Reciprocal Inhibition

The Law of Reciprocal Inhibition says that when one muscle is facilitated, it’s opposite is inhibited (relatively inhibited). So if we find a hypertonic muscle, it follows that there must be an inhibition of the antagonist – but I never found it – until recently. Turns out it was there all along, we were just not using the right tests. Watch these two new videos and find out how to confirm hypertonicity. Just one of the extraordinary shortcuts I will be teaching in the NEW Masterclasses starting January 2014.

PS I know, I know, I’ve done more final tours than the Rolling Stones. I am having to come back to the UK to sell my Berkhamsted practice so if you are looking to live in the fantastic part of the country, and get a great practice that pays all of your expenses from day 1, talk to me.

Twice the range of motion

Proprioception is a powerful ally in improving flexibility and strength. In this video, a 65 year old man demonstrates how he doubled his flexibility and increased his strength (after 10 years of yoga) in just one month, simply by removing his metal crowns.

My teachers noticed the difference

 

A dancer tells how her teachers noticed how much stronger she was the day after she removed her belly piercing. She told all her friends to take their piercings out and nearly all of them noticed a difference too (all except two).

If we put a “nail” through the skin, the flexor withdrawal reflex means we must facilitate some muscles to pull away from it. As the abdominals (in this case) are facilitated, the antagonists (low back extensors and rotators) will be inhibited.

Removing the inhibition allowed this young woman to dance better and got rid of her low back pain.

Weakness with very small amalgam

This is from the “leave no stone unturned” department. This young man loved to work out but his heavy lifting always damaged his back. That went on for months until I discovered that one, tiny amalgam filling was actually causing his weakness. He went on to make a full recovery once that amalgam was removed.

Denture Causing Weakness

Occasionally just the taste of the acrylic used to make dentures causes weakness. Some dentures, especially old ones are made with a very toxic chemical called monomer. Just the taste of this chemical is enough to cause weakness in some people.

The withdrawal reflex

In the last blog I showed how the myotatic reflex works to prevent our body being damaged by an outside force.

The withdrawal reflex (also known as the flexor withdrawal reflex) also exists to keep us safe.

Whenever our skin is stimulated, our muscles respond appropriately to remove us from harm’s way. Continue reading
