Muscle testing is an incredibly useful diagnostic tool used properly by only a handful of health professionals.

When you find a weak muscle, you have uncovered a real or potential injury. Find a patient with NO strong muscles and you have someone who is really sick and has no hope of an accurate diagnsis or treatment from any other practitioner.

A lot of health professionals test muscles but most do it badly. They don’t fully understand that muscle tone is the real key to indestructible health and a robust body.

Weak muscles can’t support joints and ligaments and 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”.

What we miss is that the only reason our brain needs to know where our limbs are is to to be able to control our muscle tone.

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

Knowing this 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 weakness. 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
