Muscle testing is an incredibly useful diagnostic tool.

It is the fastest, most efficient way to find MUSCLE INHIBITION which is a lack of muscle tone. Muscle tone is the key to a robust body and indestructible health.

Muscle inhibition is the neurological cause of muscle weakness.

Muscle inhibition has either been caused but an injury, or is the cause of an injury (or potential injury).

Weak muscles can’t support joints and ligaments. It’s only a matter of time before those ligaments become sprained, strained, inflamed or arthritic.

But why proprioceptive?

We all know proprioception is commonly described as “body position sense”.

We need to know where our body is to be able to control our muscle tone.

When we change proprioception (and other afferent input) we change muscle tone.

Understanding how this works changes your muscle testing from a diagnostic curiosity to a treatment powerhouse.

Proprioceptive muscle testing is the fastest and easiest way to determine if your patient has muscle inhibition. It could well be the ONLY WAY to find the reasons why some patients continue to suffer from:

  • recurrent sprains
  • chronic strains
  • back pain
  • sciatica
  • neck pain
  • whiplash
  • fatigue
  • muscle weakness

Whether you’re a beginner or expert in muscle testing, the tips and techniques on this site will make sure your testing is objective and valid.
