Explanation:
Functional Neurologic Assessment and treatment methods common to the practice of applied kinesiology are presented. These methods are proposed to enhance neurological examination and treatment procedures toward more effective assessment and care of functional impairment. A neurologic model for these procedures is proposed. Manual assessment of muscular function is used to identify changes associated with facilitation and inhibition, in response to the introduction of sensory receptor-based stimuli. Muscle testing responses to sensory stimulation of known value are compared with usually predictable patterns based on known neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, guiding the clinician to an understanding of the functional status of the patient’s nervous system. These assessment procedures are used in addition to other standard diagnostic measures to augment rather than replace the existing diagnostic armamentarium. The proper understanding of the neurophysiologic basis of muscle testing procedures will assist in the design of further investigations into applied kinesiology. Accordingly, the neurophysiologic basis and proposed mechanisms of these methods are reviewed.


Key words: functional neurology, functional neurologic assessment, neurologic examination, manual muscle testing, physiology, functional medicine, functional illness, neurologic assessment, kinesiology, muscle testing, muscular strength, muscle contraction, skeletal muscle, diagnosis, physical examination.

The effects of pain are dependent on the interaction of two types of sensory receptors and their afferent pathways: nociceptors (NOCs) and MRs. Skin NOCs can be manually stimulated by pinching. Skin MRs can be manually stimulated by rubbing or stroking. These receptor-based stimuli constitute a mechanism by which inputs can be strategically introduced, as a challenge to the system’s central modulatory mechanisms. The intent of such a “challenge” is to assess the extent to which changes in sensory input create alterations of motor function.
