Poster Abstract

The objective of this clinical review is to stimulate interest in medicine assisted manipulation (MAM), also known as manipulation under anesthesia (MUA). By providing evidence from published studies regarding the use of MUA, as well as identifying its benefits and limitations, our group hopes to increase awareness of this technique and contribute to its implementation to assist in overall pain reduction and reduce opioid medication dosing. A retrospective literature review was undertaken to investigate the extent of published information on the topic in order to compile evidence based data and provide the reader with a summary of both the benefits and the flaws of the technique. We intend for this manuscript to serve as a starting point to stimulate readers’ interest into further research and discussion on MUA. We see MUA as a means of providing patients with additional treatment options as well as an opportunity to raise awareness of an uncommon, yet effective, manipulative technique.
