Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) is a non-invasive procedure increasingly offered for chronic conditions, including: Headaches, Neck and back pain, leg pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, fibromyalgia, and long term pain syndromes. It is considered safe and is utilized to treat pain arising from the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine as well as the sacroiliac, pelvic regions, and joints.
MUA uses a combination of specific short lever manipulations, passive stretches and specific articular and postural kinesthetic maneuvers in order to break up fibrous adhesions and scar tissue around the joints, the spine, and surrounding tissue.
Licensed Physicians who have specialized training specifically for this procedure perform the treatment in a surgical center. A team approach is required to have a safe and successful outcome.
The team includes the anesthesiologist, two primary physicians who perform the manipulation, and the nursing staff who are specially trained in per- and post procedure protocols.
The combination of the manipulation and anesthesia is not new as this treatment has been part of the medical arena for more than 80 years.
When body movement is difficult the benefit of being sedated is obvious, but the anesthesia performs other important functions such as:
Interrupting the cycle of muscle spasm to allow for increased movement
Sedates the pain perceiving nerves that have been irritated due to the dysfunctional spine or joint
Allows complete muscle relaxation so that the doctor can stretch shortened muscle groups and reduce adhesions caused by scar tissue

I have been a patient of Dr Kisla's for 15 years. I came to her with a serious back injury. She worked with me and relieved my pain and today my back and flexibility are better than ever! I go in for a "tune up" each month and at the age of 52 I am able to work at a very physically demanding job and wouldn't be able to do it without her care! Thank You Dr K
Amazing!!! Dr. Kisla healed my carpal tunnel. I was ready to have surgery and now I don't need to!!! Plus, my headaches and neck pain have resolved and I no longer suffer to walk due to lower back pain. My entire family now goes to Dr. Kisla for all of their ailments! Her staff is amazing too!!! She comes highly recommended by everyone I speak to.
