Muscle Energy Technique

Used in osteopathy and physical therapy  to treat somatic dysfunction presenting as loss of range of motion secondary to muscular inhibition or facilitation.

Neuromuscular Re-education

A technique for re-education of balance movement, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, and proprioception.
