A Unique Approach to Healing at Move Chiropractic

At Move Chiropractic, we are proud to incorporate muscle testing into our applied kinesiology chiropractic (AK) treatments. Muscle testing is a non-invasive technique that provides valuable insights into the functional status of your body. Here's how we use muscle testing to enhance patient care and promote overall well-being.


What is Muscle Testing?

Muscle testing, or manual muscle testing (MMT), is a fundamental component of applied kinesiology (AK). It involves evaluating the strength and responsiveness of various muscles to uncover underlying imbalances in the body's structural, chemical, and emotional components.

How Muscle Testing Works

  1. Initial Assessment: The chiropractor performs a physical examination and reviews your medical history. This step helps to understand the context of any symptoms you might be experiencing.

  2. Testing Individual Muscles: By applying gentle pressure to specific muscles, the chiropractor assesses how the muscles respond. A weak or imbalanced response can be indicative of underlying issues.

  3. Identifying Connections: Muscle testing helps uncover relationships between muscles and the organs or glands they are associated with. These insights guide the chiropractor in determining the most appropriate treatment approach.

  4. Personalized Treatment Plans: Using the information gathered through muscle testing, the chiropractor designs a tailored treatment plan that may include adjustments, dietary recommendations, and other therapeutic interventions.


Benefits of Muscle Testing in AK

  • Precision Diagnosis: Muscle testing enables us to pinpoint specific imbalances, providing a clear roadmap for targeted treatment.

  • Comprehensive Insight: By assessing muscular function, we can gain a better understanding of overall health, including structural, nutritional, and emotional aspects.

  • Safe and Gentle: Muscle testing is non-invasive and doesn't involve any painful procedures. It's suitable for patients of all ages.

  • Complementary to Other Treatments: Muscle testing is often used in conjunction with other chiropractic techniques, enhancing the effectiveness of your overall care.
