A question I often get asked is “Why do isometrics work well to isolate pain?” I started adding isometrics to improve pain during motion and pain and end range with active and passive testing.
They work great! Forget “muscle energy technique” and other theories. They are too mechanical. I go over the reason why isometrics work well as a compliment to manual therapy and repeated loading strategies.
