Testing muscles is a primary and practical way to determine a condition called muscle imbalance, where two or more muscles are not properly working together. It is like when your favorite team goes out to play but some of the players are sick and just not playing well – the whole team suffers. Muscle imbalance is a common cause of injury, pain, and disability, the use of muscle testing can be as important as blood, urine, X-rays, and physical examinations. But much quicker!
While associated with joint, ligament, tendon, and bone problems, muscle imbalance can significantly impair physical movement, such as walking, reduce sports performance, and even lower the overall quality of life.
A term commonly associated with muscle testing is kinesiology, referring to the study of human movement. It is a topic taught in the coursework of many colleges, universities, and postdoctoral programs. Through an understanding of kinesiology, practitioners can better use muscle testing to evaluate posture, gait, and all other movements.
Tens of thousands of health practitioners around the world, in hospitals, clinics, private practice, on sports teams, and elsewhere, employ some form of muscle testing in their work. In addition, hundreds of studies have been published in scientific journals on this topic.
As an important part of a comprehensive physical evaluation, muscle testing can help discover the cause of a particular injury or disability. It can also quickly assist in measuring the effectiveness of specific treatments.
So if you know you are not performing the way you should, you know something isn’t right and you are ready for a change from Drugs and Surgery come get a muscle check.
