats. His two books Muscle Energy Technique for Lower Extremities, Pelvis, Sacrum, and Lumbar Spine and Muscle Energy Techniques for the Thoracic Spine, Ribs, Shoulder and Cervical Spine have been hailed by students as the most user friendly and useful Muscle Energy manuals ever.
