NeuroKinetic Therapy is based on the premise that when an injury has occurred, certain muscles shut down or become inhibited, forcing other muscles to become overworked. This compensation pattern can create pain or tightness. By applying light pressure that the client then resists, the practitioner can evaluate the strength or weakness of each muscle, revealing the sources of injury and retraining the client’s body to remove the compensation patterns—reprogramming the body at the neural level.This easy-to-follow practitioner’

Muscle Testing - a concise manual provides a handy reference for frequently used muscle tests with anatomical and clinical facts and hints. Often muscular anatomy is taught as a dry study with the learner expected to cite origin, insertion, action, nerve supply and blood supply. This commonly used approach may not necessarily aid understanding of muscle function, nor does it relate to muscular positioning. Through muscle testing one is better equipped to consider how muscles work individually and in groups.
