Learn muscle testing challenge for the spine.
In the first weekend of the Applied Kinesiology (AK) certification course for health care professionals, you will learn how to ask the patient’s body where it needs work and how to do it. This is part of the beauty of learning AK, you have a direct window of communication with the patient’s body. Here will we talk a little about the physical medicine side of things.
Stop the guess work and have certainty.
Yes, that is right! Certainty in physical medicine diagnosis. With the” therapy localization” tool in AK, you can have the patient touch a vertebra and if it needs help the muscle will go weak. And with the “vertebral challenge” tool, you can lightly push a vertebra into various directions and the body will respond to the direction that is best for it.
Many health care professionals come out of school not really confident about their skill levels in the physical medicine department. This is because palpation is a challenge to master and can take you several years to get it. Many just don’t use this extremely powerful modality of adjusting the spine like they should because of this lack of proficiency. Learning these diagnostic techniques to augment you palpation skills will aid you in your certainty in physical medicine.

This is one of the most basic procedures for diagnosis you will learn in the AK course. I can’t think of working on a patient without asking their body what it needs. Their body know much better what they need than I do. Techinques like this make working on even the toughest patients easy and fun.
