How to Assess Muscle Function and Dysfunction with Muscle Testing
with Earle Abrahamson and Jane Langston
The knowledge of symmetrical movement, range of motion, contractile patterns, resistance and gravity provides a fuller picture of how muscles function individually and in working groups.
As a pre- and post- treatment assessment tool, muscle testing is designed to serve as a helpful guide for treatment choices and progress monitoring in your manual therapy practice.
In this masterclass, you will learn about the principles of muscle testing, different types of this technique as well as potential errors. Demonstrations and clinical examples will help you gain a deeper understanding of the value of muscle testing in clinic, as part of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
