MUSCLE TESTING

Muscle testing is used in conjunction with Muscle Energy Techniques (METs). This is another form of sports massage and is used to restore normal tone in hypertonic muscles, strengthen weakened or flaccid muscles, increase joint mobility or range, boost local circulation and discover part of a patient’s acute or chronic problem.

Massage therapy is a hands-on approach to treatment and METs are great for achieving massage with motion. METs can identify hypertonic structures and achieve normality in the tissues, resulting in a better or normal range of motion of the joint.

Muscle testing alone can be used to demonstrate to a patient any weakness in their body, so it is a great tool to use when recommending a rehabilitation programme to do at home or with a Personal Trainer.
