For an athlete to compete at their peak performance they need strength, flexibility and all of their muscles, ligaments and tendons to work optimally. If there is a problem with one of these structures there will be a muscular weakness associated with that dysfunction. Specific manual muscle testing is a skill required by any Applied Kinesiologist to effectively asses the proper functioning of the body. This skill it is a natural fit for sports injury rehabilitation and repair. By using extremely specific forms of testing it is possible to determine the causes of the particular injury and find the best, most effective way to treat it. Most injuries have more than one cause and chronic or recurring injuries are often related to problems in other areas. Many times there will be a prior history of a sore back before the leg injury or a neck pain that preceded a shoulder or arm injury. Specific muscle testing can help determine the best way to correct, repair and re-habilitate any sports injury and can help prevent injuries before they occur by detecting these imbalances and eliminating them. Applied Kinesiologists make muscles work strong. We are trained in a wide variety of muscle balancing techniques including Fascial release, Acupuncture Meridian balancing, Trigger point therapy, Muscle spindle cell and Golgi tendon organ treatments. These and many other therapies help keep all of your muscles working together and makes sure your mechanics are ready to go for optimal performance. With specific testing, the problem(s) can be detected and corrected, whether they are due to nerve root interference, a nutritional or chemical imbalance, over or under training or some other factor. Once your nerve flow, muscles, gait mechanics and other postural and reflex responses are returned to their proper balance, the athlete in you can perform at its best. You will feel the difference that attention to detail makes.
