Muscle Energy Technique (MET) a collective name for stretches or movements that aim to relax, lengthen and strengthen muscles by using a person's own effort and movement in the form of gentle isometric contractions. (An isometric contraction is where there is a contraction of a muscle but that muscle does not move.)
Whatever the issue, be a muscle weak, strong or tight and regardless of whether it is a primary component or secondary problem, it does not matter, Muscle Energy Techniques can often help.
