Effects of muscle energy technique on pain, range of motion and function in patients with post-surgical elbow stiffness: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
MET can be used as an adjunct to the rehabilitation protocol to treat elbow stiffness and can be given safely in the early stages of post elbow fracture rehabilitation managed surgically with open reduction and rigid internal fixation.
To Compare the Effectiveness of Muscle Energy Technique and Deep Neck Flexors Training on Pain, Range of Motion and Functional Disability in Patients with Mechanical Neck Pain
TLDR
It is concluded from the study that, patients with mechanical neck pain, when treated by deep neck flexors training showed a significant treatment outcome when analyzed on VAS, NDI, and Goniometer for ROM.
Effects of Muscle Energy Technique and Neck Stabilization Exercises on Pain, Psychological Status, and Sleep Disturbance in Patients with Non-Specific Chronic Neck Pain
TLDR
Muscle energy technique and neck stabilization exercises and neck care are all effective in managing pain, neck disability, depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance in NSCNP patients, but neck stabilized exercises have a better effect than a muscle energy technique.
Effect of muscle energy technique Versus Motor control Exercise adjunct to conventional therapy on Pain, Range of motion and functional disability in patient with chronic neck pain
TLDR
This research will help in identifying rapid and long term effects of MET versus MCE with conventional therapy on patients with chronic neck pain.
Effects of static stretching as compared to autogenic inhibition and reciprocal inhibition muscle energy techniques in the management of mechanical neck pain: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Significant difference existed among static stretching, autogenic inhibition and reciprocal inhibition groups in terms of pain, disability and range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain.
Effect of Muscle Energy Techniques V/S Active Range of Motion Exercises on Shoulder Function Post Modified Radical Neck Dissection in patients with Head and Neck Cancer - A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
This study showed that both METs and AROM exercises were effective in proving shoulder range of motion, function and reducing pain in patients post MRND but-Muscle Energy Techniques were more effective when compared to ARom exercises.

TLDR
AI-MET is more effective than SS and RI-MET in terms of improving isometric muscle strength in patients with mechanical neck pain, and was found to be the most effective.
THE EFFICACY OF MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUE IN INDIVIDUALS WITH MECHANICAL NECK PAIN: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW
TLDR
It can be concluded that the application of MET improve neck movement through The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) criteria evaluated by pain score, pain threshold, range of motion, functional performance, and muscle thickness.
Effects of eccentric muscle energy technique versus static stretching exercises in the management of cervical dysfunction in upper cross syndrome: a randomized control trial.
TLDR
Both the techniques used were found to be equally effective in decreasing pain, improving cervical range of motion and reducing neck disability.

Comparison of muscle energy technique and positional release therapy in acute low back pain – RCT
TLDR
Both MET and PRT along with HMP for acute low back pain showed improvement following 8 days of treatment as per significant decrease in pain (VAS), amount of lumbar extension ROM, and disability level as per MODQ and can be used as an effective treatment regime in participants with acute lowBack pain.
Effect of manual therapy and stretching on neck muscle strength and mobility in chronic neck pain.
TLDR
Both manual therapy and stretching were effective short-term treatments for reducing both spontaneous and strain-evoked pain in patients with chronic neck pain, and both neck muscle strength and mobility improved similarly in both groups.
Effect of Global Posture Reeducation and of Static Stretching on Pain, Range of Motion, and Quality of Life in Women with Chronic Neck Pain: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Conventional stretching and muscle chain stretching in association with manual therapy were equally effective in reducing pain and improving the range of motion and quality of life of female patients with chronic neckPain, both immediately after treatment and at a six-week follow-up, suggesting that stretching exercises should be prescribed to chronic neck pain patients.
Short-Term Effect of Muscle Energy Technique on Pain in Individuals with Non-Specific Lumbopelvic Pain: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Subjects receiving MET demonstrated a decrease in VAS worst pain over the past 24 hours, thereby suggesting that MET may be useful to decrease LPP over 24 hours.

TLDR
Post isometric relaxation with and without stretch approach of Muscle energy technique can reduce the pain and disability in secondary school teachers with non-specific neck pain.
The immediate effect of manipulation versus mobilization on pain and range of motion in the cervical spine: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a single manipulation is more effective than mobilization in decreasing pain in patients with mechanical neck pain and both treatments increase range of motion in the neck to a similar degree.
