Manual Muscle Testing

By testing and retesting muscles in relation to each other, we learn which muscles are chronically tight to brace for weaker and inhibited muscles. This brings us closer to understanding the cause of unresolved conditions. In the brain there is a Motor control centre, where all movement patterns are coordinated.  In order to move, messages are sent from the control centre via the spine and to the muscles where movement then takes place.

Muscle testing therefore is a technique that not only recognizes the importance of motor control theory; it utilizes it to make significant changes in movement patterns. When a client cannot perform a manual muscle test, the Motor control centre “Lights Up” and becomes available for new learning. The brain learns from failure and it has to relearn functional movement patterns and rid itself of dysfunctional ones, which is very often the case causing you pain.

Muscle testing is an excellent modality in rehabilitation and manual therapy because it not only identifies the cause of pain and dysfunction, but also corrects it very quickly and painlessly. I use a whole body integrated approach to help you resolve your pain and improve your quality of life and movement once again!
