Understanding the Focus on Function in MET

Addressing Residual Functional Deficits: With insurance carriers reducing the number of physical therapy sessions, many clients are discharged before reaching optimal functional levels. MET steps in to manage these residual functional deficits.

The Function Wheel: Dr. Mike introduces the 'function wheel,' which encompasses nine key components of function, including range of motion, flexibility, strength, coordination, power, joint stability, endurance, proprioception, balance, and cognitive capabilities.


Impact of MET on Various Conditions: The video highlights how exercise can significantly improve functional components impaired by injury, surgery, or medical conditions, such as stroke, hip replacement, MS, or back pain.
