What does Muscle Response Testing mean?

Muscle response testing is also known as applied kinesiology. It is a method that links the muscles in your body to the health of the organs and tissues in your body. For example, when we use this tool, we may find a specific muscle weakness present. This may indicate a distant or deeper problem related to an internal organ. It may be due to nerve damage or a limited blood supply. It could be related to chemical imbalances, too. With this tool, we can correct the muscle weakness and, in return, heal the problem with the associated organ or tissues.

When Should You Consider Muscle Response Testing?

Muscle response testing is a very important tool. That's why you'll find it available to you in our chiropractic offices. When you come in for an appointment, we may use this method to diagnose health conditions and treatment options. It can be used in a variety of health conditions including cancer, diabetes, learning disabilities, and much more.

The process allows us to determine if a muscle is "strong" or "locked" from which we can determine the best type of treatment for your needs. Muscle testing must be done as a part of a comprehensive diagnostic screening. We'll talk about your medical history, conduct a number of diagnostic tests, and provide specific information.

From this, we can create a treatment plan. It may include deep tissue massage, spinal column manipulation, dietary manipulation, and acupuncture. Each patient receives a customized treatment for their needs.
