The difference is obvious
16 Muscle Body Check
Muscle weakness is the number one cause of pain and sports injuries.
Unfortunately these weaknesses often go undetected, as manual muscle testing is a forgotten practice in Physiotherapy. Prevention of injury and pain relies on muscles functioning without undue stress and a soft tissue flexibility allowing the body to ‘give in’ to the stressful forces of trauma.
The 16 – Muscle Body Check is a unique screening of 16 of the most important muscles in the body responsible for stability, balance and power. Any one of these muscles under-functioning through weakness, no matter how mild, can lead to compensation, stiffness and pain or injury.
The test involves manual muscle resistance testing to assess the balance between the left and right sides of the body. Despite us being left- or right-side dominant, the muscles should still be able to resist a set amount of pressure without giving way, and this should be equal between the two sides. If not, then problems can arise.
Understanding any imbalance in muscle strength is the key to analysing where injury may occur, or if pain is already present, it can indicate how the pain ended up where it is. In many cases, pain is NOT in the area where the weakness is, so treating the symptoms without assessing for underlying weakness will not solve the problem.
As an example, weak shoulder muscles forces the body to compensate with neck and shoulder blade muscles, which due to overuse, become tight and painful, so neck and upper back pain can occur from weak shoulder muscles. Treating the neck and upper back only treats the result, NOT the cause.
So, if you wish to prevent injury or are already in pain and want to know why, then this test is for you. All it takes is a phone call and 30 minutes of your time in rooms, and you could prevent injury, pain, arthritis, and many more mechanical conditions.
