What makes you sick?

I use muscle testing to decipher what is going on in someone's body. There are differing methods for muscle testing. It's quite likely if you've had an injury that a Doctor or Physio has performed some kind of muscle testing on you to test for pain, range of movement, and strength. Unfortunately, that's about as far as that type of muscle testing goes. It's good but it doesn't give a very full picture of what is going on in your body. There are 2 main types of muscle testing used by different professions for different purposes. Orthopedic Manual Muscle testing (OMMT) And Gross Manual Muscle Testing (GMMT) OMMT: any muscle of the body is “shortened” and then tested for a level of strength. If it’s working correctly then the muscle will remain strong for the duration of the short test - usually between 2 and 5 seconds If the muscle isn’t working correctly then the clinician will be able to move the joint. Example: for the bicep, the arm is bent at 90 degrees with palm facing up. The clinician will ask the client to begin to contract (bend) the arm. The clinician will oppose the force created by the client. If it remains steady then tick the box, muscle good If the clinician “wins” the muscle is weak and there is a known problem with that muscle We don’t know what the problem is, but for some reason that muscle doesn’t respond the way it should be. The whole body can be assessed in this way but it doesn’t always tell the clinician much apart from which muscles are well connected and which aren’t. Used by many manual therapists including: Doctors Chiropractors Osteopaths Physiotherapists Kinesiologists - these guys are often looking for much more than just strong or weak Sports Therapists Even some Personal Trainers who are more highly qualified GMMT: method for deciphering True from False (or more true and less true) - often used by kinesiologists …. i’m not one of those but it’s the same technique Using a simple muscle to test, the rest of the body is assessed often using touch or thought to narrow down problem areas. Incredibly fast, painless and the only limitation is knowledge Used by: Kinesiologists - primarily Me and other similarly trained therapists other smaller, less well known therapies do use muscle testing in a similar way What the therapist is usually looking for with OMMT Lack of nerve supply to an area Possibly Brain related OR Nervous System outside of the spine OR Disc issues/nerve impingement at the spine What a therapist is usually looking for with GMMT Lack of VOLTAGE to an area caused by -

  • Lymphatic Problems

  • Blood flow problems

  • Nutritional Deficiencies (or excesses)

  • Other body areas linked to a pain site

  • Chemical Imbalances

  • Emotional Links

  • Behavioural Links

  • Digestive Issues

  • Organ Problems

  • Other soft tissues

  • Associated Brain Areas

  • Relationships

  • Beliefs (that prevent healing)

  • and more

In my experience over the last 5-6 years using GMMT is a highly effective way of treating and healing pains of all varieties.

Not only does it quickly find the root causes of pains and illnesses it gives me a method of correcting them. Often much faster than traditional methods (not in all cases, but most) When you’re ready to get in touch about this i’m always here. email info@retrainpain.co.uk to ask any questions

All the best Pete
