There is no one special technique that cures all.
For those of you who have been so kind to have taken one f my classes before, you all know I’m a huge lover of mixing techniques to attempt to achieve outcomes which lead to an improvement in our patients quality of life and function.
I”ve always taught and demonstrated incorporation of LAST with MET, PR (Positional Release), TP, and so on.
Here’s a nice Abstract demonstrating just this.
I’ll be contacting the RMTABC to attempt to retrieve the full article.

This case report presents two successful treatment outcomes of cervical disc herniation (CDH) with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) treated using manual therapy technique of the muscle energy technique (MET), ligamentous articular strain (LAS) and additional herbal medicine intake, acupuncture and pharmacopuncture sessions. Significant improvements were reported in the outcome measures at admission and at discharge for Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Neck Disability Index (NDI) scores and physical examinations followed by approximately three weeks of hospital admission. The successful outcomes suggest that integrative conservative management focused on muscle energy techniques (MET) and ligamentous articular strain (LAS) are effective in contributing to the conservative management of cervical disc herniation (CDH) with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).
